comment Do martial arts encourage bad posture habits?
Have your doctor test for osteoporosis. Or tell him there's something wrong with your posture and you'd like to know what's wrong. He'll know which questions to ask and which tests to do. If anything, Martial Arts will dramatically improve your posture as your core muscles are strengthened and your suppleness improves.

comment Avoiding Knuckle Scrapes with Bag Work
Although I think I misunderstood. I think the OP is more concerned about the fact that his knuckles (the right ones) aren't making contact first.

I suspect he may be scraping his knuckles while throwing hooks and crosses.

linsead oil is a good option. We used to treat our cricket bats with it and it worked wonderfully.

If you think you can't express yourself clearly in English, wait until you see how unclear NATIVE english speakers can be.

Lift heavy weights then. You want to build strength, so focus on things like deadlifts and other exercises that make you stronger and focus on multiple muscle groups. Try this site and select "Build Muscle" bodybuilding.com/fun/find-a-plan.html.

comment What is the liability issuewith personal defense classes?
It's not really a "conspiracy theory". The police are taught a brand of martial arts that they're not allowed to share with civilians. For the simple reason that they don't want you to figure out ways to fight back or resist arrest.

Have friend take one of the other classes, then share the training between you two.

Though, to be fair to Kung Fu, I've seen some really impressive dedication from masters and students alike.

comment Aikido in a street fight?
You're right of course. I won't deny it. But I feel it is my duty to lead the next generation in the right direction. There are only a handful of students who will ever have the time, money and will to undergo the Senshisei course, or go to train with the Shaolin monks. So for the rest of them to try Aikido or Kung Fu is a waste of time. They would be much better off trying one of the proven arts.

comment Aikido in a street fight?
I would attribute the relative effectiveness of the Senshisei course more to the 33 hours of intensive training they undergo per week than the fact that they're training Aikido. Though I will concede that 33 hours of training per week for 11 months could get you to a point where Aikido (or a subset of it) is effective.

comment Aikido in a street fight?
I once saw a Kyukushin practitioner take on 10 jackasses. He took down 5 with an axe kick and just kept going at the others until he got so aggressive he pulled his katana out of his car's trunk, at which point we had to stop him. It was beautiful and scary at the same time.

comment How to defeat a much stronger and bigger opponent?
Those are some useful tips. Purists might not like it, but this is fighting and whatever helps you win is good. Or at the very least, one should take note that techniques like this exist.

comment Defence against Wing Chun
Wing Chun is aimed at teaching novices how to defend against skilled Kung Fu fighters. At that, it's brilliant, but it was never meant as a serious competitor to martial arts in general.

"internal" martial arts refers to chinese martial arts that originated inside China, as opposed to "external" martial arts that e.g. have roots in Buddhism (Buddhism originating in India).
