I'm currently studying Tomiki Aikido under Dr. Yoji Kondo, although I started in Yoshinkan aikido under Helton-Sensei. I'm also studying Taiji under D. Gilmer at StillwaterTaichi I'm informally studying jo and bokken.

comment What is the biggest force ever produced by an impact from the human body?
I'm not sure this fits within the guidelines in How to Ask; I don't know how you define "most powerful", or why "on tape"?

comment What is “seven star”?
Is there evidence that the name of the Taiji stance is connected to qigong? What is an ST9 point?

comment Slashing vs thrusting (bladed weapon vs pointed weapon)
I invite you to test your theory that a spear is ineffective against a lightly armored foe. "long stick" is ineffective as a slashing weapon too.

comment Are Peyton Quinn's books appropriate for a 19 year old or are they beyond my level?
I looked at the link you provided; I didn't see any novels. Books, but no novels.
