comment Is 16 to late of an age to start hapkido or judo?
@MontyWild Teenagers, particularly teenage males, are better suited than just about any other population to adapt and thrive in response to physical stress of this sort. When someone who is 40 with kyphosis and degenerated joints and so inflexible they can't touch their toes tries to just dive into judo or hard-sparring karate the answer is often injury, not adaptation.

I agree! Except about conditioning. Lots of people--most people--need remedial physical preparation before engaging in good hard training. Basic strength and mobility work can provide that. But that doesn't mean those people should wait, it means that martial arts schools should provide an on-ramp physical preparation program.

comment Muay Thai defensive techniques against grappling attacks
@SahanDeSilva I mean, BJJ generally spends 75 to 90% of training time on ground grappling, and muay Thai spends approximately 0 to 5%. So...

So qi is heat? Or is it getting speared in the neck? Or is it pushing? Or is it breaking bricks? I'm confused.

That's easy: I've never heard of any muay Thai training groundwork in any substantial fashion.

comment Muay Thai defensive techniques against grappling attacks
@SahanDeSilva "Grapple" could mean any one of at least a twenty very different attacks. Is the jiujitsiero going for a low single leg, or a jumping guard pull after establishing a collar-and-elbow clinch, or an Imanari roll into a heel hook, or an over-under clinch followed by uchimata? None of those are remotely similar, and the defenses vary greatly no matter what art you train. You need to be more specific than "grapple".

comment Best moment to land a low kick?
@Sardathrion It read to me that he was talking about disabling the leg in tournament (thus, the belt categories). In any case, having a numb leg for the duration of a fight is nowhere near a broken bone, dislocated joint, or being killed. You're being ridiculous. Don't downvote just because you don't like hard sparring.

comment Best moment to land a low kick?
I'm rather surprised that this question is getting downvotes. "When is a good time to land [specific technique]" is a great question. And the point of kicks is to inflict damage to the opponent. I'm confused as to how these are even at issue.
