BJ Penn can jump out of a pool and Wanderlei Silva can haul rocks in one, but Lyoto Machida can float, basically.

Slacklining uses nylon or polyester webbing anchored at two points. The line is not round and held rigidly taut as in tightrope walking, but rather is flat, dynamic, stretching, and bouncing like a long and narrow trampoline. Those who participate in slacklining are often called "slackers."

Smile when you call Machida a slacker.

Via Instagram...

And just because, Lyoto boogying at Rener Gracie and Eve Torres' wedding.

Thanks to MiddleEasy for the find! And apologies for the lack of Ronda Rousey in this blog; she will doubtless return in the next one.

Lyoto should have a slack off with Joe Warren. Joe brought his to the gym one time and he's a little ninja on that thing. Back flips and all Phone Post 3.0

thats fucking awesome.
No clue if it somehow has a tangible benefit to the cage and don't care lol. It's awesome and something about it being Machida doing it gives me that old feeling I used to get when I was a little kid watching martial arts b movies where the guys did all sorts of cool shit in their mcdojo training that I found amazing at the time.

Good ? My guess would be for better balance, for grapling and wrassling. Like how gsp trains gymnastics Phone Post 3.0
