Re: Contact/Power - Examples

Put all the concentration you have into every moment of every movement of every technique you practice. Never do a technique "for the 100th/1000th" time but always for the first time. Your brain should be more tired than your body at the end of practice.

It may sound trite, but training better with a partner and in class is worth alot and quite possibly more than doing some exercises outside of class that may or may not be being done correctly and may or may not help.

If you do want to do something outside of class I would suggest visualization to work on and feel the memory of the different type of contact you mention.
