comment What is a good push-up routine to build punch strength?
@stslavik Great suggestions, I normally try and make a 90º angle with my elbows which leaves me about a fist width above the ground, but I got a big chest, so that might not work for everyone.

comment What is a good defense against a rear naked choke?
Good answer. The only thing I would add is that try to protect your windpipe and at least one carotid artery. If you can keep pressure off say your left side it will by you valuable time without passing out. So when someone gets me in a RNC, I berry my chin into the elbow dropping it to my chest if possible and slightly lean it to a side. Depending how large there arms are even dropping the chin they might still get both carotid arteries. Shooting your hands up and in to protect the carotid arteries and create leverage while dropping the chin also helps.

comment What are the ankles good for, relative to stance work and mobility?
@stslavik I think "What are the ankles good for? What is their most efficient use?" Is part of the issue. What is efficient use? Pertaining to what? The title made the Q a little better but it still feels a little to broad, or ambiguous to answer well. I like that Trevoke narrowed it down in his example, but like you said in an earlier comment there are so many scenarios, forms and motions that the Ankle can be utilized in many ways. I'm interested to see if we can get this Q or type of Q to work well here.

comment What is a good mat system for home MMA training?
I tried some mats that looked like those, but they were more of weight mats by Golds Gym and it turned me off of them. They kept separating on me while doing flows. I will have to take a look at those again and ensure they are good for martial arts activities.
