Gi is boring af to watch. It slows down the fight because people hold onto the grips for way too long and end up tiering each other out. Literally nobody wants to watch two grown ass adults sit in each others guard for the entire round, but that's like 90% of all GI matches.

You're thinking in terms of offense. What about defense? Training in jacket wrestling means learning how to deal with someone grabbing YOUR clothes. Sure, a t-shirt may stretch or rip if you're using it to throw someone. But the old "grab their shirt with one hand while hitting them with the other" is universal and present in almost every street fight.

Uncomfortable?? Have you ever worn one? They are extremely comfortable.

The Taekwondo Dobok is pretty close to a normal pants and shirt, and can come in either very light, or very durable materials. Or both, if you can pay. Mainly, the only things different from typical clothes are that the collar comes a bit low (though it doesn't go all the way down like Y shaped gi's), and of course the length of the shirt which falls under the waistline. The former could be a problem, the latter, probably not. It seems like a sort of awkward thing to grab.

Also, of course there is the belt, but that's sort of part of the look, no?
>>
>>103495
When presented with a t-shirt or baggy pant leg instead of the skin-tight compression shirt and tights, it's hard not to grab and take advantage of it. Rashguards let you train like you don't have clothing grips, while mitigating the sanitary risks of skin contact - and are a godsend.

>>115574
This is a BJJ problem, because IBJJF rules allow a greater degree of passivity than most grappling sports. Just have anti-stalling rules closer to wrestling, judo, or sambo.

>>116506
In most jacket grappling rules, grabbing the skirt below the belt is a foul.

The only thing they are fun for is carving on mellow banks and pretending you are surfing. You're not missing out on much, they're just a novelty. If I still had a board like that I would just bring it out at the end of a session at a park and cruise around the park barefoot to cool down.

Ah, I gotcha. Looking at prices, might as well just stick with a standard board anyway. Though I do have a motorcycle so it’d be kinda cool to just throw one in my bag and go.
Isn’t barefoot kinda dangerous?
>>
>>116770
Yeah I suppose it's dangerous, probably way easier to roll your ankles when you're skating barefoot. It's still fun though when you're not taking your session too seriously.

Recently been getting my girlfriend into watching the UFC events with me and she’s been liking it a lot actually so I’ll show her some good fights here n there in between events.

What are some essential fights she needs to see? Not just UFC but any organization or any combat sport. Boxing, Muay Thai, Kickboxing ect. (The more bloody the better. She gets amazed by that)

I don't know why, but there is absolutely something special about watching fights live more so than watching them in the past when who wins is often known by the title of the video, it takes the fun out. If you really want her to get involved, take her out to watch live fights in your area. Amateur, pro, smokers, whatever you can find. Being there and watching it happen is just a fun experience and a good date night idea.
Just try to avoid anything TOO specializes, a TKD tournament or jiu jitsu tournament isn't the same as watching boxing, kickboxing , Muay Thai or MMA. Boxing is simply a big enough sporting event she'll enjoy going just to see local celebs and stuff.

This is a good idea. Experiencing anything with real striking, outdoors, in a ring setting, is a very cool experience. Like you're somewhere between a movie tournament showing, and a history book about old prize fighters and shoot wrestling.

Like 14 if you want to be elite by your prime(28-34). If you're a big boi you can be a champ as a lhw/hw starting at age 30 because they all suck.

MMA requires you to be competent in at least one martial art by the time you are out of your teens, because you're going to need to learn A LOT. You could get really, really good at one particular art starting at age 22-24.

A well-executed bumrush will win you 99% of the streetfights you will ever be in.
Signing up for martial arts classes in your adulthood so that you know how to fight in a streetfight is pretty fucking useless. You will always get fucked up by the more seasoned fighters, and a streetfight doesn't follow your little sport rules.

What will win you fights, is a flurry of uncoordinated punches, knees and kicks, which will make the vast majority of opponents either get knocked out by a lucky strike, or trip over while they're backing up, giving you the perfect opportunity for a ground and pound or repeated kicks and stomps to the head.
Sure, a very experienced fighter will probably fuck you up if you try something like that and don't hit a lucky strike. But let's get real, you following some BJJ classes once a week and dodging sparring is not going to make you beat those guys either, so why waste your time there? You most likely don't have the stamina to last in a long fight either. You're better off just practicing your strikes and kicks against a heavy bag, so that you can perform your flurry better.
And one big plus about this is; you're at 0 risk of CTE until you're in an actual fight. Meanwhile judo faggots and boxing chuds are getting their brain turned into strawberry slush with every strike they receive, or fall they have to "break".

I've only been in 2 streetfights in my adult life, and in both times I've executed the bumrush. In the first fight I knocked out a tooth, after which the fight ended and I eventually got into trouble with the police. The second time I was stopped mid-flurry by a security guard, which I count as a TKO.

Trust me guys. If you don't have over a decade of martial arts experience, in which you trained multiple times a week to perfect your technique, don't bother picking it up. It's a huge waste of time.

Literally what will make you win is a fucking gun or knife.

Speaking of skate related youtube channels, I wonder what the fuck happened to BRUTALtruth. His videos about legendary spots were interesting/informative and he didn't have an obnoxious personality like most other skate channels but as soon as his videos started gaining traction he just kind of...stopped. No uploads nor any social media posts, yet he seemed very committed to making more content so it's kind of weird for him to just stop it all so abruptly.
I hope he's okay bros...

Is Muay Thai good if you're interested in picking up a sport to do competitively? It seems more interesting than boxing, but I'm worried that there won't be enough places for an amateur to get his butt kicked, compared to boxing which is almost everywhere.

Strangely, lethwei gives each fighter one timeout lifeline they can use at any time to stop the fight for a break I think. It been a while since I watched it so I may be misremembering.
It's not as good as muay thai I don't think. It's got no talent pool at all. The burmese want to lump it in with muay thai but the thais refuse to remove thai from the name and the burmese don't like it.
Without the headbutt meme it wouldn't get a look in at all. Plus people like to feel like they know a super elusive secret martial art since MT is a bit mainstream now.

Winter. A summit doesn't even count in my book if it's not done in wintertime or in winter-like conditions.

How do you anons meet other like minded people to practice these hobbies? A lot of these seem more fun/easier to get into with friends. Obviously many /xs/ports are a lot more niche and finding a local club or similar can be challenging.

How did you anons first discover your preferred sport? Did you go in alone, or have irl friends introduce you?

I've been thinking of browsing around meetup.com and seeing what it offers.

Discuss which combat sports are best in "da streets!" and not the cage.

TMA faggots not allowed. Your shit doesn't work under any contexts.

Which is better for street fighting, grappling or striking?

I lean towards striking as unlike the cage I have rarely seen fights in streets go to the ground.

And 9/10 rarely beyond punches being thrown so boxing would be my choice for most effective for self-defense.

I think K-1/unified kickboxing or Muay Thai would work well if you already have good boxing skills, as never met anyone who could check low leg kicks without being drilled it.

For in the streets grappling possibly Judo over wrestling as people tend to wear jackets depending on the climate where you live. Tho wrestling for the cage.

BJJ outside of standing submissions that I think Judo has anyway, I can't see having any practical use in the street. Tho obvs its the most successful style in the cage.
