Re: bad technique vs. resistance

You seem to think that the women are weak etc.
No I can assure you it wasn't that type of chauvinist stuff
If I mentioned "lady-like" things, it was not to imply any derogatory statement about women on a dojo - I apologize if I gave that impression.

If I said something like that, was only to mean that I have seen also many ladies, clearly fragile and not endowed with any type of phisycal strength or determination, doing techniques on men who were clearly accommodating them to their utmost.

The unavoidable consequence is that they will never know such a technique won't work on a resisting adversary: it's not that they haven't enough brute force (which won't be needed), it's that without resistance they won't ever understand there are leverages points to exploit because they don't feel them.

So I wasn't meaning that physical strength is necessary - I was only thinking that if you have to train like this or like this then you better stay home
Don't you agree?
