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 What is the most effective martial art in a street fight - no weapons?
While I do think some excellent answers can be generated by this question, it is entirely too broad and subject to opinion (e.g. it is impossible to provide definitive studies/facts/statistics/etc to validate the answer). This is exactly the sort of question that is to be avoided. If you want you can still edit this and ask for it to be considered for reopening, or you could ask a new but far more tightly constrained question.

+1 for mentioning what the other (non punching) hand is doing - it isn't just "getting ready" as explained in a lot of styles :)

@Vorac, that is exactly what the question is about. I've added a link to my answer which is worth a read and explains it well.

comment In kempo karate, what's the order of the forms and combination you learn?
Can you add some more context to your answer? At the moment it is just a bunch of numbers, maybe you could add names/descriptions, or links?

comment Counting Calories when Training for TKD Tournament
Hi and welcome to Martial Arts. In its current state your question is incredibly broad and hard to answer definitively and usefully, especially as the answer will vary for every person wanting to use the answer (everyone is different). Can you narrow down your question at all? Add some more information, like any particular program that you are on now, and anything you know to work for yourself?

All due respect, but I wouldn't call 6'2" and 180lb "heavy". You might lack toning/definition/strength, but it's not particularly heavy.
