comment Good sources on using sticks for grappling/locks?
It's a decent book, which does cover some rudimentary skills in stick fighting, but it (purposefully or not) leaves large gaps. It's more introductory. The size of the stick is irrelevant when it comes to locking – if you can do it with a hanbo, you can do it with a stick, a rope, a bo, a flashlight, a knife, a sword, a magazine, or a bundle of spaghetti. You just have to understand the characteristics of the weapon.

comment Why should I wear my gi with left side over right side?
The nara period was over 1000 years ago, and about 700-800 years before most arts of Japanese origin in which one would wear a gi were even codified.

comment Video of a person doing Qigong where somehow many others cannot lift him easily?
Annie Abbot, aka "The Georgia Magnet", circa 1884, toured and performed hot on the heels of Lulu Hurst, the original "Georgia Wonder". It's a practiced feat of leverage and center of gravity, and has nothing to do with Chi/Qi.

@JPHellemons which is why there's four paragraphs explaining the origin of modern wafuku, the law affecting its wear at various points, and the customs of order in Japanese culture.
