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 What are the long term consequences of practicing judo?
-1 for anecdotally evidence as it is utterly irrelevant, +1 for going beyond it, and finally another +1 for sensible advice. ^_~

Hi and welcome top the site! I edited your question a little to remove some unnecessary bits and refocused it a little. I hope I left your original intent unchanged but if I failed please let me know.

This question appears to be off-topic because it shows no basic research of the topic: for example a Google search would have answered this question.

comment Who is a person, Martial Art, who broke his hand when he tried to break the Tiles?
-1. "Using his mind he not only healed his hand [...]" This mystical mumbo-jumbo makes me sad... The rest of the answer might be accurate, I do not know.

comment Best martial art for someone with bad elbow?
As a side note, Tomiki really hated the fact that some people called his style by his name. He named the style shodokan.

I have refocused your question on the technical aspect of Bushin Ryu since local (where to train) questions are off topic.

comment Defence against Wing Chun
This question appears to be off-topic because it is about gorilla vs shark. If you have a specific question about a technique from Wing Chun that you have problems dealing with whatever martial arts you know, then that might be a good question.

Mark C. Wallace's answer does a good job of describing why a teacher is more important than a style.

comment How do you prepare for the stress of a real self-defense situation?
I live in Europe but I am familiar with the USA as well. Truth be told, your answer makes more sense if you look at unstable countries.

comment How do you prepare for the stress of a real self-defense situation?
-1. Sorry, your update forced this. Your anecdotal evidence is utterly irrelevant, worthless, and at best observation biased. Not because of what you say (although I believe your understanding of LEO procedure and the law to be naive) but because anecdotal evidence is not evidence. The sad thing is that there is a good answer in there...

I am not a lawyer nor do I play one on TV: Check with either your lawyer(s) or your friendly LEO before stating that "taking him out" is a legal thing to do. Everywhere I looked into it, it was not legal. 'nuff said.

+1. We do raise to the level of our training. If becoming a street thug is your goal, then by all means learn to street fight. If your goal is to survive combat, then by all means learn how combat works.
