>trying to decide between going for a walk or playing disc golf. Played disc golf yesterday for reference.

Disc golf is like the least extreme sport imaginable, at least in regular golf there's the possibility of braining someone with the club.
>>
>>194090
I play regular golf too, I take regular golf more seriously so it’s not always as fun. Disc golf is purely for fun so it’s always really enjoyable.
>>
>>194090
discs heavier than 150 grams are banned in japan. rumor has it someone was killed by a frisbee there a few years ago

also anthony barela is mentoring cupcake this is going to end badly for us

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.
>>
>>194236
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.

I just wrestled with someone 10kg heavier than me. He was up against a wall
>He had old man strength, couldn't even trip him, he would wrap his ankle around mine to limit my movement
>Nothing was working, it's incredibly hard to do anything to someone resisting being taken down
>Go for a "high crotch" (learnt from: youtube.com)
>It works!
>Grab leg and put it closer to armpit then drive forward, he falls to the floor

Wow, this makes me realise how gimped and overcomplicated judo is as a grappling art

Wrestling just works.

I would argue it's more similar to chess in the sense that yeah it's not physically demanding, but it's more about the mental aspect and needing a solid clarity to not fuck up and even once or you die

If picrel hadn't happened it wouldn't have been so one sided. He basically wasted 2 rounds because of that shit

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

justin "I block with my face" gaethje has never been known for his technical prowess. He's just a guy that's about it and will throw down and that's why he's always fun to watch. He entertains to his own detriment
>>
>>194434
I disagree. IMO he's the best pure striker in LW before Max happened
>>
>>194439
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?

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?
>>
>>194278
too tall for a gymnast
>>
>>194278
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.

>>194311
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

Great bait. Sounds like you're talking from 1985. Only a few MMA fighters like Rob Whittaker and Wonderboy use a karate inspired striking style.

If you're a beginner you could try the seasonal resort employee bum approach. Some resorts offer cheap but shit employee housing and free lessons and passes as benefits. Main cons are you're working full time and whether you get the job or not is entirely dependent on how many argies and aussies they can convince to work poverty wages on J1 visas. I didnt do this but its one option
Cant really say much about what its like without knowing which parts of it you're most curious about.
>>
>>194293
>>194296
the employee housing was what I was gonna bank on, but failing that I have a bit of a cushion I could live off
if I couldn't get a job at a resort I'd be content living near one that I can get to with public transport and working separately from it
I guess just generally curious about how enjoyable it is?
I'm pretty keen on it because the idea of living on a resort and being literally right at such a fun physical activity would get me to spend time away from the internet, which I think I desperately need
I'm doing my community college online so going from so much computer time to so much offline time would be lovely

I enjoyed it a ton. Met a lot of cool people and I will definitely still be looking back on those days when I'm a vegetable. I definitely wouldnt do it my way again though, which was mostly couchsurfing. It wasnt great but I loved it because I loved the sport. The way you're talking about will definitely be easier, but much more expensive. I would say at least find out if you like it first and find ways to lower the cost before doing anything. Even if everything goes right and you still skimp a lot anyways, it will be very hard to break even and you will probably have to break into some of your savings.
As a beginner, I might even recommend doing it in a place with a ski area, but maybe a bit off the beaten path. Colorado is great and all, but unless you're there for the expensive tourist shit or you can ski the expert terrain it wont make much of a difference in your ski experience imo.

With Sean O'Malley being a open side counter merchant i.e stand in opposite stance and wait to counter opponent's rear hand with his own.
Would a follow up rear leg kick (like leon edwards did)/knee work to counter this counter?
I know theorycrafting is useless but one gotta spend time outside of training to think about stuff to try

especially with bigger gloves in kickboxing this would probably work even better with the body knee

I am planning on visiting an MMA gym soon. Being honest, I am scared as fuck. I am a long time sufferer of imposter syndrome and I feel like there's no way a physically awkward nerd like me can do this without embarrassing myself badly but I gotta try. My gf is constantly pestering me about having kids and deep down I feel like "how can I be a father if I can't even protect my family from other dudes?". That's basically my biggest motivation. I was wondering if you guys would be ok with me blogposting my progress here somewhere as I am also socially awkward(literally diagnosed with autism) and it's kinda easier to talk online about stuff like this than it is irl. Any beginners tips? Is there a general I should redirect my posts too? Btw I am a Vegeta chad(undefeated against Goku)

Yeah, I don't see that kind of argument coming up in gyms. Wouldn't make any sense. Most social situations are usually not about what's going on in the dojo. Unless there is an event coming up & even then we talk more about what we're gonna do after the comp. Like what restaurant we're going to break diet at. This board is so negative all the time. Just talk training & hype each other up. Why choose to be a critical douche? Not like anyone on this board is going to be remembered for their contributions to martial arts.

Don't sweat it so much and honestly if you're really worried about protecting your family, get a gun, teach your kids gun safety so they don't end up shooting themselves or each other.

Wushu doesn't get as much credit as it deserves. It's not a bad style.
The movies I like are The Protector and Ong Bak with Tony Jaa.
Who Am I with Jackie Chan, that rooftop fight scene is spectacular.
The legend of The Drunken Master with Jackie Chan is also good. Original has better kung fu, remake has a better and more cohesive story.
IThe One from Jet Li. It's kind of silly but I enjoy it.
The Quest from JCVD is a personal favorite of mine.
Red Belt is pretty good. I like that it shows the backend of what running a school is like.
Broken Sword Hero is another good one.
