Martial Arts Topics / lonely dog seminar!
« on: March 12, 2006, 03:03:27 PM »
wow what a day! just got home from lonely's seminar in hannover, germany! that was fan-friggin-tastic! he taught (of course) in german and from time 2 time i would miss a detail or 2, but he cleared it up 4 me right away. i learned allot 2day.
i was a little annoyed with my training partner. felt he was more worried about impressing lonley than getting a good grasp on what was being taught, b4 he went all out, but that wasnt so bad.
a great day all around and i am looking forward 2 working with him again.
i really hope that i can get it 2gether and catch guru crafty when he comes 2 europe!
if anyone is considering a seminar or P.t. w/ one of the dogs, dont hesitate! make it happen! it is more than worth it!

ok, heres the problem. i cant always work with a partner and i need 2 hit something! so i want 2 start working a tire, but i live in an apartment and there is no room n the basement. anybody have any ideas about what i can do/build? not 2 thrilled about the idea of holes in the wall and my girlfriend wont be 2 happy about a tire standing around so, i would prefer something free standing. any products out there?

Martial Arts Topics / clear something up

woof all,
the thread from "the vampire hunter"( i would love 2 hear that story), brought up a couple of questions 4 me as well.
the first is in regard 2 choosing sticks.
in the footwork dvd, G-top dog made a comment that one of the fighters "has an advantage with his longer, heavier sticks." how does one choose the right stick? is that personal taste? i have a pair that R fairly long and a pair that i cut a bit shorter ( i kept getting tangled up during siniwali). i have a better feel with the shorter pair. i feel  like i can generate more power. R heavier sticks allowed @ the gatherings? or only rattan? (safety issues?)

second question is about grappling.
@ the moment  that is my weakspot. what can i do alone? i will start a bjj class soon, but i want speed up the learning curve!!!!!  it seems that many of the DB fighters i have seen, love 2 take things 2 the ground as quickly as they can. am i wrong there?
