>Is it true Amerimutts have no wrestling for adults and it's all in high school or collegiate
Pretty muxh, but the Only exception is if your mma (or just bjj) gym has someone on staff who wrestled in high school and college and specifically offers wrestling classes. Out of the 10 gyms in my city, only one offers actual wrestling classes
mother Fuckers!
I had this book marked and now they took down all there videos.
why? because the want to do a subscription.
fucking subscription every!
I was wondering what happened to the videos. I tried to show somebody one as a reference the other day and was disappointed to find the videos were down.
That was the same for me

Suppose a real MMA World Cup existed, which country would be most likely to win it?

Something like 4 fighters from 5 weight classes, so 20 fighters in general per country

I want this so that training mma could be more mainstream
I hear good things out of Japanese mma but I don't follow it closely.
Australia could get bronze.
Brazilians aren't relevant in a post steroid sport
In a vacuum Jap mma has it's merits. Introduce the rest of the world and it's not even Korea tier.

>Where do I start?
People typically start in the gym and branch off outdoors and find their niche, be it bouldering, trad, sport or a mixture of the above. Some never leave the gym at all. Ultimately it doesn't matter - just get started and enjoy yourself.

>How fit do I have to be to start? Do I have to be able to do x amount of pull-ups?
Being light, strong and flexible helps at the higher levels but climbing is open to almost anyone and is fairly intuitive to most. Even if your body is feeble and weak now, you will develop strength over time by virtue of just climbing. Climbing is a holistic sport and success often hinges upon many factors, not just strength and power, but having these qualities definitely helps when you breach into the higher grades.

>What shoes do I buy?
If you're starting out in the gym, don't worry too much: get some snug shoes without dead space that don't cause you lasting pain. Some people (such as the famed shoe designer Heinz Mariacher) recommend wearing soft shoes when you're starting out -- this makes sense since your footwork will probably suck and the increased feedback will pay dividends over time. You really don't need fancy expensive shoes when you're starting out, but certain shoe properties help send harder problems (e.g. stiff shoes for standing on tiny granite edges or soft shoes for sandstone/gritstone smears).

Here are some useful resources for sizing:

I don't know what problem you're trying to solve or how using one regional grading system over the others is meant to solve it.
I'm not sure what is going to happen when my 20mm max hang catches up with my pull down strength but it will surely be something positive
I dearly hope I wont get injured
I don't think I will, it's 20mm max hang for a reason, not 10mm max hang
I do max hangs on 15mm and I'm fine

for 5 years i’ve tried to learn the ollie, this summer…this summer will be the one i know it
13 replies and 1 image omitted. Click here to view.
I got my pop down, now it looks my next thing I need to get better at is leveling. I slide my foot up the board then just fall right back down on the board. I recorded myself and saw the frame by frame, back foot is fine it’s just the front foot that’s not pushing it forward. I’m practicing stationary on a doormat, does the board level out easier when you’re moving?
Your beyond retarded
The foot sliding up the board more goes straight up and across slightly to keep contact. When this occurs you need to lift your back foot up so the tail has room to come up. The combination of these two actions work as a lever to balance out the board.
Off the board, it is like hopping off your back and then lifting it to level your feet mid air.
Ollies are easier stationary but I would recommend learning all tricks slightly rolling (unless this is your only way tompractice then go for it, better than nothing). Its almost like relearning the trick going from stationary to moving.
Side note: I think learning a bunch of tricks stationary helped learn doing them fakie. My fakie flips are so much more consistent then kickflips.
Also try keep your balance over your board and square. A bit more front foot orientated. Too often I see guys try Ollie's while being way too far back, commit to one and slip out and earn their first hipper.

Also doing cavemans (cavemen?) and bonlessy shit is worth it. Gets you used to landing without eating shit.
What fucks them up is they don't realise they have to jump lol. They learn the tail pop and front foot pull but never actually leave the ground

I know regular Wing Chun isn't at all useful in a real fight, but what about this form of it? Anyone heard of this thing?
9 replies omitted. Click here to view.
What about Kenpo?
Again, Sanda it's the only chinese martial art worth learning
You’re retarded. Grappling in general is about using your strength in the most efficient way possible. I’m going to paraphrase from kodokan judo, but Jigoro Kano explains it something like this:

If you have a strength of 5, and your opponent has a strength of 7, then in a head on confrontation you will lose everytime. However, by maintaining your balance and moving the opponent into a place of instability, his strength becomes 3 and you can overcome him.

In other words, grappling skills allow you to overcome someone who is stronger than you through superior positioning. However, you are still limited by how strong you actually are, so becoming strong and skilled would put you at the greatest advantage.
And given the same level of strength the more technical player wins therefore you could just as easily state that being technical is most important. This is a pointless statement. If you want to beat other fighters you need both.
I would say otherwise, Baijiquan seems like a good martial art from China, mostly ran by Muslims so they know what's up. They focus on a lot of takedowns, hard striking, shoulder tackling and other shit you don't often find being emphasized in a Kung Fu style, plus it seems to be better at take downs than Wing Chun from what one demonstration vs they had between the students so, yeah, Baijiquan is the real deal Kung Fu.

Also Karate is a form of Kung Fu that came down from the Bubishi line of martial arts white crane kung fu and incense shop boxing, monk fist boxing was originally the name but yeah it didn't spread far enough.

Sanda practitioners usually practice something else on the side as well its MMA for Kung Fu applications basically.
As someone who studied Wing Chun (with plenty of pressure testing) for some time, for me it looks like somone with deep understanding of biomechanics woke up one day and decided to invent a martial art with some very specific self-imposed constraints and then did it, the absolute mad lad.
>Can I do a strong kick/punch without using my shoulders or rotating my torso? What if everything is a jab because straight line is the shortest distance? Idk, let me try

Do you have power in your hands? What type?
Do you have that KO switch in your hands, like Mike Tyson or Jack Dempsey? Or do you have that thudding power, like George Foreman or Kelly Pavlik? And how did you discover it?
I'm a thumper
I perforated someones bowel with a gut punch once, he had to get surgery
It wasn't a discovery, just an inate characteristic observable from day 1
Ever since I learned to punch the bag always sounded like a gun shot when I hit it. It always surprises people when they hold pads for me for the first time, like last time the guy calls over the main coach "yo check it out this guy's got brick hands!"

I think it's just my build that does it, I have a really high ape index with my wing span being nearly 4" more than my height
So short thick legs + long arms and naturally fast twitch muscles so I can generate a lot of power from the floor quickly and then throw it at the end of a long lever

This body of mine, I can't turn if I'm running but can punch good
I thought I had no power and were a volume puncher. I had fought and trained like one for years. However, at some point, I watched a boxing beginner vid and the trainer said someting like: "[...]You must flex your fist at that angle and just flex your forearm but not your shoulders etc. So, imagine throwing something in your opponents face."
The last sentence was a mental cue that did something with my brain and my body.
I tried it and my sparring partners told me, my hands were actually really heavy. I don't have flash KO power and I'm relatively slow. So, my opponents see my punches coming but they still don't want to be hit by my heavy shots. I can deliver a heavy hammer on their high guard with thudding power that rattles them.
Nope, feels like I'm pushing the pads more than anything. My round kicks do damage though, I can always see in their face when I touch them for the first time with it. Wish I could kill someone with my hands though.
For me it was a slow and gradual process of unlearning bad habits and learning proper technique
There's a new guy in my gym who has 20+ kg on me and say he fears my punches
If I could do it anyone can, just need patience and discipline

How will we ever recover!
I'm not watching a two hour video unless you give me some bullet points and a compelling reason to sit through it.
Here's a sparring drill you can set up with another in a randori sort of way: You will switch between top/bottom/aggressor/defender after three strikes or attempted throws or takedowns and spar this way with light touches only, nothing major. See if it can speed up learning and response time to defensive play.

THEN why are bets allowed on this fight?

How can a fight be notoriously fixed with money matters behind? It's would be illegal, they would get sued.

>It's eye opening to see so many retards on social media claim Tyson will win.
>They don’t realize he cherry picks every single one of his opponents so that can’t happen, including 60 year old retired champions.
The fact that he makes a point of doing this in the first place tells you everything you need to know about his level of ability.
I intend to place my first bet on sporting events on Mike Tyson but due to my states laws I will end up using Draftkings once I can bet on the fight. Does anyone have any opinions on Draftkings and is there anything I should avoid in the betting scene?
>How can a fight be notoriously fixed with money matters behind?
Yeah, because this never happened before, lmao.

If you are lucky and can get the animal by its hind legs and bash it against a hard surface repeatedly. You have to be strong enough to do this

Yes a random person can beat up a trained fighter. Training increases your chances but no one's invincible. If a random wrestler double legs Tyson he'd get btfo
If its an unsanctioned fight, any kid or adult can just grab a leverage (weapon is just leverage multiplier) and smash the trained fighter's head in, life is not pretty, life fights can turn nasty in a split second, your enemy was empty handed now you are both grappling to the ground, he grabs a bottle as you are falling down and starts smashing you to the head.

Shit like that can end anyone at a moment's notice.

Mike isn't smart enough to figure out how to do it.
He would just punch and get fucked.

Also the guy probably killed a small one.
Tigers are a fraction of the size of a grizzly bear.
I'm not here to suck Tysons dick, but 'a random wrestler' is a bit of a stretch. Tyson boxes professionally, but i imagine he's probably done some ground work.
The skill disparity would probably still matter. He is a world class fighter. No he's not invincible, but he's made unarmed physical violence his hobby and livelihood, and did it better than all but a handful of people. The odds of him winning any fight aren't 100%, but they're not below 99%. And this isn't specific to Tyson. If the 7 billion people in the planet, only a few hundred or a few thousand become professional fighters. Of that list, a fraction are memorable, and of those only a small percent have the talent to be as much of a staple in their respective sport.

All that said, Tyson would probably be much worse suited to fight an animal like that compared to a guy like Brian shaw.
And I'm not saying muscle beats experience in a fight been two people. But Brian shaw is literally twice his size and is a world class athlete as well.
I imagine fighting a bear or some other non human predator is not similar to fighting a person. But I am to lazy to look up anything to support that claim, and I have talked myself out of giving a fuck about the rest of my point.

Please call me a gay retard in your response

Why do you need to go to Thailand

Just go to a regular gym in your country
>I'd go to california to train at 10th planet HQ
You said you wanted to get good
It's cheap but yeah. Thailand is fine but overrated. Yes your conditioning and toughness will be good but you can do that anywhere. It's getting much better but the grappling is noticeably weaker and that muay thai style is definitely flawed in the head movement.
Come to my house and I will make you very powerful if my theories prove correct.
Yes most of the commercial Muay Thai gyms have no-gi and wrestling as well as general MMA classes. I'm going to fitness street in a few months to train at a few gyms there, come kick it with me.

This is just a question on should i keep trying to join or should i give up joining at this point.
>I try to join a branches/group in the SCA and get rejected because i asked to join the branches/group as a newcomers but no one seem don't want me to join the SCA at all and get really aggressive about joining in anyway or just don't tell me here to go to meet up for practice/training for fighting.

i tried to join when i was 18 years old now i am 30 years old, is there even a point to join anymore?

Just join some other sport. Everything I’ve heard about the SCA is that they think their weirdo knight and lord larp is real life and expect you to kiss their ass.
That's weird, they're usually eager for new fighters. Do you think there's a reason they don't want you specifically? If you reach out through the official channels of contact on the SCA website you might have better luck getting help from people if you think there's something about your physical presence that's particularly off-putting.
>i tried to join when i was 18 years old now i am 30 years old, is there even a point to join anymore?
There are lots of graybeards who fight in the SCA, you'll be fine on that front.
Hey everyone who have read this post and i want to say thank you gays for telling me about the SCA official channels on the SCA, but i think i should just walk on my own path on becoming a fighter out side the SCA.
Thank you all.
OP are you mentally well?
