I got offered some deals at 10K. I think that at that point you are considered a micro influencer.
Edit: I wanted to reply to the thread but messed up and replied to this comment
That's a good point regarding the collars that I didn't fully appreciate.
I don’t think the collar would make a difference, you can choke someone with a RNC which wraps your whole arm around the neck and it still takes somewhere above 8 seconds most of the time.
Actually the best way to choke someone is to go 70-80% of your power so you can hold the choke for a longer time because it doesn’t matter how hard you choke someone it you can’t hold it for more than a few second your opponent is not going out/tapping.
As someone who is a first time traveller to Japan currently in Japan, definitely do Fushimi Inari super early in the morning. My partner and I went at 5am and we were out of there by 7am when more people started coming in - it’s not an enjoyable hike with hundreds of people stopping every two or so minutes for photos.
As for the train lines - it is confusing and the first few times will be very overwhelming but there’s lots of signs in English and Google Maps will help with navigating which lines and stations but will be very little help in terms of which platform you should be on.
The rest of your itinerary seems quite rushed, trying to go city to city in sometimes half days. I’d take the advice of some of the other commenters and skip certain places if you only plan on spending half the day in the city and half in another. There were so many things I had on my itinerary that I didn’t actually do just because we ended up seeing something that wasn’t on the list just by chance.
Same thing happened to me, I didn’t really have an itinerary but I planned one day in advance what were we doing.
Every day I scheduled three places to visit but in the end we only did 2 each day because time flies by
You are staying at shinjuku so you might want to check the free observatory if you want to take a look at the city, you can go there the day you arrive it’s not that energy consuming
I’d recommend visiting Ginza at night instead of during the day, I think it is prettier
And finally I didn’t saw Tokyo Tower in your itinerary, the view from the top deck was one of my favorite part of my trip a couple weeks ago, i kinda regretted not going up the first time I went to Japan many years ago when I saw the view.
Japan is a wonderful place to explore, I think you are going to have a blast regardless of what you decide to do.
Yo no me fui a vivir pero acabo de ir de viaje, estaba platicando con mi amigo y de atrás nos dicen “son mexicanos?”
Total que conocimos a este brother, que se fue a vivir allá, es geólogo y aplico para una beca allá, nos cuenta qué hay mucho empleo de medio o tiempo completo y que su esposa también aplico para la beca pero no se la dieron así que hizo examen para la uni que quería y se va a ir así sin beca y ya allá a buscar chamba.
It's a yearly thing for japan to have a bunch of pikachus march around. This year they added eevee in anticipation for the let's go games
Thanks, does it happens only in Yokohama ? Or are they going to tour the country? I’m going to Japan soon and would love to watch it live.
Pretty sure Pikachu outbreak is limited to Yokohama
Yeah, just did some research but found out it’s not that far from Tokyo. Sadly it will be over in the 16th

I just bought a year membership to artlist.io.
For years I used pond 5 and motionarray.com- artlist is 1000x better. It's actual music, rather than obvious stock music. It's a little costly if you're just doing it as a hobby $200/ year but it has unlimited downloads, so it's well-worth it for me.
Annnd I (shamefully) have a referral code if you are interested https://artlist.io/chuck-152744. I think you get a discount with that and it would give me an extra month.
I also recommend artlist, before that I used to look in SoundCloud etc but there were project that I hadn’t done in 6 months for lack of aprópiate music. I save a lot of time now when it comes to looking for songs
Seriously look into an iPad pro and a WD Wireless Passport Pro. Or if you want to stay away from an iPad, I guess you could get a Surface Pro with Windows. But I'm currently trying all of this with the Apple platform, even though I use an Android phone.
With this setup I can shoot videos and photos with my Sony a7iii, and when I get back to the hotel or HomeBase I can insert the SD card into the WD passport and dump all the footage and images.
For my photo editing on my iPad Pro, I use Lightroom CC as well as affinity and Snapseed. It's amazing how powerful those apps can be. For a couple bucks more per month, you can get 1 TB of cloud storage on both Adobe and iCloud. Definitely comes helpful if you are shooting a lot and need to back them up.
For video, I was introduced to the app lumafusion for $20. It actually sees the WD passport Wireless Pro and can access the footage for editing directly from there. The app itself is fantastic and I have found myself using it more for personal projects than my actual iMac at work. It is very powerful and has tons of options including multiple tracks, keyframing, masking, color correction, Luts, and lots of other features that are kind of surprising.
They make the WD passport Pro in different sizes. I purchased the 2 TB and I figure that will give me enough room for any long trips I might make or lots of footage.
I just finished a week in Sturgis South Dakota for the bike rally and shot video every single day as well as hundreds of Raw photos. I dumped to memory cards every night so I can start fresh the next day and only used about a third of the drive. I'm sure if I took a little time to go through what I had dumped a little more thoroughly, I could have deleted things not needed and freed up a little more space to make it last longer if my trip was longer. I was in a cabin in the mountains with no Wi-Fi and able to access all my footage and videos with just my iPad and that WD drive. I did a few photo edits and started putting together a couple video timelines, but once I got home I plugged my drive into my main computer and was able to access everything I captured while traveling.
Might be worth taking a look at. If you wanted to stay in the windows platform with a surface tablet, I'm sure the WD drive, as well as Lightroom and Photoshop would work but you would have to find the windows equivalent of lumafusion for video editing.
EDIT: I forgot to mention that I can do the video in 4k in lumafusion if I wanted to. Most of the time I do 1080 because I shoot in 60 or 120 for B-roll. Originally I had tried using the Wi-Fi features of my A7 III to get photos and video to my iPad and phone, but that always give me lower resolution versions of everything. With the WD drive, I have access to Raw photos as well as original video files and either 1080 or 4K.
EDIT-2: I keep re-reading what I wrote and wanting to add more. The iPad Pro can get a little spendy and if you don't want to spend that much, I know for a fact that all of this works on my wife's new standard iPad. And with the the newest version, the apple pencil works as well. She can do the same stuff I can on my $800 iPad Pro on her $350 new iPad version. Although the processing power is a little slower, it is still very usable.
I think I got everything. Good luck!
Hey, does lumafusion allows different aspect ratios ?
Edit. I already read in the app that it does, I might buy it.
•Desde el principio entendí que las derrotas son parte de crecer pero hay algunas que si duelen, más que nada cuando sabes que perdiste por que te confiaste, o que no diste todo lo que podías dar etc.. pero aún en las que más sufro trato de dejar salir e ir la frustración y siguo entrenando y planeando próximas competencias
•Quiero seguir con este ritmo de competencia hasta los 36 aunque sea, después de eso competir de vez en cuando pero el deporte como tal pienso seguir practicando y enseñando hasta que me muera.
•Pues últimamente si no estoy haciendo algo que sienta yo es productivo me da como algún tipo de culpa, entonces paso la mayor parte de mi tiempo libre leyendo cosas como marketing o de mindset para deportes, mi hobby es hacer videos entonces también siempre estoy viendo cursos de como videografia o fotografía y veo algunos Youtubers que en su mayoría están enfocados a producción de video.
Igual me gustan los videojuegos pero ya trato de solo comprar de series de las que soy muy fan por que me clavo y me la paso jugando por horas cuando llego a comprar uno.
Ya, las ultimas y dejo de joder!
Las que quieras preguntar
•No me gusta ver casi ningún deporte, incluso del jiu jitsu me aburro ( pero aún así lo tengo que ver para estudiar por así decirlo ) , antes veía la UFC pero lo dejé de ver por qué es un volado verlo, hay carteleras muy buenas y otras que están para dormirse. Al mismo tiempo me gusta hacer casi cualquier deporte, football, basket, americano, volley, box, kickboxing todos esos y más los practiqué en algún momento. De hecho soy cinta negra de TKD también jaja
•Todavía está muy joven el deporte en Mexico, como ejemplo yo no compito en los torneos nacionales por que al parecer soy el único cinta negra de mi peso y de menos de 30 años qué hay, pero va creciendo poco a poco
•Soy muy tranquilo y normalmente trato de evitar problemas por que nunca sabes con quien te estás metiendo pero una vez un señor como de unos 35 le estaba pegando a mi tío de 63 años y pues ahí si me metí
•Que yo sepa debe de haber por ahí algunos videos promocionales para superfights que tuve pero esos los hicieron las organizaciones. Igual hay videos que yo hice pero fanmades creo que no. De hecho ya es difícil eso de los hl por que los derechos de la mayoría de los eventos importantes los compro una compañía que se llama Flo y son muy payasos tiran los videos
•La que más que gusta es una de las de Frankie va Maynard peor no recuerdo que número fue de todas
I know you didn’t mention it and you wanted a secluded spot but the view from the top deck of the Tokyo Tower at sunset is second to fucking none man, they even use this kind of nostalgic music that actually kinda make me want to cry so I think it is a nice spot.
Here is a pic I took with my iPhone as I still haven’t processed the ones that I took with the actual camera https://instagram.com/p/BlzokAmFcYe/
In person it is a hundredth times better than that pic.
Viajo cada mes y aunque a veces alguien me hace favor de llevarme la mayor parte de las veces llego y me voy del aeropuerto en Uber, que te valga verga.
Dude, you could fall asleep on a public bench wearing a suit made of money in Japan, and it would all still be there when you woke up.
I forgot an expensive tripod at a restaurant, came back like two hours later and it was right were I left it.
Same thing happened to me, he even asked his subscribers to comment on my videos to remove the strike
Love the ankle suggestion. Any tips on implementation in gi? Feel like I'd be more worried about guillotine rather than armbar because of the friction.
The escape works pretty much the same in the gi I just did it no gi because that’s what we were training that day.
I think the hand on the ankle is the main take away from the video because it prevents him from following you.
Do you mean Guillotine when you go to your knees ?
Yeah, to the knees - I feel like I'd have much more flexibility in terms of margin of error in no gi because in gi there'd just be so much ti grab onto and friction as you go to clench behind the legs, and any space is prime setup for getting choked out
Well from this position is hard to get guillotined because you end up facing in the same direction as your opponent, just make sure to bring the shoulder behind his leg so you can push him forward.
I also think that it is harder to do a Guillotine in the gi than in no gi because of the friction of the gi although it still is doable
En uno de tantos cursos mediocres que cursé en la Universidad, un profesor con fama bien ganada de negligente, huevón y barco. No me esforcé, ni los amigos con los que llevé ese curso (eramos seis en total, el resto eran de otros grupos o carreras). Terminó el curso y entregó calificaciones en su cubículo, por lo que cada quien fue a preguntar por la suya a la hora que mejor le pareció.
A mi me puso nueve y supuse que a todos les habría puesto la misma calificación. Al otro día, todos mis amigos estaban fuera del Departamento de aquél mamón, pues los había enviado a examen ordinario, ya que tenían menos de 7. Me extrañó mucho, ya que yo fui al menos igual de irresponsable que ellos. Luego llegó el último de los amigos del grupo, y él también tenía nueve. Lo único que nos diferenciaba del resto era que somos blancos, de ciudad y veníamos de "familias bien". Eso último no es que se lo dijéramos al docente, pero se nota en algunos detalles: ropa, modos, lenguaje, etc. Mis otros amigos eran morenos, campesinos y jodidos (al menos más que nosotros).
Como nada nos entusiasmaba tanto como reclamar por injusticias, fuimos con el profesor todos juntos, apenas llegó, para preguntarle por sus criterios de evaluación. No quería atendernos; dijo que la calificación era personal, etc. Un amigo (el otro blanco, que además era parte del Consejo Universitario) le demostró que el tenía más faltas, peor resultado en el único examen que puso y menos trabajos entregados que uno de los que reprobó, y le dijo que queríamos simplemente saber los criterios de evaluación antes de acudir a la Comisión de Honor y Justicia para poner una queja en su contra por racismo. El profesor no lo podía creer, se puso muy avergonzado, casi al punto de las lagrimas y decía, como para justificarse a mis compañeros reprobados, algo en lo que no habíamos caído en cuenta: ¡pero si yo soy más negro que ustedes! Lo cual era cierto.
El asunto se zanjó cuando pidió tiempo para revisar sus notas y argumentó de un supuesto error en el cálculo de los promedios. Terminó poniendo 9 a todos.
A partir de ahí siempre fue embarazoso toparme con él, como si se avergonzara y a mi me daba pena. Creo que su pinche racismo fue involuntario, un mero acto reflejo. Lo que está muy cabrón.
La parte de “yo soy más prieto” me recordó a un wey que iba conmigo en la primaria que era de color y después se volvió nazi según el
I was in Tokyo last month, my friend had a Pasmo card which he got from a friend who also was recently in Japan, he couldn’t use it anywhere, maybe he is too dumb, I actually thought that he was scammed haha.
Also why do you decided to spend nights at different hotels? I find it to time consuming to have to change hotels with the luggage etc so I would like to here the pros that you find, for example shibuya is not to far from shinjuku.
I’ll be going back next month and last time I didn’t bought the subway pass, do they work for all the subway lines ? I might get it this time.
Good luck on your trip, I hope your grandson has an awesome time

Did your friend charge the card at a machine? If they got it from a friend; the previous friend probably used up all of the available balance. You just go to a machine and put more money onto the card. It's not a pass as in you get free unlimited rides anywhere. You actually have to pay for what you use. Put ¥2,000 on the card until you use that balance up on fares etc. and replenish as needed.
They're useable pretty much everywhere. I've only know of one place that that doesn't accept IC cards PASMO/Suica/etc.
Yeah, he actually wanted to charge the card with 90% of the money he had but I advised him no to do so, he did charge it with like 3,000.
We asked at a few shops but they didn’t accept payment with it, I think he was able to pay for the subway tho.
Dude, how bad did it had to be to actually throw the gi and belt into the trash, I mean most people keep it in their closet in case they come back later or at least sell it.

Where in Mexico are you?
State of Mexico, were are you planning to go ?
If you only want the gym to break even so you can keep training with your students you should be fine but if you want it to be an actual business it is not going to be that easy.
Bjj is not a popular sport in Mexico so don’t expect to have a lot of students, at least in the beginning.
This might be a really common thing to do when in Japan but the view from the Tokyo Tower is amazing, if you can afford to pay for the top deck it is worth it a 100% if not the main deck is also really nice or you can get something similar for free at the shinjuku observatory.
Everything I did in Tokyo was amazing tho, such a great country.
I have the same exact one! 😄 I was hoping to pull either this or SSJ3 Goku.
I didn’t even looked at what one could get, I saw dragon ball, gave it one shot and walked the fuck away before I blew all my money in gachapons haha
Are these gachapons pretty common in Tokyo? I'm leaving for there tomorrow morning and would be fully willing to blow an obscene amount on these.
Yes, specially if you go to Akihabara, there are stores that only have gachapon machines, supposedly there is one that it is a big werehouse with and obscene amount of this machines
