comment What are the long term consequences of practicing judo?
Morote-gari was not banned because of how it lands people. Other throws have been banned because of injury potential (e.g. kani basami, poor variations of uchimata) but morote-gari is not one of them, as it was banned as part of a blanket ban on leg grabs.

comment Which is the best way for learning Wing Chun?
You can't study an art if there's no school nearby. For your situation I would recommend boxing. Boxing is good stuff.

comment How to avoid recoiling when someone pushes you?
-1 This oversimplified "science" is really unhelpful. What damage is a push going to do? Why not improve on the mass part of the momentum equation? How harmful do you imagine moving towards a push is going to be--wouldn't that just mean taking a firm stance and taking the collision? Isn't that kind of common in martial art?

comment Western Boxing Styles and their Features
The Philly shell is a real thing, and I'm sure that different lineages have different practices, and I love this question, but I don't know anything about the different boxing "styles". I think that because boxing doesn't name or conceptualize their subvariations the same way that (for instance) karate does, it's less of a recognized thing.
