>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 value 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.

/cg/ - Climbing General
~~Highball 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 also a holistic sport and success often hinges upon many factors, not just strength and power. But it certainly helps.

>Where can I acquire petite 110lb Asian climbing gf.

Why should we have our weaker hand in front? Not that I'm complaining cause it actually feels natural for me but
Just why?
After all we punch with our forward hand more often than the rear hand so why not make these punches stronger, especially if you're a strong guy so knocking people out with a jab probably isn't impossible for you?

In 2005, I fucked Mike V on the train tracks behind a Ross Dress for Less. Man, his ass could grip. Real tight, not a hair on it, and a sphincter you could only dream of. I had fun at first. But he was so weirdly macho about it. He kept saying things like "thats right bitch, am I gonna make you nut?" and "fucking fag I bet you can't wait to bust in my fat hairy man ass hahaha faggot". I just ignored him and kept railing. He continued unironically calling me his bitch and a fag as he had several hands free prostate orgasms spilling seminal fluids onto the train tracks, getting more angry and dominant after each one. "Yea i bet you like dudes. You look like a pussy" he'd say "I cant even feel your limpdick bitch." I just kept clapping, wondering wtf is up with him. After about 20 minutes of railing Mike's boypussy, drenched in sweat and his cream, I finally got a nut off despite his constant berating and degrading comments. He immediately hopped off, laid flat on his back and bent his legs over his head so the cum dripped out of his asshole directly into his mouth. "The fuck you looking at? You like this gay boy?" He kept saying. After he got every last drop. He cackled like a rooster and punched me in the face as hard as he could. He nearly broke his hand, but I was fine. "Fucking fag" he said as he limped off into the sunset, shaking his wrist. That was the first and last time I fucked Mike V on the train tracks behind the Ross Dress for Less

Some say guard pulling is good cause you don't need to waste time on learning takedowns which aren't very useful at BJJ tournaments.
Others say guard pulling is actually a technical move, a part of BJJ and people should stop shitting on it.

But there is one thing that makes guard pulling an uncool move. It doesn't work in MMA, except for some specific situations on the ground. Of course, it's nothing special that different sports have different META but BJJ and MMA are like two sisters, both named Gracie.

/jsa/ Japanese Sword Arts General
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?

>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?

>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.

My close personal friend Paul McBeth 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.

/box/ general
Hello, I've been training since March, and while some months I've been more consistent with my training than others, I typically train at least 3-4 times a week. Recently, I had my third sparring session, and I have another one scheduled for tomorrow against someone from a different gym. I'd appreciate any tips you could offer. I wore a gray shirt during my last sparring session, and I'm aware that I didn't perform well. I struggled with ducking, clinching, and had little to no head movement, but was just feeling unusually tired and my throat was hot and the flow of air was so hot for some reason.

Here's the sparring, I am in the gray shirt. Slightly taller.

So let me get this straight, people who want to learn boxing/kickboxing/Muay Thai for self defense are told to go train those striking arts. People who aren’t stupid will ask, “will my brain get damaged over time from sparring?” Someone will say, “just spar light and don’t compete”. But then, you might ask, how useful is striking for self defense if you only spar light? The answer is usually “not very much” or “it’s great for getting in shape”. So, striking isn’t that effective for self-defense unless you’re sparring hard occasionally, in which case you’re gradually damaging your brain, even if it’s a small amount. Do you just accept you’ll have to spar hard occasionally for your striking to be effective for self-defense? Doesn’t seem very sustainable as you get older.

Choosing your stance for MMA
What stance do you use for your martial art? I've been going to a kickboxing (sanda) and MMA gym and they advised me to have my dominant hand forward so I've been training southpaw, but I've previously trained Jiu Jitsu in orthodox stance for a short time.
Generally in striking martial arts you keep your dominant hand back so your jab can set up your cross, but in other martial arts like Judo, Jeet Kune Do or Wrestling you're supposed to have your dominant hand forward, so which one should I train? I feel more comfortable as a southpaw personally.

Fight against bored
Any ideas on what can distract me from existance? Could be an extreme sport or eating carolina reapers while sitting in church.

I spent the last 7 years of my life diving into wingsuiting. Skydiving -> base -> wingsuit base. I have put housands of hours into this, extreme budgeting, living similar to a homeless person, all for wingsuits.

But I hit the point where progression is basically suicide and I decided to stop. Now that i have tried to stop I am becoming numb, apathetic for existance again.

Anyone have any ideas that are not explicitly air sports like paragliding, speed flying, skydiving or ws base? Could be a completly alternative method for flooding the brain with endorphins.

It's unbelievavable how pathetic UFC heavyweight is
>a light heavyweight legend several years past his prime bulked up to heavyweight by eating more McDonald's, beat the least terrible heavyweight fighter in 2 minutes and became the champ
>now he will smash a 41 yo former champion who's considered GOAT of the division even though he lost to a guy who would be a middleweight if he wasn't fat
>then he will retire and so should Stipe or he will end up like Silva
>so who will become the next champion? Gane who couldn't do anything against Jones besides a dickkick?
>the previous champ had the hardest punch in the world and not very much skills besides that
>he pissed Dana off to dodge Jones

Best Martial Art For Street Fights?
Now I know this might cause a lot of arguing but I genuinely am looking for the best martial art for street self defense.

I'm not looking for anything that's the best in a ruled zone like boxing, I need something that will work with no rules. I moved to a lower income (neighbor)HOOD but I live in Canada and we can't carry, so the next best thing is martial arts, plus I've always wanted to learn.

What's the most dangerous/best martial art for street fights? I'm honestly afraid of getting jumped by a crackhead. I know it's probably a mix of them so any information would help, I have a couple fighting gyms in my area and I plan on attending a orientation to one of them in the future.

People laugh at bridgerweight
But it actually makes more sense than all these weightclasses with "super" or "jewnior" in its names, none of which existed 70 years ago.
If heavyweight boxers will continue turning into mutants as fast as they've been doing it from Marciano to Fury, 10 years from now you'll see bridger in all promotions and 50 years from now you'll see an additional division at 250 lbs.

If early ufc still existed, it would be dominated by wrestlers and maybe also submission grapplers
Typical fight would probably look like this
>striking for a while
>someone gets taken down and catches the other one in guard
>the guy on top punches and headbutts the guy on bottom to wear him down
>after very long time the top guy passes the guard and submits the bottom guy or knock him out with punches and stomps

Bjj guys would survive this but they would need to learn how not to end up on the bottom or how to submit someone from bottom guard while getting headbutted.

Strikers would more doomed because they would need to learn how to grapple better than they can do it now because now they can just hold the grappler until the round ends. They would also need to learn how not to break their hands from bare knuckle punching like Gerard Gordeau.

But remember that biting and eye gouging were illegal in ufc 1. If we removed these 2 rules, they would either become unwritten rules because civilized humans just don't do it or the fights would be very short, ABSOLUTELY dominated by wrestlers and look more or less like this
>striking for a while
>someone gets taken down
>the guy on top submits the bottom guy with eye gouging

Horn saving fighters from submission or TKO
How would you solve this problem? Personally I would abolish breaks. To prevent infinite stalling, referee would tell fighters to stand up if there's no big ground and pound or sensible submission attempts on the ground for 2 minutes. I've also heard ideas not to stop the round if it seems like there's gonna be finish soon or to start a round from the same position the provious round ended in.

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

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.

How has martial arts become so focused on “street fights”?
Especially on the internet. You can hardly find any discussion of any martial art at all without a mention of how good it is on da streetz. I’ve noticed some of the same retards in car culture (da street races bro), but that just doesn’t fly with actual track drivers. Not the same way as it does with martial arts, at least. Why is it like this?

Imagine if every discussion around rowing was about how effective you would be as an oarsman in an ancient Greek trireme.

Complete knee blow out
I am 42. Decided to jump on a skateboard which should be relatively easy think to do. I just forgot I’m overweight and live pretty sedentary and have no business acting like I’m 25.

Pushed it out a bit on flat ground and hopped on. Saw like a flash, it was like a temporary loss of consciousness, I think shock from pain. Didn’t hit my head. Came to on ground in pain. Thought knee was sprained so I got up and it just collapsed again.

I have complete tear of ACL/ MCL and a Tibia plateau fracture with a segond fracture (some price kinda floating around). I see surgeon tomorrow. Anyone ever done anything this bad to their knee? How much trouble am I in here?

Why are mma weightclasses so misogynist?

Boxing, judo, bjj, taekwondo. All of these have weightclasses for large women. Only mma doesn't because most promotions seem to believe in a misogynist claim that women can't be both over 145 lbs and fit.

/mtb/ Mountain Bike General
Bike Park edition

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 value 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.

How to find the GOAT with Chael Sonnen
If you've never watched Sonnen vs Silva 1, Sonnen vs Silva 2, Sonnen vs Jones and Sonnen vs Fedor, watch it now.

Now, as you've watched these, you probably saw that
>Silva won the 1st fight in 5th round by a miracle
>Sivla won the 2nd fight in 2nd round after losing the 1st round
>Fedor won the fight in 1st round
>Jones not only won the fight in the 1st round but also humbled him so harshly I would commit seppuku after this fight if I were Cheal.
From this we can see that Jones>Fedor>>Silva>>>Sonnen. On the other hand, Jones was much younger than Sonnen, unlike Silva and Fedor. So who is actually the GOAT? Of course, it's GSP.

how do i convince my gf to train with me in kyokushin and maybe judo later on?

though i personally don't feel the need to train for self-defense as much anymore, my gf apparently has a stalker who's done some pretty nasty things to her, and has harassed her for the past 5 years. he lives in the same town as her, but so do i, so whenever i get the chance i accompany her when she runs errands and i always walk her back home.

but what if i can't? i won't be in town every day of the year. whereas i've had some spooky run-ins with chavs, she's been verbally, emotionally, and physically abused by this guy a bunch of times for the past half decade, so she stands to gain a lot more from martial arts training for self-defense than i do.

if it helps, she's a short, stocky northern english lass who can pick me up with ease (i'm a 6' caribbean mutt with relatively long limbs).

Wotore, a good idea broken by one rule
Wotore is a polish mma promotion with very specific rules:
>there are tournament fights and super fights
>winner of the tournament gets $12 000
>no gloves, just wraps
>no weightclasses
>no fence, falling out 2 times meant loss in the first tournament but since wotore 2, if you fall out, you just fall out
>first 2 rounds last for 5 minutes, third one has no time limit
Banned moves are:
>eye gouging
>clawing and pinching
>spitting at the opponent
>hair pulling
>groin strikes
>throat strikes
>fish hooking
>strikes to the spine and back of the head
>small joint manipulation
>any unsportsmanlike blah blah
As the organizers like to admitt, headbutts and ground kicks are legal.

Most of this sounds based but there's one rule that I strongly dislike:
>after 20 seconds of "inactive" groundfight ref tells fighters to stand up

Of course, if there's a round with no time limit, some kind of protection from stalling is necessary but first, 20 s is MUCH too little and second, the ref is retarded and thinks that g&p in full mount is inactive fight.

Why is "land of the free" like this?
There are MMA promotions all over the world. Some use the unified rules, some use stricter rules, some use more liberal rules, similar to Pride, some almost resemble early UFC. Every promotion decides for itself. On the other hand we have the USA where a boxing (sic) comission decides at what angle can MMA fighters elbow each other.

It's like troons. They exist all over the world but nobody cares about them except a few countries, including the USA, just like nobody cares when should fighters be allowed to knee each other in the head.
