comment Are there any styles that are geared to people over 61?
@SteveWeigand, I can see now that my answer may be inappropriate, as the OP does specifically ask for Karate styles. The question I was answering (not the one asked) was "what are some less violent styles for older people, only I don't like Tai Chi"

nod I don't see any conflict between what you said and what I said about breakfalls. It seems like the main issue is non-violence. When I mention non-violence, I'm talking about Ueshiba's words and teachings. I'm well aware that not all or even most dojos conform to this teaching, which I suppose I should have said.

Cheesy, yes, but not bad for an old guy. "On Earth" <hits you in the groin> "As it is in heaven" <pokes you in the eye> lmao

"Suddenly we are told we can't do that." By who? Why not? Should you care?

Shopping recommendations are off-topic. Try asking about what to look for in a dummy instead.

comment What did Dai Longbang mean by Qi?
You've stated a lot of things in this question, but it isn't clear to me what the question is. Does the title of the question still even fit what you're trying to ask? Try writing some sentences that end in a question mark.

comment Has anyone collected an openlist of “best practices/lessons learned” for seminars
Hi. This questions good, but not a good fit for our format. Two reasons: one, it's not specifically about martial arts, even if you are talking about an MA seminar which I assume you are. scheduling, marketing are business questions, not MA questions. two, there is no definitive answer to your question. it will generate a list of good, but non-definitive answers.

comment What did Dai Longbang mean by Qi?
I don't know what dai longbang meant by it, but chi means "breath", or alternatively energy, not in the sense of "hadoukens", but as in "I feel good today, I have a lot of energy." Looking at the character, it is a pictograph of rice in a pot giving off steam, and so could also mean food-energy.

comment Purpose of exchange block in toigye form
Can you explain why you don't think the "outward backfist strike" is exactly what it looks like: an "outward backfist strike"? In other words, why are you looking for a different interpretation? It will also help if you link to a video of the Toigye form along with the minute mark where the move first occurs.

comment Solo martial art learning
You can't ask a DVD a question. You can't feel a DVD's technique. A DVD won't hound you that you're doing it wrong. An instructor might miss something now and again, but if he/she is a good instructor, they will eventually catch your screw-ups. I can't imagine a martial arts class so large that a student wouldn't get at least one comment per class. Each and every single class I've had has been worth more than a DVD.

comment How to improve speed, strength and condition for Kyokushin karate?
Welcome to the site. This question is not a good fit for our Q&A format since there are several questions, and it isn't clear what you're asking. Try refining the question to ask just one, very specific thing. stackoverflow.com/help/how-to-ask
