comment What are the main uses of aikido in self-defense?
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 where to attack to render someone speechless
This is a job for law enforcement to solve, not a Martial Arts site. Your question is also not specifically about Martial Arts. If law enforcement is not an option due to it being a place of general unrest and/or militant action, then remove yourself from there, get out.

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.

comment Is this shaolin tutorial any good for self-study?
You need to find and attend a real school. You could use internet videos as reference material, but don't ever try to learn only from them. For example: that instructor has a lot of bouncing in his stretches. That might work for him, but bouncing a stretch can hurt beginners.

Hi Nic, welcome to the site.

If you accumulate 50 rep points then you'll be able to leave comments as well as answers.
