Last weekend two of our Kali instructors, Tyler Morin and Dave Bandianon, travelled to the Gelinas Academy of Martial Arts for the annual Montreal Dog Brothers Gathering. The Gathering is a full contact stick fighting event, where participants are able to test their skills across a variety of martial arts disciplines. This was Dave’s first Gathering, and it earned him the recognition of the group by making ‘Dog’. Earning the title of Dog, is the first of three steps to becoming a full Dog Brother. This designation takes into account, not only your performance at a Gathering, but your character as well. Dave’s commitment to his training in the Filipino Martial Arts definitely paid off, and he represented Kombat well in Montreal this weekend. Good job Dave!
