You want a smart charger so you can balance charge and discharge the batteries to storage voltage after use (3.7-3.8 per cell so 11.1 for you). Don't leave the batteries fully charged for more than a few days as they will bloat. Don't leave them undercharged as they will stop charging.

Why dont we see more liver shots in MMA?

They can be devastating and ko in 1 hit yet they are barely used in MMA.

bas rutten owned the liver shot so hard that everyone else is scared of using it for fear of being compared to him

>>52902
Daniel Cormier knows a little bit of "dirty boxing" and he could've used a liver shot. It's basically fighting close, pulling his opponents head down or clinching and delivering a quick hook or uppercut. He did it in the 1st Stipe fight.
>>
Unless you're a really good wrestler getting that close in MMA is sketchy business.
>>
>>52882
the meta right now in MMA punishes body blows. Most body shots are from southpaw strikes (fighter's left hands, knees and kicks being directly in line with their opponent's liver which is on the right side)

If i recall correctly most fighters are right handed with only maybe 15% being southpaw, and that is maybe stretched out with right handed people fighting southpaw, so they're not truly coordinated to use their left side.


So with that in mind most MMA fighters prefer a more square stance that aides with boxing and wrestling, so they aren't as staggered or bladed with one side exposed compared to their other side. In kick boxing and striking sports you see fighters more bladed with their stance since they dont have to brace to get takedown or grappled with.


Last point over the last 4 years calf kicks and leg kicks have been the prefer outside strike, it makes fighters weary to swim in get kicked in the leg and hit the body, by the time they get the timing or within the middle range of landing body blows, their opponent has hit them with several leg kicks which has hampered their power and mobility
>>
>>52882
MMA meta depends on region

NA? Train for wrestlers and develop a "technical" boxing game. Most MMA fighters can't even check hook.
Europe? Train kickboxing/karate and make sure you're not easily submitted. Better combos, still headhunting.
Asia? Train for MT and kicks, drill some basic ground game. Lighter weights favor speed. Punchers are their own breed.

You are never to fat or old to skate on a healthy diet of concrete and pain.

Skateboarding is 90% Mental, 10% Physical

Beginner Tip: Sometimes the sesh doesnt really start till you eat some shit
Trick Tip: Just commit faggot

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.

Battleship but both players are connected to an electric shock system. The voltage is turned up for attacks on larger ships, and sinking a ship causes 2-5 straight seconds of shock, with larger increased with bigger ships. When all the ships are sunk, the loser is shocked for 7-10 seconds straight

>What is bouldering?
Bouldering is a form of free climbing that is performed on small rock formations, boulders or artificial rock walls without the use of ropes or harnesses. Climbing shoes and a crash pad are usually the minimum equipment needed. Other styles of rock climbing (Sport, Trad) use various forms of protective equipment while climbing.

The lengthy patterns representing a theoretical fighting scenario are relatively new and were something of a practical compromise made by the people who modernized and transmitted karate out of Okinawa. It was a way to collate and perpetuate all of the moves that were being trained and minimize their being forgotten. Others, like the pinan/heian series, were basic drills one step above kihon intended to acclimate novices and children.

Before modern karate appeared circa the 1920s, a "kata" wasn't much different from a combo or a drill. The man credited with salvaging Okinawan kobudo, Taira Shinken, had a jocular personality and was fond of boasting something like "I know 300 kata!" It was technically true, but the overwhelming majority of those kata were between two and four steps long. He and the karateka like shito-ryu founder Kenwa Mebuni created many longer kata by linking up smaller kata with a common scenario theme.

I signed up for Gracie Barra like a fool, and had to move suddenly. Now they're saying my card will be charged for 60 days (400 fucking dollars), which could be lowered to 30 days but I don't have easy proof of where I'm moving.
Is it illegal for me to just block transactions on that card? I'm beyond frustrated with this place, $1000 down the fucking drain

does anyone have knowledge or experience in this?
should i lift at all doing muay thai or should i focus more on high volume calisthenics and cardio? not experienced by any means (less than a year doing MT)

i want to get better at fighting but also be a bit bigger still, i don't want to lift and bulk like a powerlifter or anything but i'm not sure if this is completely counterproductive or to both and impossible or still reasonable and not hold you back if you aren't planning on competing in MT

i'd probably do 3 days a week of MT.

They built muscles by repeatedly using the moves necessary for the sport for several hours a day. That guy is right about 3 days being nothing - OP is better off repeating basic punches and kicks, lifting for strength/physique and doing cardio to increase endurance. Perhaps you can get some sparring privately to improve your fighting, but everything beyond is simply a waste. Once you improve in these things, you will figure out what you like most and can set your priorities.
