Re: static vs. dynamic waza

I find that being able to do static techniques in a very slow, deliberate way without pauses or falling back to speeding trough difficult parts of the waza is an excellent tool to get solid, fluid techniques in ki nagare.

However; doing static techniques in a start/stop-way does very little for my ability do the same technique in flowing fashion (but is perhaps a necessary transitional phase that everybody goes through).
