It was cool seeing a Dogbrother(tm) cornering in the UFC. Are there any more other than Lucky Dog that are active in the organization?

Thats' the thing that gets me most- he's not from Mexico. His Dad became a naturalized citizen on his SEVENTH try. Cain is an American. So he can't be the First Mexican HW champ. It really has nothing to do with race- I'm upset with the fact that Dana White has politicized my one escape from the real world in  MMA.

I agree Kozcheck sure comes off as a a**hole. This will be the first time I am cheering for GSP...

strange, i don't see Chad's votes for ufc 113. unless he didn't get a chance to get his votes in on time.

this ufc ran the gamut of outcomes... congrats to Shogun on KO victory! Alan Belcher with a slam to RNC. Daley with a cheap shot on Koscheck. Kimbo getting his leg chopped down by Mitrione. MacDonald with a broken leg!

Epic Fail on my part... I thought we were abandoning that site. UFC 113 was the best night of fights in recent memory I doubt either Evans or Jackson can beat Rua. I will go back to for the next one... sorry SG.

During the XKL last week in Minneapolis a fighter used "what a wonderful world" by louis armstrong (he won)

woof Chad,

very strange, now i see your votes. but i don't see it for previous events.

thx on score, but it wasn't so good. the previous one with ufn 21-florian x gomi, i scored 200+, that was way better, close if not surpassing my first time trying ufc fantasy out... beginner's luck strikes again finally lol


Went to check today and both of our votes are missing for UFC 112!

Good post. I have a question- Is your criteria for categorization is that the imagined opponent is of roughly equal size, alone and presumably unarmed? Or do you have a second mental flow chart for situations requiring nonlethal restraint tech's, multiple opponents, etc?

I look forward to some of the DBMA instructors and/Guro response, but FWIW, my philosophy is to practice to stay fit, learn new tech's for fun, and focus on the functional.

I got my picks in for this event- be on the lookout for TEOTWAWKI!


woof Chad:

loooong time!

ufc fantasy site sux dog poopoo... i cannot see others' votes. i just logged in and cannot even see my own votes under view league votes, but if i went to review vote i can see my picks... it seems like the past events were like that. i don't know if others in our league voted or not on the past ufc's... i missed a few, mostly minor events, but major events i've been voting. i may have missed one.

maybe it's my browser? or maybe that site sux cos it's hard to view league votes for some reason.


Yes I would not say it is user-friendly. try this:

1. Login
2. On the lefthand vertical menu select "My League"
3. On the Horizontal menu that appears, select "View League Votes"
4. Directly below the menu will be two drop down menus one for your league "ALL DOGS GO TO HEAVEN" and the event.
The current default for events is "UFC 112: INVINCIBLE" Use the Event drop-down to select the one you want.
5. Click the square "Go" button
6. Each league member that voted will have a red "+" in front of their name, click that plus sign and their picks will appear.
You can also see your own picks this way.

Hopefully that works we had IE6 here at work until recently and it worked fine...

It's just you and me now we need to do good through UFC 115 to win prizes - but we can draft more players before UFC 113
so anyone reading this thats wants to play hit me up.

my apologies for slack during the summer months reguarding the UFC fantasy league. My picks for the 16th are in. The fantasy league continues to be open for dog brothers/friends/family. email me if you would like an invite.

I will post a UFC Fight Night thread in the public forums where we can discuss reactions and talk trash between bouts. I should get it up and running just prior to 8PM EST. Join me through the event and during the premeire of TUF: Heavyweights.

This thread will be for all forum members, not just fantasy leaguers- but be warned there will be SPOILERS!!

ronin informed me that what looked like sapus to me is in shotokan.  i don't doubt that the techniques that we see in one style/system will exist in another system. after all, we all have 2 arms and 2 legs and limited range of motion. although one of my training partners has his black belt in shotokan, he didn't see the clips yet nor do we go over shotokan when we do train.

Woof SG,

heres a good article on Lyoto:

Here's a clip relevent to Shotokan:

“I’m still a counter-striker, but now I keep going forward. I stay aggressive. I wanted to show people more of my technique. I wanted to show them that I could knock a guy out.” Why? Because unlike what you might assume after having watched Machida dance away from trouble for most of his career, the key distinction between Shotokan and other forms of karate is not defensive technique— which is more or less consistent throughout every karate sub-discipline—but the art of the power strike. “One punch has to take the guy down,” he explains. “But you have to strike at the right time and at the right distance.”

And that’s when it truly begins to make sense. Machida hasn’t merely made a politically expedient decision to curry favor with the UFC brass and its fans. He’s fi ghting for his family’s honor; he’s taking it personally. “I’m trying to bring out the essence of karate as a martial art, not the sport of karate, not what you see in karate competition,” he tells me. “In pure karate, there’s knees and elbows and different types of strikes, and I’m trying to bring back that type of style.” In other words, Machida has decided to send a message to the uninitiated: If you think Shotokan fi ghters can’t knock a man out, you better watch yourself, because Lyoto Machida is about to violently demonstrate the error of your ways. And while he may have been untouchable during his UFC run thus far, he has only begun to realize his full potential.

Most evidence seems to suggest that Brazilian dance-fighting isn't very effective in an actual MMA match. But the doubters were proved wrong on Saturday night, as a Capoeira practitioner named Marcus "Lelo" Aurelio (not to be confused with Maximus) scored one of the most epic knockout-kicks in history at a North American Challenge event in North Vancouver. Aurelio's opponent Keegan Marshall was clearly unprepared for the whirling-dervish routine, and let his hands drop at juuuuuust the wrong moment; the devastation comes at the vid's 0:31 mark. After checking to see if Marshall is still alive (he was), Aurelio commemorates the moment with a victory dance that lasts about as long as the fight itself. Enjoy it, buddy — these kinds of things don't happen very often.

As far as the refs go, I guess you get what you pay for.  Seems like a sport with this high a PPV gross could afford some full time guys.

I think they are paid by the athletic commission to keep a certain level of impropriety. I'm not sure I would be cool with the UFC paying this guys directly, or even giving bonuses for title bouts or the like. Best to keep the organization and the commission completely seperate, IMHO.

White says officiating in MMA is terrible, there's only three good refs
By Steve Cofield

The officiating inside the cage at UFC 96 was a big topic in the aftermath. Referee Rick Fike started the night off in dubious fashion and Yves Lavigne almost got Pete Sell killed. That prompted UFC president Dana White to go on a tiraDe. He's so unhappy with the state of officiating in mixed martial arts that he stated there's only three good referees. And even those guys, he had trouble recalling.

That's cool. I always thought counting coup was a "I could have killed you right there- you only live by my will" kind of thing?
I've noticed this in some DB video clips where even when the fight is called the winner still mimes the killing blow. One in particular comes to mind but I can't remember where I seen it (might of been the NatGeo stuff). Anyway, I would like to hear more about the Tohkala if you have more info.

This fake emotional rollercoaster is one reason I don't even own a TV any more.

Here is a quote from Mike Dolce's blog from TUF 7. At the time, most of the MMA fans around the net basically blamed Docle for being hypersenetive. That was the last season I watched after Dana White dropped Jesse Taylor from the finale (which was good), then brought him back  :x  Of course when we as a society as a whole put these people (athletes, musicians, politicians) on a pedestal, as more than human, how should we expect them to act? inhuman.

"Personally, I knew something was seriously wrong with this production when, as a sequestered, professional athlete in the midst of a major sporting event, I could not obtain a free range chicken breast for almost 48 hours of repeated requests, but a bottle of tequila, a half rack of beer and a funnel could be delivered in twenty minutes at any time of day or night with a single belligerent phone call. All under the guise of trying to determine just who was The Ultimate Fighter…the epitome of professional athletics.

 To me The Ultimate Fighter is a term that should be reserved for a gentleman-athlete who stands above his peers, not just in his ability to perform within the confines of competition, but within the confines of civility and life.

 Call me an old-fashioned square but, “It is the Ul-ti-mate,” right?

 That is a very definite term with no room for flaws, inside the cage or not.

 Is Spike TV, The Ultimate Fighter, the UFC or our rapidly growing fan-base really interested in finding the next great representative that can cause the most destruction to a rented home while getting drunk, pissing his pants and sacrificing his dignity?

 I don’t think so.

 Are they looking for a house full of socially inept, moral delinquents that couldn’t channel their mental energy into anything more meaningful than a wall mural of penises and vaginas?

 What was once a ground-breaking format that introduced the world to the most exciting combat sport in history, has slowly degraded into a low-brow compilation of alcohol induced, frat boy antics that could serve to destroy the very concept it was intended to create. "

So then there is only "knowledge" it is neither dangerous or righteous. It is used for good or bad only in its application. It is the "heart" of the person that posses that knowledge. hmmm...

I certainly don't envy those of you who teach the kind of knowledge that can be used to kill. It is easy to determine the "heart" of someone decorated with swaztica tattoos, but not so much with the guy who could be a closet wife-beater.

Pretty sure this is NOT Legit.

"fight club" offering Kali-Tudo classes

Quote from: fight club
Kali-Tudo - This system was originally created in Indonesia and south eastern Asia. Kali-Tudo was first brought to America by Dog Brothers martial arts, where much like it's asian counterpart, it's viewed as a sport and fighting art. Kali-Tudo is much like Vale-Tudo (Brazilian MMA), except that Kali Tudo involves weapons instead of empty hand fighting.

Single stick, double sticks, stick and knife, knife, double knife, bo, nunchaku and more are all available for point fighting in Kali-Tudo. This system teaches weapons and more weapons and is as useful as a sport, as it is as a self-defense system.

You can even be ranked in Kali-Tudo!  :roll:

I "rescued" this from the dumpster at work it is a 185lb "dragging dummy" I guess the SWAT guys got tired of dragging around or got money for a new one. I was thinking of either hanging it for tire-type drills or mounting to the wall like a wooden dummy. If you had one what would do with? More specifically how would incorporate it into your training?

Thank you all for your encouragement. I am taking a class this Sat. at MN Kali for purely convenience of my schedule, not because I feel one school is better than the other (in fact Greg Nelson's place is few blocks from my work! But they dont have an entry-level class on weekends) Wish me luck as my adventure begins!

Martial Arts Topics / Woof from a FMA noob
« on: September 13, 2008, 11:53:33 AM »
Woof All,

A new guy here getting started in FMA, or stick fighting in general. I've been a long time lurker on this board deciding whether or not it was for me and hope to start utilizing DBMA videos in my training once I pin down one to start with. (I of course would like them all, but money is tight right now.) I come from Minnesota where there at least two good teachers within an hour's drive- Greg Nelson and Rick Faye but I can never seem to work out my schedule to drive to Minneapolis on a consistent basis. (in fact Guro Dan Inosanto is in town today and if I didn't work weekends I would have loved to make that seminar!)

My 37th birthday is next week and my ultimate goal is to attend a Gathering someday before I am 40, so I am taking the "first step" towards this goal by committing to training. My next step will be to make it to a DBMA seminar and/or a private with Guro Crafty within the next year. I have an eye on either joining or starting a training group to stay motivated.

Anyway, I ramble- so I just wanted to say hi and that I look forward to joining the discussions here.
