taking your sled out for a backcountry ride is the best way to enjoy winter

awesome, thanks for the tip. I'll start looking into that. I know the Indy XC 850 Adventure got hands down best sled of 2020 from Snowtrax TV, but I'm wondering if that also translates to the smaller engine models.
Only difference should be more power in the 850 so that difference will be the same for all brands and models

>What is HEMA?
HEMA stands for Historical European Martial Arts, sometimes also called Historical Fencing.
It's reconstructing how to fight with swords, daggers, polearms and other weapons based on old European fighting treatises

Also, the inward-turned weight shifty thing goes for Meyerites as well.
>As for why you've yet to see a good interpretation of it, it's mostly down to people not even trying and taking the easy way out by copying MOF footwork and whatnot.
I forgot to mention the most common thing, which is a near-complete absence of footwork practice.
So about footwork, how would you go about practicing it?
I believe it to be far more important in any activity because of how long it takes to get good at compared to what you learn with your arms.
What if you did other sports before hema, would they give you an advantage in footwork, if so which ones?
If you have a partner take turns mirroring eachothers footwork sticking strictly to proper movements.

If you don’t have a partner. Bounce a tennis ball against a wall and catch it to throw again. Moving closer and further away with proper form. If it ever goes wide lunge for it. Etc. Also do your footwork drills lower than you spar to build your strength.

which weapon would you like to see more of?
imo sickle would be pretty cool but there's only P.H.Mair
also dagger is extremely underrepresented for how important it was back then
Bayonet. Right up to mid 20th century.

Yeah it's not a majority of skaters who are chill, but it does seem to be a good 10-20%-ish. Found the same thing when I used to do 4WDing, 10-20% of people would go places and just trash the fuck out of it with parties and meth sessions and shit, so all the passes got closed off by parks eventually, most 4WD'ers respect the environment, but eventually parks has to close it off because 20% are self absorbed shitheads who don't give a shit doing illegal stuff.
It's only going to be a matter of time before the council cracks down on the skateparks here I think, skaters selling drugs to literal 13 year olds, smashing glass, fighting people walking their dogs and whatever in the park next to it, people drunk all the time. Shit sucks.

there's absolutely no way he doesn't
yeah it's a fucking bizarre choice of an opponent when the entire point was to show that Jake Paul was a legitimate fighter. he hasn't faced a single genuine boxer to date.

askren was a laughable striker and not someone your average person considers elite after his last UFC fight
Sure, but having obvious symptoms at such a young age is rare. Even guys who go on to develop horrible CTE symptoms often don't show them until a decade or two after their career is over.
damn i was completely wrong about askren at least having a chance at going some rounds into it. Dude's a career MMA fighter and dealt poorly with counterpunches and leaned into hits. Thought he would be better at distancing and not getting hit
hes roided up.

There are some styles of skates that "run big" Roces 5th Elements are like that.

pro tip: measuring your foot in cm is the best way to ensure a proper fit.

Hope you find some skates, my fellow bladerino
Montre is one of the best rollerbladers ever. This guy deserves to be paid as much as pro athletes from mainstream sports.
I'm not sure what you mean by "extreme" but the RB ruiser/110/whatever go up to 14, or there are the the FR skates that go up to 13.5 and with a thinner liner may fit 14. I feel your pain though, I too wear a size 14 and there isn't really much selection.
Lol, some dude came up to me in the skatepark and said he never skated rollerblades before and if he could try, I was like "yeah sure" and fuck man the way he moved was fucking nuts, he was so agile on the skates it was crazy.
After he left, another dude came up at the skatepark and was like, "Crazy that *insert name I forgot* used your skates, how do you feel?"
Turns out it was some NHL player.

what do you guys think of combining taekwondo and boxing for kickboxing. you get the hands of boxing and the kicks of tkd, they should mesh together well in theory, they share the bladed stance, the footwork, and the angles. the stance switching of tkd would come in handy too. i like the old american karate style kickboxing, but i think tkd is a better base for kicking
>why not just train kickboxing
idk, doesn't seem as cool. do you guys think it would be effective?
What is your goal? You want to compete in kickboxing? As an adult you probably wana just do the things you want to do. Building a strong base in particular areas is for kids that have decades to train.

god I wish they did that to me
>As an adult you probably wana just do the things you want to do

Very true, too many older guys, and by that I mean guys in their 20's, go into martial arts trying to brew up their own super special style. You are going to suck at this for a couple of years, probably more. Most fighters have backgrounds due to decisions their parents made and got involved in combat sports like MMA and kickboxing later on, usually for monetary reasons. Just jump straight into those things if that's what you want to do, the less time sunk into something with cross-over skills but not direct applicability the better.
Why do the guys in my BJJ practice clap my hands after practicing?
Like, hands as if praying, and I do the same, one hand inside one hand outside

Anyone else with a G&G arp9 having problems with bb feeding. I've tried both midcaps and high caps, and I'm having feeding troubles with both types. I'll try a drum once it comes in the mail.
At that point, it's probably not the magazines, but the gun itself. Could be the hop-up, nozzle, or tappet plate.
It's really good out of the box, BUT get it with warranty, as from time to time you get a badly shimmed one from the factory which will break gears and you want ASG to repair it for free.
>I mostly just want something that's not an AK or M4, doesn't bother me if many other people use it.

There are just too many options to pick from. Long gun or short? Bullpup or no? Need to reuse your existing AK/M4 mags? Etc...

As long as something isn't outright terrible, I think it's a decent choice. Minor fixes I can handle. Personally, I have an erection for bullpups, so I have a P90, and a FN2000 and AUG are on my short list.
Is it normal for an AEG to double feed once after reloading and then feed normally again? What are the consequences if this continues?

also, not saying Goju is a better choice per say but at that point you would be choosing between god tier conditioning and resilience or more self defense and bunkai, only do Goju if it has sparring thougb
and not point sparring
Love seeing stuff like that, but I am going to be honest, probably not something I would be eager to do.

Best male MMA fight vs best female MMA fight

Who'd win? And who would fight?
19 replies and 1 image omitted. Click here to view.
guess it depends if it is equal weight class, etc.. At 145 it'd be against Volkanovski who is a pretty big killer. the interesting thing, however, is that she would actually have a height advantage against him, but a reasonable reach disadvantage.

she has better grappling credentials, but volkanovski is very underrated imo (despite being champion). i think he'd win, but i bet it'd go at least 2 or 3 rounds. would be a good fight.
Yea, Yuki Nakai is one of Japan's most legit grapplers though. My only point was that gordeau is 6'5 and kicks like a mule. The idea that he'd lose to a woman is absurd, maybe Gabi Garcia, and that's still a maybe.
i have another good one, who would win in a wrestling match, henry cejudo or adeline grey?
Go on
nah, he's alright but not the goat
I'd have to say prime Fedor, and he could literally murder them.

/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.
