comment Adapting karate to stage combat
I'm not sure that we actually would, because while we know the martial arts principles, I find that what people think martial arts looks like… isn't what it actually looks like. Meanwhile, there are entire courses in stage combat that aren't reliant on a martial arts background. It's been touched on, but I'd suggest opening a meta topic specifically on the topicality of this question.

comment How do I coach her mindset to better suit karate competitions?
I will stand by my statement: You can't (or rather really shouldn't) coach her on attitude or approach if you are dating her. You can be supportive–particularly when she is struggling or failing–and you can point her at resources that might help. But at a very fundamental level attitude and confidence are something that a coach needs to manage and help her with, in ways that you are not in a position to help with.

comment Correct usage of the title “Master”?
Cool, thanks for the link and the question. I have modified what I said to make it a little broader, include a few more cultures, and make my point more explicit.

comment Are students with disabilities tested differently?
It's also worth noting (though this is more of a meta discussion) that the proper answer to "polling opinion" questions is to close them, not to wikify them. See, for example, my comment here.

comment Relaxation Techniques
Not really. You can be mentally tense and physically relaxed or vice-versa. There are links there, but they aren't the same thing. More importantly, you are looking for two answers. One is physical, the other is mental. If you are looking for two answers, it implies that you should have two questions.

There are two questions here. This might be better off being split: "How can I [physically] relax quickly"
