Martial Arts Topics / Report from Houston Stick Fighting Association
« on: December 11, 2012, 09:24:39 AM »
Woof all!  Clint Taylor and I recently made the trip to Houston for the Houston Stick Fighting Association 4th Quarter Gathering. They are a loose association of several different schools who get together 3-4 times annually for some full contact stick fighting. The spirit is always supportive and educational, and there are several styles of FMA represented by the different schools (and sometimes WMA also).  Here's a couple clips of Clint and I in a couple matches.  This crazy fringe thing that we do is slowly growing! Thanks to Jason Evans for organizing and Eddie Martinez for hosting!

Martial Arts Topics / Tribal Gathering Spring 2013

I am taking the liberty of opening this thread because I am EXCITED and have some serious goals and preparation. Guro Crafty, I hope I have not overstepped my bounds.....

But now that the Open is over and we are taking stock and setting goals, I thought this is important enough to post here as a postlude and a prelude. The finish of one Gathering marks the start of preparation for the next, so...... start thinking about how you will apply your lessons for the Tribal!

 The Tribal is different than the Open. It is truly not to be missed. I can not put it into words, but EVERY fighter who is not a tribe member should be aspiring and every one who is a tribe member and has gone understands.  I don't get chatter before the Open anymore. I ALREADY have chatter for the Tribal. Challenging C-Yo Dog and Mongolian Dog probably have something to do with that (under the category of "it seemed like a good idea at the time"), but that's the kind of people you fight EVERY FIGHT. There are NO junk fights. Plus, it counts as 2 gatherings toward advancement (each day is separate). Mark your calendars now and start planning for May because the Tribal is the NUTS!
Hope to see you there! Make it a priority and TRAIN!
