comment What is a good defense against a rear naked choke?
I suppose that's possible too, but much less common. Figure 4 is also referred to as a body triangle.

comment how to perform a reverse punch?
It is quite odd, yes but I think it's worth looking into the tactical implications. Do we see the forward stepping reverse punch in something like the Sabaki Challenge? If not, that could indicate that you might only want to do it while stepping back.

comment Is weight training useful in martial arts?
Doing exercises with light weights is more likely to impact speed than doing it with heavy weights. Doing training with heavy weights will give you the strength foundation to build your speed, but doing it with light weights will just slow you down enough to reprogram your muscles to move at a slower speed. That's why shadowboxing should never be done with greater than 1lbs weights.

comment Is weight training useful in martial arts?
Jay Cutler's a better example than Arnold or Coleman. Both of those guys are also incredibly strong, Arnold was a powerlifting champ before he became a bodybuilder and Coleman can deadlift over 800lbs. Some body builders are just big, but others are both big and strong.

comment How to best maintain mount position
You'll only succeed if there's a skill discrepancy, and then only if they have poor shoulder mobility. If you've got that skill discrepancy, you're not going to have trouble maintaining mount. Baiting the americana is the easiest mount escape there is - everything else they have to work for, but if you go for the americana you're giving them the bridge.

comment Self defense with one hand tied behind back?
I'm struggling to think of a scenario in which you have one hand tied behind your back, rather than two. I'm also unclear about "losing" your hand - is that literally losing it (in which case you're bleeding out rapidly) or losing the use of it due to injury?

comment What is a good defense against a rear naked choke?
Slipping your hand inside his thigh is inviting trouble, unless he has really short legs or you have a thick torso. Unless those conditions are in place, you can expect to have him figure 4 you with your arm trapped.
