comment Muay Thai defensive techniques against grappling attacks
@SahanDeSilva I mean, BJJ generally spends 75 to 90% of training time on ground grappling, and muay Thai spends approximately 0 to 5%. So...

comment What is Qi power and has it been proven to exist scientifically?
So qi is heat? Or is it getting speared in the neck? Or is it pushing? Or is it breaking bricks? I'm confused.

That's easy: I've never heard of any muay Thai training groundwork in any substantial fashion.

comment Muay Thai defensive techniques against grappling attacks
@SahanDeSilva "Grapple" could mean any one of at least a twenty very different attacks. Is the jiujitsiero going for a low single leg, or a jumping guard pull after establishing a collar-and-elbow clinch, or an Imanari roll into a heel hook, or an over-under clinch followed by uchimata? None of those are remotely similar, and the defenses vary greatly no matter what art you train. You need to be more specific than "grapple".

comment Best moment to land a low kick?
@Sardathrion It read to me that he was talking about disabling the leg in tournament (thus, the belt categories). In any case, having a numb leg for the duration of a fight is nowhere near a broken bone, dislocated joint, or being killed. You're being ridiculous. Don't downvote just because you don't like hard sparring.

comment Best moment to land a low kick?
I'm rather surprised that this question is getting downvotes. "When is a good time to land [specific technique]" is a great question. And the point of kicks is to inflict damage to the opponent. I'm confused as to how these are even at issue.

comment Do pins in judo have to be standard pins?
Aha! That makes a lot of sense. Don't stress the exactness of a pin, just hold that squirming jerk down. :)

comment Are there any effective Kung Fu fighters in MMA?
@ElMynx Kennedy & Guo describe the Chinese Army coming to a similar conclusion in Chinese Martial Arts Training Manuals. Boxing doesn't have all the answers, but the basics of boxing and wrestling have proven themselves useful to all stylists.

comment Maintaining Guard- Breaking Posture and switching from closed to butterly/open guard effectively?
This is really broad. There are a lot of different passes and guard-openers, and they require different approaches.

@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.
