IMHO, how you train is how you fight. I would not want to habituate a pattern in that I don't really intend to use. I get the safety point of being able to deflect the energy so that we don't hurt anyone. Good idea for practice, if that's all you intend to do. Just nopt sure its a great way to train since its unrealistic and isn't fully committed to what you want to do in the end. But, let me give it some more thought.

Until again,

We do not rise to the level of our expectations, but fall to the level of our training. Train well. KWATZ!
