I recently got assaulted and wants to take Brazilian jujitsu to defend myself. Does anyone know a good Brazilian jujitsu school in the Cambridge Massachusetts area? I lives by Harvard so the closer the better thank you.

/gtg/ Grappling Technique General
This will be a thread for people of all grappling disciplines (judo, wrestling, BJJ, etc.) to come and discuss or ask about technique. Here, we can avoid the retarded debates and help each other out with youtube links, instructional suggestions, troubleshooting ideas, etc.

Any serious grappler likely has questions from outside their main discipline. A judo guy starting BJJ might have some questions, or a BJJ guy trying to get better at wrestling.

This is NOT a self defense circlejerk thread, or a A vs. B circlejerk thread. Start with something like
>years of experience
>technique question or problem

I train at one of the most popular gyms in the world right now and I'm an instructional addict. I'll do my best to point people to the right resources.

dislocated climbing horror
~~ Flex Edition ~~

>Where do I start?
People typically start in the gym and branch off outdoors and find their niche, be it bouldering, trad, sport or a mixture of the above. Some never leave the gym at all. Ultimately it doesn't matter - just get started and enjoy yourself.

>How fit do I have to be to start? Do I have to be able to do x amount of pull-ups?
Being light, strong and flexible helps at the higher levels but climbing is open to almost anyone and is fairly intuitive to most. Even if your body is feeble and weak now, you will develop strength over time by virtue of just climbing. Climbing is a holistic sport and success often hinges upon many factors, not just strength and power, but having these qualities definitely helps when you breach into the higher grades.

>What shoes do I buy?
If you're starting out in the gym, don't worry too much: get some snug shoes without dead space that don't cause you lasting pain. Some people (such as the famed shoe designer Heinz Mariacher) recommend wearing soft shoes when you're starting out -- this makes sense since your footwork will probably suck and the increased feedback will pay dividends over time. You really don't need fancy expensive shoes when you're starting out, but certain shoe properties help send harder problems (e.g. stiff shoes for standing on tiny granite edges or soft shoes for sandstone/gritstone smears).

Here are some useful resources for sizing:

No Flow Edition:
Discuss the times you slowed down to scope out a line, then realized you needed a lot of speed to hit anything.

FAQ on buying a bike that nobody reads anyway:
> What good bike can I get for under $500?
>a stolen bike. Possibly a newer used entry level hardtail but don't expect it to survive rock gardens, jumps, or drops. Or an older mtb which won't be as good as newer ones and will still have a front derailleur, but it'll be good enough.
> What good bike can I get for under $1000
Good used hardtail, new entry level hardtail
> What good bike can I get for under $2000?
New Hardtail, decent used full suspension
> What good bike can I get for under $3000?
Used full suspension, decent entry level full suspension but prepared to put more money into it.
> What are the excellent value brands?
Marin, Commencal, Canyon, Polygon, YT, Propain, Kona, and many more. Sometimes the expensive brands have an excellent alue bike
>> What are the differences between an XC, Trail, Enduro, and Downhill bikes?
XC bikes are for going up fast, go down not as fast. Trail bikes are for going up and down. Enduro bikes are for going down fast, and slower up. Downhill bikes are for going down really fast, needs a ski lift, truck, or the rider pushing it to go up.

/jsa/ Japanese Sword Arts General:
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? [Open]

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

>Is Kendo a martial art or a sport?

>Where can I find a Kendo/Iaido club or dojo?

Start with the International Kendo Federation (FIK) and navigate to your country or region. If you live in a particularly large country, your country’s federation will most likely consist of regional federations. Some federations also include Iaido clubs.

>what do I need to start?
Basically nothing sweatpants and a shirt almost all the times your local club will borrow you the necessary equipment too start.

/DGG/ Disc Golf General
My close personal friend Paul McBeth edition
Season is closing out if you live in a shit state sub edition

>What is disc golf?
Its golf but with frisbees or discs. Generally played at parks that have free courses.
>What do I need to get started?
A disc and some shoes to walk around comfortably. (You should probably also bring some water anon and maybe download UDisc for a scorecard, or print / make your own)
>I'm new what disc should I buy?
Pretty much any decent disc will get you out and playing. You don't need to buy a starter set immediately, instead buy a putter and approach disc as its a pretty easy to throw disc for a beginner and then buy more discs from there.
>Are there courses around me?
Almost certainly, check for a pretty comprehensive list of courses and recommendations as to what ones near you are good.
>I bought a starter set and cant throw these things straight or far at all!
Go onto youtube and lookup guides idiot. Also learn to throw your putter first. It's most likely the easiest disc to throw in your bag and just because it doesn't fly as fast as a fairway or driver disc, It'll probably fly farther as It WILL fly straighter.

Most people you meet out on a disc golf course are gonna be pretty chill guys who'll either help you out if u get a disc stuck in a tree, or even give u a quick tip if you're new.

What do you think of bringing One dehydration rules to the UFC?
>nobody would die of dehydratation (so far it hasn't happened in the UFC though)
>no fights would be called off because of too harsh dehydration (it has actually happened)
>performance of fighters would be slightly better
>more fighters might be unable to make weight and some fights might be called off because of it

Also, it may require changes in weightclasses. Current LHWs wouldn't be able to cut to LHW so they would need additional 225 lbs class to avoid fighting much bigger guys. Giants like Derrick Lewis wouldn't be able to make 265 so the limit in HW should be abolished or moved up. Same with current woman's featherweights who might need a 155 class.

e-sports belong here
I never see e-sports threads on this board and this puzzles me. As an immortal ranked Valorant athlete and semi-pro Valorant coach, e-sports are arguably one of THE most extreme sports. Imagine keeping laser focus, all your senses primed, for 40-80 minutes STRAIGHT. Chad thinks he’s the superior athlete because he has bigger muscles, but I know I have 100x the focus, coordination, reflexes, and endurance by virtue of my training. I literally need to eat 3000+ calories a day just to support my brain energy.

>inb4 just post to /vg/

/vg/ is full of casuals. Is it too much to ask that my sport get the respect it deserves on this board? By that logic, martial “artists” should post to /fit/ instead. Brawling like an ape does not make you an athlete, Chad McNeurotrauma.

Tall half white half mexican freak girl savagely beat me up in muay thai class today.
I'm 5'6 while she's easily 6' plus. My nose was bleeding earlier today, one tooth from my upper jaw is loose, while my sides are still hurting from her roundhouse kicks. She humiliated me in front of everyone. I couldn't do shit, just fucking overpowered. She kicked my ass while wearing the most girly clothes possible, a pink gym skirt barely covering her asscheeks, black top with visible sports bra straps, and pink gloves. Our instructor fucking hates me, and I think he intentionally paired me with her to give her a good practice punchbag. She looks sexy though, when she bends, her ass looks shapely.

Strength/Skill Fallacy
So the fallacy that skill beats strength or strength beats skill is just that, a fallacy.

If you took a tiny, old woman and had her do 12 months of Judo training or some other intensive martial art training like Karate she would get stronger. She would get stronger and develop the skills of the art but most importantly she would be more physically conditioned. If you tested her bench press before and after 12 months of training and it was like 20 lbs. before and went to 45 lbs. that's a sign of improved strength.

It's like weightlifting, if my snatch goes from 75 lbs. to 135 lbs. in the span of 6 months of doing it. I didn't just improve the skill of performing a snatch but I got stronger.

I think people get too mixed up in this idea that strength and skill are separate, they are dependent on each other to exist.

Usyk vs Fury - Undisputed Heavyweight champion
Alright /xs/bros, who do you guys think wins this? It's been delayed a few times but it should HOPEFULLY be happening in May. I hope it at least happens this year.

When this fight was first announced I favored Fury but as time as gone on I find myself leaning towards Usyk. However I don't think Usyk will be able to stop Fury; he will win by decision if he does win.
The winner will not only be undisputed but undefeated as well. First undisputed HW champ since Lennox Lewis.

Headbutting contests
baki headbutt
All martial arts and fighting sports can be represented on a "violence gradient", where on one end you have the more choreographic and barely-violent styles, and on the other you have the most violent and less "artistic" ones.
In the past few decades interest has been shifting from the former, and more towards the latter, with bare-knuckle boxing competitions, street-fighting organizations, and even slapping contests, garnering more and more interest.
It's therefore clear that the only logical conclusion to these competitions is a headbutting contest.
You can have turn-based ones like with slapping, or you can have bouts where two dudes just hit each other until a ko or the time runs out.
People would develop techniques to dodge, hit delicate spots, and even set up combos.
There would be interesting match-ups between tank type dudes with giant necks and heads, and long-necked more athletic guys who can contort in seemingly impossible ways to execute advanced techniques.
Depending on the rules you could have them stand still or move around in a ring. You could allow grabbing the opponent or have their hands cuffed behind their backs (which would be a useful skill for the type of guy who'd take part in this).

Opinions? Suggestions on how it would be set up, or how to be more effective at it?

We need to make Skateboarding this again
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:

Fuck modern skateboarding, make skateboarding rad again.

also no "just run"

Belt System Alternative
Belt systems were cool at first but they are easily corrupted and nowadays they have become a joke in most styles that actually use them.

How would you fix and/or replace the belt system?

What do you think of Cejudo?
A few monts ago there was an O'Malley vs Sterling fight. After that, O'Malley said he has just beaten the bantamweight GOAT and as far as I remember Rogan thinks the same.

But I, as a Cejudo fan, don't believe them. In fact, Cejudo lost to Sterling but first it was split decision, second Cejudo haven't fought for 2 years cause he was "retired". Moreover, he won one of his fights against Demetrious and knocked out Dominic Cruz who also beat Demetrious.

So what do you think about this? Who's the bantamweight GOAT?

Which animals would be the strongest martial artists?
God decides to flood the world, except this time, you have to earn your spot on the ark.

Each species must enter into a fighting competition. Their intelligence is temporarily boosted to the level of the average human, and they are allowed 10 years of training within the hyperbolic time chamber, during which they don't age.

The animals are divided into weight classes, and further by habitat. You can't have a lobster fight a rabbit, for example.
Each bout consists of three fights, to the death. One in each of the natural habitats (bounded area) of the participating species, and one in an MMA octagon.

Of course, animals like bears and cats would clean house, but I'm more interested in less commonly discussed matchups.
Personally, I think primates would be a strong contender for one of the strongest orders. The dexterity makes them more suited to martial arts than most other animals, and having 4 or even 5 useable limbs would make them deadly grapplers.

Should I learn Muay Thai?
I’m curious about starting Muay Thai as a hobbyist, but I have a couple questions first:

1. Is Muay Thai worth learning if you’re about 5’9”, 160 pounds? I’m a skinnyfat dyel and am fully aware I need to bulk up a bit.

2. Will I feel more confident defending myself as a hobbyist? I’m not interested in competing since I’m 30 and need my brain for work, but I’d like to feel like I could handle myself (or at least put up a fight) in case I got jumped or something.

ITT: We take a non-extreme sport and change it to make it extreme.

Marathon but you can sabotage your opponents any way you want. Weapons allowed. Basically the Road Rash game but on foot.

Dodgeball with bocce.

Polo but with rodeo horses.

Water polo but the water is slightly acidic so your skin and eyes start to burn after a while and you can only get out (rotating with other team members) once you score.

Any motor sport but without brakes.

Soccer with bowling balls.

Squash but the room is so narrow and you can get hit by the other player's racket.

Basketball but the court is oiled.

It certainly gives you reach advantage over others in your weightclass and probably requires less strength training than bulking to a higher weightclass

Spearfishing and freediving... I dive alone although I shouldn't because the ocean is a pretty unforgiving place. I've had my fair share of close calls with death in the 10ish years I've been diving/spearing but it seems impossible to find a dive buddy that cant get time off work or away from the family. I try to get new people into it all the time, I've got enough extra gear to take a few people with me and teach them but everyone gets cold feet when it comes time and I end up diving alone.
Would you try it? If not, why?

Down to answer any questions about freediving, spearing or my experiences

Brachial Stun
There’s enough evidence to show that this strike does in fact work (and it shouldn’t be surprising that hitting a motherfucker in the neck real hard can knock them out) but my question is if intentional neck strikes were allowed in mma would we see this strike more often or does it only work on people who don’t know how to fight in the first place.

Recently got an ebike and had so much fun with it even though its a "street legal" model that doesn't go that fast and im looking to build my own slightly faster version soon with a mountain bike I bought, it would cost me around 1200-1400 to build . Should I just buy a surron/e dirt bike instead? they are around 4-5k where I live.

Also feel free to share your stories on ebikes. I love the idea of fucking shit up in packs doing wheelies, running from law etc. thanks

Yes, this is the DEADLIEST and most TERRIFYING fighting art known to man—and WITHOUT EQUAL. Its MAIMING, MUTILATING, DISFIGURING, PARALYZING and CRIPPLING techniques are known by only a few people in the world. An expert at DIM MAK could easily kill many Judo, Karate, Kung Fu, Aikido, and Gung Fu experts at one time with only finger-tip pressure using his murderous POISON HAND WEAPONS.

The Obesity Meta
And after all these years of training in various martial arts, I have just now realized the true meta for all fighting: obesity.

Weighing 300-400 lbs is one of the best advantages one can have in a fight. The sumo wrestler is the most formidable opponent anyone could face.

Fat is like natural armor. Strikes and kicks don't hurt the obese as much as they hurt thin people. I met a guy once (400 lbs or so) who could be hit in the stomach by one of our 190 lb kotokan cho-dans, full force, and not even flinch. It also protects their organs from knife attacks, and possibly even small caliber rounds.

In wrestling and bjj, they are practically immovable. Like wrestling an atlas stone. You need to be 7 feet tall to successfully pull guard. If they get a top position, you are already dead-- they put all their weight on you, and it is impossible to move or breathe. If you've ever been pinned by a person in your weight class, you know how exhausting it can be. The obese man is far worse to be under.

Their necks are so thick that choking is very difficult, especially if you don't have long arms. They are immune to all judo hip throws, and their fat bellies keep you at sufficient distance such that you can't do leg wraps or double leg takedowns. You can try to foot sweep them but even this is risky, as their weight is so immense that you can barely control where they might fall.

"Oh, just aim for the face!"
They have a protection sphere of obesity around them that prevents you from getting close to them. It's like a huge bubble of forced distance. If you are within striking distance of their face, you are well within their grasp.

"Just move around!"
The obese are less easily exhausted than they are made out to be on TV. They can put up a fight for a decent amount of time. A trained fatty will probably even outperform an untrained 200 lb man.

I can’t fight
I got concussed while boxing and am realising how easily I can fuck up my life over a hobby with a high-paying desk job, mum to take care of etc. On the flip side I feel like a bitch for backing down from fighting. I know that for my health’s sake I shouldn’t fight but as a man I feel incomplete without this skill. How do i deal with this?
