comment Are there musical instruments which, when practiced, noticeably increase martial arts skills and performance?
I'll add that the specific choices does matter in one regard: enjoy what you do, even when it is tough. If you carry resentment into it , you won't receive as much as it can offer.

Highlight the main point. I missed that the first time I read it and it came across as "human brain is not good at multitasking so don't even try using two hands"

comment What methods are effective for increasing co-ordination on dual handed techniques?
This is generally a good advice for two or more body parts: move them all together at once. On the other hand, my experience with that specific double-weaving pattern is that the pattern was too difficult to learn straight-up this way. YMMV.

Hey now, I don't poke holes in your naive-questioning-tactic :-) Now here's something I have not really explored: what about ankles? It has less freedom-of-movement than the femoral socket, but more than knees.

What about twisting the knee because your hips don't rotate sufficiently?

+1 Scratch stick -- sounds like a great idea.

comment What's the difference between Internal and External martial arts?
@WilliamMioch I've practiced xingyiquan and baguazhang both slow and fast. Slow practice is not exclusive to taijiquan, or even Chinese arts. So slow vs. fast is not a good description for internal vs. external.

comment What's the difference between Internal and External martial arts?
I didn't downvote. However, there are "external" arts that "focus on using the leverage of the relaxed body to control an opponent." In other words, this does not describe the difference very well.

comment Drills for reducing your natural “flinch” reaction
@SimonPeterChappell Flinches come from fear. Fear is fundamentally the instinct to avoid danger and we're biologically wired to avoid pain. Bad technique, lack of strength, and surprise all fall out from avoidance.

The insight is sound though I'm not so sure about the drill. +1 anyways.
