    The rhythm of the seasons is with us and its time for the "Summer Dog

    Dog Brothers, Dog Brothers Inc. hereby cordially invites all people of good
    spirit to its "Dog Brothers Open Gathering of the Pack" at 11:00 AM on

    Gokor Chivichyan's Hayastan MMA Academy

    7299 Atoll Ave

    North Hollywood, CA 91605

    http://maps.google.com/maps?f=d&sou...200809,-118.419431&spn=0.006904,0.016512&z=17

    This is not far from last year's location so similar hotel arrangements
    should apply



    I am very happy with the fight area-- in my opinion it is the best indoor
    fight area we have ever had. Two sides of the fight area are padded walls,
    one side is a cagefight type fence, and the fourth side is a waist high
    version thereof. Fighters, please note that Gokor takes VERY seriously the
    cleanliness and condition of his fight area. Therefore ONLY wrestling shoes
    (white soled preferred) or bare feet will be required. You will be required
    to remove them before exiting the fight area and put them back on upon
    returning to it, so bringing sandals of some sort along may be a good idea.

    The viewing experience is also the best indoor experience we have ever had.
    There will be bleachers on two sides of the fight area and a balcony over
    looking from a third side. The donation at the door will be $15. Please
    remember that this will be a good opportunity to pick up our DVDs, sticks,
    clothing (including the new "Kali Tudo" MMA shorts and rash guards) and
    other items at special prices.

    The Magic Words:

    The MAGIC WORDS: "No judges, no referees, no trophies. One rule only: Be
    friends at the end of the day. This means our goal is that no one spends the
    night in the hospital. Our goal is that everyone leaves with the IQ with
    which they came. No suing no one for no reason for nothing no how no
    way!Real Contact Stickfighting is Dangerous and only you are responsible for
    you, so protect yourself at all times. All copyright belongs to Dog Brothers
    Inc. CA law applies."

    THIS MATTER OF ACCEPTING ALL RISKS APPLIES TO THOSE OF YOU OBSERVING AS
    WELL!!!

    For example, sticks, and fights for that matter, may go flying into the
    crowd. Parents should consider things like this in deciding whether a child
    is old enough to bring along and/or deciding on from where to observe the
    event. If a stick or a fight comes careening your way know that the fight
    has right of way-- it is on you to get out of the way! If you are sitting in
    or near the front row, we will not make fun of you if you wear protective
    headgear!

    As always, NO VIDEO CAMERAS and NO DUAL PURPOSE CAMERAS WILL BE ALLOWED. In
    God we trust, everyone else NO DUAL PURPOSE CAMERAS. If you see someone
    cheating, please let us know!!! We are very appreciative when people help
    look out for us!

    We will continue starting the knife fights with a handshake and the knives
    undrawn and analogous ideas. Concerning the knife fighting, there is a
    relevant thread at http://dogbrothers.com/phpBB2/index.php?topic=1296.0 We
    will have some "Shocknife" knives on hand and so it looks like we will be
    able to have electric knife vs. electric knife fights (as long as they
    last!). In lieu of the shock knives, aluminum blades are encouraged.
    Perhaps this will help induce more realistic behavior during the knife
    fights!

    We encourage you to fight knife versus stick-- the stick versus electric
    knife is always exciting. Stick vs. knife has been one of perennial
    questions of the FMA, so let's continue the research! Also, please feel free
    to hide a knife on your person and surprise your opponent with it during the
    stickfights. Remember that you may fight with weapons other than a stick if
    you can find someone willing to go against you. Please consider staff,
    double stick, and anything else. In order to more deeply explore certain
    variables, fighters may agree to "no grappling" rules. In staff and other
    heavy weapon fights the fighters may wear wrestling type ear guards under
    the fencing masks.

    As always, there is no charge for fighters but FIGHTERS MUST PRE-REGISTER,
    even if they have fought before-- no handing in registrations at the door!
    WE WILL BE RUTHLESS ON THIS! The Fighter's Registration form can be found on
    the website and MUST be filled out whether you have fought before or not.
    For all Fighter Registration matters, please contact Cindy at
    info@dogbrothers.com 310-540-6853. You are not registered until your name
    appears on the list of registered fighters on the website!!!

    Sorry, but I did not see an edit function so instead of replacing the previous entry with this one, I make a new entry. It is essentially the same thing, but there are a few new details (URL for fighter registration, stuff about parking, etc)

    Concerning parking: The Hayastan Academy's parking lot is relatively small,
    so most of you will be parking on surface streets. On a Sunday morning this
    should present no problem, but please plan your time accordingly.
