FACE-OFF FRIDAY: When to Introduce "Alive" Training, or Resistance

IT'S FACE-OFF FRIDAY!

Today's topic is about "alive" training, or resistance.

By that, I mean a non-cooperative drill with another person - that is, the partner is not trying to allow a particular technique to work. In fact, they are actively trying to defeat it.

Some arts introduce resistance almost immediately in a new student's training.

Other arts introduce it gradually - over a period of months, or at a certain rank.

So I want to know how YOU do it - when, and how, you introduce alive training.

WHEN DO YOU INTRODUCE ALIVE TRAINING TO NEW STUDENTS?
