Working against an untrained weakling should be the bare minimum. Why are you trying to exalt this floor of effectiveness as though it's something to proud of? It should work against untrained weaklings at a minimum, and it should also work against fully resisting trained athletes.

My point is that "exotic military uses X martial art" should not be considered an endorsement of that style or gym - because militaries don't care about producing competent hand-to-hand fighters.

You had a good kickboxing coach (and I mean this in the generic sense of punching & kicking someone trying to punch & kick you); congratulations. This "muh military use" aspect was how Krav Maga fraudsters sold their classes in the mid-200s and how TKD fraudsters sold it in the 80s and 90s.

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?"

The more time I spend in HEMA the more my interest for fencing and Kendo grow.

I think it's very based.

This is a very good watch.

>>38003
You should give it a try! The different cultural elements may be a bit jarring, but Kendo is an enriching activity that can be as competitive as you want it to be.

Mind the weebs, though, but they usually flake out after 2-3 months and take their beginner's zeal with them when they try HEMA and pretend they didn't have an obsession with the katana.

As far as Carlos Gracie and the very early days, it's nearly identical to mcdojos the world over. It's questionable whether Carlos ever even met Maeda.

i'll just paraphrase:

Humans started in Africa where they killed each other with their bare hands (a common pastime over there, even nowadays).

When they migrated to India they started thinking about hand-to-hand strategy.

Like a thousand years ago or something, some dude from India went to China much later on and shared this knowledge.

For the next few hundred years or so, the Chinese traded this shit with the Okinawans, who refined it into a practical, effective art.

In the 1920s, some Japanese dude brought the Okinawan shit to Japan and simplified it for the average man.

After WW2, some Korean dude took the Japanese version of the Okinawan shit, mixed it with some sand-nigger Kung Fu from Western China, and completely fucked it up into a very unsophisticated and brutish form of combat, (and included fancy kicks for some reason).

The psychological effect of colours on athletic performance is understudied but has been proven to exist.
Having aggressive colours like red in view improves your performance, having mellow passive colours like pale pinks and blues reduces it.
Boxing meta should be gloves that are red on the inside and pink on the outside, and you wear a pink leotard.

If that's the case, then shouldn't the guy wearing red lose more, because the opponent is the one seeing the red, hence him improving, whereas you don't see your own color, you see his color more than yours?

All things related to exploring and climbing abandoned and not-so-abandoned buildings.

READ THIS FIRST!!

Unless your idea of fun involves dying from internal bleeding in a pit underneath a caved in floor, always go with a partner. Provided you have one, urban exploration isn't actually all that dangerous. But make sure to take someone who isn't a pussy or a faggot, you know what I mean, alright?

ESSENTIAL GEAR:
PROPER CLOTHES (THIS IS FIRST AND IN ALL CAPS BECAUSE IT IS THE MOST IMPORTANT BY FAR! YES MORE IMPORTANT THAN FOOD AND WATER. WHY? YOU CAN'T DRINK WATER IF YOU'RE ALREADY FROZEN TO DEATH OR PASSED OUT FROM HEAT STROKE. BRING APPROPRIATE WEAR FOR THE WEATHER)

FOOD AND WATER (ALL CAPS BECAUSE ITS ALSO REALLY IMPORTANT. Bring AT LEAST 1 liter of water, but not too much because water is damn heavy)

Flashlight (There are a fuck ton of dark places that show up in places that people don't tend to go that often, so bring one AND A BACKUP ONE TRUST ME ON THIS) Headlamps are also cool and allow you to have your hands free.

Money - cash for emergencies.

also im not sure how much lube to put on spool valves. some ppl say very little and others say to make up for the extra space in the grooves where the orings go.
>>
>>37937
Check the valve o ring (big on in the middle that the bolt moves on). Take it off and clean it, relube then try again. If not check shockers website for trouble shooting. Usually if its a leak down the barrel its a valve o ring. Also shoot it a few times after lubing, doesnt need to shoot paintballs but dry firing it spreads the lube out and it sometimes fixed the issue.

Also on a different note does anyone know of anyone that makes neoprene tank bottle covers for 45/77 tanks? I hate the silicone ones and cbf taping up the ass end of my tank like the pros all do.

Should be a thin film on the ring but if extra collects on the side of the o rings then its fine. Just dont dump it all on.
Usually just getting a small dollop on your finger and running it a round the ring is more than enough. Should look something like this if 4chon doesnt compress the fuck out of the image. But this is after a few times the bolts cycled over it.
