So... Horse stance. Effective way of building strength and root or waste of time?

Shorin Ryu

Hey there /asp/. I'm joining a good little dojo this week that teaches shorin ryu. Any opinions on the style that don't involve mma matchups? Also, since that's a limited topic, give me some greenhorn dojo stories, your own or those observed.

I'm interested in learning German Longsword, and I'm wondering if anyone knows of a resource where I can find a society or more experienced individual in my area? I'm not aware of anything in my area (Upstate South Carolina) that has anything in the realm of European martial arts, even olympic style fencing, other than SCA, and that is less regular and more esoteric than I would like. I appreciate any and all suggestions or leads.

I'm guessing if there's any place for this thread on 4chan, it's here. I have been training Jiu Jitsu for about two years. As far as skin infections go I was incident free until I visited a dirty MMA gym, and trained there for the day. I ended up getting ringworm, which I thought wasn't going to be a big deal. I went to the doctor, got a cream, put it on twice a day, washed my bedding every single day, avoided contact with anything and anyone, and nothing worked. I went back and got two different creams, and things just got worse. I now have 8 infected areas and nothing seems to be working. I have no health insurance, and have already shelled out about 400-500 dollars in doctors fees on this stupid shit. My doctor wants me to come in pay a 60 dollar visit cost, and then pay over 100 dollars for bloodwork, and then play 100 dollars for Lamisil tabs IF my bloodwork comes back okay. So my question is how toxic are Lamisil tabs REALLY? I'm a 26 year old healthy male that drinks like 6-7 times a year if that so why the hell do I need bloodwork besides liability, and getting paid? Should I just get on the internet and order tabs online? Anyone else have success doing this?

Hey /asp/, I was looking to buy a new contact fire twirling staff, but have only owned one staff before and don't have the know-how for exact measurements / how it should be weighted etc. Do any of you have any tips on how long/wide/heavy a good fire-twirling staff should be or how it should be weighted and which materials to make it out of?

So I started watching curling thinking it'd be funny/stupid but I actually got really into it. Does /asp/ know how I could get into curling when it's not the Olympics?

So, any judo players on here? It's my first visit to /asp/, and I'm coming because I have my first competition coming up. As such I was wondering about other people's experiences with martial arts competitions if not judo in particular. Additionally, I'd be grateful for any advice. I have a little dabbling experience in a number of martial arts over the years, but I've never got very far with any of them. I'm hoping judo is the one that will stick.

Juggling?

Juggling? 17 posts and 2 image replies omitted. Click to view.
I'm gonna go out on a limb and ask: Are any jugglers lurking around here? It's become just as much a sport as anything else here. So general juggling thread? Sorry for the shit picture.

What is this arm piece from?

What is this arm piece from? 14 posts and 1 image replies omitted. Click to view.
Would anybody happen to know what type of gloves these are from? I figure probably martial arts of some kind, but I have no idea. I am not too familiar with martial arts, and was talking about this picture with a friend. It looks to me something with minimal foam, probably with a plastic piece for protection. Any help would be appreciated in pointing me towards hand gear similar.

DMX vs. ZimZam

Okay, I'm sure at least some of you guys have heard of this since everyone from /pol/ to /r9k/ to /sp/ has been talking about it. http://www.dailymail.co.uk/news/article-2552213/Rapper-DMX-confirmed-fight-George-Zimmerman-bizarre-celebrity-boxing-match-promises-urinate-face-wins.html Apparently George Zimmerman and rapper DMX are going to duke it out in celebrity boxing. Everybody seems to be weighing in on it, but I think /asp/ is the only board that actually somewhat knows what the fuck we're talking about when it comes to boxing. It's going to be three rounds, and all proceeds will go to charity. Oddly enough, fighting was Zimmerman's idea and he wanted to challenge Kanye West or The Game before DMX was picked. OUR TALE OF THE TAPE JOE DMX: >black and therefore good at boxing >has probably killed someone >~5'8" >~180 lbs >43 years old >promises to break every rule in boxing to win >promises to piss on Zimmerman's face if victorious >Stops, drops, shuts 'em down, and opens up shop Zimmerman: >Hispanic and therefore good at boxing >has definitely killed someone >~5'7" >~185 lbs >30 years old >Has experience boxing >Can't be flimflammed Who's gonna win, /asp/? How long will the fight go and how will it end? Everyone else is just bullshitting and speculating but I feel like people here could actually predict this one pretty accurately if they wanted to. Gimme your Vegas odds, /asp/, how's it gonna end and who's gonna win?

>sports anyway, I've been juggling for a while and while I'm too impatient and not skilled enough to learn HARDCORE juggling tricks, I've learnt a couple and wanted to find something else, to become you know, a jack of all trades. I remember I really liked yoyos as a kid, the designs changed from that time so - is pic related a good place to start? They kinda look like buttplugs.

Alright /asp/, I've moved to a muay thai gym recently and how the fuck do I stop this shit from happening. The place I used to train had those foam puzzle-piece mats, this place has those covered, rectangle ones. The blisters at the start were bearable but this is a fucking killer, I can barely go running on this foot much less train. Do I just need to harden up or is there some bizarre thailandese trick to it? Also martial arts injuries general I guess
