comment Purpose of exchange block in toigye form
I've seen it performed as if it were a block in many performances, which is why I added the comment. I say it's a bit of stylistic license because there's no way you're going to be ripping someone's junk off if they have pants on, ergo the move is for entertainment purposes only.

Great piece of advice. The last thing you want is to come across as an arrogant dork.

comment What is the difference between Muay Thai and Kickboxing?
That's not the point. The point is that you can join a specialised fitness programme to get fit. That leaves the instructor to teach you how to fight instead of spending time on conditioning. Elite fighters may have 3 hours per day to train, but the regular student only has 45 minutes. It is extremely important to make the most of those 45 minutes and the best thing is to hand off the fitness portion to someone else.

I am just saying that it's probably going to be much more boring than it sounds.

comment What is misogi?
Misogi refers to ritual cleansing by water. I think someone might be telling you to take a shower after practice ;) I don't know much about Aikido, but I do know that we were Taught Tae Kyu as part of our Taekwondo training. Tae Kyu is supposedly top secret deadly stuff, but it basically boiled down to "if a guy grabs your arm, poke him in the eye or kick him in the nuts until he lets go". Don't expect Misogi to be any different.

comment How to defend yourself when you are outclassed?
Bite. I once saw a guy bite his opponent's testicle. it was extremely effective. It was a desperate situation though.
