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

What does ground fighting have to do with Qi?

comment What statistics are there or whether Qi is metaphysical or physcial
I don't have an "opinion" on the matter. I asked an actual grand master and he said it's a load of BS. The fascination with Qi stems from the fact that the Chinese languages are very old and therefore very strange to the Western ear.

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.

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.

It's a principle one can apply to any grappling art. Though I would wager that the shorter player(s) might have been stronger.

And always remember that the other guy is also a bit scared and your kicks will also be shaking him. It feels exactly the same for both people in a fight.

comment How to “man up” to begin a martial art?
Yes. They probably wouldn't have the power to put any force behind the kick. Don't worry about it. The first time someone kicked me and it actually hurt was at a national championships and we were both black belts. Before that your opponents simply don't have enough power to really hurt you unless they're much bigger and/or older than you. But that doesn't happen until you're ready and able to deal with it.

Well, there's something wrong with your skeleton. Go see someone who knows what's what.
