comment How to defend against dog attacks?
I'm not sure if dogs can smell the fear or you or not but they can certainly detect panic, if the dog isn't rabid - it makes sense to keep calm (this is from my experience with aggressive dogs) - Of course if it attacks first you better be ready to snap its neck or kick it in the face.

comment How did the colour belt ranking system originate?
I heard a story from my previous Sensei who taught karate : white represents seed below the snow in winter, green is a plant sprouting in spring, blue is the plant reaching for the sky and so on. (till the bark hardness from brown to black)

comment If I'm worried about concussions, should I train tae kwon do, or karate, or neither?
I use the elbow to protect my head from kicks (be careful this can break the opponents ankles) and for punches I just dodge/block them.

comment How do I keep a safe distance from potential threats without escalating the situation?
I've read the book "Watch My Back", you are right it contains several tricks for avoiding threats and fighting opponents IRL, he used when he was a bouncer. Maybe when I go thru it again I'll write an answer.

comment Wrist strength for sticks
Can you comment on the approximate weight of the stick(s)? Are these escrima sticks? In one of the styles I practice, hot oil massages were used on joints. I had similar problems with the Otta but it went away with these massages.

Too bad this is limited to boxing, usually I use my legs against the stronger heavier opponent.

comment Training while exhausted
It is too broad to be asked to be honest. (And really hard to answer, I'll try to find out more about this and answer it myself)
