Martial Arts Topics / Barbados version: sticklicking
« on: February 12, 2005, 01:25:21 PM »
They call it sticklicking in Barbados. They would use sticks made from Guava branches. My mother(who hates stickfighting and the fact that I train  :lol: ), said men used to stickfight when she was young. My guess is that it's barely practiced now...

I think the trains are a lot better than they were in the 1980s and early 1990s. People got jumped/robbed a lot more back then.

a pair of ironwood sticks that are absolutely beautiful and great for training because they are considerably heavier than normal sticks
and the stick bag for some free advertising for him  :lol:

hmmm, i may try out the ironwood then. thx.

i wonder if i could get the stickbag for advertising also :-), they look great

I ordered one years ago, but never used it. I figured it would probably draw the wrong type of attention while traveling on trains and buses.  :lol:

Does anyone know the name/spelling of the salsa song on the Attacking Blocks video? The name of the artist would be helpful too. Thanks.

I just finished watching Walking Tall, and did a websearch on the real sheriff. It seems they are selling his stick. I would hate to get hit by this sucker! :D

Martial Arts Topics / dog brothers on dvd
« on: August 14, 2004, 09:13:13 AM »
I can't wait until the DVDs are available! I've had the tapes for some years now. I let a friend borrow #1. He left it laying around somewhere at work. OF course it disappeared. I then bought a replacement, which I kept for a while. I ended up giving it away to another friend so he could learn some of the basics. I don't know why people have such a hard time returning stuff that isn't theirs.  :evil: I am very wary about lending out training, or any other type of, videos & DVDs. Anyway, when the DVDs are available, I'll purchase Vol. 1 to make my set complete again.

Martial Arts Topics / FMA gloves
« on: July 18, 2004, 07:29:01 AM »
For sparring, most people use hockey or lacrosse gloves. For training, I've seen some people use baseball batting gloves or fingerless bicycle/weightlifter gloves. I prefer no gloves at all for training. The blisters eventually callous over...

Martial Arts Topics / purchase a knife
« on: June 03, 2004, 11:18:43 PM »
Guro Crafty,

I've watched your videos. I think the average guy with a knife wouldn't have a chance against you if you had a length of pipe.  :D Now if he's also trained in the FMA/IMA, then I could see where you'd probably want to have the knife, cause if you miss the first pipe strike, he's gonna close real fast with the knife.

Martial Arts Topics / Re: Spyderco Persian & Serrations
« on: June 03, 2004, 11:14:05 PM »
The Spyderco Persian has a blade length of 3.5". That's an error on the NewGraham website.

Serrations(and regular plain edges) are easy to sharpen if you have a Sharpmaker sharpener...

Martial Arts Topics / purchase a knife
« on: June 03, 2004, 11:02:30 PM »
"Which one would I have in my possesion?" Most likely a pocket knife. Unless I happened to be doing some sort of plumbing job. :D Or if a situation was so bad that I'd carry an ASP baton.

I personally haven't held a length of pipe that was lighter than a rattan stickof the same length & diameter. They(iron, brass, & lead pipes) usually weigh as much as a kamagong stick or heavier. One solid hit to the head, knee, or weapon hand...or any combination of the above, should end a fight...hopefully.

As for legal size, you can check your state/city laws in the library, or go to , or post the question on

I carry a Benchmade Mini-AFCK.  Sometimes in my pocket, mostly in bag with a bunch of other stuff.  I'm pretty sure the blade is slightly longer than the legal limit in CA.

Isn't the legal blade size in California 5"? I think I remember reading that somewhere. Or is that Texas? The Mini-AFCK's blade is 3.25" long. In NY, we have to stay under 4".

The "standard" diameter of rattan sticks is about 1". If you have large hands like me, you'll probably want 1 1/8" or 1 1/4" diameter sticks. I have a pair of 1 3/8" sticks from KIL that I had to retire from class use. My Guro called them tree trunks. They were destroying everyone's sticks. They are the densest pair of rattan sticks I own. You can barely see the pores in the end of the stick.

Martial Arts Topics / Surfboard Wax for stick grip?
« on: May 26, 2004, 07:10:46 AM »
I just received a Top Dog stick, and was reading your suggestions for grip retention. Using surf wax is one I've never heard of. Which wax do you all use? I checked out Mr. Zogs website, and there are probably 20 different waxes. I'm considering the Hockey wax that they sell...
