Nice sentiment. I agree. But it's really hard keeping oneself honest, isn't it. Man, trying to give an honest attack neither cooperating nor trying to beat down NAGE, a hard nut to crack!, in a manner of speaking...

Currently I spend most of my time in sport based drills. We are shown a technique, given a small amount of time to practice it with no resistance (and by no resistance I mean none). After 1 or 2 minutes of this we start to resist it. The resistance grows over a minute or two until we are now in a goal based drill. (My goal is to sweep to the mount, your goal is to pass my guard). I find this the most effective way for me to learn a new technique.
Yes! Excellent!
