comment Aikido and Bulking Up?
@Drakes: Any dojo who state that you should "power through the injuries" is not a place anyone should train. If everyone is injured, including the instructors, then that dojo is worthless. It has failed in the most basic of self defence: that of safe guarding its members. By "get out", I meant get out and never come back. Answer edited.

comment How effective is Tai Chi as a martial art in street fights?
What are the definition of a "street fight", "real fights" or "experienced fighters"? Are we talking about a drunk idiot who can barely stand and calls you pint ugly or a hundred hard core daesh fighters armed wtih RPGs, AK47s, and grenades trying to slaughter everyone they see in your street?

comment What disciplines/grades to list for social network martial arts site?
I think this question is asking "is there a taxonomy of martial arts" which does not sound like a bad question in and of itself. However, I appear to be in the minority here.

Wikipedia and International Glima Association links.

comment Norwegian/Germanic martial arts forms
I voted to close because the question is so very board: Wikipedia has an article on the German school of fencying, on Glima, and on Viking arms and amours. All articles contain references. This is but prior research which was not done.

comment 5-year old struggles with his new Tae Kwon Do classes
@MikeP: Were you to paraphrase what I wrote in your answer, I'd be happy to delete this one as really it is a long addendum to yours. I would not presume to add it to your answer since you might not agree with it.

comment Can I learn martial arts at a Shaolin temple by helping out at the temple?
While there is a good answer in there, the current tone is a little aggressive for my liking. Could you perhaps rephrase a little? Again, a reference would be nice but if it's your Sifu's opinion it might be hard to get an external source.

-1. Anecdotal evidence is worth nothing.

comment Mouth guards for boxing with braces
Why do you not ask your dentist? Surely, they will have more idea about that than a bunch of strangers on the Internet regardless of the amount of fake internet points they have?
