After training today I was thinking on my training journey and those who train with me. One thing I think that is important to point out is that when you are training you need to take time and do it right! Meaning you need to learn the technique correctly and in-grain it. This is a continuing process in that you need to regularly check yourself when you are training and make sure that you are doing it right. Train, check, train, re-check and make sure that you are in-graining proper technique into your individual framework. If you cannot do the technique right then you may add muscle to make it work. Using muscle is fine but….. not at the expense of your technique. So when doing a drill if you cannot go slow then move to faster speed and you find yourself resorting to utilizing too much muscle instead of your bodies natural framework then you need to go back to the basic technique and train it more and then slowly build up your speed. The best martial practitioners that I personally know typically have flawless technique in their training. That does not mean that they are always flawless just that when they do some thing that does not feel right for their body framework then readjust and find the right angle, etc. to make it work without bringing too much muscle to bear. When training you should place yourself into situations where technique will be essential. I cannot tell you how many times I have trained at less than optimal physical conditions. Whether it was weather related or that I was feeling ill, injured, etc. Each time when training like this it was important that my technique be really sharp to make things work in their easiest manner. If I found myself using too much muscle I would go back and rework the angle, frame, etc. so that I could then do the technique effortlessly. Taking the time to do it right has paid off for me in a moment of violence. (work related) If you train correctly you will find that over time your technique will hopefully be able to withstand that day when you are ill, injured, etc. and still come through for you if you need it in a moment of violence! Take your time and do it right!
