Rafal, please do not post multiple answers unless each one is fundamentally different. If you have something to add or edit, please update your other answers or respond to others in comments. The Q&A model of Stack Exchange is not a discussion forum.

comment Is martial arts training 'inadequate' for the real world?
One or two downvotes do not represent a majority of people here, only one the one or two who casted the votes. Likewise, people can also upvote your answer. In the future, you can edit your own answer and add on to it if you have something to add rather than post multiple answers. This site is not forum so I suggest starting with the faq and the about page to get a better idea of what the site is and how it works.

comment Best headphones for use during training?
First of all, this question is highly subject and not constructive for Stack Exchange. You'll end up with varying answers across the board, each one with their own pros and cons and opinions. Second, unless headphones are integral and a direct part of a martial arts system and its physical training, this question is off topic for this site.
