Never flown solo or an ultralight, but just want to get in the sky as cheaply as possible and the used Ultralight market seems like shit right now. I have all the tools I need from my shitty amateur wood working, and can buy piece by piece from a local metal supplier.

Any ultralight pilots out there that can give me some advice? Is this the best model to build?

>I'm clearly talking about powered flight.

I mean.... sort've. What you are talking about is doing touch 'n gos flying little low-altitude circles around a grass strip in perfect conditions. If that is your cup of tea, go for it I guess? but it seems a little disingenuous to get huffy about powered flight vs unpowered when you are looking at very similar missions.
I wouldn't have to be towed, I can't build a glider in my garage, it's much more expensive. I don't know why I asked on here if people are just going to compare apples to oranges.

I saw some dude ultralighting while I was driving through alberta one time, it is very flat there and the weather was great due to being summer but my man was sailing at a few thousand feet for sure
looked insanely comfy
if that's the kinda area you have around you I can imagine it would be amazing
I live in the midwest and well I'm surrounded by hilly areas, I'm in the flatest part of the state. I may have to move out to Nevada in a couple of years, but it's the flat desert part too.

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.

We were flipping over bulls at least since 1400 BCE. Depending on the environment and our need we naturally developed moves to help us get over obstacles and move quicker. There probably used to be guys who were as good or even better then the pros of today.
Front somersaults are actually useful for covering more distance with a jump, they actually banned front flips in the track and field long jump. I don't know if anyone in the past would have figured this out though but it's not infeasible.
Rolls are incredibly useful for preventing injury while landing since you're transferring your momentum smoothly rather than trying to break it all at once. Rolls are used to break falls in martial arts like judo so they were almost certainly used.
I doubt anyone was ripping double corks in the BC era but they probably did more basic stuff like aerials and handsprings for fun. I'm pretty confident that tricking is better now than it would have been at any point in the past since there probably wouldn't have been a lot of sprung floors or padded surfaces to experiment on and sustaining an injury would have been a lot more devastating than it is without modern medicine
incredible pic. maybe there were some insane dudes back then.
Kie Willis' imax sideflip pre in 2012/2013 has been leveled up! wow
That just looks like DRUNK parkour.
Apart from them being either very tired at this point or wearing really heavy equipment or simply being very clumsy, they show very poor technique. They do not even use safety rolls. One of them lands 2 meter jump on almost straight legs.

>most people will easily get back to half guard when you try pin their arm to get the shoulder locks
interesting, thank you
NTA there is a variant of no gi ezekiel. Pulled it off multiple times during no-gi class but the couple times I was in MMA class I failed to do it, the gloves make it hard to sneak the first under your opponents chin.
Have two variations of it with different hands placement (first one is harder to get into the position but easier to finish the other the opposite)

>What is HEMA?
HEMA stands for Historical European Martial Arts, sometimes also called Historical Fencing.
It's reconstructing how to fight with swords, daggers, polearms and other weapons based on old European fighting treatises

>Full protective kit will probably run you about 800 dollars.
Well shite that's way above my 2nd world budget. Thanks for your answers Anons.
Superior Fencer kit 270USD + Regenyei feder 250EUR + Red Dragon mask 82EUR + SparringGloves 200-ishUSD

not very specific but that's about 800 bucks for a full starter kit. I donno if I'd wear it to any tournaments but it's fine for club sparring and learning. You don't have to buy it all at once either, you can do solo drills with just a steel feder and do paired drills at a controlled pace with a mask, gloves and sword.
Yup, that's way above my budget. Half of that would still be quite a lot for me.
understandable, but like I said, you dont need the full kit to get started. I brought my stuff over the span of 4 years.
Good read, my only criticism is him being too generous to shad. Just call him what by he is, a tubby sour grapes loser who doesn’t want to put in the work to actually be good, so instead he says his superior style that doesn’t compete against anyone is being gatekept from HEMA.

Paintball vs Airsoft, which do you prefer? I've never played either but I'm thinking about investing into paintball because it seems harder to cheat
1 reply omitted. Click here to view.
The biggest difference is the price of ammo
Paint is $50-60 a case of 2,000
BB's are $20 for 5,000

They are very similar, I would say paintball is more athletic.
I think paintball is more intense because getting hit hurts pretty bad and leaves welts. I've not tried airsoft though, so idk.
I like paintball, specially speed ball. I see it as more of a hard-core tennis type game, than a combat simulator.
I've never played organized airsoft, but all the larping and mil-sim shit is a little too gay.
>Play magfed paintball
>Use First Strike Rounds
>Better than airsoft
Minor disagreement with some of the points in the pic:
- Paintball requirements are overblown. Many of them are also optional as you will never seen them on a rental player. Also, it includes the hopper but not BB magazines? In practice, fields set the requirements and it's usually similar in both sports.
- Airsoft power is battery, CO2, green gas (propane), HPA and spring. Paintball is CO2, HPA and spring. They all essentially use expanding gas.
- The ammo part is nonsense. Airsoft is difficult because you have to wind? Ridiculous. Plus, there are midcaps that solve that issue. Hoppers are also not easy to use unless you have a $100 motorized one to solve feeding issues. Airsoft hicaps also have this issue, but that's also solved with midcaps.
- I've never seen paintball played outside of designated fields. The cleanup would be a nightmare.

There's plenty of cheating in paintball. The wipers are very proficient at it. Don't pick one sport over the other because both sports have them.

The equivalent of speedball is speedsoft. The respective vewpoints here is funny. Paintball players love speedball and think woodsball is gay. Airsoft players love playing innawoods and think speedsoft is gay.

OP shouldn't invest in anything right now. Play and rent both. I used to play paintball but stopped because I hated the feeling of paint everywhere on everything, and it's not uncommon to drop $100-200 on paint for a weekend (plus field fee).

Your best bet would be to develop rigid fingers from finger push ups or some shit, I highly agree with >>96473 >>96497
Though ask yourself what is your goal when landing such a strike to begin with, do you want to defend yourself or to cause harm? I feel like doing things like that is just immoral and pointless, I saw some eye pokes (accidental or not) in mma and iirc some had to retire from the injury. So like what is the point of doing that to begin with? might as well specialize in nut shots and throat strikes.

What is an edge?
well If we fight in the streets and i know you know how grapple or strike a knifehand finger strike to the bridge of the nose could save me. I'm saying I throw it kind of like a cross and i land it in that meaty part of your face right between your cheek and nose right below your eye. I think it would be effective
>I think it would be effective
And i think that if i can grapple and strike you are:
1) not hitting me with it
2) barely scratching and causing near no damage
3) hurting a guy who is better at fighting than you, congratulations for raising the stakes of that fight you were going to lose
Just to a martial arts gym dude, be it boxing, muay thai or jiu jitsu
Train a real martial art instead of convincing yourself that you can beat a trained person with an eye poke or a bite
>>constantly told how fingertip strikes like the karate nukite are useless
>they are useless unless you use them on a eyeball
Using them against any other target is retarded and you'll break or dislocate your uncles
>the one-inch-punch-on-the-other-hand
If you gonna aim at that spot why not just jab the nose or something, breaking the nose usually ends street fights. Again it goes back to the dillema of what are you trying to achieve, it just feels like poor taste to pull such moves on someone. That's my view as someone who never even been into a fight lol.

I could beat him in a fight LOL

We all know stories about how martial arts amsters get punked in street fights, how olympic athletes in wrestling, boxing and judo get smoked on the streets, and at the same time, how criminals train in the exact same martial arts that have been proven ineffective by these cases.

Why is this? Here's my theory: Basically, those masters and champions are specialized for the ring and the mat, that's why they lose against someone specialized for the street. Like a football player sucking at rugby - similar sports but different enough. Or think about Mayweather in a street fight: His style is made to exploit boxing rules, he wouldn't last long in a real altercation-
OTOH, The guys who are good with martial arts on the streets are those who are not overspecialized.
Thus, IMO, the most dangerous opponent in a real fight is into combat sports, but just a local champion at best, known for dirty fighting, with a penchant for street fights and violence. His lack of specialization for the ring may hurt his prospects in his sport though.

By itself its worthless, you need actual training in boxing/striking to mix with it and make it work
Dustin Poirier uses the blocking methods and Max Holloway (arguably one of the best boxers in the ufc) complained about it to his corner
Yoel Romero used it against Whitaker too
If you train to catch jabs and crosses with your elbows you absolutely can, but you need to do that on a boxing class since there is no one who teaches 52 blocks who can fight

TS Blur's "Why don't you play paintball" YouTube short says that paintball makers "All look the same", "All have similar design", "Not much customization for guns or gun variety in general". I bet he has never heard of the superior FSR and mag fed combo but how limited are we with customizing magfed paintball markers? I only seen a small amount magfed handguns availible and small amount of variety with magfed through stock or non remote line markers that or either custom or commercially available.

Got pic related from a paintball Normiebook group.
