I've been training Muay Thai since ever. Capoeira since a couple of years. Some Luta Livre (grappling) and took a look at a lot of different things but nothing really stuck.

I think what you're describing in the second comment is some kind of lock. It is sometimes used in a weak position in clinch because it immobilizes both opponents and will cause the referee to break up the clinch.

comment Short leg issue and wide-soled shoe
Not trying to imply you don't know about your own body, but a lot of diagnosed "short legs" turn out to be problems with hip-alignment (if that is a word) did you ever ask a chiropractor or an osteopathic practitioner about it?

comment Rule 1: Cardio. What exercises are worth doing to increase cardiovascular fitness?
i've noticed a backlash against running lately. I think while running might not be the ideal method to increase fitness for sparring it is still excellent for overall fitness and helps to prevent running out of fuel during a long training session.

comment How do I choose a boxing glove?
The weight of gloves in fight depends on the weight division. As a welter or junior welter (-67kg) in muay thai (in europe) i usually got 10oz.

comment What is the best martial art for reducing back pain and stress while increasing my fitness?
@MarkC.Wallace Added some more explanation about Luta Livre. If you wanna know more - just google it. There are lots of videos on youtube. Don't confuse it with Lucha Libre - those two have few in common ;-)
