Call it a coincidence, but I find that rolling whilst intoxicated with THC has its pluses and minuses.
I have noticed that I become slower but more relaxed during the role. This relaxation helps me think, and concentrate on moves. things tend to slow down in a sense.
However, I am slower and a bit lazier in my grappling whilst stoned.
So what is your position on THC intoxication along with a grapple? How does it make you feel? what do you prefer?
My position is that this is a stupid idea and stupid thread that has been done before.
Oh, and SEARCH FUNCTION, NOOB!!!!ELEVEN!!!
I have found that turkey basting my ass with a meth/salt water solution really compliments my crappling. You should try it with your weed OP.
Stupid idea! Psychologically speaking if you learn something while under the influence ie studying for a test then you should be in the same mental state when you put that knowledge to use ie taking the test. Are you going to be stoned every time you might need your martial arts ability?
Phenom, you're full of ****. I've heard that too, and don't believe it at all.
I've sparred, and POINT SPARRED stoned. If you have any kind of mental fortitude at all, it's no big deal whatsoever. Point sparring is all about speed, and I'm just as good at it stoned as sober. Just don't act like a dumbass, and focus.
And yes, I realize being good at point sparring is like being in the special olympics. It's the only way you can really compete around here, especially when you're under 18 (which I was not all that long ago).
Your personal "experience/opinion" trumps scientific studies apparently so I must be wrong. Great argument. :BangHead:

Second, OP is a n00b and a dork for posting this.

I dunno if it was a result of his lifestyle or that's just the way he is about things but regardless maybe there's more to this...
Nah not really I just wanted to get that stupid "You haven't posted in Weeks" garbage from the top of every page and figured I'd chime in on an experience where I rolled with this awesome weird guy.
