comment History of Shotokan's Influence on Taekwondo
This is a terrible answer. You do not provide any justification for your opinions, allude to unspecific sources of authority, and finish with some off topic material. However, there is the potential to turn this into a good answer! Provide evidence of the "revealing similarities in techniques and forms". Provide example of the "purposeful designed opposites in forms, and in philosophy". And, if some masters/grand master agree with you: name them.

comment What is the liability issuewith personal defense classes?
We are not a forum, we are a questions and answer site. There is a big difference. I edited your question to remove references to forums.

comment What is the liability issuewith personal defense classes?
I'm voting to close this question as off-topic because it is too localised to one specific unamed school.

comment Aikido in a street fight?
-1. sigh Shodokan Aikido is taught at the Osaka Police Academy, Yoshinkan Aikido via the Senshisei course is taught to the Tokyo riot police. Your personal experience of Aikido might be different but it certainly is not only for play fighting girlfriends and picking on little brothers... I personally know and trained with military personal, police officers, and prison wardens that all effectively used Aikido in the field as part of their jobs.

comment Aikido in a street fight?
We do not do debate as this is a question and answer site. Please find a forum such as aikiweb which will be happy to host debates. I said that your question reads like and if I have mistaken your question, maybe it could be better worded.

comment Aikido in a street fight?
-1, vote to close. First, anecdotal evidence is utterly worthless so three examples of bad Aikido videos (with no references) mean nothing whatsoever. Second, your question reads like you have made up your mind and are just fishing for justifications. Thirdly, what is a "street fight"? A car full of gang bangers shooting automatic weapons while driving? A drunk guy in a bar thinking you called his pint ugly?

comment What is the oldest martial art?
-1. A claim to be the oldest does not make it so. We need dates backed by evidence.

comment Why do lighter fighters have better cardio than heavier ones?
I'm voting to close this question as off-topic because it is a about biology (and possibly fitness) and has nothing whatsoever to do with martial arts.

comment What are the main uses of aikido in self-defense?
+1, a very good answer to a very bad question. However, there is no such thing as "Tomiki Aikido". Tomiki did create a system of teaching Aikido that involves an element of competition called Shodokan Aikido.

comment Close quarter's defense: when you stand face to face with an attacker
+1: deescalating, -1: preventive strike, +1: legal disclaimer! The last paragraph deserves more emphasis.

comment Self-defense with hemiphlegia
Just a grain of salt on tools: please check with your lawyer that said tools are legal to carry for self defence. Some might not be and might get you on the wrong side of law. I am not a lawyer nor do I play one on TV so talk to a real one.

comment Self-defense with hemiphlegia
-1. This does not answer the question at all! How can someone with limited use of one side of their body benefit from Chin na?

@WayneInYak: Thai boxing does have leg kicks and is "boxing"...
