Parkour thread.

Where are you at with your training? How have you been working around the limits of weather and lockdowns? How much do you apply the utilitarian Hébertist mindset of being strong to be useful to your training routines?

Freerunners can post, too. Maybe even gymnasts and trickers if you don't get your own thread up and running.

I haven't paid attention to "the scene" in years but traceurs used to tour locations with famous obstacles (e.g. a particular gap or set of stairs known for its difficulty or for being iconic in parkour) and clear them. What you're describing sounds more like those exercise circuits they put in public parks but bigger:

a song for the older traceurs here

Damn this guy has to be the best freerunner rn. The trick at around 2 min mark was insane imo. Also noticed that Ed scott didn't place this year for style at spl omg

Besides the traditional gym pants, harem pants, and shorts, do you guys have any pants that you like for parkour? I'd like to figure out something that looks normal enough but fits comfortably and facilitates good movement. Best solution I've thought of so far is getting something a couple of waist sizes too large and having a tailor bring it in for baggy legs and a tight waist. Looking at the Duluth Foreman Pants right now but I'm not 100% sold on them.
what the trick at 9 minute mark called?

Aren't some Karate styles in Okinawa don't have Sanchin as their main training kata but do Naihanchi instead?

Yes, Naihanchi is different from Sanchin.
It comes down to old styles differences (shuri-te and naha-te).
That said any kata must be complemented with sparring practice or your karate will be missing something.
Kengan Ashura is better, Kengan Omega on the other hand turns shit pretty fast.

height and reach are extremely crucial in a figh-ACK!
Man, he must've gone 500-0 against long range fighters
No, it's about the ability to fight at certain distances, Tyson was great at fighting inside/close range. Tall long reach fighters should stay at long range and prevent short range fightings from getting inside.
It is, but being a fucking monster psycho like Tyson helps also.
Tuson had great technique also. He had a really good coach who taught him the Peek-A-Boo style.

How do running regiments differ between sports?
Are long runs overrated?
If I fight 3x3min should i be running steadily for 30mins most of the time?
7 replies omitted. Click here to view.
when I did muay thai training we were required to run 3 miles first as warm up. The run was not supposed to be fitness training, but a warm up. The HIIT profile of actual training is what provided the overall conditioning for sparring/fighting. If you could not run the three mile warm up you could never make it through the training and it everyone saw that up front.
running in kickboxing types helps however as they help you accelerate your kicks off the ground faster.
For example have someone that does bjj and rolls for 10 minute rounds do 3 minutes of judo randori and they're completely dead by the end of it
>Are long runs overrated?
Yes. Heart rate is what you want to monitor, and studies demonstrate that cardio improvement can be gained with just 20 minutes training at the right heart rate. Distance running without concern for your heart rate pretty much puts wear and tear on your body without actually improving it much.
>If I fight 3x3min should i be running steadily for 30mins most of the time?
No. Focus on being able to do anarobic events for those 3 minute time blocks.

Running is an easy way to develop a base level of cardio fitness and endurance, but it puts a lot of stress on your body, and you'd be better off doing free squats, as they train cardio and develop muscle much more efficiently than running, and puts less stress on your body.
What kind of runs? I don’t think me dragging my legs along at a 27min 5k pace is going to do much

One year later edition.

A thread to discuss Kendo/jutsu, Iaido/jutsu. OP post tailored towards Kendo since it is the most commonly practiced.

>What is Kendo?
Kendo is a modern Japanese martial art which combines traditional Japanese swordsmanship (Kenjutsu) techniques with sporting elements for competition. It is practiced with shinai (bamboo swords) and armor. The philosophy of modern Kendo is based off of Budo concepts and aims to develop the self through practice.

>What are the rules of Kendo?

>Am I too old to practice Kendo?
No. Westerns start later and many people practice Kendo until they’re dead.

>Is Kendo a martial art or a sport?

Are they really drilling techniques with wooden weapons without protective gear? Is it supposed to be more kenjutsu oriented kendo with bits of iaijutsu?
Note that mongol naval battle tactics and korean ship making was poopoo, Mongols were technical masters over plains, hit and run type of fighting on horsebacks though. Each civilization has their strength and weakness! Horses don't do well on water.
> Most beginners start their Budo journey with a "standard" Bokken, i.e. a red or white oak, 101.5 cm long weapon that weighs about 500 ~ 600g. This “standard” Bokken was actually designed for studying the Kendo Kata.

Specifically Eskrima
I know the drill with martial arts, usually not effective for real fights and all that, but is it fun?
I've been reading into it and it sounds interesting, but I know how martial arts can be with scammers.
Have you practiced them?
Also any tips to differentiate between good eskrima teachers and false gurus?

Thanks. I ordered some 1" diameter, 28" long rattan sticks from Frank's (posted above). They should be pretty similar to what you posted.

Maybe a dumb question, but are rattan sticks actually credible weapons, or are they strictly for training? From what I've been reading, it seems like some people say rattan sticks are safer for partner drills but hardwood sticks are "real" weapons, since they're harder/denser/heavier.

Hypothetically, if you whack a guy with bad intentions, is a rattan stick going to be effective or is it just going to flex, bend, and bounce off him?

DESU I feel like I'd rather just use rattan. I figure, if I'm practicing with a fast, light, whippy rattan stick, and then switch to a heavy hardwood club, wouldn't that screw up my technique?

Nice, a tire target would be great.
Rattan can give out some mean bruises, but they won't crack a skull easily.

You will notice when using heavier sticks your techniques will change with less speed, finesse, and ability to spin. in the real world, you won't be carrying one type of stick, maybe you'll end up using a baseball bat, or a crowbar. or just a pvc pipe. You can always change and adapt the art to your needs to survive a fight.
Sounds good. Training with a variety to learn to adapt to whatever you've got makes a lot of sense.
If you were going to stash a stick somewhere, like in your car or something, which material would you choose?
Personally I use the Balicki Sticks made of polypropylene and rattan, usually in a Gym bag with my MMA gloves and other sports gear. I also stash a a Baseball bat with glove. I keep a durable flash light that can be used as an impact weapon also. In addition I daily carry a pocket knife and a bigger knife in my backpack. I wish I had a concealed gun permit, but the area I live in is safe so it's not necessary. There's so much to learn in FMA, it's not just about learning techniques and flashy drills or finding some special sword crafted by an expert master blacksmith.
** i use a pair of polypropylene sticks and a pair of rattan sticks.

nogi and it's leglock meta from ADCC and WNO is single handedly saving the sport

people don't want to see some flexible brown guy that can rim his own asshole spin around on his shoulders and stall for time. They want to see taps
>every roll just turns into a leg lock defense and punishment roll, instead of one where you try out a variety of techniques and really try to break each other's defenses down
>That's where the fun and skill in Jiu Jitsu comes from, not in getting the tap, but in systematically breaking your opponent down with technique and skill
What are you talking about? The modern leg lock game is just as technical as any other position or submission.
>Leglocks are no fun
>I'm just going to tap to position every time then choose someone more fun for my next roll
Or you could just learn jiu jitsu... You sound like a terrible student and training partner.
At least Judo makes you earn the belts in competition formats.

Can the guy handle a legit tournament match? Yes? Can the guy win say, 10 point fights vs his schools randos without a defeat back to back? That's a black belt or at least what should be considered such as long as they have learned the forms required if any TMA school still teaches them.

I don't think people understand that you don't necessarily want to murder people every time there is an altercation. There is a lot of value in being able to control someone and threaten with submission instead of slamming them on their skull and going to prison.
Sometimes altercations are with people you know and you just need to control them while they have a tantrum
I thought they were the same thing. What the fuck is the difference?
Being that small minded.
I’m just asking you to explain it to me.

If you had to teach an elite spy ONE martial art (outside of firearms and other weaponry training) Which would it be and why?
40 replies and 5 images omitted. Click here to view.
Sambo. You get striking and grappling in a comprehensive system that's been proven in sport and in the field. Every other viable style ignores some aspect of the fight and weapon awareness is a concepts/drilling class you teach later. Sambo will build the proper base upon which a strong warfighter is built.
They both gather intelligence and assassinate people that need to be get rid of. Usually ends up being the later because they are after high risk targets.
They should be wearing shorts and tank tops for fights to be extremely realistic, lmao.
>ONE martial art
simple effective strikes to kill/incompacitate because its not a sport. The type of training taught to special forces when you need to kill quick with your hands, or a knife. If you are a spy spying you are not putting on gloves and stepping into the ring you are fighting for your life. If you can't have a gun, you need a knife. There is a vid by the ronin former SF guy who said when he went into some countries by himself and could not bring a gun, or get a gun in country, or bring anything with him after arriving he went to the local store to by a regular knife he could use if he needed. Never risk an equal fight, always have an advantage your opponent make surprise you and be a better striker, wrestler, be bigger stronger and faster. You going to tap out or ask the attacker to wait to catch your breath when he was sent to kill or capture you for torture? What if are multiple people?
In certain countries where you can't carry a gun OR a knife, what's next? Carry a longbow and quarterstaff to troll locals? Usually not banned.

Can we talk about yağlı güreş as an actual sport rather than a cultural festival? an sport in itself.
what are its advantages over grecor-roman wrestling or Gi-based grappling arts?
how does it compare\square against sumo and mongolian wrestling (BTW, yes , I do know mongolians cucked japanese in their own sport -sumo- and japs installed restrictions on foreigners being rikishi)
pic related, turkish guy won.
>sumo champion
Not a real sumo champion. He's a "world" sumo champion which is an amateur competition that's much lower skill level than the professional Japanese sumo.
>japs installed restrictions on foreigners being rikishi
Since Asashoryu only a single japanese made ir to Yokozuna. Japs don't seethe that hard at foreigners, Hakuho was beloved even with his casual disregard for tradition; Tochinoshin recently got a very warm farewell during his retirement ceremony; Takanoyama was well liked even thoughhis style was aalmost the complete oppositeof what Sumo usually is. Japs used to be very racist in Sumo, but that's not really the case nowadays, at least nowhere near to rhe same extent.
Do you know who that is? Lots of amateur sumotori are couched by retired foreign rikishi like Konishiki
The sumo guy is Almaz Ergeshov. In fact I don't even see him winning any of the World's, only placing at them.

>Lots of amateur sumotori are couched by retired foreign rikishi like Konishiki
Doesn't make them on par. Plenty of guys from makushita win the World's and they aren't even in the salaraied ranks of pro sumo where all the truly elite are.
>Can we talk about yağlı güreş as an actual sport rather than a cultural festival?
Probably not, there aren't a lot of resources about it in english so most of this board won't have anything meaningful to add, you'd be better off just doing the research yourself with turkish language resources. Also am I just being a schizo or is this post harboring a grudge against sumo? What with it painting the success of mongolian wrestlers as japan getting cucked and using every chance it gets to reiterate how the based turk beat a very totally real sumo wrestler. Anyways, I don't want to derail anymore.
