Thoughts after my first BJJ class:
- Incredibly fun
- Nice to be able to practice with people from the get-go
- Much less tiring/physically demanding than your average boxing class
I'd say I recommend anyone who's hesitant about martial arts to give BJJ a shot, but it's also very complex and intimidating, and I do feel like someone who wants to see measurable progress would probably fare better with a striking art.
In retrospect, it was rather ignorant of me to go as far as to call Mexico "a shithole", or to say the US is "literally what I imagine he'll to be like, but real."
The reality of the situation is that all of society sucks, and I'm making it my life's goal to move to a tiny cabin in the mountains, where I can practice martial arts in peace.
A well thrown left hook is a thing of beauty, and Óscar Valdez is a masterclass at them. CW for a brutal knockdown.
@seldo As a little kid who grew up when this industry was still booming and maybe lost his allowance once or twice to it, this was a fascinating read. Thank you.
Mage players are nerds. I was born with two fists and was too busy fucking to learn how to read.
@citrustwee I hate you for showing me this.
Just @ me
(In case it's not obvious, I'm going through my Steam library trying to find games to play, so expect a lot of these kinds of tweets in the coming days.)
"Momodora: Reverie Under the Moonlight" provides one of the most authentic Metroid-esque experiences in recent memory, while still remaining creative and innovative enough to maintain an identity of its own. It's a fantastic game I can't wait to play more of, and it makes me sad it so often gets spoken over in "best Indie game" discussions.
I tried to play it again after having abandoned it a long time ago and now I remember why I stopped playing in the first place. The game is amongst the most boring JRPG-types I've ever experienced. And the 2012-Newgrounds tier jokes don't help it a lot.
Mexico's chosen one. Videogames and Boxing, with a bit of software engineering sprinkled through.
Never forget why you started in the first place.
