Yes, indeed. I recently had the pleasure of strength over improved technique. I'm big enough that I make a healthy speed bump and not too long ago I locked up on a guy. I was trying to make a point of where he broke connection. He didn't get that the only reason he had my arm was because I gave it to him. Anyways, he nearly broke my arm (I yelped and slapped which scared him I think) and still doesn't have any idea of how badly he was doing things. He even lectured me. My own damn fault as I know better but I really expected him to get what I was trying to tell him. It was sooooo obvious.
Still, it was worth it for the lesson. Next time I'll just counter it or go with it.
