This seems logically sound to me, but then again your teacher came up with the retarded idea in the first place so he might stand his ground out of principle. Maybe get a few students to try both stances in sparring to show everyone your theories in action?
Also, do you guys put your hands up with closed fists or open palms facing towards the attacker? If it's open palms, then keeping your hands higher towards your head would make you seem much less threatening than if they were lowered which handles his new complaint.

>Also, do you guys put your hands up with closed fists or open palms facing towards the attacker?
Basically depends on the person, I vary personally. I did talk to him and he said it's fine to teach kids to keep hands up and I can do what I want for my stance and stuff it's more for senior adults was a quick talk but still that's better than nothing, not the worst outcome not the best either but as I said was a quick talk

Just bought a 5'11 shorty for the winter swells, moving up from a longboard :D
>>
>>71048
Well don't get flustered and keep at it. It took me a while to move down to a short board. Don't think there's any shame in pulling the longboard back out if or when you get frustrated. I swore off it for a few weeks and went back to longboarding just to pull it out again a month later and suddenly be able to do it like I wanted to. Then again that's in florida where there usually aren't too many great shortboarder days.

Is cycling an extreme sport?

Pic related, me yesterday.
>>
Hows new york these days? Also cycling seems scary as shit with cars around.
>>
>>69901
no
>>
>>69920
I'm not OP but riding with cars around makes it more fun IF you have plenty of space. If you're on a narrow road and they're passing by close and fast, that sucks. City riding is fun because it's all sprinting and dodging. I'd probably get sick of it if I did it all the time.
If you want to do cycling but really don't want to ride with cars, then I recommend picking up gravel cycling instead.

Here are some of my favourite pictures of my favourite unlimited class race planes.

I have a soft spot for Strega and Dago Red, Strega has a beautiful paint job and Dago was and still is the fastest. Czech Mate is just draw dropping beautiful, and still quick with that 'small' engine shoved in the front.

Enjoy!

do not buy a paramotor first. start paragliding and learn on the beach/dunes. you should ideally have 10 hours of ground handling before you attempt a big mountain flight. please please please learn mitsos. honestly so cringe seeing how some people kite their gliders. they just thrash it around with the brakes. and you can't do anything about it because everyone is 40 and extremely type A.

I'm a board tourist and have never taken an interest in martial arts before, but here's some retarded idea i just came up with:

Two fighters are suspended by their hands on two parallel calisthenics bars, just high enough that their feet don't touch the ground. They are allowed to kick each other, and really good fighters could probably use one of their hands if they're brave. Kicking the hands and arms suspending the opponent is illegal. The first one to lose their grip and fall is the loser.

It may not work but fuck it'd be fun to watch.
>>
>>70667
I absolutely love this.
>>
>>70667
You could also have variations of it, like fighters hanging by the back of their knees, or doing the flagpole and kicking sideways, or a vale tudo version where it's just a grid on top and they can do whatever to make the opponent fall.

>Try that on any college wrestler.
Would easily work because the college wrestler is not prepared for it.

Never go full sports, always only use sports as a baseline delivery system. The rest is dirty fighting. Reason: Sports are specialized too much towards sport.
Don't fear the world champion, fear the gym bully. The champion is already degenerated and only useful for ring fighting, the gym bully does his thing for street fighting.

>Jerry directly calls out krav maga and their bullshit disarm techniques.
That's because civilian krav is just larping. Military krav is very different (Few if any technique drills, majority of training is toughness and aggressiveness drills, eg. one guy trying to get to the other end of the room and the rest of the group trying to keep him from getting to the other end of the room). It's almost like two different martial arts.

Now, military krav is far from perfect, but to get people up to scratch for a street fight in a few weeks? Yeah, works fine.
>>
>>71911
Don't think so. I think if you try that you'll just get bowled over. I'm not saying dirty fighting doesn't work, I'm saying that move doesn't work. And is potentially reflective of the techniques in the rest of the system. Low percentage "kill moves" that are almost impossible to land on a resisting opponent.
