comment Wrist strength for sticks
@mart My entire point is that tailoring a strength program to a specific task ("wrist action") is folly for anyone who doesn't already have a substantial amount of non-task-specific-strength. This is a well-understood aspect of sports training: for novices (who the OP almost certainly is) general strength training improves strength for all tasks better than task-specific strength training even for the specific task.

The history of fake wrestling is intertwined with real wrestling and challenge matches, both of which are quite a part of martial arts.

comment How should a college club train for MMA?
@slugster I don't agree with that at all; many college MA or MMA or karate or judo or BJJ clubs end up being quite solid for those students who come in regularly.

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.

@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.
