Welcome to dogbrothers.gr - the site for information about the Dog Brothers, and Dog Brothers training in Greece.
The Dog Brothers are a group of martial artists that have gained notoriety for their stick fighting. In a combative sport where the norm was (and still is) padded suits, thin sticks, and point competition, the Dog Brothers do things differently:
- thick rattan sticks, staff, nunchaku, bokken, etc...
- for protection - an ordinary fencing-mask and lightly-padded gloves
- kicking, punching, elbow/knees strikes, grappling - all permitted
- full-power knockouts - permitted
Three times a year in North America and twice a year in Europe, the Dog Brothers come together at an event known as "The Gathering". There, they test one another in fights that are "as real as it gets". No trophies, no winners no losers - just fighting!
Starting off from Southern California in the late 80's, the Dog Brothers tribe now has active members in Canada, Mexico, England, France, Germany, Italy, Bulgaria, Norway, Poland, Russia, Scotland, Spain, Switzerland, and the United States.
Since 2009, there has also been a Dog Brothers training group in Greece.
