it definitely proves good technique. if you screw up, you know it immediately. last test that i took, i was going to do 4 boards with an elbow smash. however, my holders were shorter than me. so when i was practicing, i had a nice deep stance. when i actually went to do it, i hit too high, send once holder staggering backwards and had a huge bruise. 2nd try was the same thing. i thought i had broken my ulna. i finished the boards with a side kick and then went to go get x-rays!
