Improving Martial Arts Technique.
It is true that practicing your Martial Arts basics over and over will help develop strong technique and good skill. But rehearsing isolated self defense techniques only takes you so far.
The reality is… your ability to combine them into functional combinations increases success in real-time applications.
It’s like working towards being able to spar in Boxing, and constantly practicing jabs on a heavy bag. Yes, it’s a solid technique to build on… but without practicing good footwork, combinations, or even timing and distancing drills you’ll gain very little towards being able to spar better.
