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 How to defend yourself when you are outclassed?
@km That's good to hear - it's not as bad as the second option. You should do some training yourself, then once you have some background you could ask questions on how to best handle specific situations or moves.

comment How can I become a good training partner
By request I've cleaned out some comments as the answer has been edited to remove the contested bullet point (which wasn't pivotal to the answer anyway).

comment How to avoid aggravating a sprain while training in MMA?
Your question is too broad and too medically focused in its current state. As mentioned here we give training advice, not medical advice. For example your question would be better if it asked how to avoid aggravating that specific injury while training in your specific art. Treatment and what-might-happen are both off topic.

comment What are good martial arts for aging bodies?
This is an excellent answer. The OP shouldn't need to switch arts, he simply needs to adapt what he already does - and this is what was traditionally done. The reality is that there is a high probability that he will never need a flying side kick in real life - so while it's good to know how to do one and be able to do it if you really need it, the better solution is for the OP to adapt and refine the other techniques he already knows to accommodate his changing physiology.
