Martial Arts Topics / Dogs Best Friend:

I was wondering what kind of Dog is a Dog Brothers Best Friend?

*(Canine pictures only)

This is mine, "SAM" son

Lets see some pics and tell some stories...


I know how most of us have certain items that become special after being worn at such a life altering event.  With the chaos and excitement that accompanies things such as these, certain items are often missplaced or picked up during the shuffle that may or may not be ours.  This thread has been started with the hope of returning such things to their rightful home...

As I was clearing the CCP area I was one of the last, if not the last to depart PH gym.  I have the following and would like to help them find their way home  :wink:

1.  A black/blue bandanna...  I am assuming it is C-Dog Rene's

2.  An all black double edge Sharkie training blade

3.  A yellow/black rash guard with "bjj revolution" logo

Please hit me back either here or with a PM and I will be sure they find their way back home.

Honor, Courage & Commitment,

"Semper Fi",


Will consider trade for a picture of my shooting Bitch Linda  :lol:

Martial Arts Topics / Man Kills Bear w/ stick:

There is a great video interview attached.  

I think this guy should be made an Honorary Dog Brother  :wink:   8-) 

First document case of a man crushing a bears skull with a stick.

The man's got some mean sutres the back of his skull.

Man Kills Bear With a Stick

Walking softly in bear territory may not be a good idea, but carrying a big stick certainly is -- when you're as brave as Jim West, that is.

West was out walking alone with his dogs in the forest behind the gymkhana grounds near Green Lake early Saturday afternoon when he was attacked by a black bear.

"I was looking for moose signs because my stepson has a limited entry tag," he said in an interview shortly after the incident.

As they strolled along facing into the wind, West was calling out to his black labs, Shadow and Chopper, who were happily flushing grouse and wagging their tails.

"All of a sudden I heard a kind of a huff and a growl off to my right, and when I turned around there was a bear six feet away. I had no opportunity to hit the ground like I should, so I just started to kick it in the face. It jumped up and took a snap at my face, split my upper lip, and then I hit the ground, and it jumped on top of me, tore my scalp and bit my left arm."

At this point the dogs came back and managed to distract the bear, so it proceeded to go after them. As soon as West moved, the bear attacked him again, putting him back on the ground a second time, and cutting his right arm. Then the dogs intervened again and West heard one of them yelp.

"I just jumped up and grabbed a stick, and the bear turned around and came running right at me and I hit it once; it started to shake its head, and I just kept swinging like it was a sledgehammer and I ended up crushing it's skull."

Once the conservation officer who attended the scene had confirmed the bear was indeed dead from blows to the head, he told West that he believed no one had ever done this before.

"I don't know why, it was the easiest thing in the world to do -- when you have a choice of either living or dying. I felt that I'd been on the ground twice and, if I went down a third time, I wouldn't get up. I wasn't gonna go down, so I just starting swinging."

Once West observed blood running from the bear's nose, he knew the job was done and the bear was dead or dying, so he dropped the stick and told his dogs it was time to go. After walking at least a kilometre back to his truck with his shirt wrapped around his head to stem the bleeding, West then drove himself and his dogs to nearby Little Horse Lodge, arriving at around 2 p.m.

"Jim came in and said 'I just got attacked by a bear, so call 9-1-1,'" said Ellie Scott of Little Horse Lodge. "I helped with First Aid, and to patch him up and calm him down -- he was in shock."

Luckily, although his home is in the area, West remained rational enough to stop at the lodge, in case emergency personnel had trouble finding his place.

The conservation officers attending the scene went out immediately to search for the bear and subsequently found two cubs as well, which were put down. The conservation officers' Predator Attack Team will be investigating the incident, including a necropsy (animal autopsy) to be performed on the sow within the next couple of weeks.

Ambulance and First Responders arrived approximately half hour after the 9-1-1 call and transported West to hospital, where he received 60 stitches to his scalp, face, left arm (in three places), right arm and lip.

"I haven't been able to find any injuries on my dogs. I think one of them may have been cuffed with a paw, so I'm going to check them out again later -- right now they are pretty excited to see me," said West on Sunday, just shortly after returning home from picking up his large Labs, who were looked after by Scott and her family at the lodge while he was in hospital.

The conservation officer told him he was very lucky to have survived such an attack.

"In that sort of situation, you only one choice -- it's live or die." said West. "Most people are too scared to think about living."

West doesn't think of himself as overly tough, however, and maintains the belief that for anyone placed in that situation, "it's just a matter of whether you want to live or not."

It also doesn't hurt, though, to have strength, courage -- and carry a big stick.

Martial Arts Topics / June 2007 Gathering
« on: March 10, 2007, 03:06:57 PM »
As this will be my first DB's gathering and I plan on fighting, I am curious about the amount of experienced fighters that will be participating.  I know that this poll does not give one a true idea of a fighters background or experience.  However, I am curious about how many "Gathering of the pack" first timers plan on fighting.

With Respect,

Why not go until submission or until the other guy quits.  A partner could throw in the towel or have a safe word to say when he/she has had enough.  Just a question.

Just wanted to share...  Training is going well here in NC, USMC Base Camp Lejeune, Harper Kajukenbo.  In our time of preparing for the realities of combat we have been pushing our training harder all the time.  I think we are almost there.  During stickfights among our Ohana here last weekend many left with bruises and a higher consciousness for the realities of mortal combat.  One left with a broken arm that is now in a full arm cast.  Injuries will recover before next deployment.  I can't remember who said it first,
"The More We Sweat (Hurt & Bleed  :twisted: ) In Training, The Less We Bleed (or Die :cry: ) In Combat!"

Please Support Our Troops (all we ask for is your love for our desire to preserve OUR way of life.)
