Re: Martial Ineffectiveness

agree Mark absolutely. However, for teaching fundamentals and developing the correct Kinesthetics... I have found that you have to slow folks down a bit. However, once you do this, yes then you have to speed it back up and develop the correct reflexes to do it at speed with aliveness.

I agree that we do get caught in the drift you speak of and begin to practice only at a very low level of pressure and non-cooperation and we stagnate.
