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.
Me too. I call it "kihon at taichi speed" and find this practise useful as transition from kotai to jutai.

However; doing static techniques in a start/stop-way does very little for my ability do the same technique in flowing fashion.
Because doing techniques in a start/stop, step-by-step, is for learning the standarized "form". nothing more but nothing less.
