How do the previously listed four phases of information gathering (research, experimenting, drilling, and sparring) influence and inform eachother?:
Can sparring be used as a form of research and experimenting?
Drilling as a type of kinesthetic research?
How about drilling during sparring?
To me these tools are interconnected, forming a sum greater than the individual parts.
Who knows, you may start out a sparring session sparring, only to reel yourself back in and spend most of the alloted sparring time drilling something you’ve been neglecting.
