comment What are good martial arts for aging bodies?
As a long overdue update, I'm currently no longer doing martial arts, but I am doing a combination of power lifting and strongman training. It's been a fun pursuit in and of itself.

The joints aren't at the point of needing medical attention. It takes two days for my leg to fully recover and then after that it's fine. However, I don't like the inflamed knee the day after. It hurts all day long, and well into the day after.

comment How, historically, did American push-hands get so restrictive in comparison to Chinese push-hands?
I wonder how much of this is influenced by insurance companies. In a regional TKD tournament that has gone on for over 4 decades, what constitutes legal contact and protective gear has gotten steadily more restrictive--even for upper belts. This is due largely to placating the insurance companies who have no concept of martial arts or whether the measures they require lesson or increase the risk of injury.
