woof,
this is an interesting question. the plasti dip sounds like a good idea. i hope i can find it in germany.
when i did a siminar with guru lonley, i noticed that he had ( what looked 2 me like) a soft tape on his sticks. any ideas what that might b? i tried double sided tape. the kind used 4 hanging mirros, but it isnt very durable and i ended up with a WICKED blister. granted, i was swining a pick ax handle @ the time. any ideas that went stated here? guru benjamin, any comments?

i am interested in going 2 thailand as well.did anyone ever find out if this camp is still open? i have looked around the web and found plenty of MT, but only some passing reference 2 K.K.
i mentioned the idea 2 a friend and he brought up vaccinations and disease doom and gloom.
i am curious if anyone can tell me anything? any of u guys gone? guru salty, any comments?( does he post?)?

Martial Arts Topics / lonely dog seminar!
« on: March 16, 2006, 01:34:20 PM »
almost 4got the best story.
a guy asked a question about countering the "camel toe" and while lonely was clearing it up 4 the class the guy tries 2 roll with him! icouldnt believe this guy. talk about cajones( or stupidity, still not sure) i guess he wanted 2 test himself. well, long story short...he ended up on the receiving end of a fang choke.  priceless! i wish i had video. the look on his face was 2 funny. :shock:  live and learn!

Martial Arts Topics / lonely dog seminar!
« on: March 12, 2006, 03:03:27 PM »
wow what a day! just got home from lonely's seminar in hannover, germany! that was fan-friggin-tastic! he taught (of course) in german and from time 2 time i would miss a detail or 2, but he cleared it up 4 me right away. i learned allot 2day.
i was a little annoyed with my training partner. felt he was more worried about impressing lonley than getting a good grasp on what was being taught, b4 he went all out, but that wasnt so bad.
a great day all around and i am looking forward 2 working with him again.
i really hope that i can get it 2gether and catch guru crafty when he comes 2 europe!
if anyone is considering a seminar or P.t. w/ one of the dogs, dont hesitate! make it happen! it is more than worth it!
 :P

thanx guys. i really appreciate the support. the up side is i could c allot of the mistakes i was making nano seconds B4 the guy pounced.  i am sure it will come 2gether @ some point. i am waiting for instruction on the basics. guard, passing etc.
i looked @ stickgrapplers sight( wow! what an incredible source of info!), for some tips and drills 2 work on @ home, but i am not familiar enough with many of the terms.  though i am sure it will B a big help later.
for exymple, what the H!$$ is shrimping? i cant imagine forest gump has anything 2 do with BJJ!! :lol:
burned my arm @ work so i had 2 sit out last week, but i am back tomorrow. i will keep u posted.
thanx again!!

hope i am not misunderstood here. i didnt post this just 2 whine. the class was an eye opener 4 me. how difficcult the ground game is, my lack of skill with it and the type of conditioning requiered is different.
i didnt get much instruction on how 2 counter what he was doing. in retrospect i wonder if i was experiencing something similar 2 top or island dogs post( cant remember now which); in the "sparring progression" post. i.e. throw a newbie in the ring and see what he can do.
 
i will attend the lonely dog seminar in hannover, germany next month and  i am really looking forward 2 it!

woof, tpotts

Martial Arts Topics / Kenpo Karate?
« on: February 16, 2006, 07:44:05 AM »
i studied kajukenpo under sling patterson for 2 years in tx. as i understand it(correct me if im wrong),  it is one of the early "Blending" styles. i enjoyed it @ the time, but it is a "hard" style and the focus is on power. long strong stances, traditional japanese punching. board breaking("boards dont hit back") :D
 i had studied a traditional karate style as a kid, so it was a good transition. i remember allot of self defense patterns (i.e. when this happens do this).   i dont want 2 start a  one style is better than the other debate, but i have found some of the other styles i studied more practical.( shaolin k.f., f.m.a., jkd).
i wanna make 2 points b4 i end my 2cents. (1) i studied kajukenpo 15 years ago and i dont know how much the style has evolved since then.
(2) i did have 2 use it (kjkpo) on the street a couple of times and i t saved my a"%!
i think the question that u have 2 ask yourself is, what r u looking 4 N a martial art? what do u want 2 get out of it?

Martial Arts Topics / clear something up
« on: January 24, 2006, 01:22:43 AM »
woof all,
the thread from "the vampire hunter"( i would love 2 hear that story), brought up a couple of questions 4 me as well.
the first is in regard 2 choosing sticks.
in the footwork dvd, G-top dog made a comment that one of the fighters "has an advantage with his longer, heavier sticks." how does one choose the right stick? is that personal taste? i have a pair that R fairly long and a pair that i cut a bit shorter ( i kept getting tangled up during siniwali). i have a better feel with the shorter pair. i feel  like i can generate more power. R heavier sticks allowed @ the gatherings? or only rattan? (safety issues?)

second question is about grappling.
@ the moment  that is my weakspot. what can i do alone? i will start a bjj class soon, but i want speed up the learning curve!!!!!  it seems that many of the DB fighters i have seen, love 2 take things 2 the ground as quickly as they can. am i wrong there?
thanx,
tpotts

i just hope the people responsible 4 the lose of life can live with the choices they made.

thanx guru. i will do that firsst thing N the morning!
just a quick note. i got the foot work dvd the other day and i couldnt B happier! the question i have is about format.  do the dvds come in pal format as well. i can play it but, there is no color. i dont think i am missing much but, it makes following some of the fights difficult.
any news on the first series dvds?
