Re: training in the long haul

Yes - a test of range of motion. When the others in my dojo are doing their long static stretches as part of "warming up" I am at the back of the mat doing slow moving range of motion. There ARE still dojos, not just this one, that include holding static stretches of cold muscles in order to, according to their thinking, promote movement and flexibility - because it's "traditional".
