comment Self-defense against a bigger charging opponent
There are so many things you can do/train for these situations. In my opinion the most important thing is: don't try to out-power the stronger opponent. Try to either evade, deflect or use his movement/power. Don't be discouraged by it either: putting much power or weight behind a technique often means it is a lot easier to be countered. I'm not pointing to any specific style to train for I believe many fight styles have there solution for these situations.

comment How can I speed up the recovery of a bruised leg?
I had a interesting conversation with my physiotherapist about this matter. Apparently it is proven icing or putting it in an iced bath is good, even after a longer while. It has the same effect as warmth does. The way this works according to her: the moment your body notices an area is too cold, it will send extra blood to that area so it can warm up. That extra blood will help with healing. So her final advice: ice it occasionally, try to keep it warm for the rest of the day. (this next to the right balance of resting and light movement)

comment What are good solutions for MMA training with half long hair?
@Dave Liepmann Did you train grappling with it? I can't imagine this would work well since it's not flexible or really fixed to the head..

@Vass Well to me the best wax has been Nu Nile (which is also a product of Murrays). It's strength is somewhere between Murrays and Murrays soft. It isn't really strong enough to keep the hair out of your eyes though though.

Yes, my physiotherapist said I could go for a knee band or a knee brace specially made for the jumpers knee. He didn't actuallly recommended one in specific. I can find both on the market but I wondered which suits best for fighting sports.

I made some small changes to it so that it looks a little bit the same after step 8, but thanks!

comment How can I try to engage students who don't really want to be there?
I think they will be motivated more if you make it fun. The ballet example: if I really had to pass, I would do just enough. Ofcourse, the onces that don't contribute shouldn't pass.
