Mathematician who is going deep into collaborations with commercial sector businesses. They have me working on different technologies and throw really interesting problems at me.

Love thinking too deeply about almost anything; sea turtle speed. Maybe I will manage to outrace the sail fish! lol

comment In MMA, should you try to block punches with your glove in the same way you could in Muay Thai?
what is the difference between weaving and slipping? (not sure if I know precisely what they are, haven't heard of them in practice)

comment Risk of brain damage in casual/moderate Muay Thai sparring
It can't be more than sports like Rugby, or american football.

comment Should I stay in a Muay Thai gym where the fighters hit without much restraint or consideration?
I am not sure about their egos, but the cameraderie is quite rare amongst them.

comment Is it allowed in Muay Thai to throw a cartwheel kick with your standing leg when the other is held?
@Sardathrion, legal in the rules of Muay Thai-is it allowed? Can such moves or similar moves be done by the person who has his leg trapped in another's grip?

comment How to train for improved balance?
Just a point; for box jumps make sure that you are landing on relatively soft surfaces. do not land on hard surfaces, this can easily create knee and ankle problems

comment Best to learn for self defense: Wrestling, Boxing, or Jiu Jitsu
I agree with slugster's comment with a slight variation; after trying all three I would stick to the one that you are best at or enjoy the most. Its best to work on the one you get to speed with rather than force yourself to do something which feels unnatural

comment What techniques exist for blocking knees in a clinch?
great videos! and perfect how you linked them to the timing to see immediately the move in action! I have been trying to get it to work in practice, but looks like I need more practice^^ they simply do not fall over like in the videos

also, have you seen a technique of turning the body and placing the shin at the base of the opponent's thigh and then leaning on it while holding their head/neck with the leading arm?

comment What techniques exist for blocking knees in a clinch?
great answer. I saw this a few times in training I think, by more experienced fighters. I wasn't exactly sure of how the mechanics worked. It makes sense and I will practice it :)

comment In Muay Thai during clinching, can you hold an opponents glove to your chest by pressing on it?
@Krokop, the opponent puts glove on chest, and the recipient puts his glove 'on top' of the opponent glove, so that the opponent's glove is sandwiched between the chest and glove

@Krokop, are there no Thai boxers here to give a thorough answer? UFC will have some great techniques with more wrestling though. An arm on the opposite hip opens you up to an elbow easily.

comment What information should I consider when choosing a martial art to study?
I find that the physical exercise derived from grappling cannot be matched. I do not know a single sport more exhausting than 5 minutes of wrestling

comment Why can't I bring my knees up fast enough to block low kicks in Muay Thai?
could you give some tips for each of these situations? And a general rule for the stance? And maybe describe the basic lifting motion? thanks

comment What are good solutions for MMA training with half long hair?
I tried this yesterday, it is great that the point where the hair is tied does not get rubbed on directly, but it does not really help the front area from being rubbed and hair coming loose from there

Interesting answer, I never thought of the tail going on the side, will try it out and get back to confirm!
