comment How do I increase hip flexibility for round kicks?
I can usually get a 180º rotation on my planted leg and get my hips turned. I can replicate the pain when doing the splits, my abductors are not tight or strained, but some muscle group or ligament on the outside of the hip is. I can't see to get it stretched out well to increase flexibility.

comment Why are firearms not part of the martial arts world?
@stslavik Yes some is a far better qualifier. When studying the history of some of the martial arts a lot were far younger then I had originally thought.

comment Which martial arts focus on self defense?
@Ginamin I think your pretty bang on. My issue that a lost of martial arts that people train in they rarely work with other people. So when they get hit for the first time in a real situation it phases them. Personally I trained in Karate when I was younger and now in West Coast MMA and BJJ and I feel far more confident when interacting with an opponent. Krav Maga is wicked and real world test, like MCMAP. But getting trained in them is probably outside most peoples ability.

comment Drills for reducing your natural “flinch” reaction
Great answer! Repeated exposure to the stimulus should desensitize the natural reaction.
