Constant pressure to compete and little to no support from those same people.

Have my first lesson Friday, any tips or resources so I don't look like a retard on my first day?
You'll probably look like a retard.
It doesn't matter.
Just make sure you don't smell bad, don't do anything stupid that could hurt someone, and listen to the coaches.
>just do it bro
kek, you'd be a great teacher
You learn things in Judo that you'll never learn in BJJ, and it will be a massive asset when starting BJJ. These things you'll learn are universally useful, stuff like footwork, balance, dynamic & explosive movement, etc. Judo -> BJJ produces better athletes with better scrambling skills when compared to starting BJJ first. It's similar to the advantage wrestlers have when they start BJJ. Just make sure you're at a serious club with a competition focus, and for bonus points you can approach Judo newaza with a BJJ mindset, i.e. less stalling out on bottom, more scrambles and submissions

I understand knock out, bash, drop, choke as a threat, but what sort of unarmed attack is 'crush' as in "I'd crush him."
3 replies omitted. Click here to view.
Try sitting on them, you retard fuck
Grab an appendage and squeeze.
Well firstly, it's more of a metaphorical thing, in the same manner as "I'd wreck him" or "I'd destroy him" even though at best the wrecked and destroyed opponent would just be getting a good kicking. From a more technical standpoint, I'd consider crushing to refer to taking someone to the ground via pressure from above and in front, as opposed to targeting the legs to bring him down. Imagine how a bear might rear up and almost dive down onto a man as it attacks. Sumo has a variety of match-winning techniques that are described as crushes so you might want to visit the sumo thread and ask for some example footage to see if that matches up to what you imagine.

I really think tree well risk is over stated, I ski glades all the time without issues.

But avalanches are insanely dangerous, I have seen several fatal avalanches in person looking across the mountain, fuck that.

Comment too long. Click here to view the full text.
the way BJJ is going it will become the new strip mall karate or WT taekwondo, even the shitiest boxing gym will teach you a lot of fundamentals for fighting
I highly doubt that. You have to roll in an active and resistant manner when learning guard work, sweeps, submissions and turnovers.
Boxing is the most efficient because you can knock him out and never get close you don't know what he's carrying
its already happening in some gyms, its the formula for making a style shitty:
Popularity + bad teachers + kids focused class= the dumbing down and striping down of what makes a style great

the same thing happened to TKD went form a style focused on conditioning and perfecting the technique (seriously, some kwans only practiced like 8 kicks, 4 punches and a couple of sweeps); when rolling you can be pushed to do everything with purpose and force, but also it can be done without those things, because of this i wouldn't be surprised if it were to be accepted in the Olympics (which can be a death sentence too)

Who would win a no-holds-barred fight, prime Mike Tyson or Brain Shaw?
14 replies omitted. Click here to view.

Whites can't fight. Also being le huge heckin strong man doesn't make you a good fighter. All that bulk makes it so they can't swing their arms or throw a punch.
who would win in a fight, the best light weight boxer of all time or a 6ft tall body builder? that's basically what ur asking but scaled up to heavy weight.
>Whites can't fight.
that explains why fury keeps beating the shit out of black guys every time the fat fuck fights them
The whole idea of whites not being able to fight is stupid. Every race can but Fury comes from a boxing family. He's been boxing since he was a child. Wilder for example started boxing at 20. It makes a lot of difference. The only reason a much less experienced and smaller wilder gave fury minor issues was due to being physically superior but just like when Thai's beat non thai's in muaythai its usually due to tons more of experience.
If Tyson just used footwork and landing a big overhand then him. If Shaw somehow managed to clinch and get ahold of him he could just pick up Tyson and slam his head into the concrete.

Why doesn't skim boarding get any attention on this board?

It's hard and not cool
Adrien Raza is a god tho
i think it's cool when they glide into the wake and do the pseudo surfing thing.

How much harder is it compared to other board sports like surfing, snowboarding, skating?

thinking about trying it since I'm an east coast fag and people say you can skim anytime. Plus, our surfing conditions on the east coast aren't nearly as good as the west.
>How much harder is it compared to other board sports like surfing, snowboarding, skating?

a lot. like imagine if to get started on a skateboard you had to sprint at 105% of maximum effort for several seconds, throw your board straight down a ramp and jump on, then once you've done that the other side of the ramp might cease to exist or have changed shape completely by the time you get there.

East coast is good for kitesurfing and all the related boardsports depending on where you are.
would skimming help learn other board sports down the road, or are the skills not transferable?
Pretty much yeah, if you are actually good at skimboarding you'll pick up surfing in no time. As for why they don't talk about it, skimboarding is pretty much only cool if you are skimboarding waves, flatland is lame as hell. Might as well skate over the lameness that is flatland.

Raza isn't cool, no one cares about flatland skimboarding. It's dumb as hell and is for hipsters who are too dumb to pick up a skateboard.

Can the philly shell and shoulder roll work in a street fight(no weapons)
7 replies and 1 image omitted. Click here to view.
philly shell gives you an automatic underhook with your lead hand anytime someone shoots on you. you can use it to stuff takedowns when combined with sprawling. Ironically that you said that cuz the Philly shell is probably the best boxing stance to defend takedowns
could be wrong tho
Boxers were proven to be the best fighters when 29 year old Mcgregor couldn’t beat 40 year old Mayweather
Wasn't the fight that inspired mixed martial arts the fight between gene labell and milo savage?
*in boxing
Yes because you can block punches with your lead elbow and break their hands

a week from now (when wrestling seasons over), ill be starting muay thai at a local gym. Is there anything I should expect or think about before going into my first class?
5 replies omitted. Click here to view.
All the gyms outside of Thailand seem this way. You can't even find a good boxing gym that teachers fighters anymore, just cardio shit from some retard that should be teaching in a yoga studio
You can find them, its more about the instructor than the gym. Look for instructors who used to fight professionally and were taught by someone really good. The good instructor I had, former state champion, was trained by benny the jet and used to travel to Thailand to train and fight there when he was young. There is some professional kickboxing still going on (depending on what country you are in), but the good gyms are usually in shitty areas where the rent is cheap. Real fighting gyms don't make a lot of money. Look up the professional fighters were you live and search form them by name to try to find a gym close to you.
Wasn't asking for advice fightlet
Get an instructor that has been in fights.
My local gyms instructor is a pro from Thailand with 200 or so fights under his belt

Does anyone use sandbag for Judo or BJJ training? Mostly the former. I don't have the money to purchase a power rack, weights, and barbell to do any barbell lifting. However, I do have 200 lbs. of tube sand and a canvas fitness bag.

My question is: How effective is sandbag training for overall strength training and how well does it translate in Judo.

(I know this may be more for /fit/, but /fit/ is frankly horrible and filled with coomerbait. So I'm trying here.)
As an all in one, especially if it's your only option, it's pretty good. You may want to sacrifice a gi top, or get ahold of someone's about to be trash one, so you can wrap it for grip and rip work. Treat it like you would any other power work. 5, 6 rep sets. Once you're comfortable lapping it with relative ease, there's all manner of twisting, shouldering, throwing, holding etc you can do. Standing up with it in a full hug grip from your back can be amazing for full body power. And while it may not exactly be sport specifc, working things like a suplex with it it is great for back power.
