comment Between Kyokushin and Shotokan, which focuses more on hard sparring and less on kata?
Well, it reminds me of the scene at the end of V for Vendetta, really. "You've got nothing. Nothing but your bloody knives and your fancy karate gimmicks." The pyjama bit is something I hear a lot. It's the intentional misspelling that irked me. Dancing and martial arts have a lot in common.

"krotty dances" sounds snide to me.

comment Is “choondu marmam” in Kalari Payattu real?
This is a very valuable answer. I wonder if there are ways to vote up answers for some sort of "Hall of Fame"... ?

I would amend your last sentence and remove "with a high degree of certainty", but that may just be a pet peeve of mine. Skeptic, yes, but incredulous and annoying are things I don't like. I agree with basically everything else you wrote, but if you are sitting in your armchair waiting for this evidence, I guarantee you that it will not come to you :)
