@Deleted User How hard did you used to go on bag work?

2018-07-10 17:37:45 UTC  

I'm not trying to second guess you or your experience, just adding my own.

2018-07-10 18:02:55 UTC  

@Deleted User not overly hard, but I’ve probably done it for a much longer time than you have. That said, my hands were hurting in maybe my second or third year

2018-07-12 02:33:53 UTC  

@Svat - NY @Deleted User Agreed.

I fractured my right pinky in sparring while wearing MMA gloves.

My pinky is now crooked and my knuckle is double the size of the others from the calcium deposit.

You don't want crooked fingers! Wear bag gloves! 😉

Yeah I agree with @Tyler0317 definitely get bag gloves I use 16oz and double wrap my hands. And when sparring I use 12oz. Ringside are well made gloves but pricey.

2018-07-14 21:03:07 UTC  

Most important is to wrap your hands right

2018-07-14 21:03:33 UTC  

I didn't for the first years I got into it and today I can feel it

When teaching others I point out that 'Humans aren't built to punch'.

If we were, we'd have bony clubs for hands. Our hands are relatively brittle, and comprised of ~20 small bones.

Our hands are built for dexterity, for fine motor skills, for grasping.

While striking can be effective, precautions must be taken.

Anyone here familiar with Zendo-Kai?

2018-08-18 01:34:30 UTC  

@Whitelash Is it related to the glorious Rex Kwon Do?

2018-08-18 05:56:57 UTC  

That’s what I’m afraid of. Its the only “combat sports” in my local area

2018-08-18 11:02:09 UTC  

@Whitelash It's worth checking out. Worst case is you waste a couple hours and don't go back.

2018-08-18 15:17:17 UTC  

Something is better than nothing. You should always pick the place that's easiest to form a habit of going to. Too many people focus really hard on the style of martial art, when the reality is knowing and training any martial art puts you above someone who has never trained. Check it out, it looks legit from what I read

All kidding aside, there is value to be had is something as bland as tai chi.

Anything that gets you up and moving, makes you accustomed to using your body and gives you confidence is beneficial.@Whitelash

Would anybody be interested in getting patches to put on a gi with this logo?

2018-09-01 15:14:44 UTC  

It is the patch of Lauri Torni.

2018-09-01 15:16:56 UTC  

He fought against Commies his whole life and the design looks like the dragons eye in a way. DM me if you want one for free. I will order in about a week. To get the volume right for the order, hit the react below. @everyone

2018-09-01 15:17:24 UTC  

Patch Check

2018-09-02 18:42:53 UTC  

@Sam Anderson I'd buy that

2018-09-02 22:05:57 UTC  

Probably gonna order between 30-50. Its not like they go bad or anything.

2018-09-02 22:12:26 UTC  

I’ll take one Sam.

The guy on ground must’ve gone into the guard when that kid likely fell on him because that looked like a hard hit

2018-10-07 18:20:25 UTC  

just got done seeing this one

2018-10-07 18:20:29 UTC  

god damn

2018-10-07 19:19:41 UTC  

Was wild

So... a buddy (of ours) who I’ve trained BJJ with for over a decade (he actually red pilled me) and I are putting together a “mma” system of self defense.... for example ... we want to focus on self defense that is applicable without wraps and gloves (we’re avoiding a lot of hooks and knock out power strikes… We are keeping our hands lateral when striking) .... techniques that are usable in real life situations... that avoids going to the ground and playing a strategic Brazilian jujitsu game for over 30 minutes… Because as we all know getting kicked in the head doesn’t feel very good… So we are working a system that involves lots of elbows, knees, head butts and big body mechanics… I encourage everyone to look at the Marine Corps martial arts program… Or simply called MCMAP @Deleted User .… I bring it up because I would really like some input from all of you… Techniques and strategies that you all think are important to incorporate etc.… i am absolutely open to all styles even though we are leaning more wrestling, boxing-ish....I’d like to streamline this curriculum... write it down and distribute it .....and make it accessible for our wives, girlfriends(hope they don’t meet) and children...
Input appreciated...
Thx Fam

@Punisher Coming to Denver? You could host a class there.
