comment Muay Thai defensive techniques against grappling attacks
Your usage of the bold on sport seems to suggest a derision for the word. Am I right?

comment Muay Thai defensive techniques against grappling attacks
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.

@slugster: Your comment should be an answer, and it should be the accepted one at that. ^_~

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
Welcome to the site! Please do not get discouraged by my earlier down vote. I just want the answer to be a good. I suggest you looked at our tour to learn how this site works.

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.

I'm voting to close this question as off-topic because it is too localised to one specific unamed school.

comment Aikido in a street fight?
-1. sigh Shodokan Aikido is taught at the Osaka Police Academy, Yoshinkan Aikido via the Senshisei course is taught to the Tokyo riot police. Your personal experience of Aikido might be different but it certainly is not only for play fighting girlfriends and picking on little brothers... I personally know and trained with military personal, police officers, and prison wardens that all effectively used Aikido in the field as part of their jobs.

comment Aikido in a street fight?
We do not do debate as this is a question and answer site. Please find a forum such as aikiweb which will be happy to host debates. I said that your question reads like and if I have mistaken your question, maybe it could be better worded.

comment Aikido in a street fight?
-1, vote to close. First, anecdotal evidence is utterly worthless so three examples of bad Aikido videos (with no references) mean nothing whatsoever. Second, your question reads like you have made up your mind and are just fishing for justifications. Thirdly, what is a "street fight"? A car full of gang bangers shooting automatic weapons while driving? A drunk guy in a bar thinking you called his pint ugly?

-1. A claim to be the oldest does not make it so. We need dates backed by evidence.

comment Why do lighter fighters have better cardio than heavier ones?
I'm voting to close this question as off-topic because it is a about biology (and possibly fitness) and has nothing whatsoever to do with martial arts.
