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

comment Is it respectful for someone of a coloured rank to date a black belt?
Dictating who can date whom is cult behavior. No one at any school has a right to tell you that you can't. HOWEVER. They should expect you to behave professionally toward each other inside the dojo, both in terms of flirting, and if the relationship goes sour. You are walking a fine line. If it doesn't work out, one of you will probably quit.

comment Boxing vs karate for self-defense?
That's a good point. Fighting is the last part of self-defense. Self-awareness, environment-awareness, and preventative measures should come long before the fight.

comment I want to learn bo jutsu, there is no bo jutsu dojo within 300KM where I can get in
Yes it's possible to pick up new martial arts if you have experience in related arts. I don't see a lot of overlap between Judo/Jujitsu and stick fighting. Do you have someone you can practice with (i.e. learn together)? Have you looked at Karate/Taekwondo schools in your area (these will sometimes teach weapons, the bo being chief among them)? Does it have to be bojutsu per se, or will staff training in a kung fu style suffice?
