comment MMA/UFC statistical analysis
I have a PDF of a paper by Daniele Bollelli, M.A. in the Journal of Asian Martial Arts, Volume 12, Number 3 from 2003, entitled Mixed Martial Arts: A Technical Analysis of the Ultimate Fighting Championship in its Formative Years. That's a good start.

@Sardathrion What's the more or less?

comment Have you seen a fight between *top* Judo and Aikido practitioners?
@Sardathrion I consider the exact opposite to be aikidoka testing their art in MMA competition or sparring, or something akin to it. Is that what you mean?

@SeanDuggan Honestly I'm not sure where to start with adding links.

comment Is there a reason that the red part of the belt is on the left side?
On second read I'm confused. I don't have a red tip on my BJJ belt; I have a black tip, and I wear it on the right. I stand by my earlier comment but that's a bit weird.

comment Arm bar crushes the groin
@TimothyAWiseman They're against the rules in judo and IBJJF BJJ. NAGA apparently allows it but they're kind of the Wild West. My point with 4 is to short-circuit potential white belt complaints about elbows in the groin. I try to avoid ball crushage but A) there's a bit that just happens and B) not all pain due to inexact armbars is actually the testicles, but just the fact that it's an elbow and elbows are uncomfortable just about anywhere they're jamming into you.

@TopinFrassi I believe you. But the point is to develop the ability. Toughness is both a mental skill and a physical comfort with the uncomfortable position.

comment kicked in the sternum - tips on healing, time frame? any lingering danger?
@Sardathrion You're being uncharitable. Training produces all sorts of weird injuries that are new to people but that don't necessitate a doctor's visit—which, let's remember, costs time, money, and emotional energy. Asking one's peers (who are more experienced in these cultural practices) what to do about a small potentially-nothing, potentially-serious injury is the most normal response. If I went to a doc for every injury like this I would never get any work done and my doc would brand me a paranoid hypochondriac.
