comment What are the corrects words to greet our shifu?
Ah, that makes sense. Maybe reach out to an instructor at a local college to see if he can assist you. I'm taking a Chinese language class that starts in a few weeks that only lasts for 6 weeks - my guess is many other colleges or universities would have a similar resource. Maybe ask your instructor to write down the formalities so you can better understand them, saying you're going to do some research on the characters (or ideograms). Just a thought.

comment Self-defense against a bigger charging opponent
I agree. The original message, however, does not suggest the person with the question knows anything about martial arts. If I asked an engineering question when I don't give any indication that I know anything about engineering, I would likely to be turned off by what I'd consider to be jargon. To this person, the Japanese terms may be jargon. Not saying anything bad about the messages that contain it, but we don't know whether that is intimidating (and therefore, not helpful) to the person asking.
