Both classes I attended this week have focused on movement, generating power, and efficiency. We did not even work on a specific technique last night.
This type of detailed study of the fundamentals is very interesting and fun. It's also very clear how we need to apply the movements we practiced to techniques.
I'm forulating some thoughts on the differences between how I trained before and now, but I can't really speak with any authority on the new training methods, so I'm sure to get the comparison horribly wrong.
