comment What is the most effective martial art in a street fight - no weapons?
@Dungarth Sure. It's uncommon, though, and leaves the many benefits of organized competition. But I'm not sure what you have in mind.

comment Why do taekwondoists bounce so much? (And how do we help them stop?)
This round-table of muay Thai fighters discussing their views of TKD is somewhat relevant.

comment Training supplement to Muay Thai
I, too, have found that three times a week is the minimum for satisfactory athletic progress in a combat sport. My judo coach agrees, saying that 2 times a week merely maintains. One lesson a week is really, really, really not helpful to getting better at a physical skill. If you're not interested in improving your physical skill, that's no trouble, but for athletes looking to improve, 3x/week is absolutely a minimum and more work produces more results.

comment Drills for training agility - cross art
@JohnP That was from Kurz. I've seen it repeated elsewhere as 1.5xBW squat, but haven't looked at its origin. I think the point is that prior to that, strength work produces greater explosiveness (as well as other benefits) than specific training for explosiveness such as depth jumps. For general bounding and jumping I wouldn't apply that prereq.

@AkosCz Thanks! But to be clear, none of these are my blogs or mind maps; I just collected them here.

comment Should I wear bandages?
It's not enough to downvote, and of course technique is important, but my experience is that the heavy bag is precisely the slice of training where one should be practicing power punching.

@stslavik Your comments would do well as an answer. I don't see any particular need to split this question up.
