comment What is Qi power and has it been proven to exist scientifically?
"[Masters who 'have chi power'] have plenty of students with cash in hand willing to pay them handsomely in order to learn" -- people pay all sorts of con artists for the privilege of being scammed.

comment What's the difference between Internal and External martial arts?
What is chi, if it causes physical effects? Shouldn't we have some sort of specific understanding of it, instead of just vaguenesses?

comment What aspects of health does form-based tai chi improve?
-1 Qi flow is an incoherent concept, not a medical term, state, or technique.

@TimothyAWiseman Because my hand bones are delicate flowers. Of course, what the hell do I know what I'd do if I were properly trained? I'm mostly basing it on recently watching several Bas Rutten clips where he talks about it being a good approach to ungloved fighting.

comment In MMA, should you try to block punches with your glove in the same way you could in Muay Thai?
Jack Slack, noted striking analyst, disagrees: Dipping is bending at the knees while maintaining the stance with the upper body. Weaving is bending at the waist.

comment Defending against an aggressive and heavier opponent
@JulianKról As for not liking the clinch...the only options here are: convince them to stop, knock them out, run, or clinch. I don't like the odds on going for the knockout. Running is kind of outside the scope of the question. Convincing them to stop by wearing them out or leg kicking them is viable, but involves a lot of risk while in the striking range.

It happens. The throw happens to work well with me; other throws work better for other people. But all judo throws are meant to work against bigger, stronger opponents if you get good at them.
