comment Straight punch to the head and knockout
What more is there? The guy wanted to know where a straight punch would cause a knockout, not how a knockout works.

Jumping kicks are preferred if you're afraid of getting swept.

comment Question about wide swinging punches
Look up rabbit punch. It's illegal in boxing, but it's pretty effective if you can connect with it.

Unless you're in feudal Japan, I don't think you have to worry about strain on your body.

How "strategic" does a professional boxing or MMA match look to you?

comment How to deal with an excessively aggressive student that is turning people off sparring classes?
You're right. Though that's why I said to let him fight stronger/bigger opponents. He'll learn to be "great" soon enough.

comment Am I Being Used By My Dojo?
This reminds me of the early days of my club when I was making $20/month but had to pay $100/month to the governing body. I was NOT ammused either.

Qi is "life force". You can just as easily call it vitality.

comment Why a Samurai always wore katana on the left side?
He probably means both those things, considering the Katana is a two-handed sword.

comment what kind of gym work out is necessary for a Tae kwon do learner?
What I'm saying is: do both, don't just do one of the two types of endurance exercise. Your method teaches great muscle memory.

comment what kind of gym work out is necessary for a Tae kwon do learner?
That's a pretty good thing to do. But I don't THINK it's a good alternative. I may be wrong, but I think interval training would be better at developing endurance. Not that what you're doing isn't really good. I just think interval running or cycling is slightly better. Note that I said I THINK so. I didn't do any sort of scientific study into the matter.

You go for a run, but you sprint full out for 30 seconds, then jog for 30 seconds, then run, then jog. Do this until you feel like you want to die.

They didn't die from a single punch. Which was my point.

Well, it is your right as a faceless entity on the internet to disagree with me.

comment What is the best way to avoid armlocks?
If there aren't any rules, then biting is the best counter. bite the fingers clean off if you have to. You might have to explain yourself in court afterwards, but the situation will dictate what you should and should not do.

comment To what extent does height give an advantage in any type of fight?
Fair enough. I used to play Rugby. I was a tighthead prop. I can understand how this could work.
