comment Is weight training useful in martial arts?
@Imbrondir Sprinters train with heavy weights to become stronger and more powerful. But this is not the same as speed. To improve speed, sprinters do plyometric excersises with light weights.

comment Is Static Stretching Before Practice Beneficial, Harmful, or Something In-between?
@Dave Looking at your definition I agree that normally dynamic stretches are not dangerous at all. But if you have sore/stiff muscles, didn't warm-up properly, or your activity involves movements that you don't do in daily life then dynamic stretching could cause you to overstretch (sadly, that last one I know from personal experience).

comment Is Static Stretching Before Practice Beneficial, Harmful, or Something In-between?
I don't think the research articles I've read included ballistic stretching (which sounds very dangerous from the description) I did a quick search to see if I can find the articles that mentioned the potential dangers of dynamic stretching (there were two articles if I remember correctly), but unfortunately I wasn't able to find them.

@Dave The problem with dynamic stretching is that it's more difficult to find your "limit", so overstretching is a bigger risk in dynamic stretching then in static stretching. For references, you can do a search on Google Scholar. You'll find plenty of papers on stretching research there.
