Sup /fit/, I'm picking up Aikido and boxing soon and I'm wondering what's the best workout I can do in between classes to maximize my gains?
Also, are handwrap gloves or traditional boxing gloves better for hitting a punching bag?
well demonstrations are staged, while there are some useful techniques in it you could get better training by doing jiu jitsu ( the japanese one if you're interested in traditional shit ), not bjj since it's retarded too, or you could judo or wrestling.
any of the three are good for grappling, the latter 2 especially, but japanse jiu jitsu has some weapons training and other tricks that you might find in aikido.
also boxing is better than all of them in terms of physical/fitness training and its better on da streetz
>Care to explain your thesis there
It isn't a thesis you fedora wearing faggot.
The best aikido "martial artists" out there would get wrecked by an average varsity level high school wrestler.
I heard that boxing with wraps and gloves doesn't prepare your hands for bare knuckle fighting, and that you're likely to break your hands/wrists in a street fight. Is this a myth?
the wraps stop your wrist from twisting and the gloves stop your knuckles from getting damaged so if you bare knuckle punch a dude in the face the bones in his head are gonna fuck up your hand if you're not careful, punch them with the first two knuckles on your fist. Those are the toughest.
just to be sure punch a wall with maximum strength every day for 500 times with each hand that way you'll be prepared.
don't stop if you start bleeding, hearing bones crack and especially if you fell like you fractured you wrists and bone hands, thats the sensation you fell when your hands become conditioned
I took Aikido.
I didn't do it because I wanted to get tough or be able to kick people's asses. I did it because I killed somebody once, a long time ago, and I needed some peace.
Aikido is less of a martial art and more of a therapy. I found it useful. But after I found myself no longer getting angry or sad at a drop of a pin, I decided to get into Taekwondo.
> Tries to save himself by saying that he changed martial arts.
> 2nd most faggiest martial art out there
Aikido and now taekwondo. Are you purposefully trying to get 0 respect?
A) calling someone a fedora fag for asking a simple question doesn't make you sound smarter
B) The same can be said of almost any martial arts style, it really depends on what you do with it. I'm learning aikido mostly for the footwork, the boxing is to make up for any of the drawbacks
C) dad's 4th degree in Kyokushin, completely different style. I figure if it's not his discipline and he's still endorsing it, then he might be onto something
BJJ is garbage. Some guy tried to lock me into an armbar. I twisted my arm and pinched his balls until he screamed like a little girl.
Instructor came and asked what the fuck I was doing. I said "self defense".
He threw me out.
Ex blue belt here . aikido is the biggest meme keyboards of them all . the entire system works as long as you are way faster than your opponent . then again its directed more into getting out from simple grabs rather then punches and kicks. To make it short aikido is a good material art against other aikido cucks but will fall short against somebody who can throw a punch. I was doing boxing for many years 2 and if you want to do some food sparing just stuck to it.
wraps keep your hand bones in place so they don't rattle around and get damaged. Gloves protect your knuckles and your opponent. Bareknuckle fighters relied more on bodyshots than KOs because your head is a big strong bone that can stand more punishment than your fists. If you punch someone in the head with your bare fist, you will get hurt too. The torso is soft though
A lifting program is going to affect your martial arts mostly in a negative way
You'll find that most of the workouts the martial arts fags do are cardio. I'm just starting boxing and it's fucking up my lifts big time, not sure what to do either
Just put a TKD blackbelt and a Kyokushin Blackbelt in a cage and see what happens.
I do kyokushin and I've done a few classes of TKD and man the endurance and toughness you get in Kyokushin puts TKD to shame
>that you're likely to break your hands/wrists in a street fight
You're likely to break your hands/wrists in a street fight either way, plus a bunch of other bones. You'll probably get a concussion and/or go in to a coma and die if you go looking for street fights.
You're stupid if you're trying to prepare for street fights through martial arts rather than doing the smart thing and avoiding situations that will put you in a street fight, and carrying a gun if you can't.
tl;dr here's a greentext
>you train for years in a striking art to prepare yourself for street fights
>a nigger disrespects you/your girl so you confidently challenge him to a fight knowing you have years more experience than him
>you square up and prepare to kick his ass
>his buddy hits you in the back of the head with a lead pipe
>you go to the ground
>a dozen niggers begin kicking and punching you
>one pulls out a knife and stabs you multiple times
>as you bleed to death you see the niggers begin to rape your girlfriend
Just avoid fights and carry a concealed firearm. Learn to keep your distance so they can't take it from you and shoot you with it.
>avoiding situations that will put you in a street fight
thugs can target anyone they come across. To be sure to avoid being attacked I would have to stay home after 9 pm or some shit. That would kill my social life.
>and carrying a gun if you can't.
not legal in my country of residence
>a nigger disrespects you/your girl so you confidently challenge him
I don't care about "respect" from savages and I don't have a GF. It's more likely they'll beat me up as a male bonding activity and to raise their status in the group than because I provoked them.
>Aikido and boxing
Two philosophically very different styles, master one before doing both or you will confuse yourself and be good at neither.
Personally I would go for something like Jiu Jitsu which uses elements of both (if the lineage is Japanese).
Also handwrap gloves on a bag? What the fug? Just get some bag gloves! Your wrist will thank you for it and you will be able to hit the bag harder.
>I don't care about "respect" from savages and I don't have a GF.
But I bet you have a fedora.
>I'm just starting boxing and it's fucking up my lifts big time, not sure what to do either
I'm doing both and so far no problem in 3 weeks
I have my compounds at intermediate level, and I'm also cutting
I switched from 3x5 to 2x5 max weight followed by 2x20 of lightweights, it does wonders considering we do physical condition at the end of training or when you fuck up things up and you gotta do 100 push ups, jumping jacks and shit like that
one thing I've noticed though is my left shoulder gets tired earlier than supposed to but I just gotta push through the "pain" and burning
