Hey, looking to pick up a MA, as my condition went to shit and i put on way to much chub college offers these:Aikido, Capoeira, Judo, JuJutsu, Karate, Kung Fu, Muay Thai, NinJutsu Tae Kwon Do wich one would be best suited to loose the weight and build up condition?
New to airsofting, been once but went in just some walking pants and a grey hoodie. I've decided im going to buy some gear for it and was wondering if anyone would recommend and certain pieces of kit, certain camos etc? Anything will be very helpful
Look around the local goodwills for uniform pieces in different camos. I got a pair of us military combat trousers in desert, light urban and woodland camouflage all together for less than $20. It's not even hard.
Military surplus store are great , example i buyed yesterday a Jigsaw Cargo pants (jigsaw is the camo belgian army uses ) and a Combat Fleece sweater .
The sweater fits perfectly under my tactical vest and are really confortable , the pants are confortable and hot enough for western europe woods ;D and all of that costed me only 50€ (45€ for the sweater 5 € for the pants
last week my 3 month gym membership expired and i didn't renew it because of the prices there. i pause for a week and i already started feeling like an inactive shit. i only tried out the 3 months option because i planed to join a martial arts gym after that ( mma or simply muay thai if i can find serious gyms ). i'm still young and i could perform well in competition about a couple of months or a year and i have time for that. however i haven't found a serious martial gym yet, i have a few option in mind but i didn't try out any of them yet.

I have some experience with arts and no experience with weights (some with bodyweight, tho) If you want to conserve your weightlifting mindset, you're best thinking of MAs as cardio. If you're already built a bit, it will contribute to get you slimmer/burn fat. Denfinitely no mass gaining, unless you're just starting. Also, it's lots of fun, if that's waht you enjoy. Much better than jogging for cardio.
By all means take a self-defence class, but be sure they're serious (try http://www.nononsenseselfdefense.com/self-defense.htm for example).
>>756974 No idea, friend. I have never done weights, and only did bodyweight as compliment to MA. If you can find a place that does 1h classes (as opposed to 1,5h most do) you can probably use that as cardio before weights workout, I guess?
Interleaving wight days with 1,5h MA days will probably leave you exhausted in a matter of weeks. While not building mass, MAs will still train muscles for resistance and explosiveness, and the shit will leave you sore. Probably.
I think it's best I leave this question... Comment too long. Click here to view the full text.
Long story short I have away too much time on my hands and I'm looking into martial arts to do in my down time after work on the weekdays. I've done boxing, muay thai, savate, and general kickboxing and I'm doing judo/sambo now. I'm just wondering if you fellas reckon it's worth my time doing TKD, or if anyone who's done TKD with or without another art can tell me the benefits of it or if it's practical whatsoever.
Well, it's the "science of kicking", similar how boxing is the science of striking. You'll devellop very clean techniques and if you throw some TKD stuff into a kickboxing fight you can surprise people a lot.
Downsides are the sparring modus, it devellops into "kick sniping" and you'll have less "penetration power" than other kicking martial arts with less refined techniques. Also it's sometimes a little bit "military like", if you know what I mean,... Comment too long. Click here to view the full text.
While TKD gets shit on pretty hard (and I'll shit on some TKD dork who thinks they can just step right into a real fight without any work) you can transition to real fighting with some boxing and wrestling.

Hey /asp/, I was wondering, Why is it that MA/ combat sports instructors (generally pretty ripped guys or at least in good condition) make all their students do so much calisthenics when you can read everywhere that weight training is an "easier", more efficient way of improving your strength? Like, do they want their students to stay average until they actually become pros? What's your vision on strength and body conditioning in general in regards of what's needed in martial arts?
>>756767 Its one of the faults of tradition, sometimes you do stuff that isn't efficient because thats what they did in the old days and they didnt know any better. It's a case of a guy teaching the way he was taught, because his teacher taught him that way and so on
>>756767 So they can do it in the club without expensive and non idiot proof kit. They assume that the majority of their students won't work out otherwise at home.
Weight training is better by far but sometimes calisthenics can be good too and is obviously easier to train groups in. Also to get results weight training takes as much tutelage and work as the rest of the nights class.
It's also that for most combat sports you need to be loose and not stiff. Using weights in the wrong way (for martial arts or combat sports) will just bulk you and make you slow. Stronger but slow and that's not good for most stand up martial arts
So I just recently purchased a penny board and was looking for areas where I could practice without looking like an idiot, and I found a place that might be a good spot but idk if it's legal to skate there. It's an abandoned bank that hasn't had anyone in there in about three years and has a pretty good parking lot but it has a lot of signs that say no roller blading or skateboarding. Are those signs still up to date or are they expired?

So I started boxing this week. I sparred yesterday (nothing too serious, only focusing on body) and holy shit it's hard and tiring. I felt so slow and akward, like I didn't know what to do. I also felt really weak. What should I focus on to make myself better. I also need to work on slipping and footwork. When I shadow box I also feel pretty awkward. Idk why.
Anybody got tips to help me improve? (Obviously keep training but I mean stuff to focus on)
