>>754648 You're gonna have be more precise than "occasionally" if you want some actual tips m80. "Loosening up" usually just means "using just the right amount of force at the exact right time" and depends on what your trying to do.
Generally I find that it comes naturally once I know a technique good enough. It helps me to practice it without an opponent, when I can do it properly by myself I find it easier to understand where I go wrong once I try it on an actual opponent.
You could have all the experience in the world, but still have no knowledge to offer. Tell us, what do you have to offer beginner students to learn? Once you teach then the attacks and defenses, what knowledge do you have to offer about applying them? What do you actually have to offer about fighting? What will you do differently that merits opening a new gym, with you as the head?
>>754391 I've been in countless karate tournaments, won 5 local kickboxing tournaments and 2nd place in a national tournament, 7 amateur boxing matches with a record of 5-2-0. I've been teaching karate for about 2 years, and i have quite the amount of students, where i live there's only muay thai gyms, so that's why i like to open an "american" style kickboxing gym, but i don't know if that would work out,
I'm in a small town a few hours out of a large city, so all we have is the SCA. Sure there are bigger groups outside, but they are nothing to talk about. (mostly LARPers) I used to do heavy, that was alright but I moved to rapier because of some issues with one of the fighters. I'm not going to compare cut and thrust with HEMA because myself, and virtually every fighter here wishes we could try that. But I do appreciate the structure of the game and how it is more of a sport, which is easier to follow. Most of us study fight manuals outside... Comment too long. Click here to view the full text.
I run the club with another two friends. We love it and we put our heart and souls into dissecting the technique and running the club as best we can. Our club is young (we've been running it for just over a year), but we've managed to attract a huge number of members. Although I have a long time background in historical swordplay, most of it wasn't proper HEMA.
At times it gets a bit overwhelming. Between running the club business-wise, preparing... Comment too long. Click here to view the full text.
>>754308 >I'm not going to compare cut and thrust with HEMA because myself, and virtually every fighter here wishes we could try that. Why in assfuck aren't you just staring a study group then? SCA regulation uses essentially the same gear, right? Darkwood rapiers used to be gold standard HEMA rapier kit, for instance.
It's not like the existing HEMA instructors appeared by magic, you know.
>>754080 Which variant? Northern or Southern? After the Ming dynasty's destruction of the Shaolin, Bahua Tsang (proper name) was well and truly ruined in the northernmost parts of China. Some schools from the south like Emei style overturning fist survived, however, which is possibly where your lineage is from. My Tai Chi teacher trained in it for a while, don't think she liked it much though.
I'll start. Took my first real knee (we were supposed to spar lightly but my partner messed up on this one) in the ribs in muay thai and it hurts like hell. How am I supposed to take knees? What muscles (if any) should I develop to make this less painful? And before anyone says I'm a faggot, I'm relatively old, no real fightan background and skinnyfat.
>>753930 ever see how in mma when someone gets kicked in the nuts or eye poked by accident, they buckle over and need a couple minutes to recover? now imagine if that was done on purpose. If you think they aren't effective you are a dope. Techniques get banned from competition based only on the merit that they can cause long term sometimes irreversible, serious damage to someone too easily.
>>753980 >ever see how in mma when someone gets kicked in the nuts or eye poked by accident, they buckle over and need a couple minutes to recover? You're an idiot. Whenever the opponent fouls them, they're entitled to a few minutes to recover and they take it, to maximize their advantage.
Hello there everyone. I just have a few things to say and I will be on my way. First of all I hate most of you. You all feel so entitled to your opinions and that is absolutely fine. However, your opinions are mostly wrong and you just love whatever new comes your way. I've never seen such a group of useless fucks like yourselves. Now don't think I'm bitter about anything because I give 0 fucks. Now, I don't hate all of you. Some of you are very good posters and your opinions actually have some value to them. I'm mostly speaking to the majority.... Comment too long. Click here to view the full text.
Someone called this a longboard and someone else told me not to try any tricks on it. Why? Is it bad that it's only curved in the back and not the front? Think I should get some hard wheels before I try to attempt tricks and stuff?
>>753297 from what i can tell it looks pretty big, you're definitely going to have a hard time learning tricks on that. smaller wheels would be a start but ultimately you need a completely different setup for doing tricks
