I am with you on that. I couldn't agree more.

Where I spent my first my seven years or so training, experimenting for yourself was a big part of learning and I will never forget that example.

I am always looking for that feeling of leading someone into a throw, setting up the inevtiable, bringing someone through even when they try to resist by what's really hard to put in to words, by not contesting with them at any point. No collision. etc. so I don't do any cranking.
