Featuring Ajarn Arlan "Salty Dog" Sanford -- assisted by Mike "Dogzilla" Tibbitts
One of the things we say about Dog Brothers Martial Arts is that it is "a system of many styles". Our idea is that while there is no one answer to all questions, we want there to be an coherent inner logic to the different elements in our curriculum-- in short a SYSTEM.
One of the core elements of our system is Krabi Krabong. Muay Thai kickboxing is a ring sport offshoot of the Thai military weaponry system of KK. Based upon sword, double sword, staff, spear, mai sowks and other weapons, KK is aggressive, primal and power crazed-- just the thing for DBMA! But there is more to it than that-- it fits in with the inner logic of DBMA.
Dog Brothers co-founder Arlan "Salty Dog" Sanford has trained extensively in Thailand at the world renowned Buddaiswan Institute and is a certified "Ajarn" (similar to the Filipino term of "Guro") in KK. Ajarn Salty has thoroughly tested his KK skills in literally hundreds of Dog Brothers fights and produced quality fighters with this material which has influenced us all.
