comment What Defines Something As A Martial Art?
@mitro That said, I'm still not sure I understand the distinction you're making between a "martial art" and a "self-defense system." Can you elaborate on that? Beauty is in the eye of the beholder, right? Anything cohesive enough to be taught means it has rules. Any every martial art evolves and adapts, right?

@mitro I want to make clear that I wasn't in any way trying to call you out for your answer, it just served as the most recent example.

comment what kind of gym work out is necessary for a Tae kwon do learner?
Interestingly I do TKD bag drills specifically as my interval training. I pick a combo and run it at full strength and speed for 2 min, 30 second rest. I run each combo from each side and maybe three or four different sets of combos as my endurance allows.

comment Proper Foot Orientation on Spinning Back Kick
@JuannStrauss Interesting. He seems to be doing a hybrid of the two I described, with his hips largely staying pointed away (even specifically mentioning this) but turning his foot so his toes point to the side. Thanks for posting that.

comment What are good martial arts for aging bodies?
Yeah, the research on basically all NSAIDs on strength training is all over the place. I feel like I've read a dozen papers in both directions conclusively proving that they do/do not negatively affect strength training.
