>I'm tempted to try running a faster rolling tire in the rear that's an xc/trail tire but I don't want to find out I needed more grip after I crashed
I had x king tires on my gt then switched to hellkat kenda 2.4 I notice a little bit more drag but that's what you said, i'd rather have a bit less speed and more drag and way more grip and being safer.

>I was running a continental de baron on the front
That's the next tire i was thinking of having after using mine, i'd use both front and rear though

Great day mountain biking at the birthplace of MTB. Fuck I love these techy climbs at Camp Tamarancho.
What happens if I refold tyres to store them for the winter and leave them like that until I need them again on late spring? Will the beads, the rubber and the carcass be damaged by spending all that time folded? I imagine that a similar amount of time goes on from the moment they are packed until they are installed on a bike, but I want to know if anyone has had any negative experiences with this issue in particular.

Opinions on the Vittoria Syerra tire? Vittoria is going hard with the "downcountry" marketing on it but it's just their existing Agarro trail/enduro tire but lighter and faster rolling with smaller knobs. I'm considering putting it on my EVIL Following when I wear through the DHF/DHR tires on it since most of my riding is climbing. The Agarro seems to perform well on rocks and roots but the trails here get so beat up in the summer that it's possible the knobs are too short to penetrate the dust on some climbs
Fuck it needs to stop snowing. The trails keep almost drying out and then we get another few inches

After seeing a greentext about a guy shooting kids playing in their backyard with a airsoft, I started shooting the morning walkers, joggers from my room and it was a good practice since I got 12 confirmed kills on moving targets, but this morning a guy might have spotted me, I quickly lay down after saw him looking at my direction, can I get sued as long as i'm not shooting them in the eyes?
I saw you this morning you little bastard that hurt like a mother fucker. The police were are looking into it before I even called them. You are fucked.

We all know stories about how martial arts amsters get punked in street fights, how olympic athletes in wrestling, boxing and judo get smoked on the streets, and at the same time, how criminals train in the exact same martial arts that have been proven ineffective by these cases.

Why is this? Here's my theory: Basically, those masters and champions are specialized for the ring and the mat, that's why they lose against someone specialized for the street. Like a football player sucking at rugby - similar sports but different enough. Or think about Mayweather in a street fight: His style is made to exploit boxing rules, he wouldn't last long in a real altercation-
OTOH, The guys who are good with martial arts on the streets are those who are not overspecialized.
Thus, IMO, the most dangerous opponent in a real fight is into combat sports, but just a local champion at best, known for dirty fighting, with a penchant for street fights and violence. His lack of specialization for the ring may hurt his prospects in his sport though.

That is ridiculously stupid especially if you have a height or weight disadvantage. You might win a bar fight against some drunk but that just stifles your own offense.
Hockey fights take place on ice, they need to grab for balance
Martial artists CAN defeat an untrained street fighter, but they need to be able to overcome the freeze of being in real danger, and the only way to do that is to fight. The black belt might get fucked up a few times irl, but once they get the hang of it, they're golden
It all really depends on innumerable variables. Training, conditioning, strength, tenacity, tactics, environment, luck, all these play a role. Is this a "for honor" kind of fight? Are we throwing gravel in the eyes and going for the quick groin shot? Does he have a knife? Do you? Guns? Are his friends there? Are yours? Is there a bouncer? Police? Bystanders? Concrete or bouncy castle? Too many variables.

The ideal street fighter is someone who trains heavily in MMA, has excellent stand up and also good takedown and submission defense, is in perfect shape, but has also been in real street fights and is going to fight dirty and brutally with a calm mind set. A rare specimen. Even then, this ideal fighter is subject to all of the above variables.

idk man try some moves
You aren’t required to have small wheels on your board my man. Maybe you should do some research on skate wheels or something because you are not going to be able to do shit on a longboard. What is your actual goal anyways? If you just wanna go fast and do ollies just get a zip zinger or something.
It would depend on the type of longboard you have. If you have one with drop through trucks, you probably aren't gonna be doing shit.
Your probably gonna have to get a big dancing longboard to do anything noteworthy, but even then, nobody is going to think your cool except for the gay koreans who longboard dance on instagram

lmao your fucking delusional
You'll go half the speed with double the effort and you have to pick up your board at every curb because longboard ollies are trash
t. ex downhill longboarder
yeah, I honestly don't know what he thinks he is going to accomplish trying to learn how to skate on a longboard. Like I said, I think the best choice he could make is simply learning how to ollie and the rest of the basic fundamentals of basic skating on a normal board, and just upgrade into one of those weird cruiser type boards people skate on these days with some 159s/139s depending on how wide his board is gonna be with some bearings that are going to keep him rolling smooth and some nice solid big wheels with a soft duro. all the "speed" of a longboard but you can actually pop up/down curbs, do mannys across shit, do 180s/kickflips/shove its over manholes, roll down some grass/dirt hills if he is feeling spicy ect.

So we know by now that in unarmed arts, full contact disciplines rule supreme.
What about armed encounters, with knives or sticks? Any data about those?
Russo-Japanese war was a mix of kendo and German fencing (Gunto jutsu or whatever), WW2 people used fencing, in Vietnam they used Escrima, police still use escrima etc. etc.
Then you got the lamb method nightstick, Piper system for knife etc. etc.

Realistically, people won't be using swords anymore. The weapon options today are knife, stick (Any kind of cudgel, telescope batons, right up to baseball bats), maybe machetes if you're really hardcore.

What do you think? What should we train to prepare for weapon against weapon fights?

Nakamura Taisaburo had lots of bad things to say about Kendo, but also Koryu and pretty much everyone doing something significantly different from what he was doing, yet he still held high ranks in Kendo and Jukendo, he just considered people who only did Kendo to be deficient in some areas. About the only people he seemed to respect were other military style swordsmen and undeniable badasses like Kunii Zenya, who was Koryu, in fact he was a kata purist in terms of sword training, but somewhat controversial in Koryu circles for his picking fights and calling people out.

I'm actually sympathetic to your point, but if we are going to look at the success of a system like Jigen ryu we also have to consider the success of so many styles that created curriculum heavily reliant on shinai keiko. Such styles were almost universal during the Boshin War and the street fighting that preceded it.

The whole idea of kendo as something completely separate from older training methods is something of a modern notion, originating in its role in the Education system pre-WWII. Most of the famous pre-war teachers had at least some training in the older schools.
I think that as much as he was a "stop liking what I don't like" contrarian, Nakamura Taizaburo's opinions are still interesting to process precisely because he participated in the whole thing. He did kendo and jukendo as you said, participated in the re-elaboration of the Gunto no soho in the 40s, he did some action himself in China, had talks with others who did, etc. He called a lot of people out, but incidentally, he also called himself out, describing his own stuff in the 1930s and 1940s as satsujinken... Between the whole dissing, there's still a self-reflection over the thing he did and the general cultural and martial system that made it possible, which is quite rare for Japan. His disses over iaido and kendo are at least interesting to read in terms of critically thinking over your own stuff. I wouldn't look at them as anything else than a devil's advocate to one's practice, regardless of his seriousness in the matter. Let's remind ourselves that this person is dead anyway, so there's no reason to be upset about his hard words.

>we also have to consider the success of so many styles that created curriculum heavily reliant on shinai keiko. Such styles were almost universal during the Boshin War and the street fighting that preceded it.
But as I said, Jigen-ryu comes itself from basically the OG of shinai-geiko (Shinkage-ryu through Taisha-ryu). I personally see Jigen-ryu as an early attempt to explore what I'd call "impact training" though it's vastly different than Shinkage-ryu fukuro shinai stuff. It's still sort of a divergence and indeed, the whole shinai-geiko craze of the later Edo-era was probably a straighter and more rational development. I wouldn't be as direct as to say that the curriculum of the bakumatsu-era koryu was "heavily reliant on shinai-geiko" because it invites the idea that the kata was made with shinai-geiko as an objective while I'd rather see shinai-geiko as an adjunct tool to improve beyond just kata-geiko.


I certainly don't want to imply that jigen-ryu are the only one who found the way. The Bakumatsu styles were certainly an effective development in themselves, I think that it's interesting to highlight pell-practice as another idea, considering that shinai-geiko is already something that is recognized through kendo and the whole validation of sparring in general (that can be sometimes considered as a training gospel but I digress).

>The whole idea of kendo as something completely separate from older training methods is something of a modern notion, originating in its role in the Education system pre-WWII. Most of the famous pre-war teachers had at least some training in the older schools.
Absolutely and when I talk of kendo it's precisely and only the modern discipline of the 20th century, kendo isn't shinai-geiko, those two should be thought as completely separate items. This is true incidentally for judo and jujutsu too which weren't separated strongly in the early 20th century. Still, kendo was considered by Imperial Japan as the "fencing of the future" that would superseded the older feudal styles. The way those old styles were taught was in the end, antithetical with the Imperial mindset and it's more like survival of the older ways rather than real blending. Looking at Tendo-ryu, Jikishinkage-ryu Naginatajutsu and the development of atarashii naginata would be interesting in that regard...
I find his writings interesting but for the most part more self-congratulatory than reflective. I agree though he has more grounds for his opinions than most keyboard warriors, having actually walked the walk.

Jigen ryu is related to Shinkage ryu but also other styles. They completely abandoned shinai training, which probably was not the same in early Shinkage ryu as what we see today. My understanding is that it was originally used to do Taryu Jiai is a safer manner than with bokken. Its at best an antecedent to the Edo period shinai keiko scene rather than the Sengoku era equivalent of it.

Interestingly Nakamura acknowledged Jigen ryu as better than most koryu because of its striking practice, but still considered it inferior to his emphasis on tamashigiri.
Hema saber, cutless, arming sword and dagger, kendo, kali, bujikan, escrima all decent systems as long as you actively spar full strength.

I'm not RR if that's what you mean, our group is older than them but most of them don't play anymore unfortunately. The PKM actually belongs to an RR guy who left it with me when he joined the army and never came back to pick it up.

You're not wrong, it's increasingly less cost efficient to try and fix up this old shit, this is a conversation I had with the owner of the gun. Half of what I did was drill out stripped M3 set screws and replace them with M5s. Guess how many set screws an LCT or E&L has? But when you incrementally upgrade over the course of 12 years it's hard to look at that gun and say 'yeah just trash it.' It has a lot of quality parts that aren't made anymore. Problem is that it's now got shit from 20 different manufacturers, and some of them don't want to play together.
>The PKM actually belongs to an RR guy who left it with me when he joined the army and never came back to pick it up.
That's actually what prompted me to ask. The overwhelming majority of PKs in usage belong to RR guys.
Do they not make them anymore? I dropped a lot of dosh replacing the externals with real steel parts and upgrading the internals, the thing is a piece of shit though, honestly I wish the guy would come back and take it off my hands.
>Do they not make them anymore?
They're very expensive and absolute maintenance pigs. They take a skilled tech to keep running right.
Yeah, I'd let a 'skilled tech' deal with it for sure. I can take apart a standard V3 AK with my eyes closed, but this thing, god, it's expensive garbage inside and out.

i got housed once by a cheerleader in hs
Idk she physically got me decent enough to say that with a little training she could do some real damage but she wasn't throwing her weight enough so I just let her have at it then made fun of her outfit then she started crying. So I didn't feel so bad afterwards cause I like lost my ability to feel shame well before that by like seeing overdosed corpses and brutal street scenes. Idk if you're ever in a punk band you'd probably do the same to help make a little pit destroyer better at punching suburban kids in the head lmfao
can a non mma guy beat an mma girl in a sanctioned fight? no

can a non mma guy beat a mma girl in a fight to the death with no rules (lets think eye gouging etc) maybe? i dont know
Plenty of times. I started Judo as a little kid and there were high school girls that could easily toss me around.
When I started fencing in high school and joined my college's team, I lost a couple of bouts in small mixed tournaments to women my first year. by my 3rd year I was class A in epee and foil so I don't think I've lost to a woman in a serious bout since my 2nd year.
In chess: yes constantly when they're much stronger than me.

I don't really care about losing, I just enjoy playing the games I like playing.
a girl in my sambo class got me in an armbar and then another time she pinned me for ages and i really couldnt shift her off through bridging.
she had been doing it for 7 months and i had only gone for 1 so i guess she was way more experienced
she also she said no chokes which are pretty much the only things i know how to set up because ive seen them online

Nmonku has never won a decision, and Gane has never lost a round.

Great opinion, but he's a single-shot kind of fighter in Heavyweight. Shit's fucked.
After his last couple of performances at LHW I don't like Jon Jones' chances against tonight's winner going either direction.

/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 frisbee or disc will get you out and playing. Don't buy a starter set immediately, instead buy an innova skeeter 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 doesnt 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.

basically i pop it out on more hyzer but with less speed. kind of went from a james conrad type putt that’s pretty flat with some wobble to a paul mcbeth looking putt. like from a baseball pitch to a three point shot. i was around 50% outside the circle and 75% from 25-33 during practice. those 30 foot putts have been killing me for a long time lol. i’ve had more success from 35-40 than 28-33.

Bad stand-up gets you on the ground, the one who stomps you usually stands upright while doing so. The "street" doesn't award points - you get out and still function, or you don't.
I've seen a ton of street fights that end in classic mount and ground n pound. Also seen many slams on concrete that didn't even end the fight.

Imo the worst part of grappling on the street is getting jumped or on watchers stopping the sub because they think it's more dangerous.
>Imo the worst part of grappling on the street is getting jumped
Which is probably the most dangerous aspect of street grappling. Yes, you can bounce your head off the pavement on the way down, but some rando coming out of nowhere to curb stomp or shank you for touching his buddy is too much of a risk for me. If you’re going to learn a martial art for self defense I always advocate for boxing or Muay Thai since they incentivize you to maintain distance, clock the other dude in the face and run away.
