comment Exercises to improve balance when kicking
@RubenTavernier, I'm not saying that you should be up on your tiptoes. I'm saying that when you rotate your bottom foot (e.g., for side kick, my bottom heel needs to end up pointed towards the target), I should rotate on the ball of that foot, not the heel. For true power, my bottom heel may end up resting lightly on the mat but the strength of the foot for balance is near the toes.

comment What is the oldest documented Eastern Martial Art that is still practiced?
@Trevoke, okay, then at what point did a club cease to be a blunt instrument of no interest and become a Bo staff or equivalent?

comment What is the oldest documented Eastern Martial Art that is still practiced?
@Trevoke, unless the terms are defined well, this question is just a little too loose. For example, I could say "blunt instrument bashing" or "archery" and you'd have a hard time arguing that anything else is "older."

I don't think this question is answerable. "Documented", "Eastern" and "Martial Art" would all have to be carefully defined. For example, does a club count?
