comment What submissions are not allowed in competitive Judo?
Would +1 for the first 3 paragraphs, but mount does score points, starting at 10 seconds. The only locks that are allowed are those that attack the elbow. Shoulder locks are only allowed if they could reasonably be seen as (or cannot be distinguished from) elbow locks, such as in the case of some forms of ude garami.

comment What is Qi power and has it been proven to exist scientifically?
@slugster So, people need references when they disagree with you, but not when they agree with you? And what references, exactly, would be appropriate here? If you want references, post your own answer with them. Note that the burden of proof is on the person claiming that extremely unlikely magical powers exist, not on the person giving an Occam's razor style more plausible explanation.

comment What are the advantages of using a vertical fist for punching?
@曾気青昭雄 I'm not sure what you're advocating. Hitting someone in the head with a closed fist has been shown repeatedly to be a major risk for breaking the hand regardless of which knuckles are the striking surface. Boxer's fracture is in fact most commonly of the 4th or 5th knuckle, not the 2nd or 3rd.

comment What are the advantages of using a vertical fist for punching?
@曾気青昭雄 I don't believe the claim that one can land 4 strikes faster than one heavy strike, unless you're comparing a jab to a looping overhand right or similar. And I don't know what you mean about the forefinger/middle finger knuckles: that is correct per Isshinryu's vertical punch.

comment What exercises help with explosive hip rotation
My understanding is that hip power for punching comes from the glutes, which are worked plenty by squats and deadlifts. And the fact that they increased punching speed in 10 minutes shows that there was no increase in strength or power due to the workout, but rather that the machine merely provided a warm-up. The examples clearly show the students employing a hip turn in their second try, but that's a technique issue, not strength.
