Go to a poor neighborhood full of minorities. Preferably black or mexican. Look for the nearest boxing gym. Congrats you found a real club.

You don't, just learn off the internet and spar with some dudes. I'm serious.

To all boxers here; please help. I want to know what weight lifts/exercises I should know about to do before and while I learn boxing. I remember reading somewhere about the necessity of doing forearm exercises. Anything else?

Got to uni like two weeks ago, friend of mine convinced me to join the snowboarding/skiing society.
Never been down an artificial slope before but I used to skate a lot. Any tips/tricks before I hit the slopes later this week anons?
>>
Been boarding for 8 years here’s some tips.
>crouch/engage ur knees a lot.
>wherever your lead shoulder points is where your board will naturally turn.
>learn how to fall on ur back, you can easily break ur wrist if u can’t fall right
>learn how to toe side and heelside carve asap those are the best ways to stop and are crucial for learning how to ride


Skateboarding skills help but honestly they’re both slightly different in how you turn to orient ur body and slow down. Carving on a snowboard is a lot similar to a power slide except ur putting a lot more weight on the toe/heel side to dig into the snow rather than digging in the wheels across concrete
>>
>>69815
>artificial slope
Like the plastic stuff? Wear thick gloves and pants. It will destroy thin fabric very fast.
>>
>>69818
Thanks man I'll try not to break my wrist, most of the balancing stuff I should already know.
If I fuck up and end up on my ass I'll put a pic in here.

>>69819
Got a decent winter jacket from a trip to Norway, that'll probably do it.
Britain doesn't get normal slopes apart from maybe in scotland on a good day :(
>>
>>69815

learning to carve and stop properly are the two big things to learn when you start, honestly if there's a beginner hill or whatever definitely start on that until you've got the basics down and feel somewhat confident. If you're boarding on packed snow consider wearing a helmet because it fucking sucks getting slammed on rock solid snow. Prepare to have sore legs

Hi everyone. Recently got interested in freediving and underwater hunting. Is here anyone who could give some tips for a beginner? I live in eastern Europe.
>>
>>68311
https://youtu.be/0hk799y_1Eg
>>
>>68311
Do a basic freediving course for a start, it will teach you a lot of things you need to know when you start swimming deeper than 3m and will teach you proper breathing discipline and such.
A good course is worth the money even if you know a decent chunk already, I knew a lot going in and I would still say it was worth it.

It also means people are going to be way more willing to take you out on trips with them since you having some kind of certification makes liability less of a worry.
>>
>>69405
post the relevant info here anon so we don't have to do the course. Are there videos we can watch about it? linky plix plox
>>
>>69687
All the theory shit you learn in it can easily be found online with google searches but as I said it's useful to have anyway because one it's coached training but more importantly nobody is going to want to take you out on boats without a cert because otherwise you create liability problems.

watch the video, one of the wrestlers even got a nosebleed
The fact that they did lasting damage instead of ending it cleanly and quickly is even WORSE, you barely protect yourself and you get sued for damages, how is this not a failure?
>>
>>69353
The story goes the wrestler got sucker punched then went to confront the dudes.
>They kick their ass
>Made them get surgery
>The attempted lawsuit gets thrown out because the judged deemed it mutual combat.
Sounds like a complete success to me.
>>
>>69307
yep, but you're not getting my point. tkd is, on a technical basis, not that bad. the tkd ecosystem makes it highly unlikely that someone who trains tkd only will ever learn how to properly apply those techniques effectively and with force. WTF tkd is even worse because it leaves gaping holes in your overall skills.

the entire system needs to be remade from the ground up to address those issues

The idea that Fedor is entirely a product of sambo is false even that's the common perception. Fedor has a MoS in judo, which you only get by winning or multiple podium finishes at national tournaments. You have to be damn good at judo to win a national tournament in Russia considering how deep the talent pool is Russia.

>>67852
Sambo does have influences from folk wrestling traditions of the former Soviet Union, but judo is also a big influence ofsambo.

>There are several techniques that I haven't seen in Asian arts
Name them. I'm not doubting that you haven't seen them, but grappling is pretty universal and you can normally find clear analogues for moves in both eastern and western wrestling.

>The reason I don't do MMA is because I'm 100 and nothing, 5' nothing, I'm not going to be able to show up some 400 pound gorilla in a contest of dominance.
>Honestly, what did you think I was going to do? You think I want to gouge someones eyes out or punch them in the throat or solar plexus? >You think its fun bowing out of a fight cause you don't want to send some roid monkey to the hospital or tap out and get sat on by some shitflinger with a spicy opinion about his barstool? You think I want to be known as that guy who rips peoples eyes out or kicks people in the nuts?
>When I was younger, I used to send guys like that home with broken bones, torn ligaments, all kinds of fucked up injuries that I feel bad about for weeks, but back then, they didn't give me a choice, you know? It was either fight back or get your ass kicked, and I was tired of getting my ass kicked just to save face.
>They have even done studies on this, the muscles you use to 'fight' and express dominance aren't the twitch-flex muscle fiber that you need to kill someone. You might even say these kind of skills are fairly useless in a self-defense scenario, because someone with a phone is going be sitting there recording you as you bend someones elbow backwards and your going to probably spend the weekend in jail.
>There was this one guy, I fucked him up so bad, I felt guilty and came to visit him in the hospital, when i found out he was broke i offered to pay his medical bills. I just can't do that kind of shit anymore, its too fucked up. I mean the dude was breathing through a fucking straw fer chris-sakes. Do you really think I'm going to get into that kind of drag out fight over a 20 dollar bar tab?

yes please do, just the equipment you mentioned.
either you survive it and have a great story to tell or you'll die and nothing of value would be lost

ITT: We take a non-extreme sport and change it to make it extreme.

Marathon but you can sabotage your opponents any way you want. Weapons allowed. Basically the Road Rash game but on foot.

Dodgeball with bocce.

Polo but with rodeo horses.

Water polo but the water is slightly acidic so your skin and eyes start to burn after a while and you can only get out (rotating with other team members) once you score.

Any motor sport but without brakes.

Soccer with bowling balls.

Squash but the room is so narrow and you can get hit by the other player's racket.

Years ago my best friend got his firearm license during the same time I got into motorcycles. got the idea of rally target shooting, I would try and make it around a loop in the woods next to his land as fast as I could while he would shoot rounds onto cheap targets we would staple to the trees. good fun but he is heavy retarded and a bad shot

Marathon but for leg amputees, no leg substitute help things

Let's say we toughen up Karate and Tae Kwon Do so people are sparring regularly and throw in K1 rules as the standard for competitions. Do both arts continue to use the same techniques, or would they inevitably land on a Muay Thai style?

Essentially, is Muay Thai the inevitable consequence of a loose striking ruleset?

Do you know what kickboxing is
>>
I would predict they'd land on doing what much of Muay Thai does that's useful in MMA but not just turning into Muay Thai itself. Like any sport, MT has a meta that effects has fighters operate within the confines of the rules and the incentives of the judgement and scoring system.

Feel like buakaw would smash in karate combat if he showed up
Think he can adjust his Muay Thai within those rules
>>
>>69528
Buakaw would batter quite a few people there just based on his athleticism and expertise but two things to mention:

1. Buakaw is old and shot to shit

2. He would have to fight in an extremely odd manner since the ruleset bans a ton of his primary techniques.
