With a country with such crushing limitation around the ways in which you could fight, both culturally and in terms of simply how much we knew about fighting, it doesn't take much thinking to realize that 99% of chinks from that time would lose to the fast majority of modern MMA fighters, and it wouldn't even be close.

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?

>Do light sparring and do fine

>Have to stop because pain is too much
>Feel like a little bitch in my gym

Any tips on how to build pain tolerance especially in the face so I don’t feel it as much? Some people say to just spar harder and adapt the hard way but I want something more gradual to where I can build my pain tolerance slowly. I was considering doing headgear but not sure if thats the correct thing to do to gradually build up pain tolerance.

Anything legitimate combat sport you train consistently is going to put you leagues above the average person so just pick whatever one you like the most and are willing to train long term.
>>194238
All martial should seek to make the most efficient use of your body against the opponent. Opponents with no training are inefficient in the use of their strength and because of that a trained but smaller man can sometimes defeat a larger one. What matters is that you practice consistently.
>>
>>194236
Any martial art COULD work if trained correctly, but if I had to pick one, probably some sort of stand-up wrestling since close range makes their superior reach pointless and your center of gravity is already lower than theirs.

Muay Thai, BJJ, or a combo of both.

>enough striking to know safe distances
Lanklets can use teeps, oblique kicks, jabs and crosses to keep the safe distance but there's no safe distance for a manlet other than running away. If he doesn't want to grapple, he should go close enough to throw a hook or uppercut and use footwork, head movement and blocks not to get hit.

Maybe holloway tripped him out, he has weird movement

>>194393
He's been ducking since WSOF and even in Wittman's striking instructionals he does that even while demonstrating basic footwork and Trevor has to correct him not to duck. At this point it's so ingrained and honestly it's a huge weakness. In his last fight with Poirier Poirier tried to punish his ducking with roundhouse but Max got to be the first one to truly capitalize on it

Eh, I still think Dustin is better technically, more efficiant. The highkick that put him out was a great move, but it wasn't a complete outclassing.

Samurai of the dark future edition.

A thread to discuss Kendo/jutsu, Iaido/jutsu.

>What is Kendo?
Kendo is a modern Japanese martial art which combines traditional Japanese swordsmanship (Kenjutsu) techniques with sporting elements for competition. It is practiced with shinai (bamboo swords) and armor. The philosophy of modern Kendo is based off of Budo concepts and aims to develop the self through practice.

>What are the rules of Kendo?
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Cb13DKpDd_k [Open]

>Am I too old to practice Kendo?
No. Westerns start later and many people practice Kendo until they’re dead.

>Is Kendo a martial art or a sport?

fact is it wouldn't be nearly as popular of a hobby as it is if this show never existed since it's the thing that inspired so many kids to get involved

And the themes stayed throughout the series
His way is the reason vegeta struggled so much and always felt like he was being left behind
All vegeta did was train, he mistakenly thought more = better
But goku had the balance of hard training and good restful relaxation
Allowing his body time to recover means his workouts would be more productive, unlike vegeta who did much higher volume and saw diminishing returns on his effort

Once vegeta becomes a family man and learns to relax is when he was finally able to achieve the same heights in power just as easily as goku does

Blew my fucking mind, you're right! That actually makes a lot of sense because he does nothing but over train, meanwhile Bulma is the nad smashing ball & chain that slowed him down just enough to chill the fuck out. Also worth noting that Dads get a T boost immediately pre&post baby. Don't know the specifics. Probably something about the hormones of pregnant women/infant children triggering a response in men because mom to be is in a heightened vulnerable state & need greater protection/sustenance.... Dude, could trolling around maternity wards boost T? Will I get in trouble for just huffing rando newborns & soon to poo preggos? I need to know... For science. Dragonball was truly ahead of its time. Lol.

Do you think the rising average age of female gymnasts has effected the expected skill level?
Are people expecting higher skilled but less physically demanding performances now? Or has the change in training resulted in the peak performance for women reaching a later age?

Yes they're not as good now. Girls have to peak for the olympics right at 16 otherwise they will miss: Either they compete too old, lose to 16 year olds and 14 year old chinese with fake documents. Or they are too young in olympics year, ineligible because their government won't lie about their age for them.

At least when it comes to some of the events, like rhythmic, there's quite a few 20+ year olds that take the Olympics and the world championships.
Both Russians in rythmic in 2016 and 2020 were 20+, for example.
And Sanne won the balance beam at 26 years old, and Jade won the 2020 at 20.

Overall the winners are getting older too it would seem.

don't get it confused

karate is the correct most efficient way to fight, whether you study karate formally or not eventually you will arrive at the same conclusion if you study how to make your fighting most effective
it's convergent evolution

karate is the only street fighting striking art, and while MMA is not street fighting it's closer to street fighting than something like muay thai is for example, and so of course MMA striking will always bias towards being more karate-like in application
