@DaveLiepmann do you think we could start one here as a community wiki?

comment An Ontology of Combat
I don't know if this answers the question, but it's certainly valuable information.

comment Why does Seido Karate only teach weapons training at black belt level?
I would recommend that you split your question in two parts. One, ask if there are systems that start with weapons. Then, create another question asking for styles similar to Seido karate.

comment Korean Equivalent of Shu-Ha-Ri?
This was a great edit, and very valuable information, although I believe it is still different. Let me explain: SHU is like "in this stance, he grabs this wrist with this hand, then you do that". HA is like "try this technique in various wrist grab positions, stances, etc". RI is like "Well, based on the way he grabbed my wrist, what I did was the proper response".

comment Korean Equivalent of Shu-Ha-Ri?
I believe that these are different concepts than the ones in the question, which are about levels of mastery of a skill.

comment Getting Punches in stomach as practice in kick boxing
The answer is, it depends. How are you taught to receive the strikes? (e.g. do you tighten your abs, do you step into them...)

comment What is the best way to work with a partner who misunderstands the drill?
I am OP. What is wrong? I believe that the unspoken argument is that adapting to a drill performed incorrectly still yields some benefits, as long as one understands that one is adapting and what one is responding to.

comment How do I improve my jumping technique for jumping maneuvers?
I'm with @DaveLiepmann. If this question were about martial benefits of jumping, I would think it belongs in here. As such, I think it's more of a fitness/athletics question at the moment.

I just meant - would doing it YOUR way also be a good thing for them to practice, even if it is the wrong way?

comment What differentiates the major styles of Tai Chi?
@chaosys - I'm very curious about that! Would you mind asking your shifu for more information on that style, like its origins, etc?

But the question then becomes, are you a good partner if you just do it their way?
