/BJSUX/ BJJ Sucks General
Discuss how much this martial art sucks. It's totally useless for the streets. Just learn to wrestle or Judo so you don't end up on the ground on your back. Judo has standing submissions. It's boring as ass to watch.

It's gay as fuck and basically just simulated sex with another man. It's pointless except for fighting other Brazilian lady boys on a beach in Rio or in the cage. It's basically run as a combination of a cult and Ponzi scheme. All it's high level practitioners like Gordan Ryan are total cunts. Fuck this gay art man. K1 should have become the dominant martial art & combat sport not this shit.

Okay, so I'm still confused on the whole 'palm strike' thing. If palm strikes don't theoretically work as effectively as a punch. How come Bas was able to knock people out with them just as efficiently? Was it because he was technically using his wrist bone instead of his cupped palm which was more blunt and sturdy?

/cg/ - Climbing General #9
climbing perfection
Peak performance 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:

Do Fighters Wax?
For the fighters that don't just trim, but look almost smooth.
Do they usually wax? Or just take an electric razor to the lowest setting?

I'm trying to do this for the first time. With the electric razor, I am left with stubble everywhere. I tried hair removal cream but it kinda irritated me and I still see visible stubble even if smooth.

Do most fighters like picrel wax to get that look? I see no visible stubble or anything.
Just curious I'm sure the subject comes up a lot. I know the REASONS they shave. That's not my question. The question is how they shave basically.

Post pics of ads of shitbikes priced way too high
Post monstrosities that used be good bikes but were ruined by boomers

> 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, 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 are 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.

This is a handy guide for affordable bikes. Not comprehensive but a good guide for american riders. Europeans and Asians have access to other brands.

Sparring is easy
I can't believe how fucking easy sparring is. Literally just walk into them swinging as fast as possible with all of your weight and they can't do shit, it's like making someone fight the back of a UHAUL truck. I was sparring this 6'1, 39-year-old Muay Thai Marital Artist and all I did was just push into him while throwing over heads and occasional headbumps, elbows and sometimes a knee. It lasted all of it 4 minutes before we both kind of gassed and classed ended, but this has now forever cemented that sparring is incredibly easy. I've done plenty of other 'sparring' like Randori in Judo, but THIS has now made the impression that fighting is easy and it's 90% mental hesitation from pain.

/marble/ - Marble League and Marbula One General
Get comfy, pick your favorite marble team and root them on!

>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.

>What is Marbula One?
Marbula One is a marble racing tournament. The name is a portmanteau of the word "marble" and Formula One, the latter of which serves as the direct inspiration for the tournament. Unlike other race events or tournaments, the races are lap-based.

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.

When will retarded redditors admit that the only thing that really matters in a fight is physical size? Martial arts just let men win more quickly and efficiently against manlets who were going to lose anyway.

If you’re less than 6’ tall martial arts will only delay the inevitable and make you look like a tryhard who thinks that brain > brawn, and this line of thinking will get you killed IRL. Manlet self defense should emphasize kissing ass and accepting your role in the pecking order.

/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.

Sword/Blade Art MMA
Kendo vs Oly fencing vs HEMA vs Eskrima. Who wins and why?

I vote Oly fencing as it has the biggest talent pool and pressure testing due to being an Olympic sport.

Then Kendo as it is a well established art again with a large pressure tested talent pool.

Then Eskrima as in the Philippines at least in gets pressure testing by people actually killing each other with blades plus full contact competitions.

HEMA last as it's the newest so somewhat dorkiest and has yet to establish a widespread pressure testing format.

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.

>thought this was the best board to ask this, because any good thread on /b/ is drowned out.

What in general is the most effective martial art against boxing? Something that would be the best general defense against a boxing style of fighting. To keep it short why I'm asking, there's a party in a few days where we're having a kind of MMA match with gloves and headgear. Almost everyone there will probably expect me to fight this specific person spent a few months training in a boxing gym. They have a slugger style of boxing, relying on their heavy frame to take hits and to deal heavy hits. It will just be a friendly match.

I personally am not much of a fighter, especially not a striker. Any fight that I have gotten in, I rely primarily on submissions and joint locks to make them stop trying to beat the shit out of me. That is essentially my one and only strong suit. Any martial art that is particularly effective against boxing, or at least advice against a slugger type boxer? Any is appreciated.

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.

true man hands
how can I get Real hands using dumbells and barbells? both judo/BJJ fingers(using grips with the fingers? kettlbell-style while holding a couple of dumbells with the handles in an X shape?), and karate/kung-fu knuckles.
Besides being useful for my future labor job, a a fundamentalist catholic man, the hands are one of the few parts of the body I can show in public. So, yes, Id like to make the most of that.
>can I manipulate a heavy barbell in a way thats the same as Rowing?
>can I punch dumbells for lack of a makiwara? plus knuckles pushups

How would you train a bunch of guys if they had to compete in a weeks time, but have unlimited budget and facilties.
5 guys, some basic knowledge (near end of whitebelt level), but very fit/athletic.
Ruleset: 5m round, nogi, submissions/hold down wins fight, no lower body locks.
Thats not the situation I am in, but I am in a very similar one.

My plan:
>Train how not to get injured first (breakfalls, basic defensive position (tuck neck, etc))
>50% learning, 50% just rolling (either from standing or from positions that we were just learning in)
>Work backwards from finishing the fight;
>then hold-downs/dominant positions
>guard/turtle/other stalemate positions
>Standing takedowns/throws (may not get time)
>arm fighting/initiation (may not get time)
>do a single rehersal with proper format so they have the feeling of a real match with a referee enforcing rules, have someone record said match
>1-2 days before tournament, no real rolling, maybe some soft rolling but a lot of going through the recorded videos, showing more techniques, questions/answers, stretching/recovery, looking at what good fighters for each persons weight/height do (analyzing matches of real fighters)
>all training is done with warmup consisting of a lot of breakfalls and working on wrestling stance/step (as well as other normal shit like short runs)

anyone got any suggestions? anything retarded im doing?
and no I can't just roid them up.

The Ipl and its consequences have been a disaster for the Indian cricket They
have greatly increased the revenue of those , who play in that league , but
they have destabilized cricket have made life unfulfilling, have subjected human beings to
indignities, have led to widespread psychological suffering and have inflicted severe damage on the cricket world. The continued development of this type of league will worsen the situation. It will certainly subject human beings to greater indignities and inflict greater damage on the natural world, it will probably lead to greater social disruption and psychological suffering, and it may lead to increased physical suffering even in India..

Amateur Engineer Edition:

> 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, Kona, 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.

/marble/ - Marble League General
/sp/ is too fast for /marble/ during non-Marble League periods, so this could be the base for this extreme sporting event during most of the year

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.

What is the most barbaric fighting stance, art, or sport you can possibly think of? Something with barley any style whatsoever and if used in a real fight would just look insane and disgusting. Just bear-mauling levels of damage, shit that would make corners puke when they found the body of whoever tried to snatch your wallet. Just name whatever combination comes off your head.

I'm thinking Kudo but with a focus on eye gouges and biting, where specifically training for a greater biteforce will help more. Or capoeira but the object is to stick your hand down their throat like a feral dog. How about Karate but with an emphasis on grabbing the genitals and literally using all of your primate force to rip them apart.

Muay Thai gym closing, time for something new
My muay thai gym is closing at the end of the month :'(

I want to try something new, ive learned a bit of boxing, ive learned a bit of muay thai, now im thinking i may try a traditional martial art like kung fu or karate or even FMA. I like the idea of kyokushin sparring hard and bareknuckle but not punching the head, it seems like a good way to avoid CTE from aggressive sparring partners. There is a Jow ga kung fu school near me, i might learn a kung fu form just for the coolness factor.

Any recommendations on a new martial art to learn?

pic unrelated
I'm thinking of practicing a striking martial art (I have to decide whether it's taekwondo, muay thai, boxing, etc), but I'm a pussy and I worry about getting my teeth knocked out, I had some trouble with my gums in the past, but I would say it shouldn't be a problem now.
Would you recommend one martial art over other if I worry about stuff like this? Like, is Taekwondo less intense than Muay Thai, for example?
Either way I think I'll use at least a mouthpiece for sparring, maybe headgear to avoid cauliflower ears, idk. And I don't mind being the only one using them, but I think I would rather not be the only one. Are there some martial arts where people are more likely to use protective gear?

Minmax a fighter
Give a theoretical MMA fighter three martial arts.
Decide the martial arts to serve a single role as efficiently as possible.
Others point out the weaknesses, suggest combinations of martial arts that would be more efficient at serving the same role, and discuss what the fighters would be like practically.

Primarily grappling, the purpose is to counter and grapple the opponent rapidly and powerfully. Sitting guard and Seizo stances can be swapped between if one of the two stances is established too. I figure it'd work out like getting the opponent to the floor and delivering nasty followups that are hard to deal with.

Dojo choice
Moving to a new city soon and and want to learn a martial art there. Mostly joining for self-defence, fitness and fun. Can anyone help me decide? There's only four in the area:

Advanced Tactical Combat:
>Doesn't really say what martial art, get the impression it's basically just Krav Maga with a few extra bits
>Trainers seem well qualified, everyone has at least 10+ years experience in various martial arts, and experience teaching military/police
>Accredited by British Combat Association, OCFM and British KAPAP Association (dunno if these actually mean much?)
>Sound cool but not sure if they're legit or a mcdojo

>Biggest dojo in the area
>Offer Gi and No-Gi classes
>Owner has over 15 years experience, the head trainer has about 5. All of them are certified by Gracie Barra Europe
>Regularly send teams to tournaments, hold mini in house tournaments too
>Has a beginners class

>Not much info about their actual courses/team on the website, except that they teach kickboxing and recently refurbished their dojo
>Offer lessons three times a week, one of them is contact sparring
>Regularly send a team to compete at WKA and other tournaments, they also train the national team there
>Say beginners are welcomed to any of their classes

Muay Thai and MMA:
>Offer lessons in both, as well sparring in separate sessions
>Two trainers have over 10 years experience, are active amateur MMA fighters, have placed high in a couple of tournaments and regularly go to Thailand to train and fight
>Trained in boxing, muay thai, jiu jitsu, and judo
>They have MT a beginners course starting in January, 6 weeks, 2 lessons a week.

I'm leaning to the MT/MMA one at the moment, at least for the beginners course. Afterwards, I'll maybe keep doing MT and the BJJ depending on how much free time I have.

road trip extreme
THE DATE: Post cellphones, but pre self-driving-cars.

THE PLAN: The vehicle is packed, the destination is set, now you(ses) just have to get there.

THE HITCH: You have to get there without sleeping.

THE PUN: Intended.

What do you do? How far can you go before you will fall asleep? Will you use drugs to keep you awake? Keep in mind that local laws are still in effect, speeding rolls one D20(jk). Ignore time zones(no cheating).

IRL my furthest distance driving without sleep is 2,750ish miles(4425km). I nearly dosed off once but the bumpy line brought me right back just 400 miles from the destination. Crazy trip, I almost saw two truckers go into the ditch on that trip, one actually did.

Remember: its the last mile that counts.

You have one week to prepare for this journey. What's your strategy, driver?
