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 Practicing Mixed Martial Arts Versus Practicing One Specific Form of Martial Arts
I actually disagree with your conclusion, specifically the "a non-competitional self defense style". Competition does not necessarily mean sport nor does it mean diluted into a dance. Granted, sometimes it does ^_~

comment Best to learn for self defense: Wrestling, Boxing, or Jiu Jitsu
-1, this does not answer the question instead it sings (badly) the praise of Wing Chung.

comment What drill or form can I practice with a push broom while sweeping the sidewalk?
You could practice some sort of footwork while sweeping. Use the broom/leaves as resistance training. I could write a little more but it feels like it would be a very short answer...

comment With modern mouthguards, would it be possible to mimic the knockout punch that Rex Layne received in 1951?
This question appears to be off-topic because it is about what if. These questions generally cannot be answered objectively. Now, there might be ways to salvage this question if you were asking for either research or examples of it happening since then.

Welcome to the site. You have two questions here. It might be better to break your question two.

comment How to avoid aggravating a sprain while training in MMA?
Good point about the tag. The wiki is empty for it, so I asked a question on meta about what it should be used for. Good catch! Thank you!

comment Martial Arts Weapons for Home Defense?
@grovberg: Sure, a sword is safer than a gun but it is still not a safe thing to have. I made a note of guns since the OP mention them in his question and guns can be considered martial art weapons.

Indeed but your answer is much more complete than mine and does answer all the aspects of the question.

comment What are the functional differences between the five main T'ai Chi styles?
It depends on what you mean by "health"... Doing exercise safely will improve your health. However, Edzard Ernst has a post called Tai chi is based on strange concepts but is it helpful? that contains evidence medicine data on some tai chi health benefits claims. This is not an answer as it does not answer your question, just a comment on the "health" aspect.

Yeah, sorry. I tried to make this into a better question as it was pretty poor to start off with. Maybe a mistake...
