>when putting wraps, you should avoid wasting it wrapping around your palm as you only want to protect your outer hand
Why? The purpose of putting on wraps is to tighten you hand as much as possible so you won't bust any of the 28 bones you have in your hand when you punch. Most of these small bones are located in your palm area. Yeah you should obviously protect the knuckles, wrist and thumb, but also your fucking palms.

Is that how you wished you looked like? pull your fucking pants up
>>
>>198654
Bitch, learn anatomy and mechanics and you will see how retarded you sound. Your knuckles are the most robust part, but the issue is that the metacarpian bones behind them are set up in such a way that when you apply force to the knuckles, that the leverages translate to them splitting appart, which can cause bone and, more importantly, tendon injuries.
I can tell you have never punched with all your might ever.
>>
>>198716
>this confidently retarded
>telling others to learn anatomy
Whew is it summer already? My degree is 90% anatomy, you don't know shit. You're not punching so hard your metacarpals are splitting apart. And the tendons run parallel to the bone retard.
>>198664
I refer back to my other post. Boxers fracture are more common in boxing, despite OP alleging they use the safer wrap.

I am taking a shit & had a thought so lemme dump on you some more while I wash my ass with the bidet.
>Your knuckles are the most robust part
You're fucking retarded. No matter what style of hand wrap is used, knuckles are the main focus. All the tendons for digit extension/flexion run through the knuckle & are most vulnerable at the joint. Almost all tendon ruptures/impingements occur at the joints.

that’s something i’ve been working on for a while. it’s difficult on hyzers to load onto my heel, but delaying my reachback as long as possible has actually made the most difference on the pivot. the robinson brothers both like to pivot off the ball of their foot more than not from what i’ve noticed but yeah most high-level golfers go on the heel.

what are some possible reasons my bike doesn't go as fast as it used to? the gears don't shift smoothly anymore and it feels like the chain is worn down but I don't know enough about bikes to assess it myself. my bike was built in 2007 so it's not new, but what are some common issues with a bike this old? I want to get it repaired so I can ride it again.

>Gegard Mousasi is not happy with the PFL.
>“I think they bought Bellator but they don’t have the financial means to pay the fighters,” Mousasi said. “Whoever is not necessary, they will just not let them fight. Especially fighters that make a lot of money. Because Bellator fighters make more.
>At the end of 2023, PFL acquired Bellator MMA in a landmark deal, which PFL executives promised would lead to a new era of MMA. Unfortunately, that new era has not extended to Mousasi, who has gotten off to a rough start with PFL, primarily over the lack of fights and even communication coming from the promotion. And after recently attending a PFL event in Paris where Mousasi still made no headway in booking a fight, the former Bellator middleweight champion has reached his limit.
>“Yeah, [I feel disrespected] because they don’t even want to pick up the phone and talk to us,” Mousasi continued. “It’s not even funny anymore. It’s the worst organization so far. I’ve fought in a lot of organizations, this is the worst one.”
>>
>Mousasi has not competed since dropping a decision to Fabian Edwards at Bellator 296 in May 2023. The former champion signed a new contract with Bellator prior to the company getting acquired, and Mousasi said he’s been told by PFL officials that they were not aware of his new contract when acquiring Bellator and that’s why he hasn’t been offered a fight.
>“My contract is a couple million. ... Whatever deal you make, it’s not possible that someone slipped a letter between the other letters and no one found out. Everything has to be signed by lawyers. So whatever they did, they knew about it. They said they’d take everyone from [Bellator]. So they took me, they knew the contract, and now they’re like, ‘Well, they slipped it in.’ You’re not buying McDonald’s, you’re buying a million-dollar company. It’s not believable that they didn’t know and someone wanted to f*** with them, so they did a very fast contract and no one knew about it. It’s just not true. Everything has to go through lawyers. “I don’t know why you even took Bellator if you don’t have the money to let the fighters fight.”
>“I’ve talked to legal council, I’ve talked to managers, lawyers, other people who worked for Bellator, I know I have a contract,” Mousasi said. “They owe me at least one fight, and then they can let the clock run out. At least. So it doesn’t start until I fight. Something like that. The problem is, you never know who is going to win in a lawsuit. So I hope it doesn’t get there.”

Co-leader by 2030!

In DnD, whenever I play, I absolutely hate when players who choose a martial class don't add flavour to their attacks. "I hit him with my sword 3 times", "I punch him twice" is the most you'll get out of them. I hate it even more when the DM does it or when when the DM doesn't allow accumulative damage in games if you target a specific area with enough strikes. I get that the dweebs at WoTC only put barely half the effort of making martials viable in high levels with the battlemaster fighter subclass, but do NONE of these guys have love for the "ART" part of martial arts? Theres so much flavour you can put, like if a player goes for an elbow to the face enough times there will be a cut above the eye that now gives the opponent a disadvantage on perception checks and attacks due to not being able to see. Or hell implement ANY sort of good ruleset for how grappling arts can be used in game to help break limbs, throw enemies to the ground or completely isolate/submit opponents. Or if the player makes a high enough dex check with a weapon once per the enemies turn, they can immediately parry and get a quick strike in.

Maybe this is the price I pay for being into martial arts and dweeb shit at the same time but holy shit is it ever annoying. Especially when no one seems to want it changed.

With some LARPs like that one there's a larger organization with interconnected stories so they're usually handled with a greater degree of standardization and fewer house rules than some one-off game you run locally for your friends. The game session I joined had at least a couple dozen players and several GMs who had to communicate and coordinate with each other to run that single session in that single location.

Not sure if this is supposed to go on /xs/ or /sp/, but what do you think of the sport? All I see on here is HEMA.

I'm trying to get into it and I'm looking to pick up some gear. I probably want to fence Epee. Any recommendations? The club has gear, but a lot of it is gross and sometimes not working, especially for left handed stuff.

Why does Olympic fencing take place on a linear strip instead of a circular arena? Is this a compromise for electric scoring or an older convention?
>>
>>198638
Older convention, evolved from Italian rapier fencing that theorized that controlling the center line was the safest and most efficient way to attack the opponent, continued on with smallsword fencing which became foil and subsequently epee. Saber too since foil fencing was often taught as a training exercise for saber since it taught really good point control.

Did we jump timelines again? How the fuck is this actually happening? Am I being fucking bamboozled?

Modern skateboarding fucking sucks. Everyone skates like a robot: same tricks, same style (both clothing and trick execution), everyone at the skateparks are way too serious and tryhard. Nobody carves or has any real style, just the same in-line tight truck 5 approved tricks tried endlessly in a row.

How do we make skateboarding like 1988-1992 again? Bright day glo colors, giant ass fish boards with rails, tricks that are whatever the fuck you felt like doing that day and who fucking cares if you drag a hand or a toe as long as you surf out of it. People used to all have a sense of humor and goof around and improvise halfway through a trick, not stand around like soulless autistic robots and give up if the autism flip didn't land perfect in the sperg grind. And for the love of fuck, they listened to ROCK and METAL, not this horseshit faggot ass trap music rap bullshit.

Skateboarding used to be rad as fuck and whatever gay shit it is today isn't worth being around. I don't see any tricks around today that weren't being done back then, it just had more pizzaz then.

Like, watch this part and tell me you aren't 1000x more amped to skate than some bullshit dropped today: https://youtu.be/3c7XV-FC59k?si=RAAuO_Fu-BT8R2RF&t=21

Fuck modern skateboarding, make skateboarding rad again.

Guy is talking about someone he meets at a bar, that is "approaching" 40 as a boomer and a grandpa. What a dipshit. Boomers are the children of WW2 veterans. They are 75-85 years old now. Im a 48 year Genx that hasn't had grandchildren yet, but I don't know many that are grandpas before they're 40.

And you're in a bar? You're already out dated for skateboarding and just haven't figured it out yet.

So just go back to the industrial production line of thirty 6 year old's practicing kick flip shovits (thats a trey flip) at your local skate park. You uncoordinated out of shape, computer fat, lazy Millennial, self entitled, can't ever buy a house , can't afford food, always fucking crying, poser.

Any GenX want to entertain themselves. Go watch Tim Pool skate videos. Most fat sloven, stranded mess. Pulling tricks that are awesome, with zero coordination. Thats what skateparks did for us. They gave our children a production line of the best tricks with zero style.
