Martial Arts Topics / anyone interested in a Dallas training group?
« on: November 13, 2006, 07:12:59 PM »
I've been thinking about this for awhile and finally decided to pull the trigger on this idea.  I hear about other very successful and productive training groups in other areas and want to guage interest for something similiar in the DFW area.

Since we are here we probably have some interest in developing the skills and mindset to protect ourselves and our families, but what are we doing to continuously refine and hone those skills?  Situational awareness, hand-to-hand and shooting are perishable skills that must be practiced if you expect to have a chance of calling on them when it really counts.

I'd like to organize a group of like-minded individuals to meet on a regular, but not too demanding basis.  Just a few times a month could be enough to polish skills or learn new ones that could potentially save your life or that of someone you love.

I haven't talked with the owner yet, but I have a location in mind that could serve our purposes very well.  The DFW Gun Range has very large room with mats, mirrors, punching bags, etc in addition to a nice, recently renovated indoor range.  I think they would be game but I'll check into it if I sense there is interest.

I am no expert in anything and am not qualified to be an instructor in any of these skills but I give a shit and that is a start.  There are tremendous resources among us that could be motivated and utilized very easily.

Specifically I would like to work with material from instructors that have been of great influence to myself and that I believe offer the highest yield and most practical skills for the average man (or woman) on the street.  Examples include Southnarc, Crafty Dog and other Dog Brothers material, Rodney King's "Crazy Monkey" and street boxing system, SBG material and various other street-applicable BJJ/MMA sources.

We could train H2H, knives, close quarters gun fighting and attempt to refine mindset and situational awareness through real life case studies, force-on-force, discussions, etc.  We can make this ANYTHING the group wants.

Additionally we would have an indoor gun range on the other side of a wall.  We could incorporate live fire drills and standards to keep those skills sharp.

You don't need and background or need to be a badass to get involved, you just need to give a shit about your life and those of your loved ones.

This is completely open and would belong to all those involved.  Post here or PM me if you're interested.

I have seen your reply on the Eskrima Digest where you referred somebody to a DBMA Association member in Oklahoma City.  Could you possibly give me contact information for that person?  Thanks.

I have finally found some FMA in my area and it is a school that teaches Pambuan arnis.  Anyone hear of or practice this form?  Any info greatly appreciated.

Martial Arts Topics / any ever train in fencing?

Anyone here ever trained in fencing?  I've run across a couple of pretty high caliber fencing schools in my area.  I realize that it has devolved into a point-fighting sport, but I'm interested in hearing the opinions of anyone that has actually trained or been involved with those who train in fencing.  The duel aspect of it seems pretty cool.

Are there any correlations between fencing and FMA?

Would fencing develop any attributes useful in BJJ or vale tudo?

Any experience of insight appreciated.

Martial Arts Topics / any FMA in Oklahoma City?

I am interested in training more FMA and Dog Brothers-style stick fighting but I haven't found anywhere to train in OKC.  I know there are schools in Tulsa, but this is too far for me to travel.  Any ideas?

I know an instructor certified under Dan Inosanto by the name of Mike Parker, but he is too busy with work and JKD/MT teaching to focus on FMA.  Not sure of any others in the area.

I've gotten some instruction through my BJJ instructor, but he is too busy with a very large school to give much attention to FMA.

I have the Dog Brothers first tape set that I use to drill and for technique, but drilling in a vacuum only goes so far.

I'm even contemplating training fencing for the footwork, timing and range development.

Any suggestions?
