Re: Lack of progress?

Generally, in my experience, I find it useful to go back and work on basics: tai sabaki, ashi sabaki and te sabaki. We all have plateaus and the harder we try the more we struggle. As Yoda says, try no-do. Sorry couldn't resist. When you focus on the elements of the technique and restrengthen your basis then the techniques we get back to normal. Overtime, we sometimes get sloppy.
