comment What are the differences between ITF and WTF Tae-Kwondo?
Personal experience could prove invaluable to the answer, but not the one provided here. Based on some of your comments, it seems you had some contact with the WTF at some point. Can you tell us if some of their techniques are different? If so, how? Are the katas the same? Do the competitive rules differ?

comment Martial Arts Technique Against Knife Attack
+1 for "Run". There are very few ways to get out of a knife fight without at least a few nasty cuts, and this is your absolute best bet...

comment How to properly initiate or use karate( any style that uses the beginning blocks since they're actually grappling techniques)grappling techniques
The grappling found in karate is mostly optimized for enabling other attacks, such as strikes to the bones and joints (to break or dislocate them), trapping and joint locks to control your opponent while still hitting him yourself, etc. If "karate is a grappling art", it is one that specializes in the trapping aspect of grappling as an enabling mechanism, but only superficially covers throws or ground fighting. Of course it's gonna lose in a judo competition against opponents that specialize in that sort of combat!
