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 good solutions for MMA training with half long hair?
Welcome to the site. We are a Question and Answer site. Do take the tour to learn more. Your current answer does not actually answers the question at all. As such it will be down voted. It could be a comment at best. What do you do to keep your hair out of the way?

comment Best martial art for a big guy?
I voted to close as over broad because you never tell us what your friend's goals in learning (another) martial art are. Military self defence? LEO self defence? Competition? Fitness? Having fun? ... What are they looking for? Without that, I can justify any martial art whatsoever as being the "best". That does include fencing, bow shooting, and jousting!

comment What glasses can I wear for martial arts training?
-1. This looks and smells like spam and even if it were not, it is subject to link rot.

Your usage of the bold on sport seems to suggest a derision for the word. Am I right?

Do you know about clinch techniques? Not that I am not an expert in Muay Thai so the link might not be the best one around or it could be. I just don't know enough to tell.

comment What would be a good gym workout for a Muay Thai fighter?
+1. Nice question, if maybe a little over broad. I edited your question slightly to make it easier to read. Let me know if I have changed your meaning?

comment Best moment to land a low kick?
@DaveLiepmann: When I train with a partner, I expect them to have my safety in mind. I am not doing martial arts to be beaten to a pulp, have my broken bones, my joints dislocated, and incur the risk of being either maimed or killed. If someone turned up to my club with the attitude to hurt their fellow members, they will be told to either change it right now or get out immediately. Surely that's not hard to grok? "When is a good time to land [specific technique]" is a great question, we agree on that. But that is not what is being asked here.

comment Baguazhang in India?
The tour and the help centre are on the "help" menu at the top right of the page. On the on-topic page, the first questions that should not be asked on Martial Arts is recommendations for schools or teachers in area X (too localized). Sorry to hear about your network connectivity, that does suck.

comment Baguazhang in India?
I absolutely get it. However, this site rules are there for a reason. It is therefore not the best place to ask this question. You might have more luck in either rephrasing your question in more general terms ("How can I go finding a X dojo?" although that might be too broad) or looking elsewhere. Alternatively, learn how to use Google...

comment History of Shotokan's Influence on Taekwondo
This is a terrible answer. You do not provide any justification for your opinions, allude to unspecific sources of authority, and finish with some off topic material. However, there is the potential to turn this into a good answer! Provide evidence of the "revealing similarities in techniques and forms". Provide example of the "purposeful designed opposites in forms, and in philosophy". And, if some masters/grand master agree with you: name them.

We are not a forum, we are a questions and answer site. There is a big difference. I edited your question to remove references to forums.
