30 Common Martial Arts Training Mistakes -- Turtle Press         

You should think very carefully about every one of these and if your school does any of them, get the fuck outta there.
I personally believe that none are excusable.
I currently have a minor split lip, my forearms, thighs, shins etc are covered in bruises from training last night. If the idea of getting hurt from training is scary to you, don’t train in self defence. Anything that happens in class is not going to anywhere near as bad as what happens in real life. You need to be hit, to be submitted, to be battered, to a degree, to know how you’ll cope if you ever get hit for real.
How you train is how you fight.
I have trained at ‘multistyle camps’ with guys who were black belts and above in karate and TKD, even other Kung Fu styles and these guys are brilliant at what they do but when they came up against myself or any other member of my club they learned how little those crisp uniforms and flashy high kicks did against determined, aggressive, non-compliant attackers.
Don’t waste your time learning “flowery fists and embroidery kicks”. If you ever find yourself in a situation that you have to defend yourself you will fight how you have trained. If you trained for points or showy moves you will get seriously injured or worse.

I love seeing people walking by with little smiles on their face because something small happened that made them happy. Maybe they got a cute text, maybe they got laid, maybe they killed a man. You will never know.

why does this have 32k notes? it’s just a picture of a knife in a ranch bottle, is there some unspoken joke that 32 thousand people share? what is going on here, i dont get it. it’s just a fucking picture of a knife in a ranch bottle. is there some spiritual connection people have to this picture? is there some ominous and mystical reasoning that this has 32 thousand notes? do people reblog this because it makes them look like some indie blogger? or is there just something funny to this? someone please explain

no one tell him

Sad, sad news. Panna Rittikrai, director of “Ong Bak” and “Ong Bak 2” as well as Tony Jaa’s mentor and the fight choreographer for aforementioned films and "The Protector," died yesterday at the age of 53.

Rittikrai didn’t just help reinvent Thai cinema; he reinvented action cinema in general. His choreography, as we as his stunt team single-handedly changed martial arts action in a time when the genre was on a pretty grm decline.
As well as directing and acting, he starred in a number of films too. Most notably, he was the chief bad guy in 2010’s “Bangkok Knockout.”

It’s so sad that a true icon has died at such a young age. I can’t help but feel like he had so much more to give. He was just so innovative and a landmark action director as for as stunts go.
Rittikrai died due to complications involving liver and kidney failure. Doctors also discovered that he had a brain tumor.

Rest in peace to a true modern legend and incredible talent.

Extinct Tasmanian Tiger DNA Brought Back to Life
A genetic fragment of Australia’s extinct Tasmanian tiger has been successfully brought back to life by Melbourne researchers.
Dr Seymour Walbert and Professor Julia Svenmaker from the University of Melbourne have inserted part of a gene involved in bone growth from the fabled animal into the Tasmanian Devil, a genetically close relative.
“This is the first time that DNA from an extinct species has been used to induce a functional response in another living organism,” Dr Walbert, at the Department of Zoology, says. “No one has done this in a living organism before.”
Despite the latest results, Professor Svenmaker admits it is “highly unlikely” that the entire animal can be resurrected in this way.
“Even though this is a successful technological breakthrough, there may be 20 years separating us from being able to reproduce a living species of the extinct animal”, claims the specialist. “But this is the closest we’ve ever been to bringing back strands of DNA into a living fetus, which is extremely encouraging for the future”.
The Tasmanian tiger or thylacine (Thylacinus cynocephalus) was a large, meat-eating native Australian marsupial that was hunted to extinction in the wild in the early 1900s. The last-known animal died in captivity in the Hobart Zoo in 1936.
