I leave in the 8 hours for a two week trip (NY and Switzerland) and return on the 19th.  I will be here intermittently during that time.

I'm back from a fine time in Bloomington.

I have a feeling of being able to settle in for a while after several months of seminars, government work, the DB Gathering, another matter that took great amounts of time at a fairly heavy emotional cost, etc etc.

I am really looking forward to getting my groove on!

PS:  Folks, now that starting today my wife will be visiting my mother for a week and so during that time all will be glorious chaos here :lol:

Fire Hydrant:
« Reply #65 on: October 26, 2010, 03:49:07 AM »
We were in Huddersfield in Yorkshire for the opening of a friends MMA gym, Rebecca Kane is the first woman (to on her own) in the UK to open up an FMA/MMA gym.  She had Wanderlei Silva (who's in the UK on a seminar tour) to open the gym and give a little talk.  Becky is a friend of the UK Clans and asked if we could do some demo fights, Guro Lonely heard about this and took the opportunity to come over from Switzerland for the chance to meet Wanderlei.

So, Guro Lonely, myself, Scotty Dog and C-Psycho Bitch did a few 'demonstration bouts' with Wandelei in attendance.  According to Mr Silva "Stickfighting is cool!" and he left with a gift from Guro L of a DBMA dvd!  ;D

On behalf of Point Dog, here is a photo from that event. 

Congratulations and good luck to Rebecca Cane on the opening of her new gym; Congrats also to Guro Lonely, Point Dog, Scotty Dog and C-Psycho Bitch for their work on behalf of DBMA; and many thanks to Wanderlei Silva (whom I've not met) for being there.

Had a chance to visit a bit with Grand Tuhon Gaje this afternoon at his seminar in Long Beach.  Very nice to see him (and pick up a few pointers!) and introduce my son to him.

THE FIRE HYDRANT - new feature on DBMA Training Groups
« Reply #91 on: January 03, 2012, 10:02:52 AM »
Hi All.

This is mostly for those of you who are DBMA Group Leaders.  I've posted a similar message on the member's Forum, but its important that it be on the Public Forum as well, so all can view it.

Before I say anything else, let me state that I've checked with Guro Crafty and Guro Lonely regarding the idea I am about to present here, and they agree its worth trying out.

As some of you know, the site I have developed (dogbrothers.gr) is now at a satisfactory stage. Its primary purpose is to provide info on the Dog Brothers and DBMA to Greek-speakers, but its also in English.

Now then...whenever I attend a Gathering in Switzerland, I am amazed at the number of small DBMA training groups, who are relatively unknown in the 'States, but work hard and  IMHO are worth getting to know.

So what I propose, is every few weeks, on the dogbrothers.gr site, I add an article with photos on

  • a DBMA training group
  or
  • a tribe member who may be training with a few friends/students

I propose starting with three such write-ups (at once), and then an additional one every three to six weeks.

I would also like to feature groups in the US, and elsewhere (to introduce the to European audiences), but at the beginning, there will be a focus on those about whom there is relatively little information.

The idea is to

  • help the various US and European groups get to know one another a bit better
  • give relatively unknown groups exposure in their own country

The last point, is done in the following way:  I developed the dogbrothers.gr site so someone with a non-English browser, will see the Google translate bar at the top - allowing them to translate the English into their own language with one click.  In this way, an article on a group in France or Slovenia, can be understood by people there.

I hope it will prove to be interesting and beneficial to all.

 :-) :-) :-)

I love this idea, Kostas.  As the Pack and Tribe grow, I think that continuing a sense a community is imperative for their continued strength and growth.  Good work!

Thank-you.  Yes, I was struck by some of the lesser known tribe members I came across - how they fought so well, with few training partners to help them prepare  There are also such people and groups in North America (the NoHo and Hawaiian clans come to mind) - known to those who attend the US Gatherings, but barely "visible" to those of us abroad. There is also a group down in Argentina, who has been training faithfully for quite some time now.

There are other "stories" here as well - the German groups (of which there are several) have for some time now, gotten together every few months to train and test one another.  In the UK, such a "multi-clan fight day" has been happening too (Point Dog has been involved in this).

So there have been various events/stories that may require a bit of chasing down, but I think its worth looking into  :-)

indeed i like the idea a lot

it would be also interesting what kind of philosophy and/or principle (maxim/motto/ central theme) the different Training Groups have.
