I thought every dojo did this regularly. Comments?
This is not always the case. I train regularly at two dojos where the philospohy is different. One is more martial than the other and randori at yundansha levels can be bruising and at times bloody affairs. Not dangerously so, perhaps the occassional blood nose, split lip.

The other dojo is more "sedate" and I think its more to do with the instructors liability cover than anything else. Nonetheless, I continue to train at this dojo because it provides me with the opportunity for a different perspective and the focus on fundamentals.

In this way I get the best of both worlds.

Happy training
