I used to do MMA, a self defense system made by a teacher of mine that mixed ju-jitsu, boxing, aikido, taek-wondo, karate, judo, and other shits. He would also teach me how to take care of someone trying to slash you with a knife and people trying to charge you with batons or people aiming at you with handguns. Shit was rad and i learnt a lot. However, i decided to stop, and i am here to take advise on that.
One of the reasons why i decided to stop was because i felt that i was not improving anymore. Does anyone that did any kind of martial art felt that? that after... Comment too long. Click here to view the full text.
He may have taught you how to do it, but to determine whether or not you can do it, you have to actually do it, in sparring, or in self defense.
It's possible to do really difficult shit, be making a hoop from across the whole court, those things football players do in those self promotional commercial things, being an undisputed Kickboxing champion or MMA champion, hitting someone with a flashy Taekwondo Kick, or pulling off some aikido technique. But it takes skill, which takes practice, all kinds of practice. Not just technique, not just drills, not just... Comment too long. Click here to view the full text.

It's another to actually dedicate yourself to something, even if it means doing hard work.
>>886934 We usually fight the other quite often, Ive practiced for 2 years, and our teacher used to force us to do the same move over and over and over again. Usually 20 of all kicks per leg, had to do it timed with him (he was late 40's but he was fucking quick, strong, and still good lookng) or he would punish us.
That's the problem ive had tho. Whenever we would mock-fight, it was done with protective shit, timed, never to the head, etc.
I never found out, and i still dont know, how big or small my... Comment too long. Click here to view the full text.
Looking for an entrance. Shane Mcmahon comeing out of his car, Ziggler trying to say "hi I'm Dolph Ziggler" but only getting his jacket, Shane saying "hit my music" and then going on stage. There was probably stuff inbetween there, but thats what I remember. Badass entrance!!!! Anyone have it or at least know the date of the raw show?

Do you guys ever discuss the sport of weightlifting here (Olympic-style weightlifting)?
Do you guys ever use the "quick lifts" (Snatch, clean + jerk and variants) to train for other sports, or for fun?
I "come from" /fit/ and have only really started doing snatches and clean + jerk recently. But weightlifting is always a sport that has interested me. The weightliftimg general there is practically dead, it's sad. The sport is not as popular as powerlifting in the slightest. I think maybe here would be a better place to discuss?
Hey guys, I'm really interested in getting some boxing training, but I don't know how to go about it. I've looked locally, but I can't seem to find any gyms, and the one I did find seems to be some run down place in the ghetto.
any help? anything to expect? what's a reasonable price to pay? I've never been in a fight before and I'm mostly doing this to learn some self defense and discipline. also, boxing seems pretty cool.
>>885678 Anyone who does boxing won't be able to overstate the importance of having a good coach during your foundation stages. You'll more than likely do more harm than good if you teach yourself. Is there a gym that runs a fitbox/boxercise class? I knew a good Muay Thai dude who used to run one at the gym I used to go to so I'd do padwork with him after he wrapped up his Saturday morning class in addition to my twice a week training. As for price, I don't really know, I used to go to a $6 a session... Comment too long. Click here to view the full text.
