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 Are martial arts helpful in dealing with pain from a sedentary lifestyle?
@Soutrik I would consider you to be quite skinny :) Those were simply some common problems I threw out there for consideration. You really should see a specialist - it might be expensive but living a pain (and injury) free life can be worth the expense. It could even be a simple problem. If you seek treatment and feel comfortable talking about it then let us know how it goes.

comment How do I determine which pieces of wood I can safely attempt to break with my fist?
Mandatory philosophical answer: you would know if you were ready for breaking a broom handle, you wouldn't need to ask :)

@DaveLiepmann They weren't diagnoses they were suggestions, and I thought I made it clear he should consult a specialist (curiously a few answers fail to mention that). In my answer I drew upon my knowledge and experience and mentioned some areas for further research, much like you did in yours. I simply outlined some of the common ways his job could cause those injuries (based on personal experience), this is the same experience that enables me to answer with some authority on another medical related question.

comment What is the best way to determine board-breaking ability?
From a martial arts perspective this is an ok question, but from a physics perspective it is so fundamentally flawed that words fail me... unfortunately my physics side managed to dominate my MA side on this one.

comment Martial arts with a torn anterior cruciate ligament (ACL)?
@RobZ Thanks for the follow up and I hope you are making progress with healing it. Yours is an edge case (the footnote covers your case :), but I'll leave my answer as-is because it still applies to normal people and may be of help to someone else.Hope you're back to normal practice soon!

comment What material should be covered in a rape-defense course?
Sorry @Dave, but it's not a one-in-a-million shot. I've been there, I've been on the receiving end as a training partner, I've taught it - it works beautifully. Of course it shouldn't be the only thing they know and rely on, like any other technique it does have its chances at failure. Your challenge is to teach them simple effective techniques that they will hardly (if ever) practice between the occassional session with you.
