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.

comment Aikido in a street fight?
@Steve I disagree with your assertion about catching a hand during a fight. Most practitioners learn how to parry, and a catch starts with a parry. For someone trained a catch isn't that hard - especially as the punch usually has to travel further than the hand doing the trap/catch.

comment What is the best point-scoring technique?
The other part of your answer should be don't get hit. It's easier to win that way :)

comment Best moment to land a low kick?
The best moment to do the kick is the same as it ever was - when the target is open. The question is, are you using good form for the kick? Are you targeting the right spot(s)? Are you telegraphing the kick so your sparring partners know it is coming?

comment What are the main uses of aikido in self-defense?
Umm, anytime? Turn that question around and ask yourself: when wouldn't you use Aikido?
