Re: Back to basics?

Watch the best athletes in just about any sport - they do the basics better than the rest. In some cases they do the basics so well that they can play around and make it look fancy, but it's their execution of the basics that got them there. One judo sensei said "I take my worst technique and practice until it is no longer my worst technique. Then I take my worst technique and practice until IT is no longer my worst technique..."
