comment What are the ankles good for, relative to stance work and mobility?
@trevoke I think a question should have an answer that can be accepted that covers what you were seeking in the question and doesn't require an essay of many possibilities. If things / advice vary a lot from art to art then it may need narrowing.

the question seems way too broad to be able to answer. If your question was "whats the ankles role in a front kick" then maybe it would be easier. It also seems the question is biased in that you partly ask a question and then move into a discussion and answer already.

also been at a couple of different dojos that use similar but not quite the same rubber interlocking mats, also quite good. But then maybe I'm not that fussy :)

comment Do shock knives make a good 'training' alternative to real knives for knife fighting sparring?
slow training is good to a point, however, you really do need to train at speed because a LOT of technique breaks down under pressure.
