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.

This is really broad. There are a lot of different passes and guard-openers, and they require different approaches.

comment Boxing - how to make a blunt “charging” of a heavier opponent, unaffordable for him?
@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?

That "paper" is the handwaviest piece of writing I have ever read.
