Want to Get More 'Smooth'

Hi TN!

So ive been training alot for a match in august this year, but have found out im lacking from having a long body, meaning im not so smooth as i could be.

I have been thinking on some yoga? Is that the best thing to do for smoothness? - If so, is there any type of videos / sites you can recommend?

Thanks and best regards

Thor

If this is for your “fight” with your “friend,” I’m not helping you.

I

Don’t

Even…

What are you asking here?

How to get smoother technique? Practice, practice under supervision, practice after that, and then practice some more?

How that correlates to long limbed I have no idea.

LOL I avoided this because I smelled troll shit.

didn’t want to step in it…LOL get smoother…try lotion??

Oh no…Oh boy…Practice…video tape yourself, watch it…practice some more

Can we focus on this shorter is smoother thing?

I want something to feel smug about the next time I am searching for the step stool at Barnes & Noble just so I can read the top shelf of books.

Its already easier to squat for you short guys. stop trying to take everything away from us taller guys.

We’re better looking too.

It’s been proven.

Are you talking about being more mobile? I’m pretty lanky and being stronger is really helpful even if it’s for your bodyweight.

rarely hear a woman say she wants a short guy. Normally its tall, dark, and handsome.

Where is the scientifically demonstrable and repeatable data?

True. True.

However I’ve noticed short guys are quite skilful when it comes to using their weapons.

I’m always willing to make some exception.

I always tell them that it doesn’t matter when they’re on their back.

Are these all double entendre, or have we moved on to weapon use in clinching/grappling situations. Cause…I am regretfully more practiced at the latter.

Prone clinching and tantric grappling? What a great thread!

I’d argue any day that it’s all about the needs of your opponent.
Is he strong? Is he dominant? Is he hungry?

If your weapon is not up to the task, just refrain from physically demanding techniques like the Boar-Thrust (Vatsayayana) or Tiger-in-the-Jungle (Hsuan Nu Ching).
Force your game on him/her!

Any type of weapons will do…

best advice I have ever seen. Eating more twinkies solves everything.

I always preferred studying tape of this guy when trying to get smoother:
