Re: Randori...we don't do enough of it

My understanding from friends that have been uchi deshi at San Leandro is that you also do periods of randori-centered practice?

Hendricks sensei has a pretty structured way of teaching randori (my experience from the randori-focused seminars with her in Sweden that Ive attended) that seems to have some similarities to George Ledyards methodology.

Edit:
So when you do randori after class, you probably have a pretty keen grasp on what you are trying to accomplish. My experience is that that is not at all that common.
