comment Why do martial artists “shout” in the execution of a technique?
True. I don't think that I was saying it couldn't be. More indicating that it's manner of expression was different.

comment What's the most effective way to discipline students (particularly juniors)?
Yes, yes, yes. The more active you keep youngsters, the more fun they have and the less they play up because they're bored. I used to help teach an under-11's class and also an 11-16 class, so I've also learned this from experience.

I can't contribute an answer, but I like the question. :-)

comment Drills for reducing your natural “flinch” reaction
The Duke says that bravery is being afraid and saddling up anyway. I'm sticking with a flinch being an automatic reaction to physical stimulus. These reactions can, with dedicated effort, be trained out or trained in, so that tends to discount the fear stimulus.

I just have to say that flinches are an automatic behaviour of the body's nervous system. They are absolutely not based on fear.

@Rob Z - And that's why the good Lord gave us mothers. :-)

@Rob Z - That's true. If the school requires a certain patch in a certain location, then they would be the best ones to advise on the appropriate manner of attaching it.
