comment How can I improve my teaching of ukemi or break falling?
@StasM: It's about mentality; you're comfortable and safe in your idea of it, and won't change that. In training my students, they're not given a choice, instead having to trust me. I work a lot with what has been called here "subversive means". I'm not the most popular sort, but my methods do work. Again, I'm not taking them onto asphalt or concrete; I'm taking them onto grass. This has its own suggestion.

comment Wing chun modification with only palm heel strikes?
@Trevoke: Contradictory. Fighting methods are martial arts – codified systems of combat trained for personal defense, sport, spiritual development, or health.

comment Why are firearms not part of the martial arts world?
@dmckee: To clarify, it was muskets that were introduced at that time. The hand-held cannon was introduced by the Chinese earlier. Basically a big lacquered vase held in the unenviable position between the legs and fired (as one technique), or braced in the arms... They had a nasty habit of blowing up after a couple of shots.
