I think that everyone speaks from experience, so a Tomiki person may define randori as it has been used in this thread, while you and I may define it as we practice it: one on many.

Hmm, Brian, I understand what you are saying, but like Nottingham's cousin (from the Kevin Costner Robin Hood) who pondered, "But why a spoon, cousin?",
I'm left asking... "why have points?"

If learning really is the goal, learning will happen. Points only serve to enforce who won and who died.

It's a sad irony: In U's satori, he forgot every technique he ever knew; since then, generations of doka have spent their whole careers trying to remember.
