Any sambo gym recommendations? I'm thinking about heading to Japan when the world hopefully returns to normal. I went to Carpe Diem and the Kodokan and had a great time.

High 180s, last I heard. Similar case to RDA during his meaty days.

RDA had a pair of guys running his S&C program, so he could just trust them. Dunno what Khalabeeb has.

(I hope this is the right board to post this in)
While im not in any military branch,I want to get AS though,fit, combat-ready, AS possible.
What training,conditioining, and deprivation(sleep,food,etc),must I do to be on special forces tier(rangers,green berets,etc)
For example i learnt this from a kaibil I messaged directly:
>90 seconds holding breath underwater
>eat the meal in 60 seconds,then meal's over

Also, i thought of
>heavy rucking many km for time
>swimming with clothes and boots on
>burpee,s chin ups, jumping jacks,etc.

What do I do? assuming I have this whole year as preparation. i'll probably do a fast from all electronics this year to accomplish this.

i had second hand account for our army special forces training.
yes if they see you are too /fit/, they will try to challenge you even more, or give you other kind of tasks like repetitive bullshit, sleep deprivation, humiliation, etc...
the whole point is that you show you can obey orders under stress, keep a cool head, have a team spirit while also being physically fit.
>>
Your first step is to become physically fit. All other skills are enabled by fitness. Be able to run, lift, and pull. Don't even start rucking yet.
>>
>>16288
It really depends on what you want to do. PJs have to be amazing swimmers while Green Berets not so much. Green Berets on the other hand need to be able to hike god awful distances, navigate successfully in total darkness, and then hold a conversation in Pashto with some retard. Get into long-distance running and avoid rucking. Save rucking for doing cool stuff like hiking the CDT or something. Don't blow up your knees walking around a neighborhood.
>>
>>16288
Generally, you want to be as durable as possible, while still maintaining good humor. The best practice for this is camping/backpacking with newbies/idiots. Also, practice sleep deprivation by getting only 3 hrs of sleep per night for a few nights per week, training for an Iron Man, and taking various martial arts and weapons classes.
I suggest camping/backpacking one weekend per month, weapons courses 2 days per week, and exercising 4 days per week.

Heard mixed stuff about Hema and co. Sounds fun, but falls under the fencing "If I can graze you and you can't hit me, I can effectively kill you," mentality, but without any fear of being hurt.

Buhurt looks pretty fun though.

Depends how you train, the problem is older HEMA manuals such as Fiore's Flower of Battle train you for real threats from street fighting to warfare, but when the manuals shifting more to dueling it became more sportified. There are some manuals though that focus more on warfare such as sabre and some greatsword manuals. Theres also the wrestling and pugilist manuals to consider too.

Its iffy, when you dont have the threat of a sharp blade some manuals become a bit weird to use. Fiore's Flower of Battle being a big example, it treats a lot of actions as though the blades are sharp and has a lot of focus of shutting down the opponent's blade entirely instead of just moving it just out of the way enough so you can score like in later manuals.

Bohurt/HMB is something else entirely, you cant do thrusts so a lot of stuff is just who can swing harder or tackle the opponent to the ground so they get eliminated. Its incredibly brutal and i give credit to those who can do it, but its really more about knowing how to fight in groups.

2 set ups.

>>17535
Why do all these nu-skaters think you need a different setup for both? As someone who has been a park rat for 20 years, I can carve a bowl better than most people who ever stepped on a board, and I still ride a 7.75. wheels make the biggest difference when carving bowls. you need that grip.
>>

I'm tall and lanky. I feel much better on wider board. It's completely personal preference, this type of dumb 4chan contrarianism doesn't work here.
>>
>>17612
Original transition boards were 9+ I believe. Toothpick boards + Venture trucks and tiny wheels came around in the 90s when street skating killed vert and bowl skating and these setups were used to do circus tricks in the streets. Large decks just feel way more optimal in transition for me. The place I skate at has a 20 foot vert wall, hitting that thing with a toothpick feels deadly as fuck.
>>
why are there so many retarded boomers trying to force size memes on here. your not gonna get the whole board to switch to 7.75 because you wont shut the fuck up about how thats what everyone used to ride when you actually skated. let people ride whatever the fuck they want. it literally doesnt matter, your not more badass for skating a tiny deck and your not cooler for being contrarian

honestly, I didn't know scooters were stills a thing in extreme sports until I was checking out the channels on my Roku TV and saw the skating/extreme sports channel. They did some cool shit, but as someone who used to skate and scooter as a kid, scooters felt way too easy. I could get tricks down in a matter of minutes, but skating felt more rewarding for learning something. Scooters were banned from my local skate park, and I lived in the middle of the empty desert so there wasn't much street stuff to do. Maybe it being easy means I should have stuck with it, but scooter kids were also mercilessly teased in my youth, so I opted for being a skater douche rather than a scooterfag.
>>
Scooters are fucking gay. That being said, some of the things scooter riders are capable of doing now a days is undeniably impressive. But i couldn't imagine the lack of self respect that drives someone to pursue such a lame sport, considering the risk of snapping your neck from hucking somersaults. I personally knew someone who absolutely destroyed his knee-cap, broke his wrists, lost his entire front row of teeth, etc pursuing sponsorships that paid close to nothing.

I've been skating for over a year now and I still can't ollie. I don't have any friends and the retards at reddit can never help. Usually what happens is the board goes behind my back and it seems like I've tried everything to fix this but it still won't pop straight. Doing tricks looks so fun but it's so frustrating that I can't even do the foundation for nearly all modern skate tricks. I'm thinking about just getting a freestyle board and getting into that.

I'd say you need to adjust the positioning of your back foot. It's hard to say what you're doing wrong without being able to see you try. You should literally try 100s of times every day you can, it's best way to learn any trick.

>>14325
This guy may be right too.
Can you tic-tac op? You start stationary and and move your nose left to right and build up momentum. If not try learning that and shuv its (without popping) first.

eunice is really all i need to be quite honest with you anon

>>4331
you're probably trying to hard or focusing too hard. just practice barely popping it up. imagine a slight pop of the tail into the ground and more of a light flock forward with your front foot. as if you were just trying to get the front wheels to hop over a crack and don't worry about the back. once you do that enough, you just do it with a little more intent and the back will come off the ground. it takes years to get a high ollie, but once you can do a small one, it's more mind over matter. I found that I kept getting higher by putting bigger obstacles in front of me. with no obstacle, it looks like I can only ollie about knee height... but I can put a waist high barrier in front of me and make it over 9/10 times.
