Looking for a single, or a single and knife or a double stick- prefer a no-grappling fight this time around.

Hi Gibby,

How does a single stick sound?

Thanks,
Paul

Dr. Dog, I have about a 6 foot rattan staff. Should be arriving in LA today. I read you had a 54 inch staff. Do you have anything bigger? Woof!

I may have a six footer I can bring.  Please shoot me an email the night before to remind me.

Woof Carlos - I have Pappy Dog bringing a couple for me, and then shipping them to me afterwards. Traveling with these is a pain. I prefer the shorter staff, will be fine to use short vs long staff if you are amenable.  Guro Crafty - thanks for bringing those.  Looking forward to it!

Dr. Dog, I am open to doing short vs long staff. Both have their advantages and disadvantage vs each other. Should be interesting. Woof!

Paul and Jeff- Hit me up, I will be the tall dorky guy wearing the kilt.  My rule is I will fight anybody with anything but I really want to try some no grappling stuff.  Distancing, entering, angles and trying to apply some of the Kara-Ho Kempo principles is my goal.

The knife fights often end up in a clinch with each person killing each other about 5 times, then I get taken down and choked out. LOL  Same with stick- a couple swings a rush/clinch then hitting each other in the shins while doing a bro-hug.

All of it is fun, and growth is everywhere.

NOTE: If you fight Mongolian Dog, do not, under any circumstances, remove your mask to increase visibility.  My favorite t-shirt still has blood stains all over it.

Gibby, sounds great... I'm in!  :-D

Crafty, I can pitch in drumming when people aren't hitting me...

Tail wags for the kind words.

I am on the road at the moment, but will have more to say when I return.
