comment What strength and conditioning exercises are used in tai chi?
@Ho-ShengHsiao Nowhere have I said I study tai chi. That doesn't discount the statements I'm quoting from people who study and teach it.

comment What are the applications and principles of this particular seven-star mantis stance?
@Ho-ShengHsiao No. Making up applications on whimsy is not how people who received actual transmission practice.

comment What are the applications and principles of this particular seven-star mantis stance?
-1 for trying to reverse engineer the form. That misguided practice is the source of a huge quantity of poor martial skills.

comment How long should it take to gain fighting proficiency in tai chi?
@DaveNewton He's making the point that taiji is a physical skill. Like any physical skill, it should be practiced in a manner as close as possible to its application.

@DaveNewton Well, I suggest taking that up with the tai chi coaches who use that analogy. The guy is a CMA lineage holder and multiple-time champion in competitions of the gentle art.

comment For a total beginner, is tai chi a good start?
People who have the ability to train more vigorously than forms-only tai chi should generally do so. People who cannot (such as the detrained elderly) get a lot more benefit out of low-grade exercise such as tai chi as it is generally practiced in the USA.

comment Dropping weight before a MMA fight
@SimonPeterChappell The issue is that you don't show up for a tournament most times. MMA bouts are generally 1-fight affairs, with a great deal of preparation going into them, and the results put in your permanent record. So being outweighed even by a few pounds is a bigger deal than in local judo competition.

comment How dangerous is it to choke someone unconscious or to be choked unconscious?
-1, the first paragraph is unsupported by anecdote or data. Cutting off cerebral blood flow via blood choke is exactly what millions of judo, BJJ, SAMBO, and submission grappling exponents practice extensively every day without the ill effects you claim.
