I tend to concentrate on more practical stuff in the dojo. The flash stuff such as jumping and spinning kicks are great for body control etc. so we do those too.
I think that what is more imortant is making sure are students know which are which. I often demonstrate a technique/combination and say "this is great in sparring but not street practical" or "this combination is not very practical but it is a good exercise for...... balance/co-ordination/testing this stance etc...."
Not because I am a know-all, but because I have been lucky enough to train under people that have a lot of experienc in security work etc.

I truly believe that there is dojo art and street art. Many of the things we do is to help learn other things. We do not kick high, but we do in the dojo, practice high, apply low. So we do one thing in the dojo and another for the street. In practicing high, you stretch, and work on the kicks. Its much easier and quicker to go low, so our practice of kicks facilitates our street kicks. Same is true in other parts of training thats why we practice in clothes.
To say you practice like you play is true, but also there are things we do on the street, that you can't do in the dojo, rolling neck breaks, guillitine neck break rolls etc. So we walk through them so we have an uke the next day. Throat strikes and eye strikes are also hard to practice full force in the dojo. We do a technique that when attacked by a kick we barrell roll the persons standing leg, right up against the knee. For real, the attacker has his leg destroyed, but in the dojo we can only simulate this. Dojo art vs. street art.
