You know I never really thought of martial arts as a sport....but now that you mentioned it, it makes total sense!
I used to do a bit of martial arts, but I never really got into it. I always enjoyed team sports to cover up how bad I wasAll three styles have sort of merged into this one mixed style, with focus on bjj since it's the one I have the most training in.
"Quarterstaff" is, unfortunately, closer to the current staffing levels of most schools in the U.S., by my estimation.Quarterstaff sounds like a position if the Harry Potter universe did American football
Golf has a lot of thwacking, its just terminally boring to watch or play. I know I've tried.I like staves cuz they're good for thwacking. There's just not enough excuses for a good thwack these days!
May I recommend a driving range? My dad used to take me and my brothers all the time.Golf has a lot of thwacking, its just terminally boring to watch or play. I know I've tried.
Mini-golf however is significantly more fun, but lacks the thwacks.
Yeah I've been before. It just does nothing for me, I even started to play lefty whilst there. I find the running around like a mad'n in a kick about much more cathartic.May I recommend a driving range?
Holy moly. I've actually been slowly working toward that same epiphanic state for a while now, which probably means I have yet to achieve said epiphany. Self-expression is the truest form of irony.I used to have crippling levels of anxiety over all manners of things. Then I had an epiphany, it doesn't matter what anyone else thinks. I know a lot of people think I'm mad if they only meet me for a day or so (thanks to my brother) but the ones I see every day know I'm just not afraid to do what I want to. I sing and dance at work in full view of the street, I've danced on a pole on a night out and I do all sorts of things I wouldn't have done without someone else backing me up beforehand.
It's like when I went paddle boarding. I can't surf, I'm not a particularly strong swimmer and have little to no sense of balance. I knew full well I'd be making a fool of myself. But those people aren't the ones that matter so why should it bother me, I rocked that wet-suit and fell in to my hearts content. Then an hour and a half later I felt great for doing something fun for myself.
Once you do you'll feel so much better. It makes the world so much less stressful too. I know it's a bit much for some, but most people I meet take it as an opportunity to express themselves as well. The main problem I have now is I lack a natural filter for the things I say (which is why it takes so long to write something sometimes, having to reapply a filter).Holy moly.
