Soooo there is a tournament coming up in two months, and some people have been telling me thats its good to remain abstinent two months before the tournament, and that it'll help. Is this true and why? Also... does it absolutely have to be two months... this is probably gonna more difficult than the match itself.

Garbage. I doubt if Mike Tyson was abstinent for any length of time in his career, and he seemed to do fine.

Dear Heritik:



Oh brother are you being sold a ~bill of goods~. Look if you are talking about helping YOURSELF... ok, spend the time training ! If you are talking about abstinence with/from someone ELSE... very different issue.

Imposing a period of celebacy <sp.?> can be good, learning to control our impulses is truly discipline. But there is no need to engage in this type of thing. Finding someone to help us relax can be a wonderful thing.

Old wives tale, good for serious discipline but unnecessary unless you are entering a monestary. Might consider abstaining a few hours BEFORE the tournament but question the need beyond that level...

Oh honey...you won't mind if we don't.... for the next two months will you....

Jeff(I'd have to defend myself for real...ducking front kicks)

Humps, lumps, bumps?

Well...at least I understand now why ring fighters are so mean, mad and in a hurry to get the fight over.

Dont abstain- you want your mind on the fight come the tournament. Turn up a little 'tense', a ring-card girl passes close enough to smell her perfume and 'wham' you will be on her leg like a randy dog!

This will lead to disqualification, prosecution, and a cleaning bill for her tights.

Be a lover and a fighter my friend

This caught my attention and I had to laugh. You don't have to worry about abstaining from copulating just for a fight ... just get married. Heck, I can have it anytime my wife wants.

Heretik, unfortunately, as usual, these idiots have got it competely wrong. It has widely been practiced in many cultures and has yielded many champions. There is a specific Chinese Chi Gong form called Fol-u Som Mor which actually teaches its students to harness "unused" sexual energy by way of an posture called "No Noki Fe-u". I recomend no nookie!

If you abstain, you might be arrested at the tournament for "sexual assault"... if you don't... for assault with a dead weapon...

Too funny...

I once interviewed a Macedonia Pehlivan wrestler who told me his master abstained before a big bout. When he asked the master how he managed, he was told (in Macedonian, I imagine), "I go outside every morning and get some freezing cold water from the well and tip it between my legs, over my genitals."

I wonder which made him meaner, the abstinence or the water.

I saw on a sciene show that there was two teams playing soccer and the one who was losing at halftime went out and... you know with their wife/girlfriend and then they came back and dominated so it could help you to do it right before your match. One less thing youll have to worry about fighting

Man I have to check this part of the forum more often But seriously, being sexually active has no effect on your athletic ability. It's only mental, Whether you fight better tense or relaxed is what you'll have to figure out.

It does seem to have some effect:

Basically your testosterone levels spike at the 7th day, and declines afterwards.

Sounds like garbage to me. Funny garbage but garb age none the less. Who am I to say whether or not you should "do the deed'. Just go fight.

trainers and coaches for olympic teams forbid sexual release during all training to avoid waisting Q'i and Jing but there are susposidly Taoist Q'i Gong techniques to retain these substances after release
