comment Should I train differently to spar guys who are bigger than me?
@Jason In many TKD competitions, they barely allow punching. I'm pretty sure that elbows, knees, grabbing, throws, and sweeps are all verboten.

comment Should I avoid open-handed blocks in sparring?
Clarification: is this about open-handed blocks or open-handed techniques? The latter includes a whole host of unrelated stuff like palm strikes, eye pokes, and grabbing, whereas the former is just about parries and blocks. Very different questions IMO.

comment How do I improve my attack speed?
I think we're using different definitions of "power". When I say "power" I mean "strength applied rapidly", and training power means increasing the speed at which you can move. I think that when you say "power" you mean "hitting hard" or "imparting force to the target". Is my understanding accurate?

@JackBNimble Some forms of hadaka-jime (judo) and the guillotine (BJJ) can attack the trachea.

Just to be clear, you're saying that A) it takes 30 minutes to hang someone to death with a noose, B) it takes 7 minutes to choke someone to death, and C) you learned this in some sort of finance class or job?

@BerinLoritsch For hand speed, perhaps push presses and clap push-ups? Maybe ball slams too? I haven't tried these seriously.

+1 for clapping pushups and reaction training/body reading. Similar answer here.

Do you have any sources for these numbers? I don't necessarily disagree with any of them, I just wonder where you got them.
