Although I have never studied it I have been fasciated by catch wrestling myself because of the same reasons you listed @Tyler0317 as well as because of my fandom of pro wrestling as a kid and the cross over that used to exist.

@Tyler0317 I may have already said this but I think BJJ came more from catch wrestling styles in vale tudo than it did from tradionall JJ

@Deleted User mma/vale tudo has certainly had a positive effect on bjj. Keeping it rooted in practicality and effectiveness.

BJJ never had a weird kung fu death touch phase.

@Tyler0317 hey brother ... i’ve been training BJJ for over 10 years… And I really enjoyed the above comments you made about how catch wrestling is “our European martial art.” I have never thought of it that way. I’ve been training shoot- boxing for eight years solid (simultaneously) and it’s very similar to what you are describing but again I must admit that the ethnic component (tradition) was lost on me until now. Good looking out. I look forward to more passionate posts about this.

@Punisher 👍🏼

I need to take my own advice. Catch wrestling doesn't exist in my state, which I suppose is an opportunity for someone like me to make it happen.

I competed in amateur MMA for a few years, but can't really claim to be an actual martial artist.
The specialized skillset, passing down the tradition and philosophies really appeals to me.

That is something BJJ does way better than western martial arts.

Carlos and Helio were White.

2018-06-09 23:35:36 UTC  

Helio also sounds like a traditionalist or fascist here.

How do you guys do your solo martial arts practice? Where do you put it in your workout routine?

2018-06-11 19:07:53 UTC  

@Gaius Mucius Scaevola I do bag drills after my workout.

I've found that cardio after the workout reduces the DOMS(muscle soreness) the following day.

@Tyler0317 That's some great history. I'd like to learn it myself or teach it to my kids. It's disappointing that many Whites don't realize that we have our own history of martial arts, and they think it is something unique to only Asian countries.

2018-06-11 21:25:28 UTC  

@Aleis⊕ccidentalis Yeah, I thought that martial arts were rampant in Asia, but we westerners seem far more interested in this stuff than they are. I was in the Philippines for awhile, and never could find a Kali school, but western Boxing schools abounded.

I follow a Youtuber who started an MMA school in China, who points out that essentially no Chinese do Kung Fu any more. It's just a historical curiosity for them.

@Aleis⊕ccidentalis As for catch wrestling, the only instructor/affiliate system that I know of is CSW Combat Submission Wrestling, run by Erik Paulson.

good pics 👍

2018-07-08 04:58:29 UTC  

Pretty damn bummed Stipe got wobbled in the first round

2018-07-08 04:58:42 UTC  

Rematch should be good though

2018-07-08 22:54:22 UTC  

I'm not surprised. Cormier is genuinely the total package.

There may not be a rematch, with Lesnar somehow being thrust into contention.

2018-07-08 22:54:27 UTC  
2018-07-08 23:16:19 UTC  

Yeah that stuff with lesnar was stupid

2018-07-09 00:12:34 UTC  

How old is Lesnar now?

2018-07-10 00:41:14 UTC  

Just signed up for my first bjj class. I know virtually nothing. Any advice?

2018-07-10 01:22:12 UTC  

Don't panic

2018-07-10 01:22:15 UTC  

Just breathe

2018-07-10 01:22:54 UTC  

Tap often and if anything feels like it hurts, tap

2018-07-10 01:23:15 UTC  

Nobody will call you a pussy if you tap a lot as a beginner

2018-07-10 01:34:14 UTC  

Thx man

2018-07-10 01:41:44 UTC  

@Pat-MA *Stick with it!*

2018-07-10 01:42:58 UTC  

@Pat-MA Good on you , bro.

6 months from now, you will feel like you have super powers. 💪🏼

2018-07-10 01:46:50 UTC  

Appreciate it guys

2018-07-10 14:46:57 UTC  

Anyone here box? What brand of gloves do you use for bag work? It seems like everything under $100 is Pakistani made and uses the same pattern.

2018-07-10 14:54:10 UTC  

I don't use gloves for bag work

2018-07-10 14:59:46 UTC  

@Svat - NY I use fairtex

2018-07-10 15:04:16 UTC  

I kind of would go against using gloves, to train your fist strength

2018-07-10 15:34:37 UTC  

Don’t not wear bag gloves. Believe me when I tell you that the long term trauma to your joints and wrists will have you regretting that decision in a few short years. My hands are in a constant state of inflammation. I have several bone spurs. My wrists need constant massaging.
