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 How to safely harden the inner thigh
First, you are asking about medical advise -- see I'm worried about possible health effects[...] and Are there any long term negative health effect[...]. Second, the assertion that "[...] a doctor will not be able to tell about the mid-long term effects of training." is wrong. Yes, a doctor should be able to tell you of negative effects of injuries. You might have to find a doctor that specialise in sport and sport injuries for more up to date information but any medical doctor will be able to tell. They are certainly more qualified that random strangers on the Internet.

-1, are you seriously asking for medical advise from the Internet? +1, for your last question (3) which is interesting.

comment Yang tai chi breathing (when to inhale/exhale)
@Tominator: I would strongly suggest you asked the teacher for the why. Depending on how and what his answer is, it should give you an indication.

comment Can I be bulky and fast at the same time?
Vote to close: The general hypothesis of the question is provably false. The only way the question would be valid is asking how a bulky person be become fast and/or flexible. However, that is a different question -- which should be asked I hasten to add!

comment How did the belt system color develop?
The not washing your belt is an urban myth that even a slight knowledge of Japanese culture (or any other culture for that matter) can prove as utter rubbish. A variation (still utter rubbish) is the dying the belt with darker and darker colours.

White is the colour of death in Japan. I have never heard of it as a symbol of purity apart form Victorian England with respect to wedding dresses. Do you have references?
