comment Origin of the “pinyon” in Villari's Shaolin-Kempo-Karate system?
I usually see it anglicized as "pinan", which might help you in your search.

comment How long should it take to gain fighting proficiency in tai chi?
I couldn't keep a straight face either. If only training were so straightforward. :)

comment Is there a written, authoritative source I can reference for interpretations (Bunkai) of Karate (Shotokan) katas?
A summary of Abernethy's content would be swell. He's got good stuff, but a raw link just isn't helpful.

I appreciate this answer, but the blog post (which proposes an...interesting mathematical theory about quantifying the attainment of skill) seems to contradict your penultimate paragraph: "Any amount of tai chi will give you health benefits...[but] on the health path you are not learning a martial art any more, and so you should not expect to ever gain any meaningful self defence skills or the really deep physiological, structural and awareness changes that transform your body."
