    Hell yeah! Hell no!

    The olympics, the street, wimpiness and other thoughts

    Okay - some MAs in olympics are pretty street or at least enough street that they are the real deal and effective for real fighting. Some of them are however not - at all. What modifications you would make to the list of olympic ma/combat sports and why?

    Some of my thoughts are;


    - Boxing; Despite it being one of the most compact sports for asskicking I would change it into irish bareknuckle boxing or at VERY LEAST toss the amateur rules into trash can and make the fights professional bouts!

    - judo; I want to see Sumo Wrestling instead of!


    - taekwondo; Change into Leithwei or at very least to knockdown karate with face punches and no restriction with clinch

    - free-style wrestling; Change it into Catch-As-Catch-Can Wrestling

    - greco-roman wrestling: Make it pit fighting

    - Fencing: Change into tactical urban commando knife assault method fighting

    Archery and shooting? Dunno really - let me think about it! Maybe change archery to Bujinkan and shooting to krav maga with emphasis on using firearms?

    I WANT TO STREET THE OLYMPICS!

    And ofc we should see the return of pankration, not the modern fila/whatever version but the real deal with similar ruleset as it was in ancient Hellas

    Archery - randomly select a member of the spectators. Give him a 5 minute head start. Then time how long it takes...

    Ball sports should be replaced with the ancient Mesoamerican ball game.

    The 100m sprint is now always held in Compton. You still run 100m, only you are pursued the whole way by a bunch of gangsters in an El Camino with MAC-10s.

    I wrote this after they voted wrestling out of the Olympics:

    With the recent elimination of the oldest sport in existence from the 2020 Olympics, the IOC has made it very clear what direction they want this event to go. It won't be long before rhythmic circle-jerking supplants track-and-field and all medal winners will be declared by viewers' texted votes. With that mind, I think we here should take it upon ourselves to create a new international sporting event for the betterment of mankind. Instead of promoting peace and unity, however, the purpose of our event will simply be to promote raw badassery in the collective population of the globe. Here are my proposed events, please feel free to contribute your own:
    Wrestling (Three divisions: Greco-Roman, Freestyle, and Oil)
    Judo (With leg takedowns)
    Boxing (Pro rules)
    Pankration (With Cestus)
    Bullfighting (One-on-one, none of that **** where guys on horseback get to weaken the bull with spears first)
    Whale hunting (With canoes and spears)
    Mantrapping
    Instead of racewalking, Oldschool Pedestrianism (Athletes have to walk across the entire host country)
    Taktarov Marathon (Athletes must race a marathon's distance through the jungle with a burst appendix)
    Killdozer Joust
    Anbo-Jyutsu
    Piracy
    Javelin and Shot Put Catching
    Microlight Air Dueling
    Decathlon:
    Day 1
    - 100 metre hot coal army crawl
    - Tank shooting
    - Asphyxiation endurance
    - Manual building destruction
    - 2000 metre fall
    Day 2
    - Collapsed mine escape
    - Sperm count
    - Hippopotamus bowhunting
    - Bait eating
    - Last man standing free-for-all
    Send me money, and I will get this started.
