comment What martial arts cultural remedies are there to avoid and relieve soreness?
For those who know Eddie Izzard, he was doing an ice bath every day to avoid soreness. Also, there are plenty of medicinal data to support this. It is not anecdotal.

Aikido can be translated as the way of harmony therefore looking outside your school is bad and wrong and should never be done...

comment How long should it take to gain fighting proficiency in tai chi?
Unless you do sport competition, how are you going to rate with any form of statistical significance the criterion of "successfully apply techniques learned in class on an untrained but motivated opponent in a real situation"?

comment history of Jujitsu?
Just to clarify a point. Aikido, derived from Daito-ryu Aiki-jutsu, does not have roots in judo although Shodokan Aikido has some inspiration from judo training methods. Yet, Aikido comes from ju-jutsu roots thus not all ju-jutsu evolved into judo.
