comment What sort of questions drive karate forward?
Welcome to the site. This is a very open ended question, which means it will be next to impossible to come up with a definitive answer (and it will tend to draw opinion based answers rather than fact based ones). Can you rethink the question a bit to avoid these issues?

comment Tips for alleviating soreness?
What sort of soreness? Is it a lactic acid build up soreness? Or is is like you've lifted heaps of weights and given your muscles a working over type of soreness? One is a dull tired ache that affects entire sections of your body, the other is sharper and more localised (the two can be combined as well).

Guys, for extended chat don't forget you can take it to a chat room. Go hard but keep the sparring friendly and respectful :)

comment Joining a new dojo, would this be inappropriate?
Personally I would jump in and ask, explaining your background and future plans. "Rules" like that are usually firm guidelines that can be waived for the right people.

comment How to improve speed, strength and condition for Kyokushin karate?
I have fond memories of the candle drill... I knocked a lit candle across a crowded restaurant once when trying to impress the girlfriend at the time with that technique. Good times :)

comment Is 16 too late of an age to start hapkido or judo?
It's too late to start when you're dead, any time before that is good, obviously the sooner the better!

comment I want to learn Jiu Jitsu here in Japan, so do you guys know a school in Japan where they teach Jiu Jitsu, not BJJ?
Also make sure you follow the links given in the close reason of your original question - the Help center stuff is very easy to read and really quite helpful.

Please be aware that you can change your identity, but the question is still off topic. We really do want to help people, but there are guidelines for questions which are there for a reason. Before you ask your next question please take the time to read the Meta post How to ask questions on MartialArts.SE.
