comment How do I choose a boxing glove?
aberration: that is an option, but would probably add to much weight. kioopi: That is very interesting. Around here ( in ontario, canada) I was under the impression that it was 16 all the time. Could just be our government trying to hard to keep people safe.

comment Aikido Forward Roll
great answer David! I would have to disagree with SAJ14SAJ. "Going for Distance" aka Reaching Long applies to male and female rollers.

comment Endurance problems while practicing martial art
i agree 100% with this answer. get more fit is all fine and dandy, but judging by the "i wake up tired" and i eat a lot of sugar. it's likely not a fitness problem. Fix your diet and it's amazing how much more "fit" a person will seem.
