If you had to teach an elite spy ONE martial art (outside of firearms and other weaponry training) Which would it be and why?
38 replies and 5 images omitted. Click here to view.
I'm learning a lot about different martial arts and how they all are just pretty much the same thing but with a different name.
There's often more variation between two teachers of one martial art than there are between two "different" arts.
Sambo. You get striking and grappling in a comprehensive system that's been proven in sport and in the field. Every other viable style ignores some aspect of the fight and weapon awareness is a concepts/drilling class you teach later. Sambo will build the proper base upon which a strong warfighter is built.
They both gather intelligence and assassinate people that need to be get rid of. Usually ends up being the later because they are after high risk targets.
They should be wearing shorts and tank tops for fights to be extremely realistic, lmao.

Especially on the internet. You can hardly find any discussion of any martial art at all without a mention of how good it is on da streetz. I’ve noticed some of the same retards in car culture (da street races bro), but that just doesn’t fly with actual track drivers. Not the same way as it does with martial arts, at least. Why is it like this?

Imagine if every discussion around rowing was about how effective you would be as an oarsman in an ancient Greek trireme.
>bro that technique wouldn’t work in the seas bro
>we would just go hard to port and then loop around and ram you bro

This guy gets it.
Literally every time a style has come to popularity beyond aristocracy in any culture has been because of street fighting
Is every sport with a ball a martial art then? I can't remember a time when a fatass beer gut wasn't telling everyone how they would have personally done it at Rugby/football/cricket.
>No one would step into the ring if they could get stomped in the head and die
*Stomps Japanese tomato cans in your path*
You need to know how to fight. Having a gun does not negate that.

*tips fedora respectfully in your direction*

Is there any sport\athletic sort of camp\facility\play center which most accurately trains for IRL police and military situations? Simunition airforce ,or I think its called Force-on-force? or maybe a version of Dog Brothers kali or HEMA\BON that allows a variety of non-edged weapons combined with striking and grappling?
I'm already saving money to do an Armed Escort (bodyguard) course, recently I got a gun license and try to often train at a range. In a couple of years when Im wealthier I will do survivalism training and partake in competitions bases on that...
>which is another question: Trail running, hiking, or Adventure Racing? which other types of competitions are there based on land navigation and athleticism
There are some places that will sell force on force scenario training to civilians but they’re almost universally overpriced and taught by under qualified people. As for sports, while I think a siminution based sport would be fucking based it just simply doesn’t exist and you’re only real option is to do airsoft or paintball with 14 year olds. Not that you can’t learn SOME skills through doing that but it’s really not like handling a real firearm.
>I'm already saving money to do an Armed Escort (bodyguard) course
Fucking why? This kind of shit costs a shitload of money to basically just LARP as some black rock contractor which you certainly are not if you are actually asking about this shit.
>In a couple of years when Im wealthier I will do survivalism training and partake in competitions bases on that...
Camping is one of the most relaxing experiences a man in the modern day can have. Why you would intentionally ruin that to larp as le survivalist is beyond me but have fun I guess.
Half of the actual schooling for police and military doesn't accurately train for RL situations.

Like others said, there is little you can do to legitimately/reasonably train for these kinds of things without actually going into a spec ops unit. The only realistic alternative I can see for you is to put yourself in situations or challenge yourself to do extreme things which require you to use all of your physical and mental faculties to succeed/survive. The closer you can put yourself into a life or death situation without dying, the better prepared you will be for a life or death situation

I am 42. Decided to jump on a skateboard which should be relatively easy think to do. I just forgot I’m overweight and live pretty sedentary and have no business acting like I’m 25.

Pushed it out a bit on flat ground and hopped on. Saw like a flash, it was like a temporary loss of consciousness, I think shock from pain. Didn’t hit my head. Came to on ground in pain. Thought knee was sprained so I got up and it just collapsed again.

I have complete tear of ACL/ MCL and a Tibia plateau fracture with a segond fracture (some price kinda floating around). I see surgeon tomorrow. Anyone ever done anything this bad to their knee? How much trouble am I in here?

A lot of measured activity for the knee is needed. If you want inspiration, watch the E60 on Alex Smith, where he almost died and came back to the NFL from his leg getting an insane fracture
if you want your knee to work you will have to stop being overweight. you'll probably need surgery, after you get it do the PT and focus on losing weight (diet, exercise)
a stationary bike will be your friend.

If you get an ACL reconstruction, get an Allograft with cadaver patellar tendon instead of an Autograft with your own tissue. The recovery from having a chunk of your tendon taken out is worse than the recovery for the ACL itself, according to my friends who have gone that route (I had an Allograft at 23)

Allograft has its own problems of course but the ACL is such a weak ligament that the difference is marginal in my opinion. the important thing if you want to do any sort of physical activity going forward is to LOSE WEIGHT. Get your BMI under 25.

>There is a potential here for no surgery as apparently you can function in a non athletic lifestyle without an ACL
that's true, the only places where you really need an ACL are places where you hear about ACL tears. You can definitely get back to a fairly active lifestyle as long as you LOSE WEIGHT. I'm not saying this to be a dick, I am saying it because it is the most important thing you can do for yourself physically.
>I just forgot I’m overweight
How much overweight are we talking here?
Something less bad than this happened to me at 19 skiing and I recovered from it with a *very* good surgeon.
>I’m overweight and live pretty sedentary
If you want to walk correctly again you're basically gonna have to completely turn your life around and force yourself to recover muscle after surgery. DO EVERYTHING THE PHYSICAL THERAPIST SAYS.
My experience with the patellar tendon graft was *very* good, from what I've read allografts come out weaker.
Though probably the better option for older people (older than OP) who actually can't recover from it.

Boxing, judo, bjj, taekwondo. All of these have weightclasses for large women. Only mma doesn't because most promotions seem to believe in a misogynist claim that women can't be both over 145 lbs and fit. Why not just add women's lightweight (155 lbs) women's welterweight (170 lbs) and women's heavyweight (+170 lbs)?

isn’t it a man on the right
That's a woman who utilizes all the power of chemistry

Most MMA fans and promotions don't want to watch big women beating up other big women, you'll just get female sumo matches out of them at that point, lmao.

Tbh we should have mixed gender bouts where its a man with Wrestling and BJJ vs full MMA rules for the woman. Would be entertaining.
>. Only mma doesn't because most promotions seem to believe in a misogynist claim that women can't be both over 145 lbs and fit
No, the reason is there are so few competitors in that range globally at a world class level that you could count them on a single hand.

There aren't enough world class female fighters at those higher weights for you to make a whole division of them.
Because nobody cares cunt

MMA matches should start with both fighters wearing full street clothing
i.e. t-shirt, jeans with belt, and laced sneakers
You can take your clothes off if you want, but only after the match has begun
What do you think?

FAQ on buying a bike that nobody reads anyway:
> What good bike can I get for under $500?
a stolen bike. Possibly a newer used entry level hardtail but don't expect it to survive rock gardens, jumps, or drops. Or an older mtb which won't be as good as newer ones and will still have a front derailleur, but it'll be good enough.
> What good bike can I get for under $1000
Good used hardtail, new entry level hardtail
> What good bike can I get for under $2000?
New Hardtail, decent used full suspension
> What good bike can I get for under $3000?
Used full suspension, decent entry level full suspension but prepared to put more money into it.
> What are the excellent value brands?
Marin, Commencal, Canyon, Polygon, YT, Propain, Kona, and many more. Sometimes the expensive brands have an excellent value bike
> What are the differences between an XC, Trail, Enduro, and Downhill bikes?

I currently own a Giant Revolt but I want to buy a mtb as well to ride some of the local trails over here in southwestern Germany.
I've been looking at hardtails/progressive trail bikes so far. My budget is 1500€ which can be stretched a little if it makes sense. I'm a clydesdale as well so I think a rigid frame suits me better, also given that i'm a 30y old boomer and don't intend to get too crazy going down hill.
I've looked at the Rose Cragger 8.0 and the Canyon Stoic. Basically I feel like I should be able to get at least a 12x Sram Eagle GX for that price. Can you recommend any other models?

>ywn have a bunch of friends with dirt bikes and atvs to meet up and ride daily

why fucking live? well at least i got to sit around and browse 4chan alone haha..

You just go out and meet these people when you ride, it really is that easy. Stop pitying yourself and go take control of your life.
literally just meet people. assuming you live in a western country there are a shitload of people near you that do this. just make friends with them.
just start doing street takeovers, its the new thang
I did when I was a teenager
Was okay
Now in my thirties and there's a pack of supermoto riders in my city
Saw one of them come off mid-wheelie a while back while having pints in the sun with the lads
He got up sheepishly and rode off with a new rattle
Very funny
>nowhere to ride that isn’t 15 bucks with rangers checking your tags at a gated entrance
Think I’m gonna get a Surron and just poach mtb trails

Does anyone know the best way to knock someone out without killing them? I only know basic punches and aren't intimidating in the slightest, but I want to be able to defend myself. Any specific punch or area to disable whoever I'm fighting?
>Pic semi related, I heard jaw punches are good, also the song kicks ass
Punch to the chin has the most knockout power. It may kill someone but it's rare. You can also knock someone out with pain by a punch, kick or knee to the liver or solar plexus and I've never heard about a death from it. Punch to the nose will not knock someone out but it can make someone helpless because of pain and loss of eyesight. If you're talking about trajectory, then use whatever can land. Jab has the least power but it can be used much more often than haymaker which is the most powerful. You can also choke someone out without killing him if you know when to stop.
Another turbo retard question, this board never fails.
Learn to run fast and kick people in the balls if you're not going to train at a boxing/MMA/grappling gym.

How can I get a bike and jump off a cliff with it? (Cause extreme sport)
get a bike and find a cliff then jump off the cliff with your bike
But >HOW<?!
do you plan on surviving or not?
If yes, then get a parachute. If not, then just find a suitably large cliff that doesn't have guard rails.

If you've never watched Sonnen vs Silva 1, Sonnen vs Silva 2, Sonnen vs Jones and Sonnen vs Fedor, watch it now.

Now, as you've watched these, you probably saw that
>Silva won the 1st fight in 5th round by a miracle
>Sivla won the 2nd fight in 2nd round after losing the 1st round
>Fedor won the fight in 1st round
>Jones not only won the fight in the 1st round but also humbled him so harshly I would commit seppuku after this fight if I were Cheal.
From this we can see that Jones>Fedor>>Silva>>>Sonnen. On the other hand, Jones was much younger than Sonnen, unlike Silva and Fedor. So who is actually the GOAT? Of course, it's GSP.
Chael was a few seconds away of defeating Jones. If he lasted until the end of the round, he would have won.

It is crazy how close he was of defeating prime Anderson and Prime Jones but many people don't consider him a GOAT contender.
>Chael was a few seconds away of defeating Jones
Sonnen himself said he went into the March against Jones frightened and not expecting to win. Didn't look like he put up much of a fight there. I specifically remember sonnon claiming Sonnen could tell Jones was juicing by the overwhelming power he felt during a clinch too.

Sonnon qas a high-level gatekeeler but not in the goat discussion imo. He fought the best of his era but didn't win.

Does hanggliding count?
Since when do the chans have a board for extreme sports?
me in the plane
Hang gliding looks really sketchy to me. I feel a lot safer jumping out of an airplane.
this happens like....once every 3 or 4 years, and the telling of the story is always an attempt to get the girl to show her tits.

I've seen this happen twice in my 12 years in the sport.

Why has no one invented a new type of helmet that isn't garbage? All of them are bulky, sweaty, and make you look like a retard but i'm not jumping off a 9 stair without one

There was a guy who made a beanie that had the protection stuff from helmets inside it. I wish I could find the video again, but I thought it was pretty cool.
sending a 9 stair looks cool enough that it counteracts whatever the helmet is doing to you in that regard.
thousand heritage helmets look pretty cool
I guarantee if the helmet industry ever improved like you want helmets would start looking so unbelievably gay and be 10 times more embarrassing to wear than they are now
It seems like skate helmets deliberately try to keep a mid 90's to early 00's aesthetic since that's the last time skateboarding was cool. Ski and football helmets have both updated quite a bit both functionally and aesthically.

Are Judo strikes more similar to Karate striking or Boxing striking in terms of power output?
65 replies and 3 images omitted. Click here to view.
When you aim for the upper bridge of the nose with a spearhand strike, your fingers will slide into an eye socket regardless.
That's why: https://youtu.be/DWzWwx8T3nE?t=89 practice was done traditionally.

Nippon Nukite is also such a movement where they only separate the the index finger for more accurate striking.

Also, you can always train those tendons in other ways as well, pick up a pencil extend your curled up fingers, extensor training as well with rubber bands and other things is also possible and grippers.

People miss out the whole point of conditioning.
Nihon nukite* sorry about that.

Some classic tricks.
They removed this part of it, dammit: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=yFqXSPyO2OI
