Is there any point in buying the kickboxing gloves over the normal boxing ones?
2 replies omitted. Click here to view.
Muay gloves are easier to clinch with.
muay thai gloves also have padding on the edge of the palm for blocking kicks
If you only box buy boxing gloves they have a grip bar that feels better for punching IMO. If you do Muay Thai I would recommend Fairtex they don't have a grip bar and make clinching easier and catching kicks etc. but it's ultimately preference . I know a lot of guys that use Twins for Muay Thai they have grip bars. Muay Thai Gloves also don't really fit as snug either. Make sure to buy a sparring weight glove that's more important really, given you won't really be fighting for a while.

Recommend me two pairs of Muay Thai gloves ($50 max and $120max).
6'1 (185cm)
180 pounds (82 kg)
Getting 12 Oz. Have small hands and thin wrists.
recommend yourself

twins special
top king

all good

12oz too small for your weight when beginner. is not about hand and wrist size. size inside glove different between brand. size inside glove no matter much. is about weight behind punch. use glove too small hurt training partner if no experienced. use big glove more shoulder endurance good for beginner. move to small glove later for bag to teach proper knuckle punch and wrist alignment

Mike V is a big time faggot. I'm sure i shared this before but in the early 2000s i was skating Hollywood High with some friends- we were at some smaller stair sets in the back not where the huge stair set where everyone films is.
I've ran into a lot of ams/ pros in those days and they've always been cool, the ones who weren't like Greco or a few others kinda just kept to themselves- but usually someone else in their crew would be cool with us so it was fine.
But i digest...
So we're skating and we see him and one of my friends was like "oh shit its Mike V" and like a little bitch - in a very whiney voice he goes "Yes its me Mike V, everyone just stop what you're doing and interrupt what I'm doing because I'm Mike fucking V. NO you can;'t have my board, NO you can't have my autograph, I'm just here to skate. GOT THAT?"
We kinda just gave him an "alright bro" and kept it moving- but because of that incident i couldn't fucking stand his ass

In 2005, I fucked Mike V on the train tracks behind a Ross Dress for Less. Man, his ass could grip. Real tight, not a hair on it, and a sphincter you could only dream of. I had fun at first. But he was so weirdly macho about it. He kept saying things like "thats right bitch, am I gonna make you nut?" and "fucking fag I bet you can't wait to bust in my fat hairy man ass hahaha faggot". I just ignored him and kept railing. He continued unironically calling me his bitch and a fag as he had several hands free prostate orgasms spilling seminal fluids onto the train tracks, getting more angry and dominant after each one. "Yea i bet you like dudes. You look like a pussy" he'd say "I cant even feel your limpdick bitch." I just kept clapping, wondering wtf is up with him. After about 20 minutes of railing Mike's boypussy, drenched in sweat and his cream, I finally got a nut off despite his constant berating and degrading comments. He immediately hopped off, laid flat on his back and bent his legs over his head so the cum dripped out of his asshole directly into his mouth. "The fuck you looking at? You like this gay boy?" He kept saying. After he got every last drop. He cackled like a rooster and punched me in the face as hard as he could. He nearly broke his hand, but I was fine. "Fucking fag" he said as he limped off into the sunset, shaking his wrist. That was the first and last time I fucked Mike V on the train tracks behind the Ross Dress for Less
Anon, if I were your friend, I would’ve stood up for you and said “Why would I want your board? It probably has piss on it, and please stay away from ME, I don’t want AIDS, faggot.”
Then as we walk away, you say “Who’s Mike V?”, and someone says “Some washed up pornstar.”
The frens we never make are the true opportunities lost.

sounds about right, thanks.
I'm almost 40, started in October and having a blast. BJJ, kick oxing and MMA. Been kicking ass and taking names. I've been in great shape in the past so it's not as bad as it would be for a lifetime couch potato.
It doesn´t give you some supernatural strenght when you´re training with them, like not a boner but super strenght, probably an ancient instinct that gives you strenght to rape, i´m not even joking.
Good advice, kek
Having even meager judo skills at BJJ class is the greatest thing ever. I have become proficient with just a couple of throws and it's gone a long way.

Anyone have any experience with adding throttles to decent eMTB's? Not Lunas or Frey's, but brands like specialized, trek, cannondale.
9 replies omitted. Click here to view.

in most places - in particular on the west coast of the US where all bitching originates - MTB trails are multi-use and there's been an ongoing conflict between the MTB community and hikers/equestrians literally since the invention of the mountain bike. The electric motor thing just gives them something new to bitch about - nobody is taking these thing down trails faster than they could ride a normal mtb. Up, maybe.
ah ok interesting. the complaints i heard were about emtbs basically being lite dirt bikes and ripping shit up, the complaints were coming from other mtb riders so idk. when i briefly did some mountain biking all the trails were bike only with jumps and shit that seemed like they coulda been fucked up by a ebike.

well, there are a tiny handful of dudes who are mounting 3000watts of motor and those are basically dirt bikes yeah. They're not supposed to be riding on public trails with those, but there's always a few dbags out there. A normal commercial ebike shouldn't ever be an issue for groomed, dedicated mtb trails. people just like to bitch, you know how it goes.
It's also the influx of people who don't bike (and don't have the experience, skill and etiquette to) flooding in because the ebike lowers the barrier for entry. Same thing with drones and RC. RC was a niche hobby until anyone could buy a drone and piss everyone off.
its so embarrassing seeing people riding around on ebikes who look so uncomfortable like they haven't ridden a bicycle since they were kids. its crazy that such a easy and reliable way of transportation is only now being adopted by americans since they put little motors in it so you dont have to do any work. most of the people i see on these things in my city are lanky nerdy looking white people who I cant stress enough, look so fucking uncomfortable and stiff and are probably only going like 3 miles max. mexicans and chinese use them too but they actually look comfortable and not like theyre gonna fall over.

For me it's comfy city cruising on a cruiser board. No exploding knees and injuries from tricks, or cheesy longboard dancing. Just cruising around and chilling out.

OP is a faggot, poser, and a fuckin idiot
i wanted to get the comet cruiser but now i see the wait time is 8 months lol.
does anyone know if the landyachtz ripper would be a good alternative?
i was also looking into other landyachtz boards but couldn't decide between the drop cat and the switchblade.
i would like some recommendations.
i'm beginner at longboarding and want something that is good for cruising/carving but also commuting and learning to slide downhill.
eh to cruise I just run something 8.5+ with 58mm wheels on a slightly softer compound, can still pull up the skatepark and have fun if need be

maybe it's too niche and people tend to filter into karate or hema depending on their preferences
i think big stick fencing is cool
why don't you like it
1 reply omitted. Click here to view.
I think the rigid top down structure turns of many younger people. The sport is extremely hard to follow, to the point where kendoka argue over the finer points, you pretty much have to live and train in Japan to reach the top, with only Korea coming anywhere close in terms of competitors,
and it no longer makes any claim of being "real" swordsmanship, which is a turn off for some.
Honestly, too fucking expensive. All fencing is prohibitively expensive for such an obscure art with extremely limited modern day practicality. This is why eskrima is so much more popular because at least their techniques are still applicable to modern day and its WAY cheaper to practice.
i paid $200 for starter gear and own a gun for self defense
It's a niche martial art.
It's rigorously traditional in the way it teaches.
The gear is expensive ($500 for a good set of armor), but it's a one time payment. That turns people off. (But people are willing to pay $100+ a month for Karate, BJJ, etc).
Starting you, you won't be in armor for at least 3-6 months as you learn fundamentals that aren't flashy.
It's still very much Japanese, for better and worse.
Competition is difficult to watch if you don't practice Kendo, since there can be a lot of exchanges and none of them meet yukodatotsu (valid strike).
It's not "real" swordfighting, but it comes very close to the dynamic of a swordfight. This nuance turns people off to HEMA where they will fulfill their sword fighter fantasies and quit 3 months in.
Kendo has the most shouting (kiai) out of all of the martial arts. For westerners this is uncomfortable to break into.

t. practicing 5+ years but still enjoy it
>i think big stick fencing is cool
SCA has a lower barrier of entry, is more interesting, and you can choose to not weeb out if you don't want to.

>Hurr push through the target
NO. You slap the target with your shin. Relaxed, fast, full bodyweight behind it. No pushing, just like you wouldn't push your punches!

This shit ranks right up there with

Clenched but not 100%, 100% strength on impact only.
I don't know how to explain in english well but there is a difference between contacting your muscles and excessive tension, like between running at full speed and walking.
I think you did a good job explaining desu

You fag
It depends, but if you are in punching range and aren't moving meanwhile/direct after, chances are your opponent will rattle your head with a cross counter/check hook.
>Clench your fist only as you are about to hit the target.
You never know IF you are going to hit the target let alone exactly where along the punches path the strike will land. Same thing with..
>You slap the target with your shin...
This implies you know have an extremely narrow effective range and if the opponent moves slightly outside of it you will be countered easily.
Retarded. Your fist should be ready for impact the second it leaves your stance.

>Should I start climbing?
Yes. Get a friend, find your closest gym, go there and rent some shoes. Start with bouldering. Usually two colored tape-marks set the start of the route and the color of the tape is difficulty. Route is the same-colored grips up until the topmost grip (not edge of wall). There's usually a difficulty chart around the gym somewhere. Two hands on the last grip = you've sent it, congratulations.

>How do I start toproping?
You have to learn how to belay. Almost every climbing gym has toproping courses if they have toprope walls. Same grip-color system as with the bouldering, but here it's more common with each route having a specific grade instead of being within a range of grades. The grading system differs internationally and for style see here for more info: https://www.sportrock.com/post/understanding-climbing-grades

>I just bought a BeastMaker 2000™, will I finally git gud?
No, you'll just fuck up your tendons. Google "Eva Lopez fingerboard routine" to learn how to use a fingerboards safely.

Bros how does top roping even work. I'm basically dead after a 3 meter boulder route

t. acrophobe
They're not as intense. They have highs and lows, and the lows are where you can rest up a bit. And then you can also just totally fail and rest on the rope.
Heh, well done Mejdi my boy, show those slanty eyed fucks what the white man can do.

Why are BJJ/“MMA” gyms so damn expensive? Do the owners have to pay dues to the team they’re affiliated with or are they just taking advantage of the fact that jiu-jitsu is hot right now? Gyms around me want $125 and up per month for the privilege of getting man ass and balls in my face multiple times a week. Boxing gyms around me only charge around 40-60 per month.

Lol, I fucking hate that. I had a handful of wrestling classes and I insist in starting in the feet. A lot o bjj fags want to start on their ass and scoot around trying to grab a leg. So fucking gay.
>$125 expensive for BJJ/MMA
they gotta pay rent for the facility and they gotta put food on their table. If classes get too big instruction suffers and you might as well go to exercise boxing.

20-30 students at a hundred bucks a pop is only $2-3000 to cover living expenses, gym rental and all the costs associated with helping their students compete.

Coaches are trying to run a full time business not do this as a side hustle.
but you also gotta factor in the kids classes, that's where they make bank. I wouldn't doubt that they make that shit more expensive

Any boxer can give some advice?
I wnt back to muay thai a couple of months ago, and now when I punch I get hurt on the knuckle. just the part I circled on pic, the rest is OK.
it never happened before and I don't know why it is happening now. I trained yesterday and now it seems I have some kind of liquid in there.
I'm putting some ice and will rest until monday.

While on the topic of boxing. Are there any tips for starting?
Cardio and calisthenics until you puke. Your coaches should take care of the rest.
I have a lump on my middle knuckle tendon now because of punching, wtf?
you have a bone bruise and you need to stop hitting the bag for a month and learn to wrap your hands better, 6 folds around the knuckles or might as well not even be wrapping, kiddo.
Nah, 2.5 meters wraps work well to stabilize your wrist but aren't enough to protect your knuckles. But yeah if you're having trouble with your knuckles, damaging them furthermore won't help. Take a step back, let the injury heal properly (dont do heavy bag work, focus on defense/footwork) and if you arent a limp wristed weak boned fag your knuckles should come back even harder after a while. Dont overdo it again like a stupid monkey though, take this injury as a warning.

>You are enslaved by the conditions and gravity, my man. No freedom at all.

Make a comparison with the maintenance requirements of a cessna along with other expenses. Plus electric gliders are a thing as well so there is that for your "freedom", freedom always has rules that you need to follow paradoxically enough.
Someone answer this nigga
used to fly gliders, now I fly airplanes

desu gliders = less freedom. you need other people to get you in the air and once you're up you can't just fly anywhere you please. yes gliding is beautiful but it's not as free as flying with an engine.

>Do you need license?
>How often do they crash?
basically only when they hit each other in competitions when there's many gliders in one place. otherwise no engine and systems means very safe.
>How far can you travel?
100-1000km, depending on where you fly and, obviously, weather.

master the ollie. the most important skill. after that it's gonna be easy to do tricks but you really have to master it.
When I was about 12 I tried to grind down a rail despite not being able to even do an ollie. I crashed into the flowerbed on the other side of the rail, injured my foot and shat myself as I fell. The girl I tried to impress went home and avoided me ever since. My mom also forbade me from skating. I'm 32 now, should I start again? Mind you I'm clumsy and have a drinking problem but other than that I should be fine. My favorite skateboarder is Eric Koston btw.
