    I was very surprised to see this on the cnn front page today. Its not an awful article, really just scratching the surface of stick fighting, but it doesn't make them seem overly crazy.

    The comments at the bottom of course, end up being infuriating

    It's a pretty decent article. The comments of even the least contoversial articles are populated by people who strive to misunderstand. There is always some douche that will somehow bring up "death matches/fight club" after an article like this. The article fairly presented the purpoes and intent of the Dog Bros. I was pleasantly surprised.

    My motto has always been if someone pulls a knife, pull out a bigger knife, or one of these:

    Yeah, but the solid trainers (or previously, shockknives) give the feedback about that, not a judge stopping and resetting, so I think there's a level of realism not found in Cold Steel Challenge type venues, where a tag to the arm magically stops the action.

    Yeah, that's about the only way I would engage a knife fight. That is, if I had the option not to engage.

    Holy **** that sound awesome. Do you have a link to said chain-fight?
    The fool thinks himself immortal,
    If he hold back from battle;
    But old age will grant him no truce,
    Even if spears spare him.

    I'm actually friends with one of the chain-fighters on FB. We fought later that day with sticks, and had fought a year prior as well. There's no video though, because the Dog Brothers folks don't allow any video recording (official photographers/videographers excepted). Anyway, my favorite part of the chain-fight was that one guy was on the ground on his back with the other guy standing, and he grabbed the other guy's chain and pulled him in, and pressed a foot against his hip to break his posture, and proceeded to land many unanswered strikes to the head while the other guy was struggling to get away with his weapon. They also exchanged back and forth while standing for a bit.

    Afterwards, he showed me the welts from the chain. It was a decent sized chain, but the welts were actually less severe looking than the ones from a stick. The chain loses its umph when it conforms to the shape its hitting, and it seems like there's a lot of noise and such without much damage. So, if someone pulls a chain on you, don't worry- its not that damaging and the user probably doesn't know that.

    I was super excited to see these. Many of my Ohana were there (Dean Webster, Sleddog--Philip Gelinas) so I was glad to see this group get some good press.

    Wish I had the time to go.
