/xs/ is a place to discuss all types of extreme sports and similar physical activities, which include (but are not limited to) skydiving, surfing, skateboarding, snowboarding, climbing, rafting, bungee-jumping, parkour, BMX & mountain biking, airsoft, paintball, etc.

Itt we talk about boxing techniques, ask questions about boxing techniques and share boxing tips.

I've recently found this video and I have a question. Should we really be so desperate to hit the jaw? After all, you can also land your hook on the temple.

Also, where to land straight punches in self defence? Jaw is the most obvious target in a ring but I'm nowhere near as strong as pro boxers (yet) and I think I can do some damage to nose and incisors with less power than to jaw.

Hey guys, really fucking new to this.
getting my first kit, ordering 16oz velcro gloves, and RDX inners.
Is this fine for a beginner's "jack of all trades" glove, or do I need specialisation sooner?

Also, what other kit do I need? My gym has all the pads and bags in the world.
im brand new, i just had my first bag session, my knuckles were fucked and were about to bleed so I went to the equipment desk and bought wraps and gloves (uni rec center with heavy bags room). How do I practice, I was just doing left and right jabs to the bag the entire time. I dont even know where to go for info on how to train properly. Also I lift a lot and my shoulders were aboslutely on fire
The only place I can recc is youtube "boxing drills".
Repeat and iterate drills over and over.
Sounds Iike you need to do more sparring and defensive drills

That looks more ceremonial, though. You could plausibly read the old ones without binoculars.
Of course it's "ceremonial," the printing press, print media, and the Internet have long moved Japan past the era of people having to look at the wooden board to see which rikishi are competing and at what rank. But it still exists in some fashion, like most other traditional holdovers.
That's really cool, thank you anon. Tens of thousands of copies all by hand, wow.

What are your favourite Combat Sports/ Martial Arts-related bullshit excuses that you hear in sparring?
Mine is
>roll with someone
>have him in a precarious position
>fag starts "teaching" how to finish the submission aka prattling.
It is sly and the inexperienced practitioner may see it as benevolence. I hate this shit but I always laugh when some cunt is trying to pull that off. Ace-tier excuse.

>Teaching from bottom is an excuse.
Just because you got the dude down doesn't mean you've got the submission.
Either you're worse at submissions than grappling, or they're harder to submit then take down.
Sometimes, they're better at defending. Sometimes, some submissions just don't work on people, because they don't move right or react right.
>T. BJJ white belt who's lanky, flexible, high pain threshold, who's spent a full five minutes on his back on multiple occasions, while a black belt or brown belt tries to submit me.

Now a real excuse is flipping between not taking it seriously, and going super hard.
Going light, playing around, slap-boxing, barely engaging, and when the other person gets their measure and begins to get control, stepping off, looking away, and acting disinterested in continuing, so your sparring partner can't pursue without looking like an opportunistic dick.
The round doesn't stop just because you got tired, or you're no longer winning. Put your hands up, stand and fight.
They're probably referring to a long term chronic injury anon. You have to train around those.
If you stick to training long enough you will understand them
Fucking white belts
I feel like I need to point out that sparing isn't a competition, however I do get tired of the constant excuses of smokers who think they can keep smoking while being martial artist.

>*Huff puff* It must be the humidity
>*Wheeze* news said there's a lot of pollen in the air
>*Hacking cough* wow that leg kick really knocked the wind out of me
>*Gasp* I should have eaten a better breakfast
If you want decent cardio quit smoking. It's a bad example for the kids and exactly the reason a chubby dude like myself can out pace you for round after round after round despite endurance not being a strong suit of mine.
It’s funny that you think that, white belt.

>Should I start climbing?
Yes. It's a good workout, and it satisfies the instinctual part of you that always asks "I wonder if I could get on top of that?". Find a climbing gym near you and give it a go. Focus on bouldering at first. Going alone is perfectly fine.

>How do I start toproping?
You have to learn how to belay. Almost every climbing gym has toproping courses if they have toprope walls. You will also need a belay partner--this is easier to find than you think. Just chat with other boulderers or approach someone alone on the auto-belay.

>How do I start bouldering outside?
Buy a crash pad and look for nearby boulders on mountainproject (or your regional equivalent). Don't be stupid and always have a descent plan. Prepare to be humbled.

so i skateboard for quite some years now, and i would like to know if anyone who also skates here, about the progress rate on learning new flip tricks, does it really takes so long to learn a new trick any feedback would be great

all those years i've trained on flat on goofy stance i only got like
>ollie, 180 frontside, pop/shove it and kickflip and easier tricks
>double kickflip and i landed one time an heelflip and a 360 shove it with toe drag and some slappy 50-50 grind that are quite harder

and only that for like almost more than 3/4 years of skating should i just stop skating for good and sell it to invest in another sport like even there is some tricks like shove it and 360 shove it that when the shape gets to the shin gets swollen up
1 reply omitted. Click here to view.
took me 3 months to land a kickflip. but also i skate bowl more, maybe become a bowl skater anon. its actually safer in most cases if you know how to drop in
some people learn things at different rates.
i've known guys who never even learned to ollie but carve bowls and roll in on oververt like it's nothing.
tech stuff & rails came pretty naturally to me but i couldn't even drop in until i was 20 and only now 10 years later i'm actually getting semi comfortable on tranny.

been skating going on 3 years since starting late 2019 n i can do almost all basic tricks, ollie, shuvits, variants of shuvits, and most flip tricks including kickflips, heelflips, treflips, and hard flips. all both switch and regular (except tres hardflips and heel flips switch, shits impossible you're a genetic mutated freak if you can do that shit). im stuck on heelflips switch but whenever i get hard-stuck on learning a trick i just immediately start learning tricks i've learned regular, switch. it helps with getting better on both stances which makes balance overall better and muscle memory adapt easier

also if you're going for solely "getting good at skating" it's a bad approach, i'd legit get fried to oblivion smoke 2 blunts w some friends and slam a bottle of vodka while skating for 8h straight with the boys. if no one skates that you're friends with just crank out a dab rig w anyone over the age of 18 at a skatepark and youll spawn a whole new crew of buds to skate with

tl;dr; treat skating as a social gathering with the lads and just have a good time but dont get complacent with doing the same repetitive things daily, always keep learning

hope my blogpost helps
>switch heel
this helped me a lot with switch & nollie heels

What the fuck bros? There's no /scuba/ general?

Let's rectify that.

Best dive sites? Hairy or funny stories?

And the obvious question, what's better? PADI or SDI?

Tahiti's fun
Splish splash
What other, less difficult to get into, dive job are there? And how would I get into any of these jobs without any military experience? I'm a open water diver with a SSI deep certification and 95 dives, diving is the only thing I enjoy that I've gotten into that hasn't been forced onto me or done to please others
This is Mexico? I thought dugongs were only around in Melanesia
Where's this?
Guanacaste, Costa Rica. Great people and country
Technicly not scuba but still diving
I've done more than a bit of snorkeling during vacations as well as going deeper down.
Now I want to try it a little more serious and stay down longer with some attempts at apnoe diving.
What kind of ballast would be best?
Looking around I've found two styles that would make sense:
1. Neck mounted "pillow" style filled with lead bbs
2. Waist mounted solid pieces on a belt

Now I want to practice a bit in a pool first before I dare diving in the sea.
What would be a better choice?
Also I've heard these pillow style things can leak lead, do they even still use actual lead in these things?

Why is this board so obsessed with judo while most MMA fighters don't care about this art and use folkstyle or freestyle wrestling takedowns?

All those techniques were already in Catch, in fact Kano probably stole some from the westerners.
It worked for Bas Rutten (somewhat).
What the fuck are you smoking? Bas has a shitload of martial arts experience he didn’t just “figure stuff out”
I might be talking out of my ass, but I remember hearing that Bas didn't really train grappling until after he lost to Funaki, but then he went to specifically train with grapplers to learn (I want to say with Funaki but I might be wrong).
He mentions his grappling training in his personal commentaries on his fights, it's available on YouTube somewhere. He apparently had to figure out a lot of it in the ring because his fight schedule was so packed in his early days. He didn't get to seriously train grappling until a while in. You can see in his early fights that he only really knows how to guillotine and gets taken down at will. Bas had an usual ability to land kill shots as he was being taken down though, which is what saved him. His biggest defeats were always against good grapplers. Unless you've got Bas striking power I wouldn't recommend emulating him.

strava heatmaps, word of mouth or just wandering around in the woods. If you know the general area where they are at its not that hard to find them just walk up every trail you see. The past time I went riding in an area with some unsanctioned trails I just was going along a fire road, I saw a trail without any marking that wasn't on any map and then just walked up it. I guess someone made it a strava segment with the title "you shouldn't be here" So yeah I'm going to not use strava the next time I go ride it. Its clearly a mtb trail because of the berms on it though.
>How did you discover/get into /MTB/?

do these mudguards actually do anything? Saddle bag brand?

>Speaking of unsanctioned trails, how do you go about finding them?
Talk to people at bike parks and on the sanctioned trails, or find some well hidden area to build some. The builders of these trails generally want to keep them a secret because randoms might injure themselves on them, or snitch. This might not be as much of an issue elsewhere, but the culture and laws around here are intolerant to larger trail features and rogue building. You can find some of em with heatmaps as other anons have said, but this doesn't work for ones that are well hidden.
The mudguards help but I needed bigger ones for how sloppy it was that day. Bigger messes need bigger mudguards. The saddlebag is from PNW Components. It's a good bag that works with dropper posts but I took it off because my rear tire buzzed it every time I did a big compression with the dropper down. I've since replaced the saddlebag with a frame strap

Nice anon, only tried fletching myself, rather satisfying. I'd recommend looking up Richard Head on youtube, they're a father-son duo of Bowyering and fletching. They have some good guides on there.
I know right, took me forever to find this, would've expected it on /k/ or /out/
Well done, lad. This looks great
That's really good man. You got any WIP images or a guide that you followed?

Grouping left is normal for a Med-draw bow, you need to either get better spined arrows, or aim off.
