@MarkC.Wallace Quite dangerous how?

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.

comment Drills for teaching range analysis
I downvoted because I've done this drill and found it unproductive. It seems to me to be more of a karate mind game than a useful exercise in learning distancing. It lacks footwork, live experimentation with the range, and agency on the part of the student. The last sentence also indicates a troubling lack of meaningful integration of the drill with sparring or more robust live drilling. It is similar to a useful drill, but the one-sidedness of this version, combined with a lack of movement on the part of the student, makes it unproductive.

comment Was Goju-ryu developed specifically for use by the Japanese navy?
@Sepala To be clear, my statement doesn't at all mean that Goju is ideally suited for close-quarters combat. (I'd trust judo or Greco-Roman wrestling more.) I'm just saying that goju could be better than a style that trains at long range exclusively.

You might get more comprehensive results in fitness.SE. Jumping is a fairly rich topic in sports science.

comment What are good martial arts for aging bodies?
You describe two styles, but I see virtually no description of why one would practice these instead of anything else.
