Re: Martial Arts Experiences Discussion Thread

Thanks Jim, per your request I'll refrain from calling you a warrior, was just illustrating that people who voluntarily apply that kind of discipline to themselves tend to share that military mind. Nothing to prove but prepared to [quote by General "Mad Dog" Mattis]. I won't mention his o...

Re: Martial Arts Experiences Discussion Thread

Thanks Jim, you're a true gentleman, usually the sign of a warrior monk/poet. A zen mind in a well maintained body, always striving for peace but si vis pacem, para bellum... and from the ones I've seen there's a lot of preemptive strikes like you say, when performed correctly and with ill intent w...

Re: Martial Arts Experiences Discussion Thread

The Legendary Speed of Ryan Garcia I only recently heard of Ryan Garcia, and I’ve come to like him. Even though he has a big presence on social media, he can back it all up. His raw speed is phenomenal; at his quickest, it looks like undercranking (sped-up) photography. I’ve only seen a few guys wi...

Re: 1 year of keto dieting results

Really more like about 7 months of hardcore strict keto and then 5 months of lazy keto where I gained back as much as 17lbs from my lowest but I've fluctuated at around a 60lb loss. I started on November 7th 2020 at 245 pounds and hit my lowest back in June 2021 at 172 pounds and currently sit lazi...

Re: So what's the top contender for all around "super steel" these days?

Thanks for the suggestions guys, here is the updated list, not yet per mention since that would take me too long. If anyone feels like doing a count I would be more than happy to include them. We're up to 45 different ones, including some (not so super) steels that were mentioned in reference. (Supe...

Re: Martial Arts Experiences Discussion Thread

Must someone “learn it all?” You often see YouTube comments as well as articles, where people say you can’t learn just one martial art of way of fighting; that you MUST train in many styles to be ‘a complete fighter.’ “Must” is a big word. How many people in the world have the interest, the time, t...

Re: Martial Arts Experiences Discussion Thread

Thanks Jim, like you haven't done judo for decades so have forgotten names and such, also love some of the sneaky sweeps, pretty brutal even on a tatami, but when applied to a street/concrete/curb environment it's no wonder some of these techniques have since become illegal. We're taking the dogs o...

Re: Spyderco Photo of the Week Contest!

This one took me a little time. First I had to pick all of the lint out of my knife, then I had to rub dirt all over my tires, just to make it look like I use both of these tools. :winking-tongue It's not cuz city slickers don't have farms to tend to that we don't get sheet done. :winking-tongue I ...
