Continuing the tradition of opening one gift on Christmas Eve...

So I’m handed a package with this tag on it

and while I am pretty much obsessed with Tomb Raider and people often nickname me Lara, I can assure you that Lara is not my real name (nor do I have a butler, much less know an actual person named Winston)

and by the way, my parents are just sitting there and shooting me the smuggest grins ever

so I rip the paper off and

PLUS LARA CROFT

EQUALS PERFECTION

AND THEN MY DAD JUST GRINS EVEN WIDER AND SAYS “WHEN I SAW A BOOK WITH A PICTURE OF YOU ON THE COVER I JUST HAD TO GET IT”

so naturally, half an hour after I got it, I’m already on page 150

The idea behind this particular Silat technique is for it to be a “shock take down” and the technique itself is known as “Harimau” or “Grounded tiger art.”
As the name implies, the idea is to surprise your opponent with what is essentially a feint into a take down.
The right foot hooks behind the attacker’s right foot, the arm goes through the legs acting almost like a spear that pulls the body weight through resulting in a shoulder push. The arm also twists, setting the knees off balance and assisting with the take down.

The important thing to note is that, once he’s down, he doesn’t use a typical “ground and pound” technique to beat the fuck out of the attacker.
Due to Silat’s rather vicious nature, he goes for knee breaks, elbow breaks and elbows to the temple. This way, if he’s successful, he can get back onto his feet and his opponent can’t.
In a real life situation, this allows you to get up and run the hell away…or call the police…or perform a victory dance.

Spoken Word- Response to Anonymous White Man asking “Why White Guys don’t get their own club like women and minorities”

This is INCREDIBLE, two of my favorite lines:

"The last time white men created something inclusive, genocide took off its shoes and got comfortable"

"The truth is Caucasians do have their own club- it’s called Capitol Hill!"

Sit back and enjoy! Major thanks to slackersprosper for sharing this with me.
