Pay attention to his feet as he throws the second punch, he parries a kick with his leg then goes in for the kill That's one hardcore pugilist

Does anyone has any idea about the typical size of winners when there is competition that is not divided in height classes (like gladiators or traditional chinese Kung-Fu)? I was watching a roman empire movie when this came to my mind, I always assumed they would be gigantic athetic types but great fighting legends are commonly described as "tall", not giants. Is this because it "looks better" when describing a great feat to have the odds against the hero or do you see some reasons why bigger guys would fall easier?

I know this is not the exact place for this question but I'm not going to open a thread for it. Does anyone recommends some channel (like Netflix) that is particulary good in marcial arts movies? There is a ton of films and actors I've been discovering in YouTube fight scenes that I never even heard about and seem not to find anywhere else.

Daily training.

Blood Idk any specific channels but I can recommend good movies. Random titles among my favorites at the top of my head:

Ong Bak 1& 2, Ip Man trilogy, Eastern Condors, Shangai Express, Chocolate, My Lucky Stars 1&2, Police Story 1&2,  Dragons Forever, Wheels on Meals, Gorgeous, Special Forces.

Of course there's tons more, but these I highly recommend.

Back in training and feeling rusty! I felt I was getting back in shape and then had to give up for 3 months. And prior to that I was away for a year. And prior to that.. For crying out loud, I want a stable training schedule already! Soon there will also be kali sessions but it is doubtful I will be able to attend. But then I sometimes miss aikido days(there are 3 sessions per week) so I could maybe catch up on kali the other days..

Did some weapon training too and I have to say, I've missed the feel of the jo. Broomstick action!

Seen this before, these guys must have had incredible flexibility.
