Five years before Rorion Gracie opened the world's eyes to the concept of learning fighting effectiveness by competing with no rules, Marc "Crafty Dog" Denny and Eric "Top Dog" Knaus did the same thing, but with weapons.

“No judges, no referees, no trophies. One rule only Be friends at the end of the day. This means no one should spend the night in the hospital, and everyone should leave with the IQ that they came with.”

In 1995 the Dog Brothers offered to bring their approach of "Higher Consciousness Through Harder Contact" to the UFC, but were rebuffed for being "too extreme." This was the pre regulation, hair-pulling and groin punching UFC too.

 The Dog Brothers are still at, and hold period open gatherings, where anything goes, with weapons, like this one in September, held at Gokor Chivichyan's Hayastan Academy in North Hollywood, CA.

Been to a few of these back when I was training Kali, my coach and a few class mates participated... Heavy shit. Seen some nasty gashes, sweet chokes with the sticks and some crazy takedowns!

Whats with the knifes?

They are obviously dull or blunt at the edge so it's just a... Poking device? Why not just use one of the big sticks and jab the guy from afar? Phone Post

That's pretty cool... We trained with sharpies just to see where you got touched... Knife fight no good , stand 2/3 chance of getting stuck... Only three options, you stab him, he stabs you or you both get stabbed.... I say Run! Phone Post

A lot of Martial Arts that teach self defense against knives tell you to run as the first option, but if you are cornered these guys will teach you to not be afraid to get cut really bad in order to disable (kill) your attacker, and then seek medical attention.

Also a lot of those guys will teach you the importance of carrying concealed firearms to protect yourself. As you will learn in class that it's extremely hard to stop somebody from stabbing you in vital organs.

I'm not convinced, real swords used correctly take arms and legs off. I dont see how they are simulating damage accurately, I didn't see them stopping the action for what would be kill shots in real combat.

Also I'm very content to shoot a attacker in real combat, fuck taking huge risks with your life like pulling a knife.
