I can only assume that the discussion is over my head...beyond my beginner's framework. Will keep in mind for the future.
Quote: I guess I don't see how the contextual information about a given technique can be addressed without explanation. How do you apply it? When do you apply it? How is it set up? What are likely defenses or responses from the opponent? Etc.
I consider these to be key questions in regards to making the move functional. Lack of context and detail can reduce the viability of the technique greatly, IMHO.
Since I teach Anatomy and Biomechanics and since my field is Physical Therapy, I incorporate a great deal of science into my teaching and training. My students appreciate being told what is actually going on.
