just for the record, i am not a DB.

but it takes practice. different people have different ways to train and to deal with the adrenaline dump and the "fear".

glad to hear you and your GF are safe.  domestic squabbles are hard to deal with. usually the wife/GF will side with her husband/BF if they see them being beaten up despite them asking for help.

very tough situation. it could've gone done much worse for you. not sure if you were aware of how bad it could've really been. although you had the right intentions of helping someone you perceived to be in need, you do not know the whole situation. it could've been a setup or it could've been domestic violence. regardless, glad to hear you and your GF are safe.

if it was me, i would've called the police and despite me wanting to stay and help the girl, i would've left. it would not help my family for me to end up hurt. despite this sounding mean and uncaring but it's not, in today's society, sometimes it is in your best interest not to get personally/physically involved. calling the police is the best option IMO.

a pair of ironwood sticks that are absolutely beautiful and great for training because they are considerably heavier than normal sticks

forgive me for keeping it within the Tribe, but DB Pappy Dog makes excellent rattan sticks. i've read many, many people on the forums rave about how long his sticks last. i believe he also sells fencing masks.

in the past, i got my order processed very fast. i cannot recommend him highly enough. and i do not work for him and am not a Dog Brother.

Summer Gathering 2003 Report

Pinoy Maynard Ancheta came in with an interesting and different structure that allowed for good range control via chamber and footwork shifts.  When I asked him in class the next week what he had been using he told me it was his interpretation of Hsing Yi empty hand :-o  Interesting.


i would like to hear more about this if possible from any spectators, Pinoy Maynard Ancheta or Guro Crafty.


Martial Arts Topics / kick and sticks

woof guest :D :

from my understanding:  with the krabi krabong training of Ajarn Salty Dog, DBMA has integrated kicks with stickwork effectively. there is a vidclip of the DBMA video Krabi Krabong on the site which will show the kicks - check it out.

also, Ajarn Salty Dog recently had an article published in Black Belt regarding KK.

and is there a new pack forming....

from my understanding, there is only ONE pack which may consist of active and inactive members.

and like Ed, i'm not a DB. take this for what's it worth.

try for laws. also check out your state attorney general's website. they should have laws there also.

in NY, balisong's are not considered fixed or folding blades but considered like switchblades, therefore it's illegal. fixed or folding blades of 4" or less are legal.

good luck in your search.

my work firewalls prevent me from accessing yahoo groups. there is a yahoo group called mande muda (or some variation of MM). you may get a good reply there.

I proably need to come up with a better term than "puppy training".

actually, i think with the dog motif, "puppy training" is apt :-)

Martial Arts Topics / Explaining all this to civilians
« on: June 27, 2003, 02:47:03 PM »

good q. they know of my MA interest and sometimes they see me surfing the MA forums and when they see pix of guys grappling, they do tend to think of some deviant behavior to which i say you ever watch the UFC. some of them did and immediately they understood. the others who have not seen the UFC, i just say it's like HS/college wrestling. however, ihave not dared to show them the DB gallery yet :-)

i have brought in my photo album of MA instructors doing various stickgrappling techniques on me and show them. and they take it in stride. there's a picture of a 70+ year old GM stickchoking me and they ask he could be your grandfather, why don't you kick his butt? to which i just laugh and say, this 70+ year old GM could probably kill each and every one of us all together if locked in a room.

funny thing, they are intimidated by me thinking i'm into MA and must know how to kick their butt, even by guys who are taller and outweigh me. but predominately, they are misinformed and go by what they see in the movies. i do not bother to correct them as they would not really understand or take the time to understand. so i let them think i'm a killer MAist :-)

Martial Arts Topics / Metronome training?
« on: June 12, 2003, 08:33:44 AM »

like the metronome used in music, it doesn't speed up/slow down on its own. it is a steady rhythm. the feeder could internally count 1-2-3-4 (or 1-2-3 or whatever) as he feeds or could do it verbally to maintain the slow steady rhythm. at least, that is the way i train it using the metronome concept.

woof Guro Crafty:

thank you - i'm learning from one of the best :-)

however, thank you for the insight in your more complete reply. it actually cleared something up for me:  i thought the person feeding was called "the metronome". now i know.

i have 2 training partners that are more experienced than me and i tend to unconsciously speed up. after learning about the metronome method, it is much better for us now.

thank you!

from my understanding, it is like the metronome you know. not like capoiera or the muay thai music to speedup/slow down the fight.

the "feeder" in the traditonal sense of the term (as opposed to Sayoc Kali usage) will feed steady strikes and the "receiver" in the traditonal sense of the term and not sayoc kali usage or in DBMA parlance, the "fighter" will do his techniques. this way, you can train and not "compete". we've all had feeders who sometimes sped up or are too slow. with the metronome, it's slow and steady rhythm.
