i always wondered how ville vallo felt about bam jacking his symbol and making millions off of it
They pay him to use it. Plus it made HIM more popular than it ever would have been without bam. Ville and bam are friends
Personally I agree. Bam made them more popular than they ever would’ve gotten on their own, so I feel like HIM has to like Bam. However I also feel like it’s more of a “This guy has a really weird obsession with us.. but hey he made us way more popular, so.. ehh sure why not?” relationship.
Ville was interviewed and the guy asked “Bam said this song is about him, is that true?”
Ville laughed and said Bam gives himself way too much credit. You can find it on YouTube.
Good. They were close friends for a while. I don't think they like each other any more. Ville is an alc and HIM broke up years ago and Bam doesn't use the logo any more.

>Judo uses throws: You don't actually want to hurt the other guy, so you throw him in a way that makes it possible to breakfall
>Wrestling uses slams: The mats are thick and soft so breakfalling is not necessary, so you slam. In a real fight, this would make it impossible to breakfall and break bones and joints, whatever hits the concrete first at full speed is destroyed.

tl;dr: In a brawl, use slams. Pic related would be a broken elbow, maybe broken shoulder and broken collarbone for the guy in red.

>Judo uses throws: You don't actually want to hurt the other guy, so you throw him in a way that makes it possible to breakfall
First off knowing how to fall doesn't mean that a throw won't hurt or that it'll magically remove the impact and strain of being thrown against a mat. Also you're assuming a rando on the street would know how to breakfall.
In a competition, people aren't looking to make sure you can breakfall when they throw you, they only want to win. When someone commits to a throw they are going to use all they've got to make sure it happens, period.

And "Slamming" your opponent is not some illegal thing in judo, not even close. Look up Ura nage and Yagura nage for example. Georgians, Russians, Uzbeks, etc love to do that shit. The difference is that according to the current ruleset you need to have a grip on your opponent beforehand. And these slams don't happen as often because of the gi and the grip fighting.

>tl;dr: In a brawl, use slams. Pic related would be a broken elbow, maybe broken shoulder and broken collarbone for the guy in red.
No, you online badass. Dropping someone on their head can leave them brain damaged or dead. You don't wanna go to jail, do you?
Wrestling mats are not "soft".
It's technique that keeps you and your opponent safe.
If I do a throw on a layman who doesn't know how to land they can absolutely can break shit.
Here is my subjective definition of stuff.

Trips- using your leg plus timing on their leg to cause them to fall

Takedowns - knock someone over but nether of you leave the ground

Throws- You pick the other person up somehow and toss them

Slams- similar to a throw only you intentionally land on top of them to finish the throw

Spikes- you intentionally modify a throw or slam so that the person being thrown has no choice but to take the throw full force on their head
Seriously. I've seen "mats" that might as well be a piece of tarp over concrete.
i have done wrestling shoulder throws and judo shoulder throws and i can tell you that its the exact sam fucking thing. also if youve ever seen the judo grand slams tourneys happeninf recently and watched the georgians or mongolians you would know that they absolutely do supplexes and body lock throws. we just call them ura nage or front uchimatas

Seems like it would also give knockdown karate styles an unfair advantage since point karate fighters won't have trained knees outside of non-competition training.


Exactly. It just become kickboxing in 6 oz gloves then and Muay Thai fighters can come in a dominate, then the sport dies as something for full-contact karate fighters, like happened with American Kickboxing.. Terrible terrible addition to the KC rules and I say that as a K1/Glory fan.
I am against adding knees but for adding low kicks.
They won't have trained the majority of the shit they do out of non-competition. They don't do low leg kicks in comp.
>Is this good for internal power/chi/ki?
Yep, it that's its purporse.
But I couldn't find a karate teacher who knows internal power and they explained it to me in vague terms. A stupid exercise of contraction and relaxation.
Since you are asking in 4chan the chances are you couldn't find a teacher either.
If you are interested in internal power look for a good taichi teacher.
Taichi and karate are totally different and yet they complement each other very well.
Should Karate guys (even with the so-called conditioning) use hand wraps?

How long would it take to become World Class at Judo if I started training Full Time now as a beginner?
As in 40 to 60 hours a week - I have the time to do it as a NEET
you'll never get there
Making it "fast" isn't the problem, age is. You could get a black belt relatively fast but olympic judokas will still have 10-20 years of intensive experience on you because they've been training since childhood. And to get to their skill level would take a lot more and by that time you'd become too old and slow for elite competition.
its narrow because we got cucked by the ijf and the olympic. judo had leg grabs and was essentially wrestling in the context of clothes (which i would argue is more useful than pure wrestling for irl confrontations) before it got cucked because people were using leg grabs to stall out, also because it was too similar to folkstyle.
regardless, i dont believe that knowing how to shoot bypasses striking entirely, shooting from a large distance is alot harder than you think, and maybe im just a shit wrestler but in my high school wrestling times ive never gotten a successful double leg. single legs are easy as fuck though from a russian tie.

but yeah, all judo has to do is loosen the rules on standup and let more time pass to allow for groundwork and i think it can be the ultimate grappling form in the context of clothes. sure we wont be as good in newaza as bjjfags, or as good as wrestling in nogi, but we will still be able to hold out our own

/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 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 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 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.

tfw freaked out by ticks after reading too much
I'm scared shitless of ticks and I've never seen one in my life or been bitten by one. I'm never leaving Alaska.
honestly, just practice the motion of throwing. There's a lot of good form review breakdowns of some of the best throwers. I think drew gibson's form is probably the best form the imitate, he doesn't have the limb length advantage of calvin, eagle, simon, AB, ganon buhr. So his form is maximally efficient to keep asup without the longer levers.

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.

she also has a little brother who fights in muay thai (his name is Shokun and his fight name used to be Rodtang after the famous one who was dating his sister. he had 50 fights by age 9 and won almost all of them. I'd imagine he has a different fight name these days since Rodtang and Stamp broke up though lol) who learned from their papa
so far i've only seen these two fights of his (Wisanlek is his name) but he gets brutally knocked out in both of them

Retreat is fine, as long as you fuck off somewhere they can't come after you. The point is not to turn your back on a thug who started shit with you. Fuck them up properly so they can't do anything to you, or get the fuck out of there safely. Don't humiliate them, let them go, and turn your back to them. That's just arrogant and asking to get fucked.

Is Wing Chun a good martial art? What are your thoughts??
60 replies and 6 images omitted. Click here to view.
I practice judo so my striking is nonexistent but, man if you ever come that close to me in a fight you basically did all the work for me. I feel like in a fight I have to go through hell and back to get my o goshi to work and go to the ground

In the Jeet Kune Do syllabus you use Wing Chun parrying and trapping to go into a basic standing submission from a kickboxing range. It's the one useful application I have seen of any Wing Chun techniques and even then it's only useful after being cross trained to the point it's not Wing Chun any more.

Weird art. Those Ip Man movies are responsible for a lot of people having an inflated opinion of their fighting abilities who are trained in it. Doesn't help its the primary Kung Fu style available in the West either.
>Wing Chun parrying and trapping to go into a basic standing submission from a kickboxing range

If you have video evidence then I'll shut up but this sounds like total horseshit. Standing submissions are so low percentage that they should never be your primary gameplan.

You're totally right. Our Jeet Kune Do instructor himself says 99% of your go to moves for any real self defence fight will be our boxing and kickboxing. The Wing Chun stuff in the JKD syllabus in his own words is just something we do for a bit of fun, and to use what we do in our kickboxing class for actual fighting.

Me saying the Wing Chun in the basic JKD syllabus is the one useful application of it, is like my personal opinion man. Even my own instructor says not to take it seriously and focus on standard boxing, kickboxing, wrestling, and BJJ techniques..
its very easy to determine the answer yourself about these sort of "its it effective" questions.

Karate/Judo Dogi represents most types of clothing pretty well and its more about uniform look than anything else really. Also the tradition is that its based on funeral wear, you are dressed and prepared for your own funeral in customs of Japanese schools that practice with the white Gi, meaning you are taking it that seriously.

IBJJF allows guard pulls and most of the big comps are under that ruleset.
I have a fetish for women wearing gi.
