I wanted to post about my wonderful adventuring Training with the Crafty Dog here in Phoenix. This is cut and pasted from the members forum. Your not on the members site? What!!! Your loss Bro.!! WOOF!!

Woof, Thank you Guro Crafty for a great weekend of training!! It was great to see you and not only train, but spend time with you. .

All, Our adventure was one of a private nature, our group is small and we had 4 of the desert dogs in attendance. Guro Crafty knows all of us, and we were VERY privledged to be able to take part in some of his "Killing knife training" This material is super fantastic, super deadly, super fun to train and SUPER SERIOUS BAD ASS stuff!!! Not for the faint of heart. (seriously)

If ever you get the chance to spend time with Guro Crafty and train this material I HIGHLY recommend you take advantage of this!! Trust me you will be Blown away.
I can't wait to get into this material further and deeper as we just got the introduction version. (which is deadly as h#ll in its own right)
TAC  WOOF!!   Howling Dog

Woof Dog Terry, That sucks. I think you would like the Best Western that PK is talking about. If she can get a group/DB rate I will go back there also.
If memory serves me right, the reason we changed from there was that after our inital stay there, we checked to use it again and the rates had gone up pretty significantly. (So we looked else where)
Since that time though we have found that the rates do change depending on the season or events.

For the record, I did not care for the Hacienda hotel in El Segundo, and some of the guys used to like to stay there.
I'm sorry about your bad experience at the Quality Inn, I feel some what responsible. WOOF!

Woof Dog Terry, Wow!! Not my experience at all. I have recommended this hotel to people in the past and never have had a experience like this before. Also I have never paid more than 100 dollars a night for a room, usually less, how come your room was so much?.
Was this during the tribal Gathering that this occurred?  You never said anything and I don't recall any of the other guys saying anything?
I'm surprised to hear this.
I have also stayed at the Hotel PK Is talking about. Its nice there.  WOOF!  :-(

It is just a matter of how much you want it , , , grin

I know there are others as well, but I travel a hour one way in the rush hour traffic(Phoenix) to train.
               Howling Dog

Woof, Can anyone recommend a decent hotel near Gokor's gym?

Woof!! There's a semi challenge on the Dog Brothers facebook page to make this Gathering the largest yet (Registered fighters) So I'm encouraging everyone to get off the fence and step up to the plate and get into this most awesome event.
Trust me you will be glad you did!! Now lets flood Pretty Kitty with those forms (Legit forms)
WOOF!!   Howling dog

Woof Guide Dog!! I never knew you had it in you!!  :-D Nice post!!
            Howling Dog

I would like to bring my "chucks" but as a newbie I do not how realistic all of this is.  I will probably get the crap kicked out of me in the first fight...

Bring your "Chucks" I'm pretty sure you will find someone to fight you with them.  As far as realistic goes. VERY! As real as it gets.
Be ready to fight hard.
            Howling Dog

Woof Pappydog! Thank you for your service!! We will miss you at the Open, but not only NOHO but all of us will be fighting for you at this Gathering!
Be safe!!    WOOF!!  Howling dog

Woof, TTT Just wanted to repost that I'm in Tempe Az, Just added 1 new guy to the group so we have a small group started. Anyone wants to join us,Give me a Bark.
Btw, It's free.  :wink:

Woof, Looking forward to hearing more of whats on the menu, for this event. Something along the lines of RCSF Sounds appetizing.  8-)

Woof, In the event of some leisurly down time, I'm wondering if anyone would be interested in trying out bending some steel.
It has great benefits to grip, wrist and forearm strength.
I will be more than happy to bring my stuff, if anyone wants to give it a go.

Woof Bro, return PM sent.

Woof, Nice to meet with Darin and his son today. Hopefully this is the start of many more good training days ahead, as well as the beginning of a Phoenix area Dog Brothers group.
Any others out there on the fence in the Phoenix area....C'mon and get in.....Good times to be had! WOOF!

@GM all good. Its a rather unusual email address I know. Its all in good fun, and intended to be taken lightly.  :-D

Woof, Looking forward to meeting with Darin Tomorrow. Anyone else in the Phoenix/Tempe area interested, Hit me up!

"What the hell happened to you?"  shocked

If your asking about the name, Its a old joke. If your asking about Where have I been? I usually hang out on the members site, and don't post too much on the public forum.

Woof, I just moved to Tempe Az. a short time ago.
I'm Looking for training partners no experience necassary.  If anyone wants to get together and swing some sticks, PM me here or shoot me a email:

Woof Sled Dog, I'm glad to hear of what your doing and your progress. Stay with it Brother and make it a life long habit.
I turned 50 this year and have no intentions of slowing down.
I think your going to be well pleased with the levels you can get your self to.
Never be satisfied with where your at and never give in.........
As is a saying in DBMA "Consistency across category's"!
As for swinging a stick at a Gathering. IMO A older wiser high skilled guy is a force to be recconned with!
Old guys Rule!! WOOF!

Woof GC, Very cool seats! Also tough tickets to get. I looked for you, but alas to no avail.  :-)

And so goes the heavy weight div.....CV is a very good well rounded fighter with plenty of gas in the tank.
But we are back to the 230 something pound heavy weights, which is ok...but I don't see him holding the title long.
I can remember when everyone  including myself thought Andre Arlovski was the next big thing  :-D
Jr. Dos Santos waits in the wings......and has a decent chance to be the next champ.

His power has proven to be too much thus far....

« on: October 10, 2010, 06:02:12 AM »
Woof, I would say talent is a relative term. As is skill.
When I made my post I was refering to those who reach Championship level, top tier,  break world records or compete at the elite level.
No matter how hard some work or over come....Its just a matter of fact that, there are only a few that reach the level I described.

A rare combination, of physical and mental gifts, as well as finding the perfect venue to use them.

Yes others can also be "skilled" because the work hard, but would it not be better to call them...."Good", "above average"....or even "ok"
I may have missed the point some where, as to what "skilled" really means.

« on: October 09, 2010, 11:20:54 AM »
Woof, Genetics and knowing your strengths play a vital role. Not to mention a strong mental drive that allows a person to push his physical limits, where as most, will let their minds say...."stop thats too hard"   :-D

Woof, The open Gathering quickly approaches. Its is the only Open gathering here in the U.S. this year. So If your New to the Gatherings or on the fence about fighting, Allow me to encourage you to take the plunge and give it a go.
A experience like this,  there is none like it. So get that registration in and come on out.

Woof, I have one of these and am thinking about bringing it to the Sept. Gathering.
Whats the thought. Woul you fight with it, or against it?
Theres pro's and con's on both sides.

If your intrested lets talk.  :wink:  :evil:

Woof, I just put my registration form in the hands of the United states postal service.  :-D  :mrgreen:
Looking forward to seeing my name added to the fighters list.

I would like to put out a friendly challenge to all potential state side fighters (Euros as well, if you can make it)
The Euro Gathering is quickly approaching and they have a impressive 55 registered fighters.
Challenge goes out to meet or exceed that number at the Sept. open U.S. Gathering.  :wink:
C'mon people step up.

Woof Jkrenz,

Definetly not my call, but I'm not sure you fit the criteria for the "Tribal Gathering"
Its for tribe members only.

You bring up some good points, but Chuck survived a loooooooong time with a deep understanding of takedown defense.

Chuck's wrestling is highly under rated. He was a good  college wrestler. Cal. poly sci. I beleive.
He just likeS to stand and bang.  :wink:
My opinion, Crazy Cossack made many real good points.

Woof, With 2 weeks till camp time, I would hope this event is sold out.

Though I would say, If there are still spots open and your able to go and don't, thats a foolish move on your part.  :|

I would also say, regardless as to how good you think your ground game is,EVERYONE would benifit from attending this camp.
That is if your really serious about your fight game.
Esp. If your simply a orthodox wrestler or Bjj practioner.

Woof, I would hope that since this event is in L.A.,... Home base for a large portion of the Tribe, that there is limited space left availble.
Esp with all the great dicounts being offered  to our military brothers.
I know that if I were within driving distance rather than 3,000miles away I would be there.
Can't wait hear all the reports on what we all know will be a great event.....
Shame on you if your in the area and don't attend! Oppertunity lost.

Woof, Just my 2cents worth.
As for the stickfighting portion its going to be very hard if you don't have a training partner, I know from experience that its really hard to do drills alone and stuff like that. 

Kinda. The original real contact stcik fighting series is pretty much desigend for solo training. I highly recommend this series for any begginer. Its outstanding and can be done alone.

As far as the balls for stickfighting things... In my experience it's not nearly as painful as it looks.

I'm not sure of Crazy Cossacks experience, but from my experience, I've seen plenty of guys go from the gathering to the hospital,  plenty of guys knocked out cold, cut,(in need of stitches) ect, ect.
I personally have broken a knuckle. feel fortunate thats the worst for me, though I have been clobbered pretty severly from time to time. :roll:
...I guess we could conclude pain is relative. :lol:

Foxmarten is giving you some good advice.....and now is the time to think of your family and yourself.
Please pursue aggresevliy all that you can get from the U.S. Navy.
You have earned it and as a tax payer I owe it to you.

Woof Blackwolf, I hear you. I also live in a small town(about 30,00) here in Ohio....I often wish I was closer to Guro Crafty, and the Calif clan.
However take the Bull by the horns and get your own group going.
I don't know what your martial arts background is...but Through the DBMA Its entirely possible.
I started training Dog Brother material (Real contact stick fighting tapes) Mine are vhs. :-D
Progressed to the attacking blocks tapes and  the others.....
Made a trip to Calif. did some Private triaining...with Guro Crafty and so the adventure began........Six years latter I have fought in several gatherings......I'am stoked to the gills to say I was promoted to Candidate Dog brother.....had the honor of having Guro Crafty here for a day of private training(Ohio)....He was doing a seminar in Akron.........and the adventure truley continues and its a blast!
So long story short.......You can do all the things you want to do with DBMA.......Put some feet to it......and let it happen and watch it grow.......
I thinks its safe to say....that this is a very tight group......Guor a great leader of the pack....and we all take intrest in each other as individuals......
So be positive and build your own group.....It starts with you...but were all here to help.
I might also put a plug in to join the members site....lots to be gleaned there as well.........
If I can help in anyway....please let me know.
                                                                  C- Howling Dog

Woof Guro Crafty, No argument that the internet is the best easiest way to divuldge info.
Heres another thought.....
Knowing that there are thousands of Filipino's working thru-out the Mideast.....a good possiblity that theres a strong FMA influence right in the Bad guys backyard?
                                        TG/ C-HD

Woof, I did'nt see the John Bolton interview, but with regard to AQ and their link to the Muslim radical factions of Mindinao Philippines ( actual name escapes me at the moment)
Would it not stand to reason they would have access to actual FMA training not to mention the Indonesian conection?
