Carlos and Helio were White.
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?
@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.
@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 👍
Pretty damn bummed Stipe got wobbled in the first round
Rematch should be good though
I'm not surprised. Cormier is genuinely the total package.
There may not be a rematch, with Lesnar somehow being thrust into contention.
Yeah that stuff with lesnar was stupid
How old is Lesnar now?
Just signed up for my first bjj class. I know virtually nothing. Any advice?
Tap often and if anything feels like it hurts, tap
Nobody will call you a pussy if you tap a lot as a beginner
@Pat-MA Good on you , bro.
6 months from now, you will feel like you have super powers. 💪🏼
Appreciate it guys
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.
I don't use gloves for bag work
I kind of would go against using gloves, to train your fist strength
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.
Some of my fingers are off alignment.
I mean, I don't go 100% by any means
but I'm also throwing in combos and kicks/knees/elbows
so its not exclusively handwork
but by the end of the session I have 0 pain whatsoever
Planning on the gloves. "Toughening up" ones hands is not worth a lifetime of pain and easy re injuries.
The first thing people break in a fight is their hands.
Also, as I mentioned, I'm not going 100%, am painfree, and have been doing this for about a year now.
🙄 Do what you will though
