Re: Gripping.

I'm amused that many (not all) of the men are talking about developing stronger grips, while the women (more likely to be smaller handed) are talking about alternate paths.
I can't figure out, if my hand cannot get around to grip to begin with, why in the world a stronger grip would do a darn thing for me?
I also cannot figure out why one would want to develop it? It won't help with connection, with finding technique, or any of the other things I'm training on in the dojo.
