Re: Jamming a technique

Ahmad,

Yes, that is what I am saying. You should not do that type of training 100% of the time but I would say at least 80% of the time you do taijitsu up until black belt and then cut it down to about 50%. It should be done with the attitude of strengthening your partner and yourself. There is generally no need to shut your partner down. If both of you are training with good intentions then you will eventually figure out how to do the technique with little effort.

Best,

Eric
