Indeed, DO NOT trust this thing. I had this very hook two years back, and a friend and I went out climbing shit with it every once in a while. One night the metal of the hook (specifically, the threaded part at the top) SNAPPED IN HALF as I was climbing it. I was only ~3 feet above the ground at the time, so no harm done, but not everyone this happens to will be so lucky. I weighed ~140lb (63.5kg) at the time.

It's fairly obvious that it's crappy metal, anyways, because even as you're first using it you can see it bending out of shape after each climb.

Also, like others have noted, the rope is really slick and hard to grip; we used gloves we found that had a rough rubber coating on the inside so we could climb it.

If for some reason you do decide to get this, be very careful, and never ever expect it not to snap on you. The more expensive ones that shaggorama posted are worth the extra money.

Sorry for the bold caps, just trying to catch some eyes before anybody buys it.

EDIT: I can post a picture of the thing tonight if anybody is intersted. I still have it in my trunk.

More people with similar experiences with the thing on Amazon.

u/xNS5 · 19 pointsr/AskMen

I think I'd like a roman Gladius.

Edit: I want to get this for home defense some day. Small enough for more maneuverability, sharp enough to gut a motherfucker three times over, and very intimidating.

u/kazoodac · 17 pointsr/zelda

Here's the breakdown as I see it:

Barring getting a blacksmith to make you you the real deal for thousands and thousands of dollars, the best you could do would be to buy this guy's handmade replicas: He doesn't always have ebay auctions up though, and some times his work will turn up for sale elsewhere.

EDIT: Aaron of Fiberglass Blades is stopping production so that he can move on to bigger and better things. There will be a few auctions for what remains of his inventory this year, but don't expect to pay less than $1000 a piece for each item.

If you are looking for the cheaper mass produced kinds, there are still several to pick from, and even then you need to decide if what you want is more for display or if you actually intend to carry it. None of these are combat safe in any way, but some still are better than others.

A disclaimer about these links: all of these can be found from multiple sellers at multiple prices, so do your shopping! I'm using amazon for picture purposes.

The best one for display in my opinion is this one here. The hilt and blade look fantastic, and it comes with a plaque. It is not good for swinging though; it is very heavy and is most likely not full tang, aka the blade does not continue into the hilt. That said, it is a beautiful piece for the price, and I have one on my wall. It seems to be based off of a mixture of the Link to the Past and Twilight Princess Master Sword designs, as it has barbs, but is not blue in color. There are newer versions of this same sword modeled after the blue master sword and a Dark Link Variant, but I avoided the former because I don't like how the entire handle is one shade of blue. That's your call.

Next up is this one, which is probably the most common. The blade is long, but does not have that awesome shape that the above one does. In my opinion, it does not look as much like the master sword as it ought. The upside to this though it that the sheathe is the best one going in terms of mass produced pieces. I am cosplaying as link at Otakon this weekend, and will be using the sheathe from this sword, attached to this belt that was basically made for this model.

The sword I will be using is this one. I know what you are thinking. Foam? Really? Yes. This is a relatively new product and is of far better quality than I could have expected or even hoped for. It is cosplay safe, light, and the best shape/size/detail/quality replica I have found for the price. if you plan on carrying one without getting arrested, this is the one.

There is another master sword replica out there that you need should watch out for. this one looks very similar to the second one above, but you will notice the blade looks mildly different in the photos. In truth, this one is far smaller than the above one, and is also sharp as hell. Can not recommend. Check the details like blade length and width before buying.

As for the shields, there are thankfully fewer options. As mentioned above, Fiberglassblades makes an amazing one, but it's super expensive. I'd like to own his shield and sword one day, but it will not be anytime soon.

Your mass produced choices as far as I can see are this one or this one

I have the first one, and it is a decent replica for the price. It is set to be held in your left hand, though you can remove the handle, so I expect you could modify it for more accurate use. It is also ready to be hung on a wall, and looks quite nice while doing so. Older models are more flat, while newer models are more curved like traditional shields (unless mine is just warped.) The Downsides are that the strap and handle are rather flimsy. I have reinforced the one I'm using this weekend by making my own leather strap and super gluing the handle in place. This will sadly prevent me from using this shield as a display, but I have an older model for that.

As for the second one, it looks to be a newer version of an earlier and different model. I don't have experience with it, but from what I can tell it seems to be a high quality replica. That said, the model I believe it is based on was not able to be hung on a wall, had the triforce crooked, had the bird painted on and not embossed, and could only be used in your right hand. Perhaps this is why they are pushing this new version. If you get this one, please let me know how it is, because I must say it looks good from the photos.

EDIT: Another user has reported to me that this model still has the issues I had with the earlier version. Neither the Crimson Loftwing nor the Triforce are guaranteed to be accurately placed. This may vary from shield to shield, so buyer beware.

PHEW! Hope that helps!

u/arglebargle2 · 14 pointsr/washingtondc

I agree with your assessment.

I am a man who wants to get home as trouble free and intact as possible each day. It depends on the number of kids and the size of the kids I guess. The second you step in, you become the focus of their harassment.

I'd probably not step in unless they actually started beating on her.

I'm not sure what people think 1 person can do against 6 teens who don't give a crap.

And the prospect of being arrested/going to jail/being sued for any intervention also comes into the picture.

If I was riding the metro often in the stops where this kind of thing was happening regularly I'd probably buy one of these to use as a keychain.

u/some_random_kaluna · 10 pointsr/SWORDS

Gonna jump onto gabedamien's comment for a moment here.

You can buy a AISI 1045 carbon steel katana, for $50 USD off Amazon right now. THAT is how common "functional" swords are available these days.

So if you want a "true" katana, as in something that looks like one, you can draw and swing around, and proudly hang on your wall or carry around with you, there you go.

As Gabe said, art-grade nihonto with the patterned hamon and the silk wrappings and the authentic look of everything vary in price and are actually affordable to the general public. It's just like buying a painting or a sculpture, only you get a sword instead.

u/Deaddack · 10 pointsr/sanfrancisco

SF is safe enough for the most part. The most crucial advice is common sense. For instance, If you can, avoid dark alleyways at night. Try to keep to well lit areas if walking alone in the evening. Always be aware of you surroundings (keep your head up), and don't feel too self conscious about the social awkwardness of crossing the street, or even changing direction, to avoid those who appear to pose a threat. If you're gonna be walking around alone in the evening on a regular basis, a basic self defense course might behoove you. My old lady carries around one of these: It's legal and luckily it's very likely you'll never have to use it.

u/koalafied_human · 9 pointsr/IAmA

Hey there! I really like your videos and they've been very instructive for me when dabbling in swordfighting techniques. I've picked up a couple synthetic longswords like the Cold Steel one and a bastard sword from medieval collectables. I find that they're either unbalanced or too light, respectively.

Is there a good training bastard sword that you recommend purely for practice?

u/ChicagoDogEater · 9 pointsr/amateur_boxing

You need to wrap your hands and wrists before you hit the bag. Try something like THIS

u/Shh-NotUntilMyCoffee · 9 pointsr/SweatyPalms

Most of the knives you use to practice and do these kind of things aren't sharp. Well the length of the blade isn't, but there still tends to be points even on the dull ones sold.

In fact, a lot of the time you use a replacement piece where the blade should be. Example

In this piece the guy literally catches the knife by the blade at one point.

u/Cosmosaurus · 7 pointsr/Hema

You could try to get ahold of Black Fencer's wasters. You can even get them at bulk price. (It seems a little difficult getting them to ship to the U.S., though.) (This is my first choice.)

The next best option would be Penti IIIs by PurpleHeart Armoury. They'll run you a bit higher than 100USD per sword, but they are worth it, in my opinion. (My club prefers this option for nylons.)

The cheapest option would be the Rawlings longsword (also available on Purpleheart Armoury). Don't get this one. It is extremely unreliable in even a mid-intensity bout and doesn't bind and wind well even in a (partner) drill; they are as wobbly as a cooked noodle. They also have poor point-of-balance, but you can fix it by attaching the steel pommel and crossguard options (which are sold separately; at that point, you have spent enough to get a penti, anyways.). However, under a tight budget, these do okay. They also seem the safest for free fencing.

I lied; the cheapest option is the Cold Steel Hand and Half Sword. Some people do a grinding mod to make it bearable. Don't get this.

These all hurt a good bit in my opinion. With gloves and a mask, I have never run into much more than bruising. You might want to get arm protectors if you are that worried, though. Just don't baseball swing your way through bouts. Practice good technique at necessary/reasonable intensity and martial consideration and sparring should be fine.

I also just noticed that you posted in /r/HEMA. Post in /r/WMA, instead.

Sorry to say, it's a cheap Chinese import.

u/DontWorryAboutIt00 · 7 pointsr/zelda

Thanks. I got the original on Amazon: So I got it and I got a Purple glitter Spray paint, a green paint pen, some gold paint and some silver paint. I just covered the top of the blade in tape so it doesnt get painted, and I spray painted the whole top with the purple paint. I waited for it to dry and then used the paint pen to do the lacing around the handle and used the gold and silver with a small brush to get those other spots. Was pretty easy overall

u/karmachallenged · 6 pointsr/Wicca

I had a super fun class last night. I was hoping to go to a class tonight, but it filled up so I'm going to work on crafting a ritual for next week. Wooo!

Also, I bought a NEW backup athame. Prepping for class yesterday, I realized my actual athame and my backup athame are both at the covenstead. So I bought a new one from Amazon. Super cheap, but I need something ASAP. $9 for 4.5 stars. :)

u/Razenghan · 6 pointsr/bjj

If you don't mind me piggybacking off your post, u/UncleSkippy, I also have a A1 white gi, like new (wife wore it twice, threw out her back, and said "Welp I'm done with BJJ").

Same rule applies: if you only have 1 other gi, first come / first serve. It says A1, but it's much closer to an A2. Please look at the size chart in the link!!

u/SlapHappyRodriguez · 5 pointsr/bjj

i almost pains me to say it, because i hate their marketing, but Shoyoroll are legit. if you buy a "comp standard" it will be about the same price as any quality gi. they actually have one that you can pre-order now.
since it is your first one i would recommend Sanabul. you can get one for $70 or less and they are not bad quality. i bought one for my wife, because i half way thought she would quit. now a handful of guys i train with own one because they saw hers and wanted a cheap gi.

Get a Kubotan, and learn how to use it (see youtube vids). Please, protect yourself. From the way you're describing things, I think you might be in mortal danger.

u/grey_sky · 4 pointsr/halloween

I'd go for something like Cold Steel Training Swords. Not going to break on you anytime throughout the night and really blunt so you can hit your buddies with it. Downside is that up close it is obviously a training sword. Also, you'll have to make a scabbard or just make a loop to put it.
video showing the durability

That said, if you are going for looks maybe this or this or this would be a better choice. However, my experience with crap quality like this is it will break and it is marginally sharp so you could hurt someone or yourself if you unsheath it.


u/AFspectre · 3 pointsr/bjj

what is your budget range?

personally i have tried:



So far I have the most mat time with the Gr1ps gi that I own and have been super happy with the fit/weight/durability of it, and just got a new one for Black Friday. I just got the Habrok but so far I like it.

Quite a few people that I have trained with have had the Sanabul gi and they seem to hold up well. The people I know that have them like them.

u/alchemist5 · 3 pointsr/batman

Depends on what you're going for. If you want it to look like the comics, see KirbyW's comment. But if you want it to be 'realistic', I recommend something like this over a black turtleneck, with the proper blue (or red for current continuity, I guess) paint applied. For the pants, slim-fit cargos with shin guards, perhaps?

The mask is pretty easy, 'night mask', or if you want realism, maybe tactical goggles.

"Ninja" stuff might also be a nice touch (grappling hook, throwing knives etc.)

His traditional weapon is 2 eskrima sticks (buy a dowel rod from Hobby Lobby, cut it in half, paint), but collapsible batons could be an interesting alternative.

edit: added a link for goggles.

edit 2: added links for shin guards and knives.

u/redshirt55 · 3 pointsr/zelda

This one is really awesome. It's a perfect match for the Twilight Princess master sword, but for some reason the hilt is black with a red gem instead of blue with gold. (I think it's supposed to be Shadow Link's or something). I remember seeing a blue version once, but I can't find it.

u/hiddensn · 3 pointsr/Fitness

I'm not a boxer, but I did end up buying a heavy bag with some gloves and wrist wraps a few months ago, just to get a different form of cardio. It get's the job done really well.

when looking for gloves, I ended up buying these, and they been pretty good so far. Everlast boxing gloves

from my experience, protecting your wrists/knuckles is the most important part, so make sure you get yourself some wraps. I got some pretty small hands, and yet 120" is barely enough to wrap both my wrist and knuckles, so I suggest you get the 180" wraps. wrist wraps

u/kokomoman · 3 pointsr/zelda

I'm partial to this one.

u/Duhherroooo · 3 pointsr/balisong

Dont get a CCC with screws. Those are even less durable than the pinned construction ones and have cheap hardware that strips. You can either get a bbbarfly or the dragon trainer here

They are pinned, but I can guarantee you will hold up way better than any screw construction trainer under $40

u/Midnightatnevada · 3 pointsr/zelda

To my knowledge, there's no such thing as a mass produced metal Hylian Shield. If you want one you'll have to make it yourself or have one custom made, which would likely be quite expensive. This is about as good as it gets. Sorry.

u/jvhero · 2 pointsr/bjj
  1. Ceck out u/ragnar_deerslayer post on Danaher's ENTER THE SYSTEM on the cheap

You can get this athame on amazon. It's quite inexpensive and perfect for rituals.

Or $56. This one actually looks better in my opinion.

u/talahrama · 2 pointsr/zelda

From here.

u/Rock-C · 2 pointsr/tf2

Few people have mentioned this, but you can buy Trainers online. These are purely for tricks and not for the actual knife. The end is blunt on both sides, so it has no chance of cutting you. The one I bought online shows you which side is the bite handle and which side is the safe-side with the little divets at the bottom of the "blade." Be a bit warned though, this trainer is a bit longer than most other balisongs, but I didn't find an issue with that. My only issue with the balisong I listed is that it's a spring-loaded latch, so it's kinda static. Mine wore off after a while and now it's a normal latch, which is great.

u/Catbrain · 2 pointsr/throwing

I just have a piece of wood as my target, like you can buy from the home depot. Just don't use plywood, use solid wood.

As for knives, i would recommend blue angel 6 inch throwing knives, or this
or this

u/PinkCuttlefish · 2 pointsr/knives

You do not need anything over 20 bucks for a trainer. If you feel like you really want something high quality, just buy your balisong and put a bit of duct tape on the edge. I recommend this. Make sure you have a few Torx screwdrivers on hand to tighten it every once in a while.

u/hecticenergy · 2 pointsr/bjj

I’ve got this one:

Sanabul Essentials v.2 Ultra Light Pre Shrunk BJJ Jiu Jitsu Gi (A1, White) See Special Sizing Guide

I’ve been rolling with it twice a week for about 8 months. Still feels pretty new. I’m in Texas so the lightweight is nice during the long summer.

Probably not top quality, but seems like a great value given my experience with it.

u/Snapop23 · 2 pointsr/secretsanta

You can get usable Machettes that are shaped like classic sowrds on amazon. That might be your best bet for something afordable and durable.

u/myanrueller · 2 pointsr/StarWars

Someone who wants to study European martial arts here:

multiple options exist for "practice swords" there's a polypropelene in many models. As for lightsabers...

Ultraforce has some "battle ready force FX ones," which instead of the LEDs all across the blade it's one powerful one. Saberforge looks nice too.

There's also a "lightsaber bokken".

And for someone more interested in European swords styles, there's not a Kylo Ren model yet. But there will be.

u/nairbmik · 2 pointsr/amateur_boxing

I'm a beginner as well. I have both Everlast handwraps and off brand handwraps. Both do the job fine. Remember to wrap your hands and wrist well to prevent wrist injury.

I have Ringside IMF Techs and they're great, but pricey. Plenty of good options out there, check out /r/boxing and search for glove recommendations.

My bag is an Everlast C3 Foam bag, which is supposedly one of Everlast's higher end bags. It's been about a month and it's holding up fine. Ringside and Title make decent bags, too. I also have the Everlast bag stand, which is noisy and creaky, but it does the job.

u/Konman72 · 2 pointsr/zelda

My wife got that sword for me for Christmas off of Amazon. Mine didn't come with the hooks to hold it for some reason but we managed to get it attached. It is definitely very nice, I'm not normally a sword collector but this was amazing and looks great in our house. If you have the cash I recommend buying it.

EDIT: Link to Amazon, maybe they are cheaper:

u/GanonFodder · 2 pointsr/Random_Acts_Of_Amazon

You best have seen or own Dr. Horrible's Sing-Along Blog or I'm removing your geek cred.

I also think this would look cool on a car, Firefly Emblem.

And I consider my love of Sailor Moon geeky.

Lastly since my username is Zelda related I should include one of the Zelda related items on my list.

u/guttermonkey · 2 pointsr/Random_Acts_Of_Amazon

The zombies ate my brains yet I was able to come up with a couple items:

  • Cricket Bat - not necessarily unusual thanks to Shawn of the Dead, but unusual to own in the US. Would be great for smashing heads.
  • Sickle - not quite as good for range, but would be good for beheading.
  • A Spear would be good to keep them at range and run less risk of a bite.
  • You could be a badass like Tyrese in the Walking Dead comic and use a regular old Claw Hammer
  • Some leather forearm guards would be good for reducing your chance of a bite while using any melee weapons.
  • You could also go all Dead Rising and carry around a stack of traffic cones to slap on their heads...

It's the weekend and allow me to tell you a story.

When I was a small child my grandmother told me of a group of people from legend. These were warriors from a time when bandits ruled the streets and the governments were ruthless. These warriors honed their skills in secret, biding their time until a day came when they could free the people from oppression. Now I didn't actually think this was any more than a fairy tale, until last week...

I was at an assembly on free speech, and what did I see? A warrior of old gliding through the crowd. No one noticed him except me. I knew this was my chance to make something of myself, to join his ranks and become a warrior for the people! So I ran up and tapped him on the shoulder as quickly as I could.

He got really scared and dropped his sword, and it broke.

Now I owe him one of these...

u/Darth_Tard · 2 pointsr/MuayThai

Make sure that you purchase wraps that are 180 inches in length. Don't trust anything that doesn't list a length. Also, 100% cotton wraps are not what you want. You will want elastic cotton wraps (they will stretch a bit, giving a tighter fit and allowing more flexibility while maintaining good support), also called mexican style wraps. These are the wraps I use, and I wouldn't get anything else.

u/Senorginger64 · 2 pointsr/zelda

Because of the way the the sword is designed there is a slim to none chance that you will find a full tang because the handle is so slim compared to the blade. the best one I could find was at amazon

I bought this one. I think it looks pretty good. The hilt is a bit too blue, I think, and lacking some of the finer details. I intend on eventually painting it to look authentic. It's hanging on my wall right now. I wouldn't ever buy this one with the intention of using it as a real sword though as the hilt is just a metal casing snapped around it fairly insecurely.

I'm still in the market for a good Hylian shield replica that doesn't have a bird with two tails.

You're so hot that I have to wear the gorons tunic when I'm with you.

This seemed pretty cool to me

i got exactly what is shown in OP's pic, but i haven't read all the reviews. its possible other people didn't get what was advertised

u/theguy56 · 2 pointsr/throwing

I bought the three tomahawk brand knives on sale, about a dollar a piece not including shipping. Now everything people say about the quality is true. However at a dollar a knife, they were ideal for me as my first throwing knives.

Because they were so cheap, it wasn't the end of the world to bend or damage one due to my poor throwing as a beginner. They certainly 'worked' as far as throwing knives, but even as a beginner you feel like you wish you had a better quality knife in your hand.

Bottom Line: Can't beat the price for what you get, but as expected they aren't worth much unless you're learning and don't want to damage a good knife.

Edit: Here's what I'm talking about:

Edit 2: Fun fact, these cheap little guys were actually used in the Hunger Games film

Sanabul is pretty cheap (for a gi, still kind of expensive in general) and is well regarded. I think it runs big though. Based on what I know, which is not much (I haven't been training long enough), we're at the point where even budget Gis like this should hold up for a while:

Edit: It looks like your jiu jitsu gear is a bit cheaper and comes with a free belt.

u/LovehandsCardisty · 1 pointr/balisong

Probably the best one out there. Plus is only $10 plus shipping.

Not plastic but metal with no blade, plastic ones found generally in shady markets that sell pipes and bongs

That’s the assassin dagger from Amazon. It looks pretty cool until you flip it over and the sheath has philips head screws holding it together.

I'm not a pro on swords, but it's definitely not a Katana. But here is a link to the exact sword :

Dear younger me,
Don't get so hung up on that guy- he isn't worth it.
Seriously. Just stop.

thanks for the contest!

u/reiphil · 1 pointr/cosplay

what you want is a straight long sword. You could probably get by by painting these and carving the hilt guard a little.

u/Raiseittoeleven · 1 pointr/trees

Here you go!! Found it on amazon. You can also get the shield for another $45! ha

u/RDandersen · 1 pointr/gaming

That's what I thought too, but he's well aware of the fact that it's emtpy from the start and yesterday he bought this

u/Forgototherpassword · 1 pointr/AskReddit

THIS is on sale!

u/ignitionNOW · 1 pointr/geek

I may need a knife once or twice a year and not be able to find something else that will do the job. Not worth the pocket real estate, in my case.

I'd sooner carry around a pair of brass knuckles if I wanted to be a badass. Or perhaps, one of these

u/thejewishdilemma · 1 pointr/AskReddit

This is clearly the best way to spend 19 bucks

u/TheSliceman · 1 pointr/TheRedPill

Okay, well first order of business is getting the bag up. Do that asap.

Gloves and wraps I would buy off amazon.



And wrap your hands Thai style, inbetween fingers.

u/Grant638 · 1 pointr/zelda

I think they may be one of a kind, sorry pal. Amazon has some really nice ones though, specifically this one.

u/Icantbackflip · 1 pointr/zelda

Actually, still no good sadly.

I've read reviews of all of those Master Swords listed on other sites, and plenty of them seem to have something wrong with them when delivered. I normally wouldn't have any problems with that as it's like ~£60, but those sellers look shifty. So, it's a no-go sadly.

I tried Amazon and Ebay, and ones like the one below don't even sell to the UK:

How the hell do people even get this stuff in the UK? This is ridiculous, there's like nothing out here for us lol.

u/sween1911 · 1 pointr/history

Get him a Gladius - the Roman sword.

There’s lots of reproductions out there, match your budget.

You could always get the Cold Steel Gladius machete too...

u/erscha · 1 pointr/bleach

have to define legit. they are "real" but made with stainless steel and not sharpened. basically just for decoration. so it is a "real" sword made of metal and all but if you ever tried to use it the blade would probably bend immediately. if you want something sharp and less likely to bend i would recommend one of these ( just a little more expensive. not bleach related but you can feel like its your own Zanpakuto. P.S a tip in sword quality when looking at lower prices is any kind of carbon blade like this is a huge step above stainless steel, its basically what makes it a usable sword. not masterfully made but is sharp, less likely to bend, and made to last longer than display blades.

u/Choogly · 1 pointr/Katanas

Don't do it.

Get this one. Cheaper, and actually usable. Kind of incredible that it exists, honestly.

u/Boqueef · 1 pointr/balisong

I own the Vornnex dragon trainer an it lasted me about a year.

u/StormTAG · 1 pointr/balisong

So I've been fidgeting with a trainer I bought ( and now I decided to try and get a little more deliberate with my "training." I have no one to help in person so I appreciate any guidance or suggestions.

I started with this list to give me some structure ( and I'm currently on the 2nd video, which details the Fan (

I can get it to work most of the time but pretty often when I do the flip out, both the handle and the blade end up on the same side, so rather than a T, I end up more with an L. If I wait to start rotating until after the handle has already hit the back of my fingers, it works consistently. Thus, my guess is that I'm starting the rotation too soon and I just need more practice to start the rotation at the right point.

Also, most of the time when I do start fanning the blade ends up straight out and only occasionally perpendicular to my hand. Any tips for keeping the T shape consistent while fanning? I'm assuming it's just another practice thing but figured I'd ask.

u/itsJustYvonne · 1 pointr/balisong

I think u r flipping this one

I’m completely new to balisongs, do u think this is a good cheap trainer to start with?

u/declared_somnium · 1 pointr/Random_Acts_Of_Amazon

Though I hope to high hell that you never need these bits of information; keyes make an ideal improvised self defence weapon

There's also something to be said about a tightly rolled newspaper. A tip my uncle taught my sister and I from his misspent youth. When a newspaper (or magazine) is rolled up tightly. A strike to the throat or head will hurt enough to give you time to run. It won't hold up to prolonged use, but for a split second weapon, it'll do the job. It's an old football/soccer hooligan trick, because the police can't stop you from carrying a newspaper.

if all else fails, think like a Squirrel, and go for the nuts. While I have my legs clenched tightly whilst typing this. A knee to the groin, or if you're extra desperate, doing a reverse Donald Trump. Just grasp those bollocks, and twist, if the pain of his abused nuts isn't enough to deter him, the thought that you might do worse will be. EDIT: it works on all parts that dangle, if you grab at a womans breasts and give them a damn good twist, then she'll be just as eager to leave you alone.


Also consider buying something like this. They work best on pressure points, and that means that they are designed to hurt, but not to injure. Neck, shoulder, wrist, elbow, groin, or places like that. If used alongside a swift knee to the gonads, you have enough time to make an escape.

These are all last options though, You did the right thing by deassing the area as fast as you and your dog could go.

u/unnamedstripper45 · 1 pointr/amateur_boxing

Been adding Heavy Bag into HIIT workouts and after a couple weeks decided I'd like to break the bank for some proper wraps and bag gloves. Haven't been able to find a good store nearby, but online selection is pretty good: they have about 3-4 different sets each from TITLE, Ringside, Hayabusa, Venum and Cleto Reyes. Was wondering if I could get some recommendations for those brands.

-8.7'' wrist, looking for 16oz gloves

-Flexible for price, $150/1100rmb max

-6in1ft, weigh about 210 pounds (hence the workout!)

-Training/bag only going 2-3 times a week.

Based on some research/recommendations been looking at this set in particular:

Hayabusa Tokushu

Also choosing between these wraps, not really sure what to look for other than 180 inch.





Thanks in advance!

u/Trystt27 · 1 pointr/IAmA

I took some courses about 7 years back from KRON

Unfortunately, my trainer passed away from cancer, so it's just me at this point.

The practice sword I have is this one.

u/vxcosmicowl · 1 pointr/Random_Acts_Of_Amazon

We use dot us these Training Swords in my medieval combat class!

They also make a Shield

This steampunk flavored Cryptex Flash Drive might be appreciated! Useful and stylish in a similar vein to this Steampunk Watch
As for board games, I recommend Shadow Hunters, Splendor, and Coup

For tabletop games, you could get him A Nice Set of Color Coded Diece

When it comes to video games, this Retro Arcade Console Desk Toy could be a great work passtime with 200 games! Alternatively if you have a fridge or a metal workspace, Magnetic Tetris! for idle hands

Hope any of these help haha

If you got 50 bucks and amazon prime you can get it! I bought the same one and my only issue was the gold bit at the top of the sheath coming out with the sword, but some super glue fixed that

u/Xzanos · 1 pointr/SweatyPalms

For those interested you can buy a trainer (dull) Balisong/Butterfly knife from amazon for about 13$ I bought this one here and have been learning to use it while at my desk. Very fun but it certainly takes some patients and learning.

u/hawkael20 · 1 pointr/SWORDS

Found it. Based on one of the reviews it sounds like it has a rat tail tang. They had been swinging it around but I really don't suggest it as it could fail and hurt someone.

u/N0_M1ND · 1 pointr/bjj

From what I gather the Standard Issue and Hooks are basically the same with the exception the Hooks has outer labeling whereas the Stardard Issue has no identifiable markings, like how gis used to be, this also leaves room for more patches if that's your thing.

Another option you may consider that is inexpensive and good quality is Sanabul.

Prices basically increase for color of gi, which seems to be a standard industry practice for "flagship" mass produced gi of a company. I own one, but it's a gi they don't make anymore, but it's my favorite gi. A lot of guys at my gi have them as well, they've held up nicely.

Whatever you decide to buy, I think sizing is most important regardless. You don't want to be swimming in you gi, but you also don't want a gi that is too small. Generally, you can shrink a gi, you can't make them bigger.

Well... most people don't have swords on their wishlists :P
Also, I look for a very interesting, intellectual, and intriguing story in a comic book. Also, dialogue is very important and good writing is imperative. If the dialogue writing sucks then the comic book sucks.

u/Evadrepus · 1 pointr/zelda

If you're still looking, this is the one I got for Christmas. I picked it out after spending some time looking for an inexpensive one. I'm pretty satisfied with it. Like the reviews state, the painting on the gem is more than a little sloppy. I will be doing a minor repaint on it but otherwise I'm very pleased with it. It's huge, heavy, and looks great (aside from the slightly sloppy painting). The enamel gold paint cost me $10, which still makes this very economical.

Hello roommate. I don't really have a question, more of a suggestion. Get one of these bad boys on Amazon for $16. Free shipping with Amazon prime. It's a ninja sword but in the length of a machete. I feel as if this would be perfect for you. Also comes with a neat leather sheath that you can wear on your back. It is one of my favorite killing instruments.
