Looking to start Judo pretty soon, but I have a major concern - not worried about bodily injuries as I know that sort of thing is expected in full contact martial arts. But how common are head/brain injuries, even if they are light? I’m talking concussions or any significant bumps to the head.
Anyone have any experience of this, or know how common head injuries are in Judo?

Skydiving is the lamest "sport" ever conceived. There is no competitive aspect unlike basically every other sport. It's literally just drop from a plane and them pull the parachute. Obviously, there is some preparation that needs to go on but you don't have to be a peak athlete to skydive (and there's no competition so no reason to improve once you know the fundamentals.) And it lasts for literally about 10 seconds or less then it's over. The disciplines that are actually designed for competition like accuracy have almost no entrants and/or viewers even by extreme sports standards because it's a shitty spectator sport anyways. The only benchmark that exists is "muh records."

Also, BASE is a blood sport lmao. But skydiving seems easy once you are competent at it. Unless I'm missing something since I started finding out about it literally yesterday.
>>
>>191718
Skydiver here. Very few people in the sport 'compete.

Formation skydiving, be it belly or vertical, is pretty competitive but repetitive. Freestyle is nice to watch once, but then its boring. Wingsuit comps are even more boring.

Swooping comps are exciting, but it's like racing, most people are watching for the crashes.

For the average skydiver, you want 50-60 seconds of adrenaline in free fall, mostly tracking or having fun, and then possibly another 6-10 seconds of adrenaline if you choose to swoop.
>>
>>191779
I'm going to do it for first time. My ultimate goal is wingsuit flying. How difficult is it to do wingsuit and is it thrilling ?
>>
>>193018
Not very hard, you will need a minimum of 200 jumps to get into wingsuit flying, and generally a lot of dropzones have a dedicated wingsuit group that is pretty tight. What part of the US are you in? I can direct you to the best dropzone
>>
>>191718
>no reason to improve once you know the fundamentals
The only people who think this way are A license freshlings who think all the other freshlings are fucking up the dive flow and jump straight into freeflying because it makes them feel more advanced than they actually are. Being a good belly jumper takes hundreds of jumps.

>BASE is a blood sport lmao
Only if you're an idiot. The point of BASE jumping isn't to enjoy 3 seconds of free fall and avoid hitting any rocks on the way down to landing. People like being out in nature and exploring. Scouting out a landing area and poking around cliffs for hazards is part of the complete experience. If your idea of getting into BASE jumping is to go from being a couch potato to jumping off rocks you're in for a bad time. The people who really enjoy BASE jumping are the ones that would have enjoyed being out there even if they weren't BASE jumping. The jump is one part of the experience.

Parkour thread.

Where are you at with your training? How have you been working around the limits of weather and lockdowns? How much do you apply the utilitarian Hébertist mindset of being strong to be useful to your training routines?

Freerunners can post, too. Maybe even gymnasts and trickers if you don't get your own thread up and running.

FAQ on buying a bike that nobody reads anyway:
> What good bike can I get for under $500?
a stolen bike. Possibly a newer used entry level hardtail but don't expect it to survive rock gardens, jumps, or drops. Or an older mtb which won't be as good as newer ones and will still have a front derailleur, but it'll be good enough.
> What good bike can I get for under $1000
Good used hardtail, new entry level hardtail
> What good bike can I get for under $2000?
New Hardtail, decent used full suspension
> What good bike can I get for under $3000?
https://www.yt-industries.com/fr/produits/velos/capra/uncaged-10-al/602/capra-mx-uncaged-10/
Used full suspension, decent entry level full suspension but prepared to put more money into it.
> What are the excellent value brands?
Marin, Commencal, Canyon, Polygon, YT, Propain, Kona, and many more. Sometimes the expensive brands have an excellent alue bike
>> What are the differences between an XC, Trail, Enduro, and Downhill bikes?

ok thanks guys I have specific gear I use for hiking that will translate in terms of shirts and hydration pack, but zippered shorts gloves and basic set of shoes sounds like good ideas
>>
>>194943
And knee pads. Dunno where/how you ride but they are a necessity. Elbows is just an extra. If you fall and break your elbow/arm, you can leave your bike and walk down the trail and it'll be alright. If you break your knee, you're fucked. You can only hope someone is riding down the mountain.
Also don't forget a small card with your information, medical issues, contacts etc incase you get knocked out and someone finds you. I have a card laminated with information paramedics will need(drug allergy and some other important stuff)
>>
>>194920
Level of protection depends on what kind of ride you are doing. XC/long distance riding on gravel paths/forest paths I'd just wear a half shell helmet, trail riding add knee pads and then anything else probably a full face and other optional protection e.g. elbow, chest. As for other clothing I think the main necessary thing is probably specific shorts/pants, any other clothing just doesnt really matter and hiking clothing will work fine. I used to use an old pair of vans as riding shoes on flats and they were plenty grippy enough however did get hot otherwise you can probably just use trainers or get some proper cycling shoes.
I don't know if anyone else has the same issue as me, but I find cycling gloves to disintergrate very quickly and I always am ending up sewing seams which is annoying. I've had decathlon, enduras (complete shit), 100% and leatt in the past 8 years with the decathlon gloves surviving the longest but I ended up losing one. Also gloves without any plasticy kind of stickers on the palm are by far the best.

pro tip these specialized shoes have the grippiest soles you can get at 1/4 the price of any other decent mtb shoe. Clip version is good too. The sizing is fucked so try them out at a dealer which, fortunately, there are a lot of.
Like other anons said, if you already have a pair of vans those will work just fine, they just don't have the level of protection you want for going fast into rocks

Required gear Helmet

Optional gear but recommended, gloves, and shoes, making sure that your shorts have zippers

Believe or not the guy doing the throw ended up more injured. The guy who got dropped had the wind knocked out of him but the guy doing the throw was concussed by the pommel strikes to the head.

>>190102
Why would you lie? Those pummel strikes had no structure behind them and even then were hitting the mask.
>>
>>190096
It was never as clean as it is now though, most modern joint lock submissions are from late 1800s and on. In wrestling it was mainly just trying to pull something until it breaks, there was no technique to submissions. Even the toe hold which was probably one of the more common 1800s wrestling submissions was just pulling the foot in one direction when the opponent was turtled up. The armbar as we know it was only introduced to America around 1905 or something like that. So while submissions were around for thousands of years, they really weren't around to be used on battlefields, especially in Europe where there was superior weaponry and armor, they would mainly use a takedown to use their weapon to kill someone on the ground if they were armored, if they were unarmored then it doesn't even get to a grapple.

Git gud. If you’re getting hit with sacrifice throws a lot your posture is probably bad. Stand the fuck up. Bending over is over bjj nerds.

>>194940
No, it's just people who tend to do it over compensate the foot placement and just buckle that shit into my inner pelvis and dick. Actually having straighter posture makes it worse.

Was training muay thai in class with my friend. Got my kick caught and he pulled. When I was hopping in my grounded foot, I landed funny, felt something in my knee like a pop and collapsed. No swelling at all, feels weird and tingly. Hurts when I attempt to walk on it. Doctor claims only meniscus tear but nurse told me the doctor half asses his job. Going to try to schedule an MRI.

He was absolutely bottom of the rung dirt poor in Brazil (as a child he ate out of the trough like an animal at times).

He turned out to be pretty good at BJJ except he had some sort of mental problem where he wouldn't let go of locks and would just cripple people. Which - you can't have in professional sports. Also he was never the best of the best so he got booted out till he was fighting in bottom rung promotions and then fell off badly

Can he? Yes. He's stronger than last time and big guys like Levan don't have the gas for long fights.
Will he? Not likely. He's the underdog for a reason.

Devon doesn't have the side pressure or internal rotation of Ermes and I don't see him beating Levans wrist .if Levan pulls with his Side pressure and pronation primarily maybe Devon can swindle him but if he brings the match to his side of the table and works efficiently yeah it's going to be a short night for the Canadian.
