You have to wear flipflops outside of the mat as you go through the actual gym and lobby to the locker and toilets heh
You also have to clean it up the tatame from time to time . Use a broom then alcohol. I used to clean it up the tatame for free with a friend of mine before the class.

lmfao all these fuckers are lying to you

you have to have already jumped milliseconds before the pop occurs

basically pretend its sf and ur sagat and ur regular so tiger knee happens with leading left knee
>tiger knee (+kick)
>pop happens behind you (your right foot taps the ground very rapidly using your ankle and calf)
>you've already tiger knee'd so the leading foot is dragging up as the board comes into your foot *
>lift your back mother fucking foot as soon as your ankle snaps, tuck that back knee into your shoulder as you tiger knee

you can do it. an ollie is just a human jumping while kicking a skateboard in a way that makes it follow your trajectory. it’ll happen. never give up!
Thanks fren
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?

I has job security because nobody had my skill set
So like for example I had a group with 20something 7-11 year Olds in it and I made them all stand in a line at the beginning and I said there's a lot of you in here and only one of me, so there won't be any warnings, if you don't listen you're out and that's it
Well 2 seconds later 2 boys are wrestling on the ground so they were made an example of and banished immediately

Then their affluent Karen moms complained to me about how its unfair and they bring there kids here specifically for class and they're working moms and they're just kids. And I said you know who else are kids? The 20 other ones in the room that listened to what I was saying
Just ignore, anon. Smile and nod and exit the conversation. You owe him none of your time and attention. He can be a drama queen and pull his kid from the class, which is all the better.
wrestle him. whoever wins gets custody of his son
You know what fucking PISSES ME OFF!

Its definitely not worth losing your job keep it tranquillo

Jones would submit + elbow him to oblivion.
Jones is having difficulty submitting paperwork these days.
it would be such a good fight. especially if jones was in his prime

after analisys of over 300hours of video it was found that 96% of fights are only punching in the face/head

learning boxing is the most important skill for self defense

do not let anyone get close to you either, if you lose control of the distance atack first.

I personally love Krav Maga. Fundamental skills like punching and kicking are done as warm ups . From day one we did cardio. Other skills like knife and gun defenses were shown . Going to the ground and grappling was discouraged because in real life that's only good for one on one, not multiple attackers. Last of all Krav Maga is proven, as it's used by God's people the Israelis.
blades, knives, swords, and spears are the true weapons of warriors. Guns are good for distance fighting, but once you run out of ammo, you are defenseless against zombies.
Funny enough Israeli style they don't carry a round in the chamber so there's a 0% chance these suckers would get a shot off in you by the time you are on them
Not a martial artist, have been in 1 real fight and a couple "scraps" in the past. If I could have chose a background in grappling or striking right there, I would have chose grappling easy. If you're in a fight for your life striking might be more viable. But if you're in the typical drunk/high guy is mad about something and comes at you, people are yelling about calling the cops with their phones out, beating the crap out of the person is not on your mind. All I kept thinking was that if I rock this drunk jack ass in the face and he falls and cracks his skull on the curb, I might be charged with manslaughter. I can knock his teeth out right now but one of these dumb asses filming could edit it to look like I started it, and I get taken in for assault.

It was a lot easier to yank him to the ground and pin him till the cops came and arrested him. I am decently in shape now, but was not at the time, thankfully the guy was off his rocker and had downed 20 beers in a few hours while I was sober DD

The issue I'd see with grappling is if you're in an unfair fight against multiple people really trying to kill you. I'm sure an experienced BJJ guy could handle 2 drunk guys. 2 muggers with a knife is questionable. You pin one guy while the other shanks you in the kidney?
And that really goes into why fighting back isn't the best form of self defence. Cardio is, lol. Better to outrun the 2 guys with knives than try and properly box them

It's annoying how difficult it is to just refer to FMA by one name. The way I make sense of it all is most Northern FMA practioners call it Arnis. Practittioners from Visayas, Cebu, and Mindano will mostly call it Escrima, Then there is another group who will insist on calling it Kali because Escrima and Arnis are derived from spanish terms for fencing Escgrima and Arnis de Mano.
Yaw Yan is not a traditional Filipino Martial Art.. It's a modern hybrid creation like how Jeet Kune Do and American Kempo were created . In many ways it's much more of a brand, just by examining the name of it Yaw Yan means "The Dance of Death" It looks fun, and I see many of techniques do look effective, but it's a commercialized school practiced in westernized gyms. it's not traditional like the FMA which uses sticks, spears, wooden shields, swords, and knives
>is dancing an extreme sport?
How much of FMA was preserved through dance? Does anyone still train it as a dance?
How do y’all feel about the indisputable fact that LARP groups produce the most technical stick fighters in America
The competitive FMA scene in CONUS isn't that big so some of the more athletic LARP groups end up being solid places to pressure test certain techniques against a larger pool of fighters on a more regular basis. Some of the more serious stickdorks do study FMA (and other disciplines) and apply that to their sport so it's definitely not a one-way exchange. Each format makes different compromises but short of actually killing your opponent with your baston you're going to have to sacrifice some realism for some partner safety.

As a small but mighty board, /xs/ has their own Soccer (not an extreme sport, I know,) team that fights other boards. This is done by making a computer play pro evolution soccer. Most recently, our former boardmates over at /pw/ won. Our roster is largely unchanged from the early days of the board: so I'm putting it up here for people to give feedback on. If there is a meme or shitpost you like from your threads (especially you guys, fight bros,) please hit me with it and what you think no longer represents the board. This is all autistic as fuck, I know.

Turn Hakuho into PUNISHED Hakuho
Oh shit, didn't see this before, change Hakuho to Terunofuji and call it "Exploding Knees"
Yeah, I am not helping
Indeed, hakuho in a janny suit would be neat.

Something to represent the floor hugging sports would be nice

In any case, next ( possibly final) match is in around 1 hour vs /m/. Basically need a win and a r9k win afterward to go forward

If 100 random men and 100 random women were chosen to fight in mixed sex mma with legal groin shots, how many women would win?
11 replies and 2 images omitted. Click here to view.
Possibly 1 woman out of the 100, I would give that like a 2% chance or lower compared to 98+% chance of all 100 men winning.
They would wear a cup so not that many
Statistically speaking I would expect 5-10 women to win as I believe that is the overlap in the strength bell curves. If they're paired by weight class then I'd expect 0 or 1
You are aware that women can be kicked in the crotch as well and it hurts similarly badly, right anon? Or is this just another retarded inter-sex combat thread that you faggots are obsessed with for some reason? Surely not.
I expect a few women to win. There are some really beta and pacifist guys out there and some horrible and trashy women who don't mind throwing hands

I know nerds cope and say otherwise but fighting is massively a mindset and the ability to do damage without thinking about it. You put some tech funko pop onions up against a ghetto ass female and she will fuck him up

-6 points deduction
>legalize heel hooks for brown and black belts in gi
disagree, people need to understand that at this point no gi is a different sport altogether
t. no gi only leglocker
That's fine, but your position basically is let gi continue to be a fucking joke so it goes away like it deserves to
The lack of heel hooks is not the problem
I agree and I say this as someone who dabbled in Sambo because I lived nearby a heavily Russian area (judoka here).

Leglocks are the last submissions that people should learn and practice. It'll develop bad habits without learning guardwork, sweeps, rolls, control of positions.

The first submission that someone should learn is armlocks. Then chokes. Finally leglocks. All in that order, but you have to really master armlocks and chokes first because you'll have a good grasp on how to fight on top as well as on your back.

I don't like slams. In self-defense and street fights, I'd advocate that but not in competitive sport.

And you can't butt-scoot. You have to initiate some kind of action to engage instead of passively waiting for the other guy to come. Within 30 seconds of being on your back while the other is on their feet, you either get back into standing position, or you try to attack the opponent's legs.
Too many changes at once. They need to make butt scooting bad in some way and then see what shakes out. That's the biggest thing making the sport a joke.
Imo you should get a point deduction if you go to ground without maintaining control of the opponent.
