>inb4 ‘they’re just fat middleweights’
If that were true then they’d have to be more skilled to make up for such a physical disadvantage whilst competing at a high level.

I remember when Nelson first stepped on the scene and people I knew were complaining that he used fat kid tactics to win fights.

How can you consider yourself an "ultimate fighter" if a fat guy can beat you by lying on top of you?

There's not that many of them, so every fat guy gets a go.

And it's very telling when they fight against a guy who isn't a complete shitter and end up subbed in 2 minutes by a basic guillotine.

I will lay it all out for you
Bjj is on the way out, where like karate it may have growing popularity among normals but gets taken less and less seriously by martial arts dorks

Bjj is a kimono based grappling style with very rudimentary basic takedowns, no real stand up grappling skills to speak of, and a built in aversion to leg entanglement based attacks

Now the white man has come along, ditched the gi, embraced wrestling, and developed new leg attacking systems to make use of attacks previously shunned and banned by the Brazilians for decades

They call this submission grappling, and you're seeing it pop up where there gyms are now changing their names to say that instead of Brazilian jiujiujitsu

The Brazilians are very salty about this because what's happening to them is what they did to the japanese
A lot of judofags say bjj is basically just judo, we've always had all that stuff too (cope and lie)
Now bjjfags are looking at submission grappling and saying it's basically just bjj, we have always had all that stuff too (cope and lie)
>>
>>195817
Using your terms I have always been doing submission grappling.

I have seen a fair bit of cope from bjj guys getting upset no one will listen to there out dated shit.

If bjj will vanish and leave behind submission grappling I think it is for the best.
>>
>>195819
The legacy of bjj will be its asinine rules that retarded the development of grappling for a generation
We can thank keenan for accelerating its death with his lapel innovations that exposed just how stupid and easily exploited the rules are

In the future I will have nogi submission grappling only, however I will still rank people up because acquiring ranks is important for lots of folks
Instead of belts though I will give them kawaii pantsu, white, tiffany, pink, duckling, and moissanite

So that way people can receive something for their hard work but it's attached to a humiliation ritual because you should be embarrassed if that's what you care about

IoM TT is not comparable. They are not a bunch of stoners downplaying the risks, talking about "flow states" and believing their own bullshit. They also have nearly an entire island on standby as volunteers and everyone involved is well aware their actions are dangerous and put themselves and others at risk of death.

Just because you are clever does not mean you are not susceptible to stupid behaviour. Humans are notoriously good at self-rationalizing. Climbing grades encapsulates that concept very well.
Free-solo climbers regularly absolve themselves of stupid behaviour because they falsely believe the only cost of an accident is their life.

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?

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

Two years of experience and you feel bad about losing?
I don't think anyone expected you to win. Ask yourself if you showed all you can do. And why. That's all.
And clubs go up and down. A good generation is up for years winning everything and then they quit (job, kids, get bored...) and leave a void that other clubs take advantage of and that younger kendokas take YEARS to recover until the more competitive clubs retire their champions again for similar reasons.
It is the life cycle of kendo.

Shuwen is more verifiable than most, purely because we know he was sought after, the People's Liberation Army hired his students for their security detail, and this was after the Boxer Rebellion humiliated the martial artist gangs/cults of China.

So I've been trying to get the balls to attend a gym that does freestyle and Greco wrestling. It took a lot to go to it as I know it's the toughest sport, and I'm not "young".

Twice now I have managed to gather up all my strength and start making my way to the gym, only for freak occurances (train literally going straight past the station, train being delayed for an hour) which left me unable to get there on time

I'm just wondering if any of you had the same sort of issues when you started training. Was the universe basically telling you to stay away but you persisted? Feel like im pushing my luck trying to go a third time lmao

Thank you for reading

I take signs from God as they come

Like I have a few cars needing repairs laying around so my drive way is full and I have to park one on the street at night next to a hydrant
Been doing this for almost a year a this point and then 2 days ago a guy randomly comes to the front door and says "I see there's no plates on that jeep in the drive way, I'll give you $400" for it
So I sold it to him and now I can park in the drive way
Then last night wouldn't you know it ther was something going on at the neighbors house and the fire department came and needed to use that hydrant which I had been blocking for months

Not doxxing myself but near a major city, there are exactly 2 pure wrestling gyms (too far away for me) and 1 martial arts gym that does 2 wrestling classes a week

There are MMA gyms located more frequently that do striking/bjj/wrestling but usually only one class a week and very expensive. It's rare here and I still have to travel close to an hour to reach my nearest one

Also we don't have any school or college wrestling here.

No swelling at all, feels weird and tingly. Hurts when I attempt to walk on it. Doctor claims only meniscus tear but nurse told me the doctor half asses his job. Going to try to schedule an MRI.

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)

Your mind is in the right place anon. Deep down everyone has some level of imposter syndrome, just keep moving and doing your thing. If you ever feel unmotivated remember that motivation is the fuel of the week, the strong thrive on discipline. Go exercise a bit, work on your cardio and flexibility, specially if you hear any pops or anything weird. Don't be too picky about the gym you are going to, at first, go to the nearest one, get some experience, and if with time you want to experience other stuff or go to a more hardcore gym do it. And yes, do post your progress, I believe it will motivate other anons to do the same. Just remember this is a slow thread so keep using the same one for as long as possible.
>Any beginners tips?
Fighting for me is about two things: control and creativity. Control as in breathing control, stamina control, distance control, pain control, body control, etc. Most of these things you can learn and practice before even fighting. Muscle memory also, that is half of the game to almost any physical endeavor. Follow your coaches instructions, don't worry about speed, don't worry about energy, focus on your form and repeat, repeat, repeat. Lastly, when you gain confidence and learn the basics and its forms, don't be afraid to try new techniques, just don't get hurt.

Good luck anon.
