Ok /asp/, I'm entering my first BJJ tournament today and I don't think I've ever been so nervous. Any tips for a first time competitor?
Also post songs that get you pumped up
Stick with what you know and only try submissions you have practiced a lot.
Be a good sport wether you win or lose.

Sorry if this has already been posted, but it only came up on youtube recently


Not sure if legit but there's a guy in the comments saying he's trained with him for 4 years, amazing.
Yeah it's legit, these guys outed him. He's apparently a purple belt under a legit gym, but left and declared himself a black belt and started running his own place.
Seems to have pretty shit technique for a purple belt.

This one>>725446 was custom made though, the client just went "heh I want a longsword, but I do like pappenheim hilt so...". The sword is pretty big though, 5ft long with a 4ft long blade iirc.
But yours is just as good if not better, but the length of the hilt suggest it's more a one-handed sword with a kinda beefy rapier blade. The one I posted is really just a big longsword with a pappenheim guard slapped on it.

I'm not sure what you mean. Here's my current routine. I try to add reps, weight, or sets and improve each time.

ski general?

where should i go in the us or canada to spend the month of january skiing if i want to improve my ability as much as possible? i've only been to mammoth. also somewhere with relatively affordable lift tickets and lodging (like hostels) would be a plus.
Where do you live?
southern california, but i'm willing to drive up to canada if need be.

basically i want to improve my technique as much as possible so that i can eventually handle backcountry and get into ski mountaineering, but would like to avoid massive lift ticket prices if possible. i've heard wasatch range resorts in utah are a decent value.
what i wonder about with the smaller resorts vs mammoth, is whether they have enough diverse terrain and challenging runs for me to learn a lot, or if i'll just exhaust them in a couple of days.
Jackson Hole is where most of the pros work on their fundamentals when they aren't doing spine runs. Corbet's Couloir is the hardest run in the United States so it'd be a nice goal for you to set.

I'm being serious with this question but how do you guys stop getting your balls crushed when finishing armbars? I wear compression shorts and I clamp my legs but I feel that my legs crush my balls?
pull his arm slightly towards his head, that way his elbow will rest on the sides of your crotch instead of on your balls (luckly). i think most people put the submission ahead of their balls tho

/fit/ here
So, on an impulse buy about a month ago, i got a heavy bag to add to my home gym.
I did karate in a semi mcdojo when I was a kid (Started with all the kids in the shitty classes but was allowed into the adult kickboxing classes at age 13 when I started getting stronger) and I know basic striking techniques.

Being very lifting oriented, I like to use a routine for everything I do. The problem is that when you try to look for heavy bag routines, you get the kind of bullshit I have learned to avoid in lifting, like mens health and muscle and fitness.

And so I ask you, asp;
What is a good 20-30 minute heavy bag routine for a very physically fit individual with novice high martial arts skills?

Note: I also plan on going into kickboxing and BJJ in a few months to shake my training up and maybe compete in MMA, so im going for a kickboxing or thaiboxing oriented program.

Pic related, but not my bag

Thanks a lot guys. If any of you are looking to build strength i can recommend programming too

So yeah, it's already been said but heavy bags aren't much good without a good instructor watching you/helping you with form. Besides that:







This guy lost me with two pages on why boxers should stop lifting weights.
>This guy lost me with two pages on why boxers should stop lifting weights.

Body builder splits might not be the most efficient use of time in the weight room, but there's nothing wrong with doing the big three (I prefer OHP over flat bench so I consider OHP, Squat, and Deadlift to be the big three) and cleans + accessory lifts (rows, body weight movements etc.).
I think he means traditional body building. Traditional would be 3 sets of 8 to 12 so really doesn't build immense amount of endurance. Most people think it makes you slow also. Now days a lot of BB use PL methods in their routines.

You build endurance through roadwork and sparring. Your resistance training isn't your endurance training.

The guy with all the articles spouts shit like "Tyson never weight lifted." Okay, but Tyson did 500+ dips and thousands of pushups a day while weighing 220 pounds. His arms and shoulders thought he was lifting weights whether his brain did or not.

If woman were beating Fallon then they wouldn't have a problem. "She" isn't just beating most of them, she is fucking them up. I hate how she tries to use the trans-phobia on why people hate her or disagree with her. Too many people play victim these days and it is really sad when people let actually issues go unnoticed because of this.

How do I get into sky diving?

I read it costs like $1500 to be able to sky dive alone? Is there a cheaper method? I really want to jump solo.
2 replies omitted. Click here to view.
first jump must be tandem, on the second jump you'll be able to jump yourself. they give you a 6-8 hour training session, then jump with you, but not attached to you.
you can pay for your jumps by packing parachuttes or doing misc work around the office. talk to them, they are pretty chill.
no means no.
You can just kill everybody before it's time to jump.
if you want to sky dive you probably will do a good job at packing chuttes.
Get more money.
Or work at the skydiving club.
First jump does NOT have to.be a tandem.

And yes OP, the AFF course (accelerated free fall, the student program) costs around 1500 bucks for the 7 required student jumps. Many dropzones do not require a tandem to start AFF, but its a good idea to do one first to see.how ya like it
