comment How long should it take to gain fighting proficiency in tai chi?
Personally I love this question, and I really want to answer it... I just can't even begin to decide where to start. It's a bit like trying to tell someone how long it takes to learn to dance, only assuming (but with no actual idea) that they have legs.

Fascinating. Sounds like a lot of resources need updating.

comment Training while exhausted
Good; but was "training while exhausted" ever advised for new techniques in the martial arts? I've only ever heard this approach for a means of removing excess/waste movement from a well understood technique as a means of absorbing the principles. The criticism of crossfit is relevant for Fitness.SE, but is it non-sequiter for MA.SE?

Interestingly too, it was Funakoshi who also is first credited with writing Karate as 空手 ("empty hand"), from the previously common 唐手 ("China/Tang hand", denoting the connection to the Chinese origins).

comment Short leg issue and wide-soled shoe
Personal views of chiropractics aside, hip alignment could be a factor. Either way, a podiatrist may be able to prescribe a custom orthotic to help your rather unique situation.

comment Is martial arts training 'inadequate' for the real world?
Sam Harris is a bit of a doom-and-gloom author; a bit negative. Self defense training is about increasing your odds of survival; on a long enough timeline, survival rates all fall to 0.

comment How should a novice train if unable to join a dojo yet?
Moving doesn't necessarily mean you can't train in a dojo. Find an art you're interested in, then go and look at google maps for training in the last few locations. If you have time to run or exercise, you can find time to train. If you want to learn a martial art, study it; if you just want to get in shape, you can join a gym!
