This guy needs some help in the reality department. We can all take videos out of context but it really serves no purpose.

BTW - I apologize if this has already been posted.

Somebody jokingly said "Farm Dog" but SB Mig is correct. Fred went with "C-Sun Dog"

This was my first gathering, and thanks to all for making it a great experience. Wish there had been more time to chat, the day went by so fast, and congrats to all those promoted!

Maija - Thanks for letting me share your vantage point on the truck roof. Next time though, try not to knock over the scaffolding making such a loud ruckus!  :lol:

Woof Dog Cory (AKA Dog Pound)!

That is an interesting phenomena you bring up. More than a few of the tribe are now very close friends with my wife and I. As a matter of fact, I had three Dog Brothers, three Candidate Dog Brothers and one Candidate Cat at my wedding reception which was held last November after my wedding in Costa Rica. Each Gathering strengthens our ties and adds more friends and comrades to our circle of friends. Great Gathering all and looking forward to many more to come!

I was going to respond with my typical routine but it seems as though Tom beat me to it. Mine is slightly different but the principle is the same. Try that and you can't go wrong.

A bit of a drive for me as well but I might be able to pull it off. My first thoughts would be what BJJ class is available prior to the DBMA class so I can kill two birds with one stone. Rigan's site lists a no gi class at 5:30 pm. Anybody know how current this is? (Phone # didn't seem to work...) Thanks!

Question for Crafty: Will sparring be involved?  :-D

Interesting read CWS. I tried shock knife vs. stick in the last gathering and had worked the scenario and tactics out in my head over and over again to be the knifer. As far as I was concerned there was no way I wanted the stick as the common perception is the knife will always win in the end. (At least the common perception in MY mind). Apparently my opponent felt the same way as neither of us could agree to be the stick so we decided to let fate pick. We had Crafty hold up fingers behind his back and unfortunately I got the stick.

At this point I didn’t really have a game plan for the fight however as he came at me from the start I got him with a good shot to the head and a quick follow up to the wrist/hand area of the knife hand. (At least this is what I recall, adrenaline has a way of messing with memory it seems). After that it was all downhill as I believe he stabbed me 10+ times in the ribs as he clinched and I got stuck in the corner. What I didn’t do effectively was move and by reading about your training with Marc I can see that is of high importance. The reach advantage of the stick was only good until he closed the distance with my lack of movement. I also pulled the monkey with his hand in the cookie jar trick in that I held onto the stick in the clinch when it was no longer of use when I should have been defending against the knife with both hands. Defending the sewing machine with one hand is no bueno.

In hind site I was dead many times over but I do have to wonder how the strikes to the head and to the wrist would have been without the equipment in a real situation. Would it have made enough of a difference to survive a real attack or just that he would go to the hospital with a concussion while I went in the morgue? This is an experiment that needs more work for me.

Thank's man I might need to get a couple of those?

They do add a bit of realism that the training knives are lacking in that they provide instant feedback. The tricky part was timing the strike with pushing the button. A couple times I forgot to push it when I was attacking and Ryan got me once in the side without the shock working. I'll tell you one thing though the prongs definitely have the potential to cause some damage. I still have a scar from that hit to my side.  :|

That fight was one of the more interesting that I’ve done however that’s for sure!  :-D
