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.

comment Why are traditional karate gi's white?
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?

comment How to defend against dog attacks?
Please let me know if my edits to your question are fine. I tried to make the question a little more focused. Clearly, weapons are a trivial answer and thus I specifically removed those.

comment Which martial arts focus on self defense?
-1, there might be a good answer in there but currently it is an incoherent rant.
