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 Does Krav Maga have any roots of Aikido?
-1: [..] Aikido are modern "made up" martial arts and have no basis in "tradition". This is utter rubbish. Aikido evolved from Daito ryu Aiki jujutsu practiced by the Takeda family of Kai Province (modern day Yamanashi Prefecture). It has many other influences due to Ueshiba learning various other martial arts during his life.

comment Is it true that most fights end on the ground? What is the evidence?
-1. See The Body in Motion: Its Evolution and Design by Theodore Dimon‌​. Humans have evolved to be upright bipedal. Normal humans have a centre of mass in the same place as the geometric centre (just below the navel) and therefore cannot be "top heavy".
