comment What to do in full guard when you are able to grab your opponents knee as he stands up?
Um...what do you want to do? What kind of grab are we talking about? Gi, no-gi, self-defense, MMA? Did he stand up, or are we looking at when he just put a knee up? If he stood up, did he open your guard or are you hanging?

"Weight training makes you powerful but slow." This is not true for many forms of weight training.

comment Is 16 too 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.

comment Is 16 too late of an age to start hapkido or judo?
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...

comment What is Qi power and has it been proven to exist scientifically?
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".
