comment Training on hard ground
Please do not accept an answer for at least 24 hours. It leaves room for others to write their own answers which could be much better than mine!

Please do not accept any answer before at least 24 hours. This leaves others a reason to post their own answers, some of which might be way better than mine!

comment What is this name of this kind of joint lock
Aikido locks (or any other for that matter) work just fine on a static opponent. There is nothing clever in wrist locks, just simple body mechanics. The rest of the answer is fine.

comment How popular are the different styles of Aikido?
@MarkC.Wallace: A fair few "independent" dojo are still part of the BAB as they can get cheap insurance via them.

Did you read the wikipedia page on Krav Maga or the a history? This question shows no prior research whatsoever.

comment What martial arts resources discuss biomechanics of maximizing efficient force generation?
Were there such a seminal text on biomechanics within martial arts, then the best answer would be a link to $shop. However, if not, how would you judge two different books and a paper if they were three answers? Which one would be "best"? What if one focuses on Aikido but the other on Capoeira? Of course, you could do a synthesis of those and thus earn you the best answer ever but at this point you might as well publish that as a paper/book.

comment What martial arts resources discuss biomechanics of maximizing efficient force generation?
Welcome to the site. While I really like your question and want to know the answer(s) myself, I suspect it might not a good fit for here. Firstly, it cannot really be answered here as it would take way too long. Secondly, it asks for references which tend to be just a long list of things which in turn is frowned on. Lastly, it is all about physiognomy and not really related to martial arts at all: would a physiotherapist or medical sport doctor be a better source of knowledge there? However, I am not voting to close because I think it could be a good question if narrowed down a little.

This is very unfocused. Could you remove all the bits that do not answer the question?

comment Defence against Wing Chun
Welcome to the site. You really should take the tour of the site. We are a question and answer site, and thus your current answer does nothing to actually answer the question. In general, you will get down voted for this.

comment What is a grandmaster?
I always viewed the title of grandmaster as an ego boost which does not fit well at all within 守破離 (shuhari). But that is a little short for an answer... ;)
