I vaguely recall my previous dojo consciously avoiding randori practice. It was something about us being here to train, or maybe preserving the spontaneous respond-as-it-comes nature of it, i.e, it's not randori if you're scripting your way through it.
Anyone know the reasons why one might want to NOT have randori in non-testing situations?
Mebbe my memory is just flawed, 'cuz my dojo over here do it on a weekly basis (that's all of out training sessions; we're a small bunch) to avoid anyone hurting themselves when it comes down to it.
