Re: bad technique vs. resistance
Solo training is a type of conditioning, a softening and toughening of the body that connects it in ways designed for martial arts.
Kata and drills is patterning of movement to burn in responses.
Free style is the use of both in a pressured environment.
Fighting is fighting, if you have not or or not do it, its best not pretend you know what you're talking about.
That was not a personal you...just a general comment.
Few people really understand what solo training for internal power is for and how it relates to aiki. Most martial artists Really do not belong in an informed discussion of : internal power, aiki, or fighting. On the other hand good or bad techinque is an open ended discussion that is all but meaningless by definition.
