I just noticed the title of this thread and I don't think anyone made the basic point that you shouldn't be using any force - on anyone.
Hi Niall, that's interesting. Since I thought the question was about providing a proper attack for the smaller person to work with-- what is your take on how an attack should/could be provided without force?
I have a feeling that for training, all we need
from the attacker is the intent to produce force.. but in practice we seem to expect that the attacker will indeed follow through with the force, not just the intent. Makes things clearer.
