Why does he do this? I know in Kendo you are supposed to call your strike but he isn't even swinging at a body. He is deflecting projectiles.

He just knew he has to yell something so he has a 1/3 chance of getting it right. And if you yell them fast enough, no one can tell what you were aiming for.

The only advantages of living in the city would be internet speed and shorter commute times.

Rural areas are far cheaper, less violent, cleaner air, more space, less people and other good things. Usually, your best bet is to compromise between the two by living in a suburb.

Suburbs are fucking horrible. The sprawl created by them exacerbates air pollution because it forces people to become too car dependent.

It's probably a major part of his usual training regiment. Moving back and forth while doing consecutive strikes of all three in a single breath was something you'd work up to when you practice kendo.

False. Sprawl is only a serious problem in Northeastern United States and I suppose other shitholes in Europe.

I live in the Southeast. Subarban sprawl is a problem regardless of where you live simply due to the fact that it's suburban sprawl. The way it's laid out, the distances between things like your home, grocery store, work, school, etc. all contribute to that shit. It's an unsustainable way of life.
>>
>>100843657
>>100843238

They are kendo terms, but they relate to actual parts of the body that you're striking (men is mask/head, kote is wrist, dou is body) - they see use outside of kendo as well.

Modern western life is completely unsustainable. I hope you just aren't figuring this out now.

Work and Uni are the only things that are a significant distance for me and that's only about 20 miles or so.

Truly, I'd rather live in a rural area, but that unfortunately means shit internet since google would rather invest fiber in Uganda than a country that has citizens that make money.

Urban life is actually far more sustainable than suburban. Smaller ecological footprint, and compaction of living space and travel distances further benefits the environment by an overall net reduction of greenhouse gas emissions.

I could give you some citations of actual peer reviewed journals, but I can't be bothered at the moment.

The internet speed isn't relevent. However fast it is, if it works internet gives you access to a ridiculous amount of information, an unprecedented repository. Information is the essential component of modern society, and spreading it means giving people the opportunity to do better with their lives.
>>
>>100844074
>overall net reduction of greenhouse gas emissions.
And I should qualify this statement by saying reduction relative to suburban sprawl. There is still greenhouse gas emissions from urban areas, but much less so compared to suburban.
>>
>>100844074
Oh please. Cities are absolutely dependent on a shitton of imports and exports as well as tons of electricity and just power in general. This will rape your fossil fuels and pollute everywhere. Is a suburb slightly more unsustainable than a city? Maybe. Does that mean modern cities are remotely sustainable? Fuck no.

You want to live a sustainable lifestyle? Go out somewhere in the middle of nowhere, grow your food, raise animals if you want, maybe drill a well. That's how you go green.

>>100844145
Sure, but Google is a business not a charity organization.

There's a thing called kiai in japanese martial arts that basically translates to calling out your attacks makes them stronger. Monkey is a kendoka, needed to shout to get in proper swings like they're all taught to and Men! Dou! Kote! sounds less monotonous than going Toh! a lot.
>>
>>100844421
>That's sustainable for you and only you.
No shit. I'm not trying to feed the world.

A modern city is completely unsustainable. Lets take something obvious like food. All that shit comes from somewhere. It has to be shipped coming using god knows how much petroleum every year. It's no secret that oil is going to eventually too much to get. Pretty much all of the "easy" oil is long gone.

The point is that cities are dependent on way too many external sources that are, in turn, dependent on flimsy things like fossil fuels. It's all going to come apart someday.

>>100844589
Cities are more efficient for storing humans than spreading them all over. The cost of feeding those people doesn't decrease if you spread them out and have them grow their own crops; you just explode land-use and energy requirements for hvac, transportation, agriculture, and waste disposal.

>>100844877
Jesus christ, you're missing the point. It's more efficient, FOR NOW. It's not going to always be that way. It's unsustainable.

I assume you mean can't there. And no they can't. Cities are major economic centers in which exports and imports are vital to its life. Today's cities are huge and they need that quick rate.

Everything. Food, Starbucks, Electronics, Entertainment, McDonalds, etc.

>>100845993
>Everything. Food, Starbucks, Electronics, Entertainment, McDonalds, etc.

Shipping food from nearby farms isn't that big of a deal, you just can't have super exotic foods that would cost a lot to bring over, some things would be more expensive, but that's what happens when convenience goes away.

You can still make electronics with natural supplies/recycling old material, entertainment would be pretty unaffected, stuff like the internet would still be in effect because it's a system that isn't really reliant on anything outside of electricity.

Chain restaurants will continue to exist as long as there is food to be cook with.
