Trying to do ollie norths just taught me to ollie better. For me it's really difficult to get me foot to flick off an ollie.
chapman has cheap blanks. they make zoo york and supreme boards. that og shit. but blanks are kinda bad for the skate industry as a whole since you aren't supporting pros or your local scene. plus better graphics = better skating. Shelling out $65 a month ain't bad. On top of that, you can keep your old boards as spares in case you wanna give the kid with the shittiest board something better.
i think nike makes the best shoes. i haven't tried them but i've heard good things and their products tend to be high quality. i just don't fuck with them as a business. check out this vid
nigga, why are you riding a penny at a skatepark?
wouldn't you rip your socks? there's one hole exposing your toes.

did you ever lost to a girl?
229 replies and 42 images omitted. Click here to view.
Years ago when I wrestled in high school I had the luck of watching a girl at a tournament who was a state qualifier in Ohio. She was wrestling some scrub who clearly shouldn't have been on the varsity team. By the end of the first period she was destroying this guy and made him shit himself. You could see a large brown log through his white/yellow singlet. Everyone in the gymnasium could see it. Everyone by the mat could smell it. The ref didn't give a shit for some reason, he really should have given the dude blood time. She ends up winning by tech fall in the third period. The guy ends up dropping out of the tournament after the first round. You could see him huddled alone in the top corner of the bleachers for the rest of the day. She ends up taking first in the tournament.
here's a girl getting 5 with a nasty throw down against a poor dude

Ohhh SHIT!!!!! Send that man to the burn unit!!!!
>we're both pretty hot now
>100% put me to sleep if she secured a limb
>to sleep
Used to do K1 training when I was 15. A really hot 17 yer would old beat my ass in sparrings constantly. I was weak as shit and she kept abusing me. What was really weird though, one time we did wrestling for a change, two lines of people rotating and swapping opponents. I tossed her around like a toy. I'm 100% sure she let me do it on purpose. Sometimes I fap to this still.

>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

>not into jap sword fighting, also kendo is purely a sport too, isn't it?
Not necessarily. Kendo is both a martial art and a sport, and it does a better job at balancing both aspects than competitive HEMA because it has both the competitive pedigree and the lineage with it; whereas HEMA isn't very organized with the former and lacks the latter.

If you're learning german longsword, doing Kendo would benefit you greatly. You'll learn the "soft skills" of swordsmanship that are transferable such as body coordination, footwork, learning distance, learning opportunities, and learning the theory behind fighting for center/fighting off center.
nope, stopped that years ago.
Mostly into german dagger, dussack/messer and sidesword for around 5 years now

>>creating something new

These are effectively the same thing, you can't resurrect dead art forms without allowing for growth and development.
>These are effectively the same thing,
Except theyre not retard. if they were we wouldnt use manuals

Would you call success in martial arts in terms of the practice or the functionality?

Practice = you just want people to join the tribe and cultivate their values and spirit through fighting..

Functionality = You want to defeat your oponent as easy as you can.

Yeah well if I hit you with a single tsuki, I’d discombobulate your sternum. Osu.
Pretty much the same as you, OP.
But not for a martial art in particular, but for martial arts in general, I think even the trashiest style has something to offer, I like the variety even if a style is objectively better than the other, it makes the art of fighting much more fun than a single style that does everything right, which is kinda non-existent desu, that path to martial supremacy is for each individual martial artist to take, not for a particular martial art.

It's debatable. Pretty much all the grand masters in those fights are fakes. This is because the real oriental grand masters have a phylosophy of not showing off, their phylosophy and their art are intertwined, they don't fight because if they fight the objective is to kill as fast as possible.
We are talking about feats of martial prowess that are legit super human, no point in blocking if they can rip your muscles with their bare hands, it's like trying to fight a wild big predator, it's just not worth it.
Li Shuwen is one of the greatest examples, he died poisoned by the families of one of the many people he killed across his life, he fought countless people, and yet he rarely needed more than a single strike to win, and to kill, granting him the nickname of No Second Strike. He had anger problems and couldn't control his strength so even sparring matches were lethal. To this day he is an example of what a martial monster can actually do when phylosophy is forgotten.

>Is proper touchtyping with 10 fingers worth learning?
ten fingers? dont think it's necessary but touch typing definitely.

i would only use more than two fingers per hand if the key in sequence actually falls near your ring/pinky/thumb which i assume are your never used fingers.

but im just an average guy

I bought a Onewheel Pint with my stimulus check and I learned for sure what a bunch of lying retards are on Youtube. Every video is "day 4 here... I left the sidewalk today". I'm not a skater, snowboarder or anything and I was cruising down the street in the first 2 minutes. You put a foot on the back, then put a foot on the front and push down on the front foot. It turns on, auto levels, then you just lean forward a little. I hit 15.1 MPH, then the auto slow down comes on, in the first 4 miles. Buy a fender
I tried out one of my cousins pints, after messing around for a couple minutes I cruised around the whole neighbourhood going 20+ km
If it takes you more than 10 minutes to git gud with this thing then you must be disabled.
So are these things worth it? Been thinking about getting one but I'm paranoid I'll get tired of using it after a few weeks and it will sit and collect dust.

Clinching, matwork, newaza, rolling , etc.

lmao, are you inviting me into the missionary position? :DDD
Why not both? They represent 2 sides of the same coin.

Everyone has their own preference whether it's tachi-waza or newaza. I firmly believe that you MUST be well-versed in takedowns/trips as well as matwork. Then you can have a 60/40 ratio of what you would prefer on doing which is more realistic than expecting everyone to be 50/50.
You accepted we start doing ne-waza. and you tapped 3 times within 5 minutes with me not using arms.
When you insisted we work on our nage-waza, you complained I kept going for kinshi waza and that it would have scored a waza-ari at best, only. Man, you're no fun. Next time is no gi judo, sorry, wrestling with a jacket.

Does /xs/ play kabaddi? It seems pretty fun for a not!combat sport. I've been trying to figure out the rules and get a team together, but we've reached in interesting question: If the defenders are "out" if the raider touches them, then wouldn't they also be "out" if they tackle the raider?
I would definitely play it if I knew anyone who played. Sounds fun.
I wonder what kind of meta-games pop up
Defenders will be out if the raider touches them and makes it back to his own side of the court without taking a breath.
If the raider takes a breath on his opponents' side, he will be out regardless if he touched them or not.
Right, but if the raider tags you, do you immediately walk to the sidelines or can you just lunge at him and try to start the dogpile?
In that case, why not just zerg rush the raider every time he gets deep into your territory?
Watching it seems like people are waiting for him to actually tag someone before the rest of the team dives in, making me think there is some sort of unspoken rule causing them to hesitate.

Not a player, but it might make sense if they were concerned about "feeding" more points/eliminations if he breaks free and returns, perhaps considering it better to know they're losing 1 and only 1 on this play than to risk losing 3. On the other hand, if they know they can put 5 guys on him nearly immediately that's much less risk to assume so they're more likely to wait till they can put 5.

there's literally nothing wrong with mongo aside from inability to turn while pushing, but who the fuck turns while pushing?
actually there is a disadvantage. it takes longer to adjust foot settings when you throw down. you also look like a fucking idiot.
it also looks retarded, but whatever I have to push mongo riding switch
i think there may be some truth to this but you can still overcome and get good, it will just be EXTRA hard to progress

No it won't. Hardcore purists won't watch it since it's an exhibition
