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)

-1. The urban legend of never washing your belt is utter rubbish.

comment Teaching Students to See the “Big Picture” of a Conflict
@stslavik: Not quiet. What I am driving at is that most people (including instructors) have no idea what conflict is, how it arises, and what it entrails. Therefore they spew and teach rubbish based on false assumptions.

comment Krav Maga, is it 100% legal for defense?
-1. First and second paragraphs are utterly inaccurate. Last paragraph shows an fundamental lack of knowledge of crime, witnesses, or any legal system.

comment What is a good push-up routine to build punch strength?
@TimothyAWiseman: Hum, that's not in kilo right? ^_~ What I meant was too heavy for your door frame. A good door frame should take a normal person. If you are very overweight or muscular, you might find the door frame starts to peel off the wall. If the wood is of poor quality, you will see the frame digging in. As with any equipment, do inspect it before and after use.

comment Drills for training agility - cross art
I would be very interested in this as well. However, advise reading like "block down the pub told me..." is worst than useless, in fact it is dangerous. So please provide references. Thank you.

@TimothyAWiseman: I do indeed have one of those. They are good provided that (i) your doors are actually well made, and (ii) you are not too heavy.

-1 for ignoring the law, this will lead you straight to jail. +1 for using minimal force. This borders on a good answer...

comment Does Krav Maga have any roots of Aikido?
Welcome to the site! Could you provide some names and a reference to which style of Aikido they were graded in? This would make it a great answer. As it stands, it reads like "guy down the pub told me that..." ^_~
