Nescire autem quid ante quam natus sis acciderit, id est semper esse puerum. Quid enim est aetas hominis, nisi ea memoria rerum veterum cum superiorum aetate contexitur? -- Cicero, Marcus Tullius (106-43BC)

comment Are any Martial Arts Reality Shows/Documentaries useful to watch?
-1. This does not answer the question at all. First, it talks about Burn Notice which is fictional instead of a documentary that the question is asking about. Second, it reads like a endorsement of Miller's books which again have nothing to do with TV documentaries on martial arts.

comment How to improve speed, strength and condition for Kyokushin karate?
It is generally good practice to wait at least 24hours before accepting an answer. It encourages others to add their own.

comment Practical knife defense stance
Welcome to the site. While an interesting story (+1), it remains anecdotal (-1) and thus not evidence for general cases. Plus, it does not really answer the question... We are a question and answer site, not a forum. Could you edit your answer to focus on answering the question, maybe using your own personal experience?

comment Is it allowed in Muay Thai to throw a cartwheel kick with your standing leg when the other is held?
I think that doing Capoeira in a Muay Thai match would only result in your being disqualified or penalised...

A few problems: Allowed by whom? Legal under what law(s)? Reasonable in what context? ... What problem are you trying to solve?

comment Boxing vs karate for self-defense?
Good answer overall but I would emphasis that self defence is not limited to fighting. Although, that might be just me... ^_~

comment Boxing vs karate for self-defense?
-1. This read like almost (but not quiet) a Gorilla vs. Shark. Also, "real life situation" is so vague as to be meaningless. Self defence is not street fighting.

comment Holding Thai pads safely
Can you tell us which specific pads you use? What type of kick? Also, a photo of your hands while holding the pad might help.
