How do you guys train your sticks in your dojo? We don't much sombrada drill or anything like it any more. We mostly learn to swing for power, practice the major functional defenses in an alive environment, and then go straight to banging each other with semi-padded weapons.

How do you guys train?

I think you are pretty right-on. When I did any stick work, that's exactly how I approached it.

Yeah, like that. Plus some drills where everyone stands in a circle around one guy and attacks him one at a time from different angles.

Pretty much the same, or maybe skip the weapons padding if you have hand & head gear and can pair up a newbie with someone experienced.
