comment What are the main uses of aikido in self-defense?
What I said about untrained fighters refers to your last sentence: "Do you really expect to get jumped by a trained fighter?" which is to me a ludicrous excuse for not becoming a trained fighter oneself.

Uh, this is not true: "karate was taught to footmen and aikido was taught to generals." Nor will aikido work "at any distance". Beyond that, the entire philosophical approach of assuming an untrained opponent is aesthetically unappealing.

I think your analogy would be a better fit if it described someone going to a driving school and getting taught to ride a unicycle. Because it's hard to cause a car crash if you're riding a unicycle! But you also don't learn to drive a car if you only ever ride a unicycle.

comment What is the proper use of the abdominal muscle to reduce injury?
This belongs on fitness.SE instead of here. Properly bracing the abdominals for exercise is a broad topic that relates more to exercise technique than martial arts.

comment What is Qi power and has it been proven to exist scientifically?
I knew what you were referring to, which is why I describe it as an gross misapplication of the findings of physical science.

No, all the words/phrases I criticized were from your actual answer, not a comment or chat comment. Use control-F to find them.

-1 for handwaving, misuse of both the term "statistically", and egregious misapplication of findings in the field of quantum mechanics.

@TimothyAWiseman I find that the minimum information is either extremely extensive or just a link.
