Any health gurus around these parts?

 Long time no see, everyone. I'm wondering if anyone knows of a high intensity martial art that can be learned solo. I was researching Capoiera, and while it could be learned without a partner, it…Continue

"Hang a heavy bag/speed bag in your basement and go online to learn some combos.  Not a martial art, but its a fun cardio workout and stress reliever and I consider learning the combos a hobby.  "

"No martial art can be learned solo, you need to find a good teacher, good sparring partners, and go from there.  An additional option for you might be prasara yoga"

"To be honest there isn't much martial arts wise that would be relevant or useful (beyond being intensive exercise) without a partner. You could try and find a partner who wants to train with you in which case there are lots of options. If not…"

Any health gurus around these parts?

 Long time no see, everyone. I'm wondering if anyone knows of a high intensity martial art that can be learned solo. I was researching Capoiera, and while it could be learned without a partner, it wouldn't be very practical. I'm looking for something like yoga that can be mastered alone without compromising the integrity of the culture behind it. I'd prefer that it has the same intensity as running. It rains a lot here so I generally have to exercise indoors and I have limited space. Anyone…See More

To change or not to change, that's the question - Hairstyles

I'm thinking about changing my hairstyle. Although I'm not certain if I want to. I might want it shorter, but I'm a bit 'afraid' that it'll won't look good, and I'll walk around like a fool (I've some childhood horrors with short hair (It looks horrible, imo)). The hairstyle I've right now is okay. I'm happy with it, but it could be better, depending on the situation.One other problem I have with my hair is (I use gel and hairspray to keep it a bit in place), is that my hair somehow manages to…See More

Ammo shortage or manufactured crisis?

Posted in Gentleman Gunners.If you have the opportunity to shoot with any frequency, you may have noticed a little issue of procuring ammo over the past couple years. If you needed it you had to shop around, call all over the place, or go to every gun shop and show in "tri-state area."Generally the answers were, "We don't have any, but if we did you could pay our exorbitant prices and only buy a couple of boxes."  There was a lot of blame to go around...manufacturing lags, hoarding, zombies,…See More
