  • Help saltwater fishing?

    The past few days I've been fishing off of San Diego piers with a $30 pole which came with a line attached so I don't know what kind of line it is but it's fairly thin and a red circular hook. A guy at the pier tied a weight on below the hook to help me cast further and I've been using these sparkly red lures now everyone around me is catching rays and sand bass so they lent me some of their bait (shrimp) and I still got no bites now I'm gonna try going at night to catch some rays does anyone have some advice I've pretty much fished 8 hours without one bite I can't understand it! (I'm a pretty big noob so I don't know anything about fishing really)

  • Wrestling for MMA even though I'm a striker/clincher? Read details.?

    Im 15 planning to start mma fighting at 18. Right now I do Muay Thai and I know Ill need a ground game before I start and I plan to start Jiu Jitsu next year when I can drive. I dont think anyone will be able to teach me wrestling until Im 17 or 18 and I like to strike I wont be one to take a guy down so I don't need the takedowns. I need the takedown defense and skills to get up when Im on my back because even though I wont be a ground fighter I HAVE to control where the fight takes place. What should I learn/practice before I start learning wrestling? Please DO NOT tell me to join my high school wrestling team I dont have one. Thank you.

  • Would this work at an mma fighter?

    Im 15 and when I turn 18 im gonna fight but right now I wanna be in good enough shape to do it. My knees and shoulders arent so sturdy so i decided Im going to start using almost completely no weights. I wanna be ripped though so I think Im gonna get all the fat off my body so that I can be ripped without bodybuilding. will this work for making me ripped and a powerful fighter?

  • How bad is this sternum injury?

    Im 15 and I do mixed martial arts and several months ago I took a hard shot to the sternum. When I leaned back in a certain way the sternum cracked like a knuckle and it was painful to do this for a day but as it went on the cracking had become painless and almost routine as I continued weight lifting and MMA. Now a few hours ago I was sparring and took a hard shot to the sternum and the pain is back but based on what happened last time Im sure it will be gone soon. Does anyone have a diagnosis and is this serious?

  • Becoming a pro fighter?

    Hi I just turned 15 and I've been training in Shotokan Karate for 2 years and Muay Thai for just over 2 months. I'm 5 feet 8 inches and 135 pounds. I'm somewhat muscular quite lean and strong. I'm good at Karate and Muay Thai and I plan to add BJJ to my training within the next couple years. I train at reputable gyms with good instructors in Muay Thai and Karate. I eat well and exercise regularly using weights, jump ropes, punching bags, bodyweight/plyometrics. I train my techniques via shadowboxing pad work and partner work as well as training in the gym for Muay Thai twice a week and the Dojo twice a week for karate. I know how to hit and I know how to take a hit. How do my chances look at being a pro UFC fighter someday? What do I need to add or change?

  • overcoming fear for a street fight?

    Im probably going to get in a fight before long and it's pretty much unstoppable at this point. I do have extensive martial arts training so I definitely have the skills required but I worry that my fear will lead to loss if I cannot calm myself down in time. How do I overcome this?
