Yeah. Bikes are a fashion accessory first and foremost. No real rider would be caught dead with last year's model, let alone something older than that. For me, I prefer the Hollywood style: Ride once and discard.

It’s… half internally routed? Just the shock lockout? No there’s another cable going in, no dropper so the brake? But why internally route the brake and not the derailleur?
I came to say external routing is based and internal routing sux, but this is a clusterfuck, and it goes under the BB, I can’t endorse this either

I don't think this is totally right, some people just prefer the nimbleness of 27.5, doesn't nessecarily mean they are only for jumps and tricks.

Do you think krav maga would work against a somewhat experienced martial artists? Everytime i hear someone talk about krav maga they praise it to be the "ultimate martial art" or "this isn't a sport it's for self defense." not trying to bad mouth it but i think it wouldn't be as practical as boxing for self defense since you can't really pressure test eye pokes or groin shots let alone expect someone to go down from that alone

Stop falling for fucking memes and do what martial arts are actually available. The “non-sport but super better than everything else” you hear about on here are so fucking niche that no one does them and the people that do aren’t getting the same quality of training that an Olympic dojo is getting. This boards obsession with niche martial arts that are supposedly superior is due to the fact that most people here don’t actually train.

I took boxing for a few months a couple years back when I was 18 or so. Loved it, wanted to get into sparring so bad (did spar a couple times a year or two later with friends), but life happened, school, job, the gym was a bit too far and I didn't have a car, etc. Now that I'm a grown-ass man, I've been wanting to go back, but I always heard about the "Boxing + BJJ" meme browsing here and wherever else. Not only am I a big Brazilaboo, but I just really enjoy combat sports and fighting other dudes who also wanna fight you in a controlled environment. I think it's fun and it's nice to have a physical skill that satiates a sense of accomplishment through hard work. Therefore, BJJ sounds like an awesome fit to me, and I guess it's been getting popular over the last few years. What's some beginner advice/resources? Any exercises or anything that would prepare me? I really wanna get into it.

Depends you're not going to be a world class champion but statistically you wouldn't have been even if you started when you are 8. Imagine it can help you stay in shape if you are focused can be a black belt in your 40s.

Yes. I was about to give up and take American kickboxing because I didn’t have full contact karate near me. I moved to a new place recently and got exited to see a kyokushin place within driving distance. I’d settle for Muay Thai if I had to but karate is my favorite martial art.

Question
Why would our muscles evolve to tense up in fight or flight when we fight better when our muscles are relaxed?
>>
Anyone got Craig Jones power ride or power top?
>>
>>97125
Because the monkeys we evolved from were too retarded to come up with efficient systems of combat, for them just going tard rage and using all your strength is the best option. Humans have not been around long enough nor been evolutionarily selected to develope anything different.
>>
>>97125
Muscles tense up because it makes your hand stand on end and that makes you look bigger to intimidate your opponent.

Repeat something 10,000 times and turn your body into a weapon.

The greatest style of boxing is catch-n-shoot.
The greatest defence is angling and slipping.
The greatest mental victory is being unreadable. Feign.

Hey I've been boxing in a gym for 2 days now. When are my shoulders gonna start feeling loose? Where should I throw my punches from, when I throw a good one i feel it come from my lat muscle is that correct?

Hips and shoulders.thats how you knock people out.also mentality is crucial. When you are going for a ko you have to be thinking I am going to murder or disfigure the deude in front of me.

murder thoughts on the bag isn't weird is it?

No. The bag is expressively meant to hone your aggression with proper form. That's why all the old school coaches focused on bag work and held that shit. They could feel whether you meant it or not.

If you contact the seller for a swap don't switch anything out, and for the love of god don't take them outside unless you like voiding your right to return. If you can't be bothered to do that, getting a replacement strap is chump change. Velcro sucks, so I wouldn't bother if I were you desu.

>>97306
I already have like 3 and a half hours of skating in them. They aren't impossible to get on, just way too much effort for me to feel comfortable doing it every time. I just went ahead and ordered an extra set of straps and I'll just keep the replacement straps they send in (if they decide to do so) as a spare.
>>
how do i stop on these rollybois
>>
>>97384
Do you have a brake on them? Start out by learning to stop with that. After that learn speed control so you can actually slow down to some degree before stopping. And then learn T-Stops and then powerslides quickly after that.
