Overrated. But then again this is the 3rd instance where we've seen someone who is clearly overqualified for this division have a terrible reign because there is no competition.
Placeholder champion. Owens isn't elevating the belt he's trying to elevate himself. 2016 is Owens year lads. Soon will be seeing Owens joining the Authority in main event matches against Roman Reigns, Dean Ambrose, and soon to be Face Seth Rollins

>>766959 >>Finn Balor >Needs to defend the championship more (I know he does all the time on House Shows but those aren't televised) and get a better finisher. The Foot stomp is garbage He defended it on TV two weeks ago. He also hit a reverse bloody sunday.
And Seth was a great choice for champion since he can outwrestle probably anyone on the roster. WWE's booking is 100% to blame for their horrible ratings.
Old general had an untimely demise thanks to the influx of WWE shitheads making new threads... All grapplers of their respective disciplines post here. Share stories, advice/tips, training routines etc. It all goes here.
Nice to see that one of my favorite boards is falling apart before my very eyes. At any rate, i haven't been to the gym in a while. Too occupied by school shit but I make time to go to wrestling practice every now and then. >>766914 Looks like an alright place. Just ask if they do month-to-month payments. Don't sign up for a membership with them if they make you do a contract for x amount of years unless you think you can keep paying it. That way if something happens, you aren't legally bound to do shit.
>>766914 If you want strong cardio, you need to adjust your routine. Distance running/swimming only trains distance runs/swims and doesn't engage your circulatory/respiratory systems the way grappling will.
If you're not worried about that at all, routine looks solid.
As far as gym, you aren't going to find any decent training facilities anywhere. If they've got a schedule that fits yours and they aren't screwing you over on payment plans (lease style first/last payments, contracts that force you... Comment too long. Click here to view the full text.
How'd training go yesterday? Two days ago? Did you hit any sweet tricks down that three stair? Nail anyone in the head while paintballing? Catch any sweet waves? Tap anybody out? Rek anyone in sparring? Hit a bullseye at 40 yards? Anyone who actually trains, this is our thread. I miss you.
I learnt a couple of defences and counters to a rear naked choke, which I think would be useful if I ever were to get into trouble of that kind (here's hoping I never do). Throwing someone over your shoulder is satisfying as fuck, but I need to improve my technique - I don't always get my hips below the opponent's, so I make it harder for myself and if they were really struggling they'd probably be able to escape. It is krav maga and from what I've seen people like to take the piss, but it's a) free (I do it in uni society), b) enjoyable and... Comment too long. Click here to view the full text.
Spent this week in class doing a drill we call 4-corner.
It is where someone stands in the middle and people (usually 4) stand around that person. They then one at a time at random doing random attacks that the person in the middle must defend against and counter, then finish.
I am sure that to some it sounds dumb or boring but it is a lot of fun and is a great way to review stuff, practice stuff, and gets you thinking about self defense a bit.
Tomorrow going to review pressure point stuff, which will literally be a pain, but it is useful to keep it fresh.
So as the wrestlefags of /asp/ and /wwe/ unite, I feel like we need this thread to discuss generally how things are done on both sides. Come together and tell each of the different threads we all do and basically get to know each other.
So let me get this straight.... In Japan Judo, Ju-Jitsu, and Karate are viewed as respectable sports and they respect the atheletes.....but they consider MMA as bunch of circus freaks??? I don't get it. Why?
>>766683 MMA is closer to pro-wrestling in its market demo and advertising. Shares a history with pro-wrestling in japan And many of the popular fighters are kind of freaks, for a lack of a better word.
The other 3 you mentioned are part of traditional and respected martial culture.
>>766559 >http://www.alvarezbjj.com OP are you humble bragging? Cause that guy is a Nova Uniao black belt so he has a non gracie BJJ linage. Really bad ass that you are by a school that teaches Franca/Fadda style BJJ instead of Helio's branch.
>>766569 There's no such thing as bjj hipsters. but they are people who are vested in the history of BJJ and being able to train in another branch style as good as the Gracie that is under cut and undermine for decades is something to promote.
Fadda/Franca's branch of BJJ promotes the hell out of using leg locks and more heavy use of wrestling maneuvers on the ground and standing, which has shown with how Nova uniao has flourished so much for the last decade in MMA and BJJ tournaments,
