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 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.

comment Do ninja follow the bushido?
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.

comment is Jun Chong TKD a legitimate TKD dojo for self defense?
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.

Please take any health advise on the internet with a bucket load of salt. Go see a medical professional instead!

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.

comment Underwater Rear Naked Choke
Welcome to the site! Nice question indeed. I suppose that chocking someone is not something a referee is going to stand for if they see it. Is that right?

comment How should a BJJ practitioner run?
I am somewhat sceptical of your coach's claim and would like to know if they have a reference beyond personal experience... Still, good question!

comment What are the long term consequences of practicing judo?
-1 for anecdotally evidence as it is utterly irrelevant, +1 for going beyond it, and finally another +1 for sensible advice. ^_~

Hi and welcome top the site! I edited your question a little to remove some unnecessary bits and refocused it a little. I hope I left your original intent unchanged but if I failed please let me know.

This question appears to be off-topic because it shows no basic research of the topic: for example a Google search would have answered this question.
