comment How does a non-grappler train to be ready to avoid grappling in a real-world situation?
Even the best non-grappling fighters tend to get screwed up by grappling. And it's because they simply don't recognize the situation and therefore don't have any understanding of what to do in it. It's all how you train, not the style. If you want to prevent someone from grappling you, taking you to the ground, etc., then you have to be comfortable with that situation. You get comfortable with it by specifically training in it. Simply saying "step back and control the distance" isn't enough. Reality doesn't often work out nicely like you want it to. You will get caught. Then what?

comment What are the functional differences between the five main T'ai Chi styles?
It certainly does come down to the particular teacher. There's a Chen style teacher in one of the cities I lived in once who was from China. I learned that he was actually a businessman in China and had only a month or two of training in Chen style and nothing else. He learned mostly through video tape. But people flocked to him, because 1) he's Chinese, and 2) it's Chen style. In the same town are many much better Yang, Wu, and Sun style teachers who happen to be Caucasian. In other words, don't fall for hype and appearances. Ask around about who knows what.

Oh, and Hao style is usually called "Wu (Hao)" Style, to differentiate it from the more popular Wu style.
