    Practising with your adversaries?

    Post by Osaecomic on Fri Oct 02, 2015 11:33 pm

    If the guys you're competing with very evenly and facing quite often (maybe again next week) go to same classes as you do, do you choose to practise with them a lot or do you like to train a bit more with the less likely adversaries, maybe guys one weight class up or down?


    Does it make a difference if its technique or randori?

    I would practice with them. You see them and they see you at the same classes, so it's not like any secrets are involved.

    Even at elite level there are many training camps the day or two after the main competition. So even the worlds best get to train with each other on a regular basis (if they so desire).

    The best way to find an opponent's weakness, or evaluate the effect of your various attacks, is to randori with your adversaries. When you randori with partners who challenge you, it always makes you better. What could be more important than that?
