Re: What is an "advanced technique?"

Two ways I think about advanced techniques:

1) Aspects of multiple basic techniques strung together in a way that requires attainment in those multiple basics to achieve the desired result and/or may also break some of the rules of the basics in a way that's still consistent with the overall practice

2) A basic technique performed with such ease and precision that it requires an "advanced" level of attainment
