Martial Arts Topics / Proper way to condition shins
« on: March 31, 2006, 09:12:45 AM »
Does anyone have any tricks of the trade for conditioning shins? I have been using the "roll and strike" method where you roll (very hard) a stick up and down the shin and then strike the bone until basically you can't stand it.

I don't mind the pain but this method seems very slow in reducing the feeling and sensation.

I know there is no such thing as instant results but any tips would be welcome.

Martial Arts Topics / Michigan Stickfighters

Just curious as to how many full contact guys we have on here from Michigan. Would be nice for occasional training camps and maybe split gas money out to California, etc. Fight for fun, etc.

Even if somebody doesnt want to fight at a gathering, I wouldn't mind meeting a few people who would help take turns driving if I get busted up real bad.

I am not afraid to fly but would rather drive

Give me a howl or a shout.

Martial Arts Topics / The single stick
« on: March 14, 2006, 08:31:11 AM »
Just curious as to how many practitioners fight with a single stick? I had one person tell me I would be looked down on if I chose to fight with a single stick even if I switch stick hands.

I am learning what is for the most part a double stick art, but I find myself wanting to have an empty hand to grab my opponent or set up a lock/takedown.  Is this just inexperience or do some "Top Dogs" feel this way?

Martial Arts Topics / Training for Stick Fighting--Beginner

Curious as to what videos (preferably DVDs) people reccomend for a matrial artist looking to train for a full contact event. I know all the Dog Brothers videos are good and I eventually plan to get them all.....but where would you start?

I need to learn basic mechanics and techniques for training. I train and teach a Russian martial art style all the time, so I have and use many bodyweight exercises. I am not worried (too much) about my physical conditioning, just learning to use sticks properly.

I can fight (some) with a staff, but the knife is emphasized over all else in our style.

I am going to need to train alone frequently, because I wont teach anything I am unsure of to a student and I dont know a lot of FMA people.

Any advice appreciated....
