    Troubling Racism and Xenophobia in Sumo Reforms

    This kinda reminds me of the situation baseball was in 15 -20 years ago. The traditional "unwritten" rules like you can't "look at a pitcher after a Home Run" You have to throw at the next batter if you're shown up, you can't wear your hat crooked, don't get excited when you have a good hit...

    Honestly as bad as it sounds her brother's passing was the best thing that could have happened to her. She has complained for years about issues with digestion and back pain. They always told her it was acid reflux or food allergies or random other issues. So when her brother passed she...

    It's been a very crazy last 6 months. My wife was diagnosed with Pancreatic Cancer in Oct of 2020 a year to the day her brother died of the same thing. So she's been battling that and working the plan. Thankfully her team of docs is really good. On the upside, however, my 2 daughters graduate...

    So for the last two weeks ive watched my brother in law in Hospice struggle to stay alive or to die depending on the day from Cancer. Im amazed at how long the body can hold on even when the mind has given up. He passed last night surrounded by his family. He was a young man mid 40s with 3...

    Jon jones fails drug test yet again

    There is a HUGE difference between the 2. Nothing hypocritical about it. Taking a substance that alot of the time is legal for a nonprofessional to take but it's on some banned list by the USADA that helps your own body reach its peak performance in sports is far different then smoking a...

    Teach stances or blocks first?

    Sure on an individual basis one or two students may not get it and you need to break it down even more. But to teach it to everyone like that on purpose makes no sense to me.

    Teach stances or blocks first?

    No you didn't you went on and on about playing the guitar......Which by the way goes more with my point. You clearly know the fundamentals of playing the guitar and all that's involved. You may practice and focus on 1 specific part at a time but you know there are other parts to it. UNLIKE...

    Teach stances or blocks first?

    You don't need to be "hard" on them to teach them properly. I'm not sure how one relates to the other.

    Teach stances or blocks first?

    So why not teach them correctly from the beginning and understand that they wont do it perfectly at first but at least they know what they are supposed to be doing in theory even if they can't master it right away. I just can't see how the student is getting anything by saying "Here put your...
