comment Finding out why people leave?
This has the same problem as the phone conversation: the recipient feels pressured and thus does not tell you anything negative. All you get is "It is me, not you" excuse.

comment How to fight and control equipped motorcycle driver
-1. This is prime example of why I want to burninate the self defence tag. It is a hypothetical situation. It covers so much ground that the only possible answer is "it depends". It has no relation to any martial art whatsoever.

I think it is fine as it stands but I am but one of many people on this site.

This might be closed as too broad although personally I think it is on the fine end of the boarder. I would hate to see this degenerate into a "we do this in $style" type of answers.

comment Is the following position realistic in any fight?
I would like a reference to the last statement that "Some aikido schools use a similar stance to invite certain types of attacks as a setup for a throw."

comment How to escape from a sankyo grip?
@TonyD: I think the self defence tag would make this question too broad. Should the self defense tag be burninated?

comment How to escape from a sankyo grip?
I have done this technique on people fully resisting and with close fists. It is not pretty but tenkai kote hineri does work just fine. You do need balance breaking. A lot of balance breaking.

If you say This is also too broad a question to realistically answer. then you should not answer the question but vote to close.

comment How to escape from a sankyo grip?
When we do tenkai toke hineri, uke's hand is rotated towards their arm pit with the elbow high. In that position, putting your forehead to the back of your hand would require some amazing flexibility. I'll give it a try next time I train! Thanks.

comment Where can I find statistics on attack modalities?
This "Data has been gathered from a Home Office study group formed to investigate violence within modern society." However, there is no link to said study, its findings, or anything but vague references to it. Furthermore "Therefore when defending yourself, Show No Mercy." shows a candid attitude to the law in the UK. Just because you are attacked, does not give you carte blanche.
