Default another Matt Thornton video

http://video.google.com/videoplay?do...50760833041053

I still wonder whether there can be some benefit to doing more controlled sparring, like in randori where you are responding to new situations and attackers, but getting faster over time until you are able to respond with full speed and power. I just think there's more ways to get there than competition styles (and competition styles have changed techniques to make them less lethal, of course). Anyways, just some thoughts. Oh, and Matt Thornton is a total hottie.

Edited to add this second video: http://video.google.com/videoplay?do...22756738846126

Yael-
That is certainly part of a reasonable progression.

Agreed on the training.

On Thorton being a "hottie"... I don't think I'm confident enough to agree, but I will say he is a stud.

Comming from a combat training background (by combat I mean where complete incapacitation is the end point) if you train at 75% you will output 75%. At least every once in a while you have to go to 100% otherwise you will never know what that is! Having the capacity to do this without causing considerable bodily injury requires an awareness that takes a lifetime to develop. Otherwise you just need to have balls, luck and a stronger will to survive...

Realistically in order to be able to dish out the beatings you have to know what it means to get beat.
