Which is where wrestling comes in.

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.

comment Overcoming fear/anxiousness and dealing with pain
"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).

Given the question, my answer needs no further elaboration.

comment Martial art without exam and secrets
Of course, but the OP seems to be looking for a discipline where the teacher wouldn't be holding back for fear of being beaten by one of his students, which seems to be his main concern. You rarely if ever have that problem in boxing or wrestling because the coach is either retired or has been nothing but a coach his entire life.

comment BJJ Instructor and Fighter Ranks
If one substitutes BJJ for "soccer", it makes quite a lot of sense.

It's not a contest ;) I was just saying that you're looking at a lot of trouble even if you win your appeal.

comment Taekwondo Block Bunkai Vs. Shotokan Block Bunkai
You would be surprised how much time you have to perform a proper block when you're in a self-defense situation against a non-martial artist. I was in a fight with a guy once after I had had 3 glasses of wine and I could block each and every one of his punches without worrying about it. The angrier someone is, the slower he moves and the longer his swings. While a proper block won't work in competition, it's pretty effective in the stereotypical bar fight. They also look cool to the ladies [citation needed].

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.
