Re: Techniques are dead: Living movement vs dead technique
Just a thought here.....the practice process that starts with learning basics and moves forward to higher levels of skill resulting in refined basics and then more advanced techniques....a shared process that exchanges roles back and forth is an end in itself. A structured process that has it's own rewards that results in a social community setting that is fun and enjoyable for most.
Moving past this to an unstructured practice with ebb and flow dependent what is happening at the moment may require moving outside of the structured community setting, may require that everyone help teach each other without anyone as Sensei, and may require exploration in totally different venues..
Just a thought
