I have been training for the last 20+ years in a Okinawan derived style called Bushin Ryu.

In that time I've also dabbled in some other arts and had the good fortune to train under some excellent people.

comment Endurance problems while practicing martial art
There are not enough details here - what is the warm up? Is it mainly aerobic or anaerobic? What is your eating like before the the workout? Do you have any underlying medical problems? Please add more relevant details!

comment What are the differences between gel and foam gear?
I believe that foams (to a certain degree) rely upon the air trapped in the foam structure and this dissapates over time, whereas gels are just a dense viscous liquid.

comment how to overcome “freeze”?
+1 - the wrist grab can be beneficial, you know where their hand is and what it's doing. If this is done to me then it's about a 75%/25% split between me either locking them up in return or just utilising their wrist grab to position them for a specific technique. Very seldom would I actually just disengage and then do nothing.
