This is a term used by Matt Thornton from SBG amoung others. (for a more in depth explination from Mr. Thornton's SBGi UK/Denmark tour DVD click here. Please be aware that it contains language that may offend) It decribes a training ideal using resistive opponents to increase the effectiveness of techniques learnt. How do you make your training as "alive" as possible? How does this differ for those who teach self protection to MAists to those who teach non-MAists? Budo.
