Anybody wear their gi to the gym for a quick workout after karate sessions?
You'd be surprised how many compliments my gi has gotten me, and whichever station I'm on I have no fear of lunks attempting to fuck with me, because they know.
Gi bros assemble.
Keep it in the dojo. Martial arts is great, but ya gotta hide your powerlevels man
Best gi coming through
No, I don't go to the gym dressed like a fucking autist in boxing gear or some oversized cloth with a shitty belt around my waist. It screams autism and honestly screams "come fuck with me." People view that as a challenge wearing it around in public.
Dude, the pants are okay, but take off the jacket and put on a t-shirt or just wear your rash guard. If you're not wearing a rash guard because karate isn't grappling you're missing out by the way. It's amazing. You take it off and the sweat comes with it and you're fucking clean!
Also, if you have the energy for strength training after class, your dojo and/or style is shit. You should be limping home to scrub the blood out of your clothes.
There is a guy who comes and wears an orange beIt. He's Iike six and a haIf feet but his Iegs are Iike 2 and a haIf feet from foot to upper thigh. Fucking weird when he's there IiteraIIy cannot stop Iooking at them.
What IeveI is orange?
hey bro, what would be a good way to take down a 230 lb roidhead who has abit of boxing practice when i'm a 150lb natty with abit of boxing practice as well? weight class ain't gonna mean shit when we inevitably get to beating eachother down
It's pretty low. A serious McDojo might have something like,
Those might be in slightly different orders and some might be omitted. There also might be stripes on them. Generally really commercial schools have a fuck-ton of belts and stripes so they can charge students promotion and testing fees constantly. Others don't give a shit about ranks and might just go white-yellow-blue-green-brown-black, or even in a few cases I've seen white-black, but the latter are usually up their own asses about how hardcore they think they are and are just as shitty as the ones with ten belts and three stripes per belt.
Fuck, that was a rant. Sorry.
I used to play krotty but I grew up.
I absolutely agree. It just gives a message saying "pls fuck my boi pussy and kick my ass."
Depends. Because weight classes actually have a gigantic impact on the power of the punch. And say you're an out boxer. Of he closes the gap on you he could waste you, if he lifts heavy and has power to back his muscle up. If he's like Rich Piano he might've left humanity behind but his strength surely hasn't. It comes down to, are you both equally skilled, and does he have strength to go behind that muscle. Of the answer is yes to both he would more than likely be able to best you. Speed doesn't mean much when someone is several weight classes above you and hits you with 2-3x your punching power.
eh fair enough. thanks for the input. he's got the muscle mass for sure and a loud mouth included, but i don't think he has the strength. guess ill figure that out soon enough, cheers

I was in a similar situation years ago when I was 150lbs and had just starting out in boxing and actually won! (Now I'm a 220lb roider with ALOT of boxing experience haha). Hopefully this will help you.
Anyway I had just left from training to go do my groceries, and was wearing a t-shirt of my boxing gym. This massive guy with tattoos crawling up his neck called me out. He said he was from a different boxing gym and told me to square up. Said he wanted to see what I was made off. Keep in mind this was back when I was a small fry with little experience and we were in a shopping center.
I was reluctant to fight him seeing as he was half a foot taller and around 60lbs heavier, but he wouldn't drop it, so I gave in and put my fists up to fight. (Right out the front of the grocery store! Ikr!)
At the start I kept my distance trying to defend his attacks, hoping he was only joking and would stop and say "yea nice kid keep up the work" or something like that. Unfortunately that wasn't what the guy wanted at all, he was coming at me swinging. I was dodging some blows but not others. I knew I was in trouble, so I sidestepped right as he jabbed with his left. I skirted around the back of him and pulled out my pipebomb. Poor sucker didn't even see it coming. I heard he lives in a wheelchair now.
YOOOOOOOOOO, This nig right here, he knows.
Wing chun...non autist edition.
Jesus, this has got to bait, If you actually do, then OP why the hell would you do this. Do you have more aspergers and autism than everyone on both /asp/ (which coincidentally is where a post anything like this should probably be though your post would be to shit to even put in /trash/) and /fit/ combined. I train full contact Shotokan and I always changed out of my gi before I went anywhere if I did at all, and of all the places I'd go I wouldnt go to the gym, to train, after training. You can only do yourself no good there. You just trained you should rest and if you go to do any workout you at least wait until later, like the next day.
This anons right you be busy washing your go to have it ready for next time and be too tired from pushing yourself to retardedly overdo it
Daughter is an orange belt in tkd after a few months, I keep paying for it because it builds confidence and keeps her interested in non-degenerate things but it's 100% obvious the whole thing is about money and choreography
Sorry you went to a shitty mcdojo and failed to have the way of a man beaten into you
In non-krotty karate wearing a rashy is rather a faux-pas as it's essentially saying "I'm not planning to train hard enough to stay warm so I need an extra layer".
I'm sure you know better than a 9th dan who trained under Mas Oyama though.
I'd like to see the smug look on your faces when no amount of training in the world can prepare you for the raw fury a single pipe bomb contains, and how hard it would be for you and your big muscles to move in time to escape the explosive force a well placed pipe bomb can produce. Nothing beats a pipebomb.
Rationally speaking, if you used any even deflagration agents, not even detonation, you would most likely be killed before the signal could even Traverse the optic nerve, assuming you were destroyed in the blast and not just perforated to bleed out.
>a Karate style
Does it retardedly rustle your jimmies o or something. It's a legit style and when trained full contact is very good.But please continue to add nothing of value to this conversation
Nothing pisses me off more than the /fa/ gis that are around these days. Fucking bjj hipsters.
>is it comfortable
>will it tear easily
There are literally the only factors that matter in a gi.
I can tell you don't do martial arts. Shotokan is basically the only non-shit style apart from Kyokushin.
It was the first style, and the only style for so long. Most other "karate" is just an autistic splinter group of Shotokan. Also the only real "style" of merit (Assuming you're JKA, if not, gtfo). The name "shotokan" quite literally says it all.
Yeah pyjama tag is totally legit
List of not-bullshit karate
>kudo/daido-juku (although whether that can still be considered karate is up for debate)
14 years TKD (which i regret)
2 years MMA
A little judo here and there.
8 months~ kudo at the head school in Ikebukero.
>It was the first style, and the only style for so long
Actually it was the first Japanese style. Karate was founded in the Ryukyu kingdom (now okinawa). The original styles were shuri-te, naha-te and tomari-te.
WHile that's definitely true, Okinawin Te was closer to wrestling that actual karate. Also nowhere near as structured. Although it was a precurser. Fonakoshi made it much more structured, and the karate we more or less know today.
>implying Shotokan isn't full contact like those styles listed nor can it be trained that way
>implying `pyjama tag` isn't just shit dojoKarate
Just how retarded are you?
And all those styles and not one of them is Shotokan or at the very least Karate Way to generalize and nutride, especially about a style you've never trained in. If your still spewing some `hurr dirt best style shit you`ve clearly proven you haven't bothered to do any research into or properly understand Karate and haven't learned a damn thing about martial arts
Pyjama tag? Lol.
Anyway, I've never heard of any of those styles bar kyokushin, which tells me they probably don't have a big enough following to not be shit. Shotokan is the first japanese style. The JKA is the biggest karate organisation in the world. We've tested it. One of our guys is a top MMA fighter.
Anyway, if you really wanna exchange times, I've been doing shotokan for almost 11 years, with 2 years of kendo as well.
Sounds more like an issue of ignorance on your part then as seidokaikan founded K1 and enshin the sabaki challenge. It would probably benefit you to move outside your echo-chamber. I thought TKD was amazing until I got my jaw dislocated my first spar when I started mma.
So getting tuned up in MMA means you can't get your shit rocked in any other art and instantly disqualifies a completely separate art? You don't have any right to accuse anyone of ignorance, and he's right. If you look into a subject properly quit acting like you know anything about it
>Implying I didn't tell her the class finishes 30 minutes later than it actually does
She'll never find out
