TDA Blitz 2008.10.10

Happy Friday! Crazy week. We've seen the Dow plummet, Kimbo get exposed, and TDA Training come back from the grave! Here's the goings on I thought you'd like to hear about!

  1. Low Tech Combat
    New to the blogroll at TDA, Low Tech Combat. Description: "Ramblings and experiences about Self Protection, RBSD, Combat Sports such as MMA and Conditioning" Thanks to for putting it on his blogroll first! The author has assured me that he thinks that TDA Training is the best martial arts site ever, too, assuring himself the #1 spot in this week's Blitz. Just kidding about that last thing.
  2. Watch this video of dogs greeting an airman coming home after a 14-month deployment via Rachel Lucas. Warms the soul!
  3. Mental Floss on 5 Ways Doctor Who Made a Difference. If, like me, you watched Dr. Who on Channel 20 most Saturday afternoons and were just engrossed in the weirdness and corniness of it, you may appreciate this.
  4. Steve links to Guerrilla Jiu Jitsu: Armlocks with David Camarillo:
  5. Man finds rifle his dad used in Korea
    As gifts go, Jim Richardson's choice for his father's 79th birthday was a long shot.

    Virgil Richardson fondly remembered the .30-caliber M1 Garand rifle he carried during his time as a soldier during the Korean War. He even still had the weapon's serial number. Using that number, Jim Richardson went online and found the firearm at a Kentucky gun broker.

    "I couldn't even talk when he gave it to me," Virgil Richardson told The Flint Journal. "It didn't even have to be the same gun to be important to me."

    Read it!

  6. Phoenix officer hurt in charity boxing match dies
  7. Somaserious (Tales of a Mommy Karateka) has started Wing Chun lessons. Read about it!
  8. Stephen Irwin on 80s Martial Arts Movies. He features a couple of clips from Ninja movies. I'll admit I saw a lot of movies of that genre (that's the TDA vocabulary word of the day!), but never got into the whole ninja thing. How 'bout you?
  9. For some reason, there have been several martial arts bloggers posting about Sarah Palin. I'm not sure I understand the fascination. I mean, sure, she's good looking, wears skirts, has the "naughty librarian/teacher" look I love, and is a crack shot with everything from a shotguns to an M4, but come on! For academic reasons, I have read everything there is to read and about her. Uh, if my wife is reading this, I only like her 'cause of the gun thing!
    Black Belt Mama
    Martial Development
    Dojo Rat
    Among others...
  10. Finally, Fight Geek posts a video on how to Prep for an Escrima Fight.

Have a great weekend, and train hard!

Doctor Who and martial arts?

You're a man after my own heart, Nathan.
