Random Training Notes 5

Noted following a very fun and educational session with a phenomenally skilled wrestler, in which he handled me like a  kid and pointed out that a few of my favorite reversals only work against people who aren’t trying/able to dominate you first…thanks Nich!

Regular training can enable people to do all sorts of physically impressive things, but most of those things require specific conditions in order to work. The dojo is an optimal environment. Training partners can unconsciously be too cooperative.

Is it more valuable to be able to do impressive things that require optimal conditions, or to be able to do necessary things under non-optimal conditions?

Which one are you training for?
