comment With modern mouthguards, would it be possible to mimic the knockout punch that Rex Layne received in 1951?
This question appears to be off-topic because it is about mouthguard technology

comment Good shoulder roll from a dive
If you are wanting to know how to do really effective dive rolls, check out the parkour tutorials on the subject. I've done lots of dive rolling in martial arts, but the parkour guys capture a lot of the subtle details that are needed for doing them in all kinds of terrains

I'd also add that making sure your feet are pointing the right way and the weigh is distributed the right way through the foot / feet

why worm guard? if you are having trouble with basic guards, this is probably something to leave till a bit later

comment BJJ: Best guard/strategy for stocky guys?
yes, if half guard I use lockdown a lot these days. Butterfly I haven't had a lot of success with. Though I often try and get my hooks in for sweeps. I'll tend to transition more into spider guard than butterfly.

comment What techniques would be effective in Zero Graivty?
not sure if the strikes would work well, mostly strikes work when you get body weight through them, punches and kicks would reduce to muscles generated force, which would hurt, sure, but not sure if would be too damaging. Rolling out of joint locks could be tricky, rolling requires pushing off something. I think spinning is going to be key in zero gravity, if you use someone to spin you one way, they spin the other way and if you hold a joint, then there's not a lot they can do to stop you or them spinning and their joint will take the force.

comment What information should I consider when choosing a martial art to study?
#4 is wrong I think, or at least its soft advice, and not necessarily true. I know this because I actually did this, I did an art because I liked the instructor, and he was great, but it wasn't really the martial art I wanted to do.

comment How effective are foul techniques as a side control escape?
you could blow in his ear, sing a nursery rhyme, pee your pants, and they all may make them dismount, but they still aren't escapes in the practical sense of a martial arts technique. pain compliance is useful and may or may not get the desired result.
