ledge skating Edition

You're never too old/fat to skate, if you can jog you can skate.
Skateboarding is 70% style 20% bails, 10% landing. You're never too old to smoke out the 15-year-old girls at the park
Skatepark Etiquette: wax the coping
Trick Tip: cannonball: pop a fat ollie, grab the nose and tail, suck your knees your chest (your chin should be touching your dick), land
Beginner Tip: learn how to fall

thread question:

what ledge tricks are you working on?

Sounds like you have a ton of dipshit opinions.
Oh so you actually wanna read about what the evangelical faggot and other brain damaged high school drop outs have to say about society and politics and shit?
Sumner used to smoke crack with all of the Baker guys which makes this even funnier
All ex pros used to be degenerates which makes all the political posting much more embarrassing and hilarious. I dont know why they can't just get into woodworking or gardening or fucking motorcycles or fishing or literally anything else. I guess being an idiot on the internet is easier and gets your more attention.
Yeah it's cringe and very revealing of their hypocricy to build up on an image and actually distance themselves from someone who was living it more than they (Antwuan) to suddenly be hit with life's challenges. At least Dollin stays true. And that is not to say one can't or shouldn't distance themselves from drugs and partying. But when you make it a point that you are this carefree dude because you were smoking blunts or liked beer, for two years of your life, and build the image of your company around that, only to "realise" you had enough because you had a bad trip or one tooany hangovers, yeah dude, you are just a poseur. Brands like ...Lost or Consolidated or Flip had their share of hardcore users but they were never on the nose about it. Those who understood, understood.

Awesome cornering, feels the best.
Cool pic by the way.
I find cornering closer to the limit is easier when the conditions are crap, as all of the terrain is equally as slick. Right now all of my local trails are covered in slick leaves

Nope just manualing one after another seeing who could go the farthest. Maybe you know the bike rider he had a red jew fro and was overweight with a crew of freshman cigarettes smokers. They always shouted "save a tree ride a bike" even though they are at a skatepark. Why can't you ride on grass?

What's your favorite example of shitty martial arts beating more effective styles?
157 replies and 11 images omitted. Click here to view.

What a lot of MMA/UFC guys didn't realize is what happened to a lot of TMA is what's happening to BJJ and MT now.

You get a real martial art, that is effective, and it get's really popular. Money hungry assholes start marketing it to lazy/scared people as a "proven method of self defense" and they don't teach it in a realistic environment.

Aikido is a great example, as pointed out earlier: you were supposed to Judo first. Now you get people teaching just Aikido because earlier practitioners were really good and earned the reputation that Aikido is legit.

Same thing with Kajukenbo: it was a pressure tested system developed by actually fighting. Now you get mall sensei's piggy backing off that reputation, teaching weebs "self defense" that doesn't require them to be in shape.

Kung Fu and Karate too: originally it was practiced by the working class that were already fit to begin with. You teach someone that routinely lifts heavy shit how to punch and kick, and no shit they can kick someone's ass that has no training.

Hell Jeet Kune Do too: you look at Dan Inosanto and he advocated for BJJ and MT as far back as the 80s. Now you've got 3rd and 4th generation students that teach JKD as it's own art with an over emphasis on trapping and the silly parts of Filipino Martial Arts.
I invented a punch where I do this but it's more like the mortal draw from a sword. You spin, crouch down while doing a dodge and also preparing to spring yourself up. You use the centrifigual force and copy a "shot put throw"'s movements and throw your fucking entire fist into it, spring up and lunge forwards at the end to ensure a 100% knock out rate.

if you can land that shit lol good luck aiming
I get it. I never learnt any techniques, but through trials of fire I had to learn to get people off me when they jumped me, grappled or, or came at me in groups.
I rarely lost the fights and people stopped bothering me because I was a monster. Sometimes I miss the thrill of the fight.
the jannie here is retarded none of these posts deserved to be deleted kys
It was birthed through necessity, not selling snake oil. Of course with a history like that it's effective and covert. It hides the fact it's even a strike.

So what have you learned this week?
133 replies and 15 images omitted. Click here to view.
Bros I'm a blue belt and I've been training for about 3 years now. I've been reading about how your game only truly starts developing once you hit purple. At this point in my journey I am beggining to understand positions and situations more I think. What would some higher belts recommend for me to start getting into? I'm 178cm tall and I have 63 kilos. I've beeing doing half guard a lot for the last few months but honestly I suck at it as I don't sweep anyone from there and I can only finish from there, usually baiting a loop choke. I like De La Riva but I can only do 1 sweep consistently from it. What are some good guard for smaller guys? Also I fucked my lower back up by getting stack passed, how do I recover it because it is really stiff and not flexible as it was before the injury (I would say it is 35% flexible compared to how it was). Should I go for a massage with shock therapy or is that just a meme?

I was that retard, ever since posting it I started palm striking on the heavy bag. I fucked up my triquetrum/head on ulna the second time I went full retard on it. Wasn't able to move my hand without pain for 3-4 days, afterwards it healed. Focused more on technique, fucked it up again for a day because got cocky. Now I can go swinging with all my might and there is little to none pain on my palms because I learned how to strike with my radius. Still want to condition my knuckles but boy they hurt a lot more than when I palm strike.

>tl;dr don't be afraid to hit with full power but be sure you use your radius

>Bas was right
so if you have broken one of your fingers and someone attacks you do you just drop your pants and bend over?
Mind you, in spite of Shamrock's theatrics, he's gritting his teeth and protecting his head with all he's got against Rutten's blows.
Your qigong is striking hard things with an open palm softly at first. Then as the months pass and your hands get harder, you start hitting harder. And you keep doing this every day for a long time until your hands become a flail.

Theory 1:
>Fighting is unpredictable, violent and fast. Become as strong, fast and aggressive as possible, techniques won't save you.
>Examples: Ancient Greeks, medieval knights, WW1 German storm troopers

>Theory 2: Fighting frequently happens when you're injured, starving, tired or otherwise weakened, so you won't be able to fight with your optimal physique, while your enemy might be bigger and stronger than you. Therefore, train killing techniques to exploit weaknesses in the body's structure and counter physical superiority.
>Examples: WW2 allied commandos (eg. Fairbairn system), Baroque martial arts, most Asian martial arts

>Theory 3: You need effective techniques AND the most power and speed you can get to reach the highest level possible for you.
>Examples: Modern combat athletes, modern military combatives

Sorry for taking so long.
Started compiling what we have (ignoring things that reference other styles), into what I thought was something fairly ordered and useful for teaching. Thing is, I don't actually know much about formal ways to structure martial arts. I just use it to hit people.

Wasn't sure how to handle the weapons section, and didn't want to fuck around with figuring it out.

Anyway, knock yourselves out.
based now we just need someone to draw all the moves or to grab them off the interneet
shotput someone but use your fist instead of a ball and its a punch

HEMA stands for Historical European Martial Arts, sometimes also called Historical Fencing.

Wiktenauer is pretty shit for anything past early 17th century really.
Then again, that's still a pretty hefty load of sources and you can find them elsewhere, considering many groups that do smallsword specialize in it.

Comp is acrobatics edition

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

>How do I start toproping?
You have to learn how to belay. That same gym you just went to probably has reoccurring toprope courses which teach you how, it's not very difficult. 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, ask that guy at the gym who climbs without a shirt and moans obnoxiously loud for more info.

>I just bought a BeastMaker 2000™, will I finally git gud?
No. You'll just fuck up your ligaments. Google "Eva Lopez fingerboard".

indoor grades vary like crazy between gyms. like up to 3 grades of difference. go climb outdoors to really get a baseline.

If you are a beginner skater and over the age of 18 you are either:

A. a complete fucking loser
B. the parent of a young child who wants to learn to skate
C. both of the above
Guarantee that OP is 25 or under and said 28 to be extra sure that he isn't too old.
God damn dude. Can a guy not fuck around with wheels and pavement?
Skate, and you will regret it; don’t skate, you will also regret it; skate or don’t skate, you will regret it either way. Laugh at the world’s foolishness, you will regret it; weep over it, you will regret that too; laugh at the world’s foolishness or weep over it, you will regret both. Believe a woman, you will regret it; believe her not, you will also regret it… Hang yourself, you will regret it; do not hang yourself, and you will regret that too; hang yourself or don’t hang yourself, you’ll regret it either way; whether you hang yourself or do not hang yourself, you will regret both.
