comment would this combo of MAs be well rounded or no?
Even when you turn the question around and ask What does Krav Maga lack that other arts have? it is still a poor question because there is no one definitive answer and it will attract plenty of opinion.

comment How to win a street fight without putting anyone's life in danger?
I disagree vehemently with this approach. As martial artists we do train to hit hard. There have also been numerous cases recently in New Zealand and Australia where people have died from a single hit - this has lead to the introduction of laws known as "king hit" laws which stiffen the penalties. To advise that this is "so unlikely to happen" and "is extremely unlikely" is misleading and downright dangerous.

comment Why do martial artists “shout” in the execution of a technique?
Welcome to the site Steve. This is a Q&A site rather than a discussion forum, and your answer currently doesn't really attempt to answer the question in any way, it is more of a comment. Can you take some time to turn it into an actual answer? Thanks!

comment Should I speed up my breathing or slow down my tai chi?
I'm not a Tai Chi practitioner, but I believe your breathing should speed up to match the movement as the movements can be done at different speeds and breathing is a critical component of it.

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).

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 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.
