comment What is the best way to improve my conditioning for martial arts
Work your abdominals. When you think you've worked them enough, do them some more.

comment What statistics are there or whether Qi is metaphysical or physcial
Are asking about what publicly accessible studies are there that try to define qi? At the moment your question is not substantially different from What is Qi power and has it been proven to exist scientifically?.

comment Do shin guards defeat the purpose of training?
If it doesn't really answer the question then it's probably best to leave it as a comment.

Define "dirty"... if I need to defend myself then I don't consider anything to be "dirty".

comment what kind of gym work out is necessary for a Tae kwon do learner?
@JohnP I'm cool with these types of questions provided they are reasonably specific, and we don't get a whole bunch of "What workout should I do for martial art X?" derivatives. I prefer to let the community reopen it if they see fit, and this one is almost there. I might start a question on Meta later today and then people can thrash it out a bit.

comment what kind of gym work out is necessary for a Tae kwon do learner?
@DaveLiepmann mods can migrate it, but normally we would ping the mods on the target site first and get them to check if it would be a good fit. Matt is a mod on fitness, so he can shortcut that process. But we don't want to migrate all fitness related questions, it's good to keep some of them here.

comment would this combo of MAs be well rounded or no?
I understand that you're keen to get this question reopened, but it really is way too broad in it's current form - in the space of four questions you're basically asking for a full dissertation on the strengths and weaknesses of Krav vs. other arts. Questions have to be specific and reasonably answerable, and there really should be one question, not several. Remember that this is a Q&A site, not a discussion forum, so try and tailor your questions that way.
