@WayneInYak I totally missed 'boxing' in the title and tag. You're absolutely right. Whoops.

comment What's the difference between Internal and External martial arts?
And it's not using an "alternate paradigm" to say, ludicrously, "This force is not related to body mechanics, leverage, or muscular strength."

comment What's the difference between Internal and External martial arts?
I have no problem with alternate paradigms: "energy" is a word frequently used in discussions about interpersonal relationships or wrestling. Nobody has a problem with saying 'energy' as a descriptor in those contexts because use of the term doesn't snowball into claims about supernatural powers that defy belief and fall apart under scruinty.

comment What is Qi? What is (fa) jin ? Where can I learn them?
I voted to close this question because it's a duplicate, but it's also several questions mashed into one, making it too broad as well.

You don't see how saying "everything is qi" is vague?

comment What is Qi power and has it been proven to exist scientifically?
"[Masters who 'have chi power'] have plenty of students with cash in hand willing to pay them handsomely in order to learn" -- people pay all sorts of con artists for the privilege of being scammed.

What is chi, if it causes physical effects? Shouldn't we have some sort of specific understanding of it, instead of just vaguenesses?

comment Defending against an aggressive and heavier opponent
@TimothyAWiseman Because my hand bones are delicate flowers. Of course, what the hell do I know what I'd do if I were properly trained? I'm mostly basing it on recently watching several Bas Rutten clips where he talks about it being a good approach to ungloved fighting.

comment In MMA, should you try to block punches with your glove in the same way you could in Muay Thai?
Jack Slack, noted striking analyst, disagrees: Dipping is bending at the knees while maintaining the stance with the upper body. Weaving is bending at the waist.
