do you think it's more efficient for beginners to learn the basic motions of the waza, *then* concentrate on the fine details?
I think the most important thing for beginners is to first get a "feel" of what the kokyu forces are and what they can do. From there they should move forward with proper waza training AND Ki training which involves clear instruction and description of exactly what is going on physically. That's my opinion. YMMV.
