          Cool, hope to see you there. I'm coming in tuesday like I said, don't know what time though, probably around mid-day, if you'll be there.

            I plan to go down to SBG when time clears up. Unfortunatly ETA is next summer...

            Eitherway, theres no way I'm going to miss training there, a year from now or even 5, I want to be there. I really want to train "aliveness" and hopefully bring it to other people in Kajukenbo.

                "Training = pain." - I said that.

                  I really feel a connection with the SBG. They seem to have great training and a great philosophy for the evolution of a fighting system.
                  I would jump at the chance to train with them or at least train in the arts they seem to recommend. (ie Boxing, Savate, MT, Judo, Greco, BJJ, stick,knife)

                  I attended a seminar recently:

                      I think SBG rocks. I did a Matt Thornton Seminar in Feb in Berkeley CA and it was the most fun I've ever had doing MA (The matburns have almost healed).

                      At risk of sounding like I'm sucking up to the sensei/guru/sifu, I gotta say that I feel like Matt's approach cuts to the heart of Martial Arts in regards to both philosophy and application.

                      He is hella opinionated, but also very open to continuing evolution - the developement of the Crazy Monkey techniques, for example. Plus, he's funny, trains hard, surfs, and has bitchin' taste in music (see the SBGI DVDs).

                      I really dig the SBGI paradigm (I train at an affiliated gym in Berkeley - moderncombatives.com). It is super effective and really freaking fun.

                        PS I've also trained (once) with Tom Oberhue of the Beaverton gym, and once with Karl Tanswell, SBGI honcho from England. Both are hard working badasses - and very entertaining to boot.

                          Yeah, Tom Oberhue is the fucking man. Though, I went today to do Kali and I found out the class was closed - but there was another guy there for open gym so we rolled for about an hour and still got a bit out of it. I'd have been mad enough to start breaking some legs if I drove half an hour for nothing. >:(

                            I'm going to be moving back to oregon in a year or so, and I have been looking for good places to train. unfortunatly I'm moving to eugene not portland...I hate portland, but there is very few REAL MA training in eugene. I was thinking about maybe even checking out the Team Quest gym in gresham when I get down there.

                              Check our Ryan Kelly's JKD school if you're going to be in eugene. I've heard good things about it.

                                I was checking out the hard knox boxing gym, but I can't find anything on the internet for ground work. IT PISSES ME OFF! but thanks for letting me know I will have to check that out. in fact I'm going to write that down, that is the name of the gym "Ryan Kelly's JKD" right?
