@JohnP, this is in reference to punching, not kicking.

comment Using a punching bag without stand
Or, hey, another handy use for trees: they have branches. You can hang the punching bag from a sturdy branch with some rope. Even apartment dwellers can sometimes get away with this, provided there is wooded area around their apartment complex. Just remember to take it down when you're done :)

comment How to avoid calf pain with heel stomp
What part of your foot is contacting the stage? Heel? Intentional ground stomping through stance transitions is a part of some kung fu styles, and it must be done in a way that makes the weight sink with the stomp and the entire sole should land flat. Perhaps you can repurpose this movement?

comment What is the strategic difference between Krav Maga and Systema?
This answer would be a good one if it answered the question asked. The question was "What are the general tactics of Krav Maga as opposed to Systema"? You only discussed training regime, not tactics.

comment Why is this samurai able to chop pellet gun bullets
Sardathrion is 100% correct here. There is nothing at all mystical about using a sword to destroy a tiny object. I have watched the video now, and the only thing "spiritual" going on here is the swordsman's intense focus. Other than that, it's all training, training, training. Some people get into martial arts because they think there's a mystical secret. Those people quickly leave when they find how painful/boring/mundane the training actually is.

Maybe this question would do better on the physics stack exchange?
