    The winner of the men's super heavy class jerked 258 kg (he weighed 140 on the day) so that's only 1.8 times his bodyweight.

    But who would you rather take a punch from? The little guy because he doesn't punch as hard.

    I disagree. http://www.nbcolympics.com/weightlif...les/index.html the heights [del]move almost in lock step[/del] strongly correlated with the increasing bodyweights

    My sarcasm detector is in the shop. I hope to have it back in a couple weeks.

    Short arms are better for benching, but reaching to the ground to do deads or cleans, they are a liability......

    Don't be hatin' on us shorties, man.

    Think about where the fulcrum is in your arms. It'd be your elbow, putting the effort on the short leg, and the resistance on the long leg.

    Trying to bring this thread back on track. What is sanchin breathing? After googling all I could find was people arguing if it was helpful or dangerous. But no actual definitions.

    here's what i've been taught:

    ibuki breathing (ie, what goes with sanchindachi training) generally consists of emptying one's lungs (often as loudly and conspicuously as possible; i hate those guys) while tightening up every muscle in the body, generally on a forward step/gather. after this, the lungs are kept as empty as possible, with short, rapid maintenance breaths taken.

    it's bullshit.

    This guys main dojo is about two miles from my BJJ school, I even looked into training there 8 years ago when I first moved to the area, (Okinawan Gojo-ryu is closely related to the system I was training in when I moved), but I was really turned off by the McDojoish nature of the place. He sells different levels of contracts that provide different levels of access to classes. He calls these contracts "society memberships".

    Calasanz is probably one of the most successful McDojo artists in existence. He has made a fortune off MA students. He has franchised his "system" to several of his students who have opened their own schools and pay him fees, his main school is over 10,000 square feet and has several training areas including a full sized ring and a weight training facility.

    The guy himself is barely 5 feet tall, and kind of a laughing stock in the area with the 'fro he wears to make himself look taller. That being said, he is an incredbly tough dude, and outside of his _ing _ung and krotty, does some hardcore, alive full contact training (boxing, kickboxing) for those who are looking for it. One of the blue belts I train with used to be one of his boxing trainers, and has a really good stand up game.

    His school is very expensive (full memberships in his "societies" can cost several hundred dollars a month) and he is a anti-grappler extrodinaire. One of the biggest LOL's I get off his course list is his "Wing Chun Ground Fightning" -- basically kicking and striking from the bottom if you end up on the ground.

    I tend to kiai when doing squats and bench presses, so I don't really have anything against the guy. Growl away, good friend. Growl away.
    Also, the man is clearly ripped, so he has my respect for that.

    I am from the area this guy has his school in. he has been around since well before I was a little kid. Basically, he now has 8 schools in the area, and charges alot of casholas. I go there every so often for self lolz, as he shows me his moves and the gym. Seriously, 4200 a year!

    It has a McDojo rep with the hard cores, but most don't know any better, they think because its been around for so long, that its legit.

    In The Naked Warrior Pavel mentions a bit about Sanchin breathing, 'power breathing' and various 'noises' and their correlation to strength. He seemed to vouch that using these methods worked relatively well because they were correlated to internal pressure in the diaphragm, and through some complicated muscular process your overall strength. IE: Breathing a certain way would increase your muscular capability by increasing internal pressure in the abdomen. That's a horrible sum-up, but it's the best I can do without copy-pasting the chapter.
