What snowboard should I get?
arbor crosscut rocker
Hey guys, I need a new snowboard for this season and I need some recommendations. I don't spend a ton of time in the park, so I'm mostly interested in freeriding or powder boards, preferable rockers. Pic related seems like a good pick (plus it's cheap), but are there other models I should look at?

/DGG/ Disc Golf General
>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 https://www.dgcoursereview.com/ 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.

Feel free to post photos from your local courses or discs.

DON'T TELL ME HOW TO RIDE A BIKE, BOY, I'VE BEEN RIDIN SCHWINNS SINCE YOUR DADDY WAS IN DIAPERS, I KNOW WHAT I'M DOIN

FAQ:
> 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
Used hardtail
> What good bike can I get for under $2000?
New Hardtail
> What good bike can I get for under $3000?
Used full suspension
> What are the excellent value brands?
Marin, Commencal, Canyon, Polygon, YT, Propain, and many more. Sometimes the expensive brands have an excellent value bike.
This is a handy guide. Not comprehensive but a good guide for american riders. Europeans and Asians have access to other brands.

/cg/ - Climbing General #8
climb
The route setter known as 4chan edition

>Should I start climbing?
Yes. Get a friend, find your closest gym, go there and rent some shoes. Start with bouldering. Usually two colored tape-marks set the start of the route and the color of the tape is difficulty. Route is the same-colored grips up until the topmost grip (not edge of wall). There's usually a difficulty chart around the gym somewhere. Two hands on the last grip = you've sent it, congratulations.

>How do I start toproping?
You have to learn how to belay. Almost every climbing gym has toproping courses if they have toprope walls. Same grip-color system as with the bouldering, but here it's more common with each route having a specific grade instead of being within a range of grades. The grading system differs internationally and for style see here for more info: https://www.sportrock.com/post/understanding-climbing-grades

>I just bought a BeastMaker 2000™, will I finally git gud?
No, you'll just fuck up your tendons. Google "Eva Lopez fingerboard routine" to learn how to use a fingerboards safely.

Discuss Western Martial Arts. I.e. living non-HEMA arts with documented Western/European lineages.

Anymore to add to this list?
- Wrestling (Catch-as-Can, freestyle, Greco-Roman)
- Boxing (Bare Knuckle, amateur, professional, Savate)
- Fencing (foil, epee, saber, single stick - can this one be classed as living still?)
- Archery (target, field, clout, crossbow, flight)
- Shooting (multigun, bullseye, field, rapid, clay, running)

Add and discuss any you think fit the criteria (I.e. a living art with documented Western/European lineage).

Modern hybrid arts with mixed Eastern-Western lineges like Kickboxing, Submission Grappling; or historic reconstructed arts like HEMA are great but not what this thread is for.

>Judo uses throws: You don't actually want to hurt the other guy, so you throw him in a way that makes it possible to breakfall
>Wrestling uses slams: The mats are thick and soft so breakfalling is not necessary, so you slam. In a real fight, this would make it impossible to breakfall and break bones and joints, whatever hits the concrete first at full speed is destroyed.

tl;dr: In a brawl, use slams. Pic related would be a broken elbow, maybe broken shoulder and broken collarbone for the guy in red.

Threadly question: Which injuries kept you off the bike? I've had a few crashes where I thought I had to take a break from riding but it turned out that pedalling didn't hurt me at all. These include spraining my ankle when I lost my rear on dry leaves on dust, tearing open my knee in 2 crashes, and breaking my toe while rock climbing. I think COVID might keep me off the MTB for a while but only because the technical climbs I like doing make my heart rate spike way higher than a steady climb on road.

Buhurt
that hurt
You've heard of Buhurt, right? A combat sport that has recently come back into popularity after being shut down and forgotten for nearly 600 years.

Then name Buhurt comes from a loose translation of some old french word for wallop. But that's not important. What is important is watching guys in full steel plate armor with real steel weapons stepping into a ring and beating the fucking shit out of each other.

Matches usually range between 1v1, 2v2, 5v5, 8v8, 16v16, all the way up to 150v150.

The rules are simple. Do whatever it takes to knock your opponent to the ground.

I have 4 friends (2 wrestlers, and 1 boxer and kickboxer) and we spar under mma rules fairly frequent not holding much back.

/cssf/ - Combat Sports in Street Fights General
images
Discuss which combat sports are best in "da streets!" and not the cage.

TMA faggots not allowed. Your shit doesn't work under any contexts.

Which is better for street fighting, grappling or striking?

I lean towards striking as unlike the cage I have rarely seen fights in streets go to the ground.

And 9/10 rarely beyond punches being thrown so boxing would be my choice for most effective for self-defense.

I think K-1/unified kickboxing or Muay Thai would work well if you already have good boxing skills, as never met anyone who could check low leg kicks without being drilled it.

For in the streets grappling possibly Judo over wrestling as people tend to wear jackets depending on the climate where you live. Tho wrestling for the cage.

BJJ outside of standing submissions that I think Judo has anyway, I can't see having any practical use in the street. Tho obvs its the most successful style in the cage.

Is there a Japanese MA equivalent to ACL? Where participants dress up in Samurai Armor and go at it with Japanese weapons? I know of Kendo, and have looked into it, but I feel that Kendo doesn't really satisfy that itch. I want something that's aggressive like ACL.

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.

>News
Marbula One Season 2 returns from its break starting with race 7
Oceanics managed to win the 2021 Winter Marble League, redeeming themselves after their disastrous 2019 Marble League outing

>What is Marble League?
The Marble League is a tournament that features the most decorated and dedicated marble sports athletes. Every year, teams of five marbles compete in Qualifiers and the top 12 teams, along with 4 automatically qualified teams, advance to the main tournament. After an exquisite opening ceremony, the 16 teams perform in a series of events that are inspired by real-world Olympic events, earning medals and scoring points towards an overall total. The team with the most points at the end of the tournament is the team that wins the Marble League, standing at the top of the podium during the closing ceremony and having the honor of extinguishing the torch at the end of each year.

one coach told me fistss should tilt slightly while other tells me it should be fully rotated

because they can't catch you as easily across the chin since it doesn't protrude as much, therefore it is less likely for your brainstem to be suddenly shaken to the point of blacking out.

/jsa/ Japanese Sword Arts General
kendo_activity
One year later edition.

A thread to discuss Kendo/jutsu, Iaido/jutsu. OP post tailored towards Kendo since it is the most commonly practiced.

>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

>Am I too old to practice Kendo?
No. Westerns start later and many people practice Kendo until they’re dead.
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Mm3CmNE72Bw

>Is Kendo a martial art or a sport?
Yes.

>Where can I find a Kendo/Iaido club or dojo?
https://www.kendo-fik.org/organization/affiliate

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.

My Experience with Wing Chun
5ad78850-a587-45b9-ae63-da85b887f8bc
I took 4 classes of Wing Chun because I have an open mind and I'm willing to try just about try anything, and I must say my verdict is overwhelmingly negative.
First of all let me say that the school I trained at was about as legit you're gonna get in Wing Chun. They sparred, they competed in full-contact Wing Chun tournaments, I even heard they sometimes cross train with Kyokushin guys that train in the same building. None of that is particularly impressive compared to kickboxing/MMA gyms that are actually churning out proven in-the-ring fighters, but by Wing Chun standards I doubt something more legitimate exists.

I'll detail my experiences in the following posts.

I'm getting /fit/ for the first time in my life and want to have fun with some sports. Among others I'm considering boxing cause it looks fun and practical for self defence. However my reaction time is miserable. Somehow while I fail at the human benchmark test I'm really good at vidya that require reflexes, probably because when it comes to real life applications of my reaction time I can read my opponents really well. Still, in box it seems like the first thing you learn is how to not telegraph your punches so that your opponent relies purely on his reaction time. Before I go down the rabbit-hole of learning about the nervous system and reaction times perhaps someone here already knows something about improving your nervous system. I suffered from severe depression most of my life and childhood which might have damaged my reaction time. Anyone knows if you can undo the damage with perhaps some diet/supplementation, regiment or medicine?

/cg/ - Climbing General #7
OrianeBertone02
Tomboy summer edition

>Should I start climbing?
Yes. Get a friend, find your closest gym, go there and rent some shoes. Start with bouldering. Usually two colored tape-marks set the start of the route and the color of the tape is difficulty. Route is the same-colored grips up until the topmost grip (not edge of wall). There's usually a difficulty chart around the gym somewhere. Two hands on the last grip = you've sent it, congratulations.

>How do I start toproping?
You have to learn how to belay. Almost every climbing gym has toproping courses if they have toprope walls. Same grip-color system as with the bouldering, but here it's more common with each route having a specific grade instead of being within a range of grades. The grading system differs internationally and for style see here for more info: https://www.sportrock.com/post/understanding-climbing-grades
