I'm wondering this too and there doesn't seem to be a good solution to it.
I am comfortable with snowboarding and going high speeds no problem. I got to try longboarding once and it seems more stable then normal skateboard but still felt really risky. You go high speed and hit a small pebble, it is all over.

Sabre rules focus a lot more on intention than other weapons.
>>
>>14231
The intentionally injurious part of it is what makes academic fencing seem kind of daft. Maybe there's a deeper satisfaction to it but the lack of movement and aiming for the unprotected face, just to accumulate some scars, what the fuck is going on there. I get that manhood rituals used to be dead common and a lot of them are injurious or painful but most of the world has left behind scarring young people for the sake of tradition.

I guess that's my question. What's the appeal? Why not normal fencing?

took saber classes at a local fencing club in philly to help my MMA game. ended up really fucking enjoying the sport.

That's the way. Just because you probably won't be your country's number one Olympic fencer doesn't mean it's not worth doing. That's like saying "I'll never be a powerlifter so I won't even try lifting weights at all."

any midwest people here? I used to go to Cascade in Wisconsin a lot since its wasn't a very far drive from Chicago and it was a pretty cool mt with a few terrain parks. There was another one in northern Michigan I went to a few times as a teenager was like a 7 hour drive but I can't remember the name of it for the life of me but it was probably the best I'd been at other than my few trips to CO.

the question should be why the fuck are you bothering to wear something that isn't impact rated.

The whole helmet shit is r/Longboarding circlejerking. If you are bombing a hill at 30mph; sure, a helmet is a good idea. If thou are skating flat at less than 10mph then you might as well wear one when you go for a jog.

Seeing these reddit fags wear helmets cruising on a pump track is just dumb.

I've been skating for over a year now and I still can't ollie. I don't have any friends and the retards at reddit can never help. Usually what happens is the board goes behind my back and it seems like I've tried everything to fix this but it still won't pop straight. Doing tricks looks so fun but it's so frustrating that I can't even do the foundation for nearly all modern skate tricks. I'm thinking about just getting a freestyle board and getting into that.

too much weight on your toes
practice backside kickturns with a focus on getting as much rotation out of a single one as you can. It will help you get used to putting your weight on your heels while lifting the nose/kicking the tail.

this is how I got friendly with everyone at the local skate shop. id always show up with some extra beer or shooters and offer em up to anyone and chill in the shop for a while. felt weird at first but now I just show up to the shop with a 12 pack like once a week and chill with the homies.

I'd say you need to adjust the positioning of your back foot. It's hard to say what you're doing wrong without being able to see you try. You should literally try 100s of times every day you can, it's best way to learn any trick.

>>14325
This guy may be right too.
Can you tic-tac op? You start stationary and and move your nose left to right and build up momentum. If not try learning that and shuv its (without popping) first.

I'm a kickboxer and joined because I wanted to get a better punching game to compensate my short reach, but honestly I think I'm better off training on my own. I started meeting with a friend to spar boxing in a park and I feel like is helping me more than that gym.

Yeah, but by the same logic boxing should have thread here as well. /sp/ is for spectators, the pro matches, the show. /xsp/ is for the art of boxing, the sportsmen, amateur or otherwise.

Why didn't team based MMA take off?
1v1 is basically a 'solved' sport. I think these types of match conditions would reinvigorate the scene and give us amazing matches as they start optimizing group unarmed combat.

It doesn't work for the same reason other people have mentioned. The moment one guy loses, it becomes 2v1, 3v1, and so on.

The best way to do a team format would be to do the format used in Quintet (which is similar to rules used in kosen judo). Two guys have a match. Once somebody wins, the next guy on the other team comes in to fight the winner right away. If it's a draw (if time runs out and nobody wins), both get eliminated and the next set of guys comes on. Whoever runs out of people on the team first loses.

There's also no individual weight limit, only a team limit. This adds to another layer of strategy. You could have a balanced team of medium guys, or have smaller guys fighting the other's big guy to purposely stalemate them and get their heavy hitter eliminated, etc.

Even if you're not interested in grappling, I still recommend Quintet. Because of the rules, people are highly encouraged to finish the other guy as quickly as possible. The refs are also quick to call and penalize stalling (arguably too quickly at times), so there's constant action.
