    Whenever I'm working on technique, I always like to have my training partner put a little resistance in after the first few times that I execute the technique smoothly. I also like to do the same when I'm the one being practiced on because I think it offers me a chance to improve my defense instead of just considering what I could possibly do to counter the move being done on me. I notice that not everyone likes to have it this way and even some of my trainers tell me not to resist at all when doing technique. What do you guys think about this?

    i prefer it exactly as you've described. no resistance until i'm comfortable, then increasing resistance so i get a better feel for how things will actually go down.

    :werd: seconded, I see no problem with it if it's mutually agreed upon

    Exactly. After a few reps we usually offer slight resistance then talk about it some more. Then maybe apply it to an almost "Live" situation depending on time.

    I like drilling the technique first a ton of times with my partner resisting just enough not to flop around just to get it to be a second nature movement.

    If we're drilling a technique, like a mount escape, we'll typically do it with zero resistance the first 3 or 4 times, then increase it a bit for the next couple, then more the next couple, then the last 2 or 3 reps we go almost live.

    yeah when I say zero resistance I definitely don't mean for my partner to be a ragdoll :ugh: I hate that
