comment Best karate book
Voted to close as being opinion based. Could also be closed as too broad.

comment What is the biggest force ever produced by an impact from the human body?
@Sardathrion - Not at all. 16 more upvotes and a couple down on the OP and I get the Reversal badge. Shiny. :)

comment How do boxers survive punches to the head?
@Bankuei - Excellent point. Case in point, the efforts in hockey and football to mitigate head contact, and the recent class action lawsuit around head injuries in football and concussions. Autopsies of many athletes who have multiple head impacts show CTE in the brain (Chronic Traumatic Encephalopathy). grantland.com/features/…

comment What is the biggest force ever produced by an impact from the human body?
Because Ivan Drago is a fictional character in a movie, and you have no clue whether the numbers on the puncho-meter-a-tron are actual or movie magic. And, given that a fight science segment on martial arts kicks only produced one kick that outperformed the punch, I would very much doubt the movie figures. youtube.com/watch?v=lcAfClb-f4g

comment To punch with keys or without?
This. I worked in an ER, and I've seen a few injuries where the webbing between the fingers was shredded, keys embedded in palms, etc. Also, in many countries assault is merely the threat, battery is the act of striking. It can be compounded as you say, by wielding anything that appears to be a weapon.

comment Is the highest judo belt really red?
Also, many (if not most) karate/tkd styled systems only have 9 dan grades, with the 9th dan being reserved for head of the art. 10th dan (if used) is more ceremonial than achievement based.

comment is Jun Chong TKD a legitimate TKD dojo for self defense?
@SteveWeigand - Long term contracts (12-24 months) are a common business tool, nothing more. It allows a business owner to plan and project income over an extended time. Any good contract should have an escape clause, for many reasons other than "Yeah, I got bored".

comment is Jun Chong TKD a legitimate TKD dojo for self defense?
-1. This is highly subjective. There are many TKD schools that do not emphasize competition, and are heavier on the defense/application aspects.

comment Straight punch to the head and knockout
Not sure where you worked, but a guy that trains at our studio is a corrections officer, and they are absolutely not allowed to do anything like that except as a complete last resort.

comment What techniques would be effective in Zero Graivty?
I don't know what kind of water polo y'all play, but it's not according to any rules I know. I've played, and while I've been grabbed (And in some pretty rough games) I've never been clinched with body shots.

Also voted to close. It's basically guesswork.

If you grab an ear and "wrench around" you are just as likely to move and drift as your opponent unless you are latched on to something else.

comment Proper form for tae kwon do spinning side kicks
Also, pay attention to what your hands/arms are doing. The more you let them get away/flap in the breeze, the more you disperse your center of gravity and axis of rotation. Both of which will end up throwing your spins off.
