>What boots should I get? It is extremely important to get boots that fit you well and to have them heat moulded. Therefore, it is very important to go to a professional bootfitter (not just a ski shop, but specifically a bootfitter). For a list of reputable bootfitters, refer to epicski.com/wiki/boot-fitters-on-epicski You can also consider getting custom footbeds for increased comfort and performance. If you are a beginner this is not that important (though getting boots from a bootfitter is), but if you are an advanced-expert skier it will make a big difference.

>What bindings should I get? The most important things to consider with bindings are DIN range and brake width. Your DIN should be around the middle of your binding's DIN range. For example, if you ski with a DIN of 7, a 4-12 binding would be good for you. A 1-7 or a 7-16 would be bad. If you don't know your DIN, look up a DIN chart. The brake width should be approximately equal to the waist of the ski. It's better for the brake to be a little smaller than a little bigger (ski shop techs can bend the brakes when they mount the bindings), but if you go more than 7mm or so smaller the brakes might not fit well. Going up to about 10mm wider on the brakes is alright too as long as you don't carve really aggressively.

>>721003 Been doing no-gi BJJ(that counts as sub wrasslin right?) for about two years now. Everytime I face a wrestler I always get mauled. I managed to sneak in a submission here and there, but I never won any positioning.
Granted they've probably been wrestling their whole life while I started in my late 20s.
What are some basic wrestling drills/conditioning that I can do? Or actually what kind of drills do you wrestle do day in and day out?

>>711635 Low psyche tbh... I dont like route comps at the best if times, but seeing a group of pros basically do intervals at high speed, its basically training.
I did enjoy watching the nice normie lady try to interview the permabaked D.Woods/D.Graham combo...
>>711727 Hopefully no olympics. Esp as the IFSC tried to get a climbing triathlon where they had to do boulder, lead and speed, so no specialists could win. And who the fuck wants to watch people mash out... Comment too long. Click here to view the full text.
>>698502 Because en are fundamentally better at everything which doesn't require manipulation, back-stabbing, mood swings and asking which x you prefer then sulking because they wanted the other one after all.
So in less than a year, I plan on becoming a vagrant and traveling the world with nothing but my backpack. While I do this, I will obviously not be able to attend regular martial arts classes, but I do want to continue to train and grow as a martial artist. My question is, what would be the best way to do that? I figure I'd be able to enter amateur fights every once and a while to maintain my skills, but how can I continue learn more?
Hey /asp/ I'm hoping maybe you can give me some guidance. I'm a big fan of super-heroes and fictionalized martial arts, and I'd really like to "get into" that sort of thing. But I'm not sure what I should do.
I know that I want to be able to defend myself well, and also deal some damage, move quickly, and be agile. So it would seem parkour is what I need to learn, right? What else? A martial art seems like something else I should develop, but I don't know which one(s) or how to choose.
I don't wanna get super... Comment too long. Click here to view the full text.
As an aside, i should mention that I'm not completely, out of shape, I'm 6'0" and I weigh about 160 right now (working on losing some weight; my "goal" is 145, but I don't know how reasonable that is in practice) I bicycle often, but I don't have super thighs.
Boxers can break your neck , knock you out, smash your skull, or crack your ribs with just one punch.
BJJ is a shit tier martial art for realistic self defense. First of all 90% of street fights happen with multiple aggressors. You do not want to be hugging a guy on the floor, whilst his friend stomps your head.
You want to stay on your feet and move around, always being aware of surroundings.
Fights happen on concrete, Which is a bad place to be rolling around on the floor with someone.
Choking out a lone aggressor would be attempted murder. Breaking... Comment too long. Click here to view the full text.
