Did she have a c-section or an episiotomy or any other surgery while pregnant? Where there any complications that might be relevant?

comment Does playing judo increase the likelyhood of one getting brain injuries?
Anyone knows how many people in Japan practised judo between 1983 till 2009? If we knew that, we could tell what the death percentage was. I suspect it will be very small indeed...

comment would this combo of MAs be well rounded or no?
As it currently stands, this question invites opinions and discussions. It cannot have a "best" answer as there are too many factors. What problem are you trying to solve here?

That first sentence nearly got you a down vote. The rest is good.

comment How to win a street fight without putting anyone's life in danger?
-1. Source: Micheal Yon's Danger close, chapter 1: One punch, one dead. Sure, this is just one such event and thus statistically insignificant. To get actual medical data, you should look at the Journal of Trauma: Out of 17,453 persons admitted, thirty-eight people (0.2%) died of their injuries. So, unlikely but still something you want to worry about.

comment How to win a street fight without putting anyone's life in danger?
We are a community run site. No question is closed without lots of people looking at it. What I think might not be reflected from everyone else. I just tend to leave comments so that OPs can improve their questions/answers.

comment How to win a street fight without putting anyone's life in danger?
BTW, you should not accept an answer in the first 24 hours or so as it encourages more people to formulate their own answers.

comment How to win a street fight without putting anyone's life in danger?
Your question is either unclear (my close vote) or way over broad with no possible "right" answer. In the former: Are you asking for legal advice? Are you asking for a range of possible responses to a threat? What kind of threat? There are thousands of way to answer your question. If the later, the only sensible answer is either do not be there or do not get caught.

comment What makes this seated Daito-ryu technique work?
Looking at the video in full (and not just the last technique), I am afraid that you are spot on: this is falling for sensei. My apologies for down voting. However, the last technique can be made to work by locking the arms and moving uke. The rest...

comment What is the best way to avoid armlocks?
Welcome to the site. I find your question interesting but way over board: is this in a civilian self defence, military self defence, MMA, or sparing context? I think the answers will vary a lot so could you narrow it down?

Is this their logo by any chance⸮

comment Should I start going to tournaments?
I voted to close as this is really a personal question that no one but yourself can answer: I cannot see there being a possible best answer that would be useful to a larger audience.

comment What are the main uses of aikido in self-defense?
I am afraid that your edit has not improved the answer as far as I am concerned: You do not define what you mean by "modern street self defence". You do not explain why traditional arts not a particularly efficient way too learn it. Aikido has plenty of strikes and techniques that can be initiated by tori. Oh, and you utterly ignore the fact that Aikido is used by Police forces around the world (Japan and the UK for sure) for self defense in the line of duty.

comment What are the main uses of aikido in self-defense?
I am not a lawyer, nor do I play one on TV. That said, using "preemptive strikes" may lead to you being arrested, charged with assault, and jailed. The law is not as clear cut as those "self defense experts" claim it is. If in doubt, please do and speak to a defense lawyer in your jurisdiction as the law is very different from place to place.

comment What are the main uses of aikido in self-defense?
-1. This does not answer the question. What is "modern street self defence" and why are traditional arts not a particularly efficient way too learn it? You know that Aikido is taught to various police forces around the world so how does that not fit "modern street self defence"? The second paragraph is your personal experience which is fine but is not evidence for anything with regards to Aikido.

comment Why is this samurai able to chop pellet gun bullets
There is nothing mystical in that video. It could easily be a simple case of clever editing: you are never shown how many times they tried. They could have tried as many times as needed until they got the needed result.
