Okay, I've been absent from this blog for too long!
In the time that I have been absent, obviously a lot has happened.
In March 2015 I flew over to Bern in Switzerland to take part in the European Gathering of the Pack.
This was awesome! Had a great time, and some great fights, making new friends and learning new lessons. I must have done okay because the tribe accepted me as Dog Ste!
In February 2016 I brought Benjamin Rittiner over to St. Helens for a stick day and seminar. Again, this was amazing!! The stick day was a great day of sparring and workshops, with all the DBMA Northwest UK guys and Combative Edge Academy members giving a great showing of skill and heart. The Sunday was an incredible seminar by Guro Benjamin, covering topics such as defensive footwork and attacking.
I was also fortunate enough to receive a promotion to Red Tags :-)
Most recently I went over to Hannover in Germany for the first European Gathering of 2016. This time it was a two day affair where I got to fight with some excellent warriors and have a great time. Again I must have done something right because I am now C-Hobbit Dog!!
