Hello Guro Marc Denny and The DogBrother Tribe,

It was a pleasurable, exciting, and a great learning experience participating in my first DB gathering.  I would just like to thank you and the rest of your organization for allowing me to participate in such a unique event.   To all the fighters that participated I honor your courage and determination engaging in such an exciting event.   It was a very humbling experience to honestly fight with those gentlemen.  I apologize for any injuries (if any) I had sustained.  I for one had some hickies on my abs and shoulders.  It was also a great honor  meeting  Mr. Guro Marc Denny and the great TopDog Erik Knauss!   I admire the females who particpiated in such an event, I admire your courage and skills.

Peace.

Woof All:

Reposting Sicilain's post from nearby here so that we have only one thread of post Gathering commentary.

====================

Woof!

My deepest thanks to the Dog Brothers for a very successful gathering this Sunday. I'll definitely be back for the next one.

Thanks to those I fought:

Chris (knife-fight), Glenn (stick-fight) and the big guy wearing the Gracie Barra shirt (stick-fight)

It was also a great honor meeting Marc "Crafty Dog" Denny and Eric "Top Dog" Knaus.

Special thanks to Marc Scott for training me for this fight.

Also to my FMA trainers:

Sixto Carlos, Alvin Aguilar,Rom Macapagal Jr. and Ray Floro.

Woof Guro Marc Denny,

Yes, that is correct.  I fought the gentleman from Italy in the last round of the day. I aoplogize for not remembering his name and the two gentlemen that fought earlier (one with Muay Thai shirt and another whom I paired with knife fighting) I thought they fought very well!  I also fought Mike C-war dog with double sticks, whom I felt is  a very strong fighter and I thank him and the rest of the fine gentlemen for the humbling and positive growth experience.

Peace.

Glenn

This was my third Gathering.  I enjoy each Gathering more than the last.

One thing that made a huge difference was I set a goal of seven fights.  I only got four fights, but I had tons of energy and stayed focused through all four.  In the past, I mentally prepared for only three fights and found that between the second and third fight I was thinking stray thoughts about a shower, dinner, ... just not get hit anymore.

It is odd and interesting how comfortable this strange Gathering of fighters are with each other even though most only see eachother twice a year.

I don't hold any rank in JKD or Doce Pares; I have no interest in it and refuse to test, but being promoted to Dog means a lot to me.  I must be getting soft in my old age.

Dog Corey,

Congratulations on a recognition well deserved!

You represent the true spirit of the organization in willing to test yourself to the greatest degree.

Seeing you fight last November was quite impressive!

Hello brother Toby,

Thanks for the growth experience with you!  I will always cherish those moments for a lifetime.  You are an awesome warrior and I wish you all the best of luck on your martial training and all endeavors in your life.  I hope you far exceed your own expectations and be the best of all you can be!   Hope to honorably meet up with you again.  

There are so many beautiful places in the Philippines, do you mind if I ask which part of the islands you go and which areas would you like to visit?

Peace bro,

Glenn

Yo Glenn!

Tourism in the Philippines is cheap for you guys earning dollars!!! Try out Boracay Island and Palawan. I have a friend who owns Coron Island in Palawan. We got the best tropical beaches in the world at ridiculously low prices.

Good luck to all your future endeavors brother! See you at the next gathering!

Woof Guro Marc,

Thnaks for the cool thought.  It was just my own expression toward my personal liberation...I honestly thought I could of done alot better and I seem to feel the adaptation toward the last round.  There were those little things that always pop the day after.  I'll definitely be more refined for the next gathering.

Peace.

Glenn

Hey Corey,

Congratulations to you on your promotion!  I wish you all the best of luck
on your endless journey.   Great shots of you fighting ( I don't think I would want to be beneath you!)  :shock:  I'm sorry that we were not able to pair up at the last rounds...I had helped out a gentleman with a cut ( maybe a raincheck?)

Peace,

Glenn
