comment What are good martial arts for aging bodies?
Shouldn't this be a community-wiki question? It is basically a list question.

comment Weapons in taekwondo?
Why is TKD no the best way to learn weapons? And what is it about Escrima that makes it better?

comment Why do we train martial arts?
I agree with Sardathrion. Interesting question, but as it is too broad and basically a list question. Better suited to be discussed on chat

comment Self-defense against a bigger charging opponent
Welcome to Martial Arts! I think you forgot a few words in your last 2 sentences. What exactly is it you are trying to say there? Also, can you give examples of aikido moves (names) that may help in this case?

comment Continuously exhaling while attacking or blocking
I think the last part of your question ('and if there is something...') makes it rather broad (list question). What exactly are you looking for?

comment Self-defense against a bigger charging opponent
'...it comes up a lot in real life'?? Perhaps this applies to you and where you live, but personally I've never been in such a situation and neither have any of my family members, friends and collegues AFAIK.

comment Taekwondo and muscle imbalance
@SwatiPriyadarsini I think it's best to ask this as a new question. This way Steve can give a proper answer instead of typing all these comments.

This question appears to be off-topic because it is not about martial arts

comment Are women not suitable for tricking?
I suspect there are far more men practising Taekwondo then women. It's also possible that most women don't like to show off as much as men.

comment What is the cause for Northern and Southern Chinese kung fu differences?
Thank you for your answer, but you hardly address the question. Do you know how it comes that the Northern and Southern style are so different?

comment When training for more than 90 minutes is it advisable to take a break to recuperate?
@DaveLiepmann I am also skeptical about the claims made by kwaichi, but I guess it also depends on how you define "intensive". If kwaichi means near-maximum effort then it is a bit more plausible.

comment When training for more than 90 minutes is it advisable to take a break to recuperate?
I think you mean hyper natremia. Hyponatremia is associated with a large intake of water causing a low concentration of sodium in one's blood. Hypernatremia is a relatively high concentration of sodium due to lack of fluids (dehydration).

Welcome to Martial Arts! I'm no expert on kempo karate, but doesn't the order in which you learn differ for each dojo?

comment What exactly is Kalaripayattu?
You've provided some interesting information, but I disagree when you say that Kalaripayattu "is considered to be the deadliest martial art in the world". Considered by whom? Probably not by everyone. Also, there are many martial arts that do not focus on developing 6 pack abs.
