Figured I'd ask here instead of being buried in /r/ again. Does anyone here have the 1999 (or 1997) broadcasts of the Winter X Games? Been looking everywhere and most I can find is short clips in picrel quality.

please tell me im not the only one who swears his name has always been Mike Valley

How come it didn't get past page 10?
This thread is too special
me on the right

There was this dude he hung out with in Cky called "Mike Vallely", and he was the douchiest blowhard I've ever seen.

He was a 5'8" balding manlet who looked like he hit the gym maybe twice a week to do only chest and arms, and he would get super aggro over nothing in order to look like the "tough one" of the crew; which isn't really much of an accomplishment, because the bar isn't set very high in the first place. His accomplishments included scattering 4 timid teenagers by flailing his arms like a windmill, and shoving a middle-aged mall cop away while the security guard was just trying to do his job.

He also had a brief stint as a hockey enforcer, where presumably his appreciation for violence might serve some sort of purpose, but then, to absolutely NO ONE'S surprise, the MOMENT he had to fight someone as strong, or stronger than him, who was equally as fond of violence as he was, he got his shit pushed in regularly. Never won a single fucking hockey fight in his life and was CONSTANTLY getting thrown to the ice.

The guy was the definition of coked up blowhard.

Mike Vallely, ladies and gentlemen. A possible contender for "faggiest skater in all of existence". Possibly faggier than even Bam Margera himself

I would be scared of being eaten by a giant squid
Your troubles would be more banal. Such as accidentally kicking up a cloud of dirt, obscuring your vision sufficiently so that you lose your guideline and can't find your way out before you run out of oxygen. Probably clawing at the walls as you take your last, watery breaths. Your mother doesn't get to bury you and she pictures your limp, waterlogged corpse, alone and in utter darkness.

I think I'll stick to snorkeling, personally.
there's no giant squids in narrow, dark caves

Discuss arts classified as Traditional East Asian martial arts here (Wing Chun, Tai Chi, Karate, Kempo, Taekwondo, Kudo, JuJutsu, Judo, Aikido, Hapkido, etc) in a safe space.

Discussions about effectiveness vs MMA etc are great but not for this thread.

Yes many of the ones mentioned are Budo which in Japan are classified as modern arts, this is for what Westerners perceive as traditional East Asian arts.

What is your art?
What is your grade/belt level?
What is the most important lesson it has taught you?

TMA just means asian martial arts.
Hence why judo is usually counted but boxing, which is far older than any kung fu or karate style, isn't.

Great! Best ask your coach what he would suggest you. Normally they know the best brands and also sometimes you can get gear for half the price because someone always wants to sell his nearly new gear they bought and never used through the coach.
Also let someone show you how to properly wrap your hands,the only guides only show you how to wrap but not how much tension should be on them. Your knuckles will thank you for it.

Pretty much any Tai Chi is good, as long as you pick a longer form, like 40 movements+.Beware of some of the modern lifestyle/artistic wushu versions, or anything that "simplyfied" the movements.
Tai Chi is like a single person wrestling kata with veeeery few kicks and punches mixed in. So you wil see an increase in your wrestling abilities because you train the movements you do, just without a partner. The problem is to find someone who can teach the real application and not some made up garbage. Ramsay Dewey has some videos on it on youtube and YMAA is a good recource, but you have to pay for their stuff. But even if you dont wnat to pony up money, go through their youtube channel to get some insight on how application and movement go together so you can see who tells you bullshit and who is the real deal.
Noted. Thank you Chun-Li enjoyer.
With regards to other kit, what else is normal? I just got gloves and wraps now.
Thanks. You dont need much gear actually, just get a skipping rope and you are good. If you really need or want some gear for your home too than watch this:

What do people on this board think of airsoft? I have had a pretty fun time with it, all things considered, but I understand how it can be seen as cringe seeing as its infested with operator larping tacticool Timmies who think that shooting plastic pellets at each other makes them Navy Seals or something.

Just turn up the power on the airsoft gun my dood.
Hard to pretend if the pellet breaks skin at close ranges and leaves welts at longer ones.

I only run kits that are 20+ years old or reproductions of them. Modern stuff is boring

Airsoft is an unrealistic art. If you really want to train something real, then train Judo.
extremely based. i see hundreds of modern
tacticool blackbeard opr8ers at my local weekly milsim spot but the occasional western kits from 1980-2000 easily mog any other period or style
It's about as much of a sport as going hiking is, so I'm not sure why it's allowed here.

It's a fun, and goofy, way for kids/teens to pretend like they're playing COD in real life. But, that's really it. It's impossible to actually take seriously since the rules are inherently unenforceable in a competitive setting. It's not particularly realistic since everyone I've seen runs around with 500 rounds in their mags, shooting at an unbelievable rpm. The adult larpers I don't really get, but we all have our cringe shit we like doing I suppose.

My opinion? If you want to goof around in the woods, airsoft is fine. If you want to play an actual competitive sport, that's paintball. If you grew up on airsoft and don't like how paintball normally feels, but still want to play an actual sport, play magfed/pump paintball. If you want to train to shoot guns, go join a shooting league.

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.

a 1-2 will take you to the moon and back in terms of self defence; if you come across someone who trains a more rounded martial art and you two end up fighting then you're both niggers and bad examples of each martial art.
How do I find a good boxing gym to learn near me?
Look for the blackest, niggest, most ghetto gym you can find and go there
lmao unironically true
Im trying to stay away from niggers though

can we discuss army martial arts training? For example, I heard a police spec ops officer saying the punches should be thrown with minimun hip in case you would be carrying all the gear on you in order to not destabilize yourself, what other stuff can you tell about it?

Ancient military martial arts too, like blocks, punches and other techniques from chinese or japanese arts looking retarded only if you do them without armor on you

>No they don’t that’s just Israel.
Most Euro militaries use Krav. At least officially, as I said.
And why not? There aren't exactly many choices. You can't expect a soldier to successfully train in the methods of a pro athlete, so stuff like MMA is out.

>And why not? There aren't exactly many choices. You can't expect a soldier to successfully train in the methods of a pro athlete, so stuff like MMA is out.
lol, you don’t need to train them as much as a pro athlete because hand to hand combat doesn’t happen to 99.99% of frontline infantrymen. It such an anomaly that wasting more than two weeks of basic training on any martial art is retarded which is why soldiers aren’t actually that good of fighters in general.
>Source: your ass
Just look at their internet site dumbass.

>because hand to hand combat doesn’t happen to 99.99% of frontline infantrymen.
lel opinion discarded. Armchair general spotted.

Protip: Militaries all over the world have rebooted their h2h doctrines because they know they battlefield of the future will be mostly urban, where h2h will be common (Think Grozny or WW1 trench fighting).
> Just look at their internet site dumbass.
Lmfao, show me some recruiting websites from European militaries talking about Krav Maga. What are you 15?
> lel opinion discarded. Armchair general spotted.

Got it, you are 15. Stay in school. Don’t enlist.
Pretty sure even the Marines don't do LINE anymore. MCMAP is the new stuff and it seems very BJJ and wrestling focused. I predict we will see the gradual sportification of military martial arts in the coming century. Krab Mango and other schools of camo pants aikido are probably destined for the civilian market.

/DGG/ Disc Golf General
My close personal friend Paul McBeth edition
Season is closing out if you live in a shit state sub edition

>What is disc golf?
Its golf but with frisbees or discs. Generally played at parks that have free courses.
>What do I need to get started?
A disc and some shoes to walk around comfortably. (You should probably also bring some water anon and maybe download UDisc for a scorecard, or print / make your own)
>I'm new what disc should I buy?
Pretty much any decent disc will get you out and playing. You don't need to buy a starter set immediately, instead buy a putter and approach disc as its a pretty easy to throw disc for a beginner and then buy more discs from there.
>Are there courses around me?
Almost certainly, check https://www.dgcoursereview.com/ for a pretty comprehensive list of courses and recommendations as to what ones near you are good.
>I bought a starter set and cant throw these things straight or far at all!
Go onto youtube and lookup guides idiot. Also learn to throw your putter first. It's most likely the easiest disc to throw in your bag and just because it doesn't fly as fast as a fairway or driver disc, It'll probably fly farther as It WILL fly straighter.

It appears the SSE here is 60.7 so i think around 16.45 pps?
https://www.dgcoursereview.com/mobile/course.php?id=9623 Here is the course in question
that’s probably high in the context that people talk about ratings. impossible to figure out from scratch alone what a stroke is worth. being that somewhere between 2.5-3.5 below par is scratch i’d guess by PDGA ratings every stroke is worth about 8 rating points. courses that are harder to par/higher pars usually give fewer points per stroke. did you look at the tournament page? you could check pdga d com s live and search for it
This is the event card https://www.pdga.com/tour/event/67343#MA1 very confused on how this works lol
sweet. near the top there’s a link next to a golden trophy that’ll take you to pdga live where you can see the scores, par, and at the end of each row a rating. on the link you posted you can also click “show round ratings” right below the division name and it’ll show the rating next to the total strokes. i think if you hover a mouse somewhere (maybe over the round column i’m on my phone so can’t myself) it will show you the par. looks like round 2 was a different par than rounds 1 and 3

A good kick to the nuts
Windmilling your arms aggressively on both sides
>spicy spray
In reality these are the correct options. The women who are hard boiled enough to handle themselves don't do martial arts.
Join a Feminist group! They'll convince you that you can punch on better than any man. Problem solved!

Side effects will include purple or blue hair, being a man hater, being a total cunt, ending your genetic line, ending up as a fat ass ugly bitch!
