My dad is a diver, he used to dive with seals and he said that they would just play around you and basically they were just mermaid dogs 

ITS SMILING

mermaid dogs


Harbor seals are like puppy dooooogs! Sea lions, however, are slightly terrifying.

brii-yevna asked:

Hello! I was wondering if you had any recommendations for BJJ. Recently I was convinced that it would be a great activity to take part in and learn and in such a short time I have become rather enamored with it. However I lack the background in how to get information about the small things - gi information, what to wear, etc. Also, this may sound silly, but I am rather apprehensive about actually getting on the mat. Any suggestions?

mistekins:

Hello!!!! BJJ is GREAT! pardon my biased opinion, but it really is. 

As far as gathering information, it really depends on the Academy you join. Some places are a lot pickier than others, some have requirements others do not. So really it depends. As far as gi’s go, that’s a whole journey you have to take on yourself. I have 5 gi’s all of them different, but i have that ONE gi that fits me perfect and is my favorite. But that’s not the case for everyone who has that same brand, its an individual comfort choice. 

As for what to wear, that’s also personal preference. I usually wear compression or spandex shorts and a t-shirt under my gi. 

If you have any more specific questions, or want some websites, forums or just more info about training in general PLEASE let me know :) if there’s one thing i love just as much as training, it’s talking about it. haha.

Also, its OK to be apprehensive about getting on the mat. This sport is intimidating, especially when you push yourself to do it on your own. So don’t feel silly for feeling that way!!! If you’re worried about rolling with guys, find somewhere that has a women’s program or women who train regularly. That way you can get more comfortable with the moves. Plus, its always a good sign when there are women in a martial arts gym!!! that means the ego’s are in check and the coaches make sure safety is a priority.

Can i get some help from my fellow BJJ ladies?! I know there are way better answers to these questions!

mistekins replied to your post: positional maintenance

Lol!! That’s almost as bad as when my team mate, upper belt, told me I needed to really sit on his face to get the move correctly….ummmm. What. No. Just no.

Oh, man, I have so many of those awkward moments in jiu jitsu! It’s like…

That particular north-south day I was rolling with a female friend whose boyfriend also rolls at our gym… she said the last time she practiced north-south with him, he motorboated her boobs.

positional maintenance

north-south? you mean, BOOBS TO FACE position, amirite?!?!

(seriously awkward north-south drilling is a major reason i got a legit rashguard to wear under my gi instead of a typical girly-cut tank top)

So this is what air benders can do. Sucking the air out of people’s lungs. Just as cool as lightening bending if you ask me

No I don’t think you guys understand this is frightening

Airbenders are pretty much the most powerful benders. A firebender has to create fire. A waterbender is most powerful on the open seas as much as an earthbender is on land. But air is literally everywhere.
The Air Nomads weren’t dangerous because they chose not to be.

Friendly Reminder that Airbenders can suck the air out of your lungs, and more advanced techniques are controlling sound and air pressure. This means they could burst your eardrums, and crush your lungs. And they also have the potential to create a sharknado.

But does people not get it though? When the airbenders became extinct it wasn’t because they were weak. They could’ve overthrown the firenation with just this single move. If they wanted to, and decided to go against their beliefs, I’m sure they would’ve toppled over the firenation so easily. But they held onto their beliefs. It meant more to them than anything. 

Yo I remember reading years ago about the capabilities of an airbender, one of which was bending the air out of people’s lungs. I always figured that would be too dark, even for Nick…but since they introduced bloodbending…I’m not surprised this wasn’t far behind.

Friendly reminder that Monk Gyatso’s corpse was surrounded by the bones of several dozen firebenders. Gyatso went down fighting, and god only knows what he did.

Gyatso must have made the room a vacuum, killing the firebrnders and himself in the process
