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 How harmful are kicks to the private parts in krav maga?
If you have something to add, either edit the post or post your own answer. Remember, comments are going to be deleted. That came out harsher than I wanted...

comment Is “choondu marmam” in Kalari Payattu real?
This is currently terrible answer but could be a good one. You need to define and explain some of those terms, add references to where they come from, and focus on answering the question which is Is choondu marmam real? I do hope that you take the time to edit your answer.

Your latest edit changes the scope of the question. It would suggest asking a new question based on your last paragraph.

Any martial art really is about knocking the other guy out ... That's a really narrow minded view.

comment Endurance vs. Technique in Boxing
Welcome to the site. Have a look at good subjective bad subjectiv as there is a good question in there. I feel (but I might be wrong) that currently, the question reads too much as inviting discussion which SE does not do well at all.

comment what is the real history and purpose of silat in a fight?
There are some really interesting questions in there but as it stands, it is too broad and unclear. Could you break down each question into its own?

comment Is the highest judo belt really red?
This has several inaccuracies. Shodokan Aikido has red belts for 8th, 7th, and 6th kyu grades, the colour having nothing to do with investing a large portion of your life. Not all martial arts use Kano's grading system, Muay Thai and Capoeira to name but two.

Hi, and welcome to the site. You should back up what you say with some references as it would make your answer much more authoritative.

Shodokan Aikido has full on resistance training in training (randori-ho methodology) and full non-compliance competitions (aka shiai).

comment Correct position to leave an attacker after doing an strangulation to him
WOW, it is way too early to accept an answer! Leave it for at least 24 hours. That way, it leaves others the opportunity to comment, up or down vote, and leave their own answer.

comment What techniques would be effective in Zero Graivty?
@THelper: While I see where you are coming from, there are a lot of questions so far that fit into this pattern that can be answered via good/bad subjective. While I suspect that no one here has been using martial arts in space (if I am wrong, please answer this question!!!), I think it is an interesting Gedankenexperiment that can be answered.
