DBMA

Dog Brothers Martial Arts was established by Punong Guro “Crafty Dog” in 1995. The influence of various martial arts (FMA, Krabi Krabong, BJJ, Wrestling) and the experience of countless RCSF fights, led to originate this system of many styles. Why a system of many styles? Because fighting resembles the children’s game of ‘rock, paper, scissors’. In our opinion it is difficult to cover every situation with a single style. By style we do not mean a specific martial art style, because even within a system different fighters will interpret a style for themselves in a unique way.

The DBMA Curriculum has three areas:

1) Real Contact Stick Fighting which includes:
– Single Stick
– Double Stick
– Staff

2) Kali Tudo (Empty Hand) which includes:
– Striking / Kicking
– Clinching / Wrestling
– Grappling / BJJ

3) DLO (Die Less Often) which includes:
– Self-Defense
– Defense against weapons
– Short Impact Weapons / Knife

A belief that stands behind the Curriculum of DBMA is that there is not one style that works as the ideal solution for all situations and problems that can occur in a fight. If a fighter is presented with a problematic situation by an opponent they must come up with a solution in order not to be beaten. In this way, during the fight a unique and dynamic exchange exists between the fighters and their corresponding styles. With the Dog Brothers, there has always been an active exchange of concepts through representatives of very different fighting styles and systems meeting in order to fight against each other. In this way the Dog Brother Martial Arts developed as a “system of many styles”. The Curriculum is continuously further developed, refined, and adjusted.
