comment Are Aikido movies on the internet helpful for beginners?
@smev Maybe it'll work, I've never tried that. I think more class time would be more productive. If you've been training less than a year, I wouldn't fret about not yet knowing the names instinctively.

What did you do, how does it look, how does it feel, when did it happen?

comment Are Aikido movies on the internet helpful for beginners?
@smev I've never heard of that approach being used in martial arts. Either you know the technique in your bones or you're faking it for the test. Go ahead and try it, but I wouldn't say it's very productive beyond the test.

comment What is the application for tai chi's single whip?
That looks more like a Diagonal Flying application to me, though I see how it could be applied to Single Whip. 1:20-1:30 of your video is definitely Single Whip, though.

comment How bad is kickboxing for your brain?
@Samuel Yes, but please keep the doses mentioned in mind. Every hard head impact is bad for your brain, but so is a night of binge drinking, and serious damage has been shown to start at six years of hard, competitive training.

Do you have any examples of a liver KO? I've never seen anyone actually lose consciousness, just collapse from pain.
