I don't own any of these pictures whatsoever. All pictures are found on Flickr and other various sites. Free running and parkour pics will also be posted up. Feel free to suggest or submit anything.
What are somethings I can practice to jump higher??
well, first component is having strong legs, you can figure that part out. Another piece is technique, be light and push off your toes. Like anything else to get better at something just do it. Jump up onto something elevated and move higher and higher

Here’s How the UFC’s First Female MMA Fight Went, and Why It’s Been a Long Time Coming - via The Mary Sue
On Saturday night, both women entered the Octagon for a five-round, championship battle. Almost immediately, Carmouche had Rousey in trouble. A rear-naked choke turned into an ugly neck crank. It looked as though Rousey’s run as champion might come to an end but Rousey toughed it out, escaped, and they went to the ground. With only eleven seconds left in the first round, Rousey maneuvered Carmouche into an armbar and ended the fight—retaining her Bantamweight belt and her streak of consecutive first round armbar submissions…
Dana White, who has always been concerned with whether or not there were enough female fighters or public interest to constitute a women’s division said, “This is, without a doubt, the most media attention we’ve ever had leading up to a fight,” and afterward came the announcement that White had signed ten female fighters to the UFC with five more on the way.
It looks like, thanks to Rousey and Carmouche, women have finally arrived in the UFC and they’re here to stay.
About fucking time, and FUCK YEAH.
Good gravy! I might actually start watching UFC fights again.
(That armbar is brutal. Don’t fuck with judoka.)
Hey everyone, im a new co-admin here on this glorious blog
you can follow my blog here ( martial arts and philosophy) http://martial-arts-spirit.tumblr.com/
Made a decision on stance-power side forward, weight 50-50, arms just below shoulder level. RIGHT HANDED: Left arm bent 90 degrees at elbow, 45 degrees up (from parallel to ground), elbow kept close to ribs. Right arm bent 120 degrees at elbow, palm facing out, humerus nearly parallel to floor.
I’ve chosen this stance because it offers a lot of adaptability. It’s easy to transition to from a RBSD fence, and it’s a comfortable stance (for me at least) that offers serious defensive possibilities. I’m relying heavily on my fencing experience here with the power side forward, but fortune favors the bold (and it worked for Bruce, didn’t it?).
J. O. Combative System
So first post for the combat system-hand positioning.
I’ve given a lot of consideration as to how I want to set up the hand positioning, and I’ve settled on a bit of a hybrid grip from everything I’ve studied. For lack of a better term, I’m calling it “Pistol Hand”.
It allows for quick transitions to multiple grips, as explained in the captions.
I’m open to any and all input, especially because I don’t have too much training in Mantis, so I may be using it incorrectly. Please leave any input/comments/criticism in my ask box
So I’ve decided on a way to try and keep myself from going totally insane while I put my social life on hiatus.
I’m going to start to compile everything I’ve learned from my martial art training and develop my own “Jeet Kune Do”. For those of you who don’t fully understand the concept of JKD, it is not one set martial art and more specifically not the specific mix Bruce Lee developed. Jeet Kune Do is a philosophy and a lifestyle. As he said:
Adapt what is useful, reject what is useless, and add what is specifically your own.
That’s the mentality I plan to bring to my Jeet Kune Do. So far, I plan to incorporate as much of what I’ve learned as I can. So far, I have quite a bit to pick from:
- Muay Thai
- Krav Maga
- Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu
While I have by no means mastered any of these arts, I have trained and educated myself on enough of them to develop something that works for me. And I already have begun. I just haven’t written it down. I’ve brought a bit of different flavors to each of the different arts I’ve studied, and look forward to melting everything together. It may be a bit rough around the edges to start, but I’m hoping that, down the road when I’m an old man, I can pass this on and begin to teach students.
Here’s what I’d like to accomplish with it:
- Effective street defense
- MMA applications (competitive)
- Mostly empty hand, some knife work, some stick work (most likely rattan)
- Adaptability. I want to keep it constantly evolving.
This is a serious question to my followers who train martial arts (I know there are a few and Blair-I’m hoping you’ll be interested in this as well)-does anyone want to contribute to this? I’m looking for anything-feedback, ideas, insight, philosophy, (if you live close enough) sparring partners? If you’re interested in helping in ANY way whatsoever, please send me an ask or contact me outside Tumblr (if we’re close enough that you have my cell/email/skype/facebook/whatever). That’s all for now, I suppose. Thanks for reading, guys!
Hey guys, I hate to whore myself out like this, but I’m also realistic. There’s no way I can singlehandedly develop a combat system, and would like the help of anyone who wants to contribute in any way, no matter how large or small. So if you’re interested in hearing more about the project, please drop me an ask here. Thanks y’all, and please look forward to seeing more content from me on the page!
