    Great. I love the videos and inspiration.
    Your material for a lot of people imo is cutting edge.
    Most have not integrated nearly to the degree you guys have. Some may have, but of those few with the diversity and of those most are mma templates with minimal street integration. Sf has a great system, from the various material, drills, integration, etc.

    I have a question on Flows. I always believed in flows. All the way back to Guro Dans material. And back to stick drills. Back to Yuri Nakamuras shooto flows. Essentially to me it was analogous to words when learning a language. Pieces of the drills come out in sparring.

    But the nay sayers and those who call them mindless drills, what is your response?
    Matt?
    Sean?
    Anyone else?

    @Kahunadog, my opinion is that the "mindlessness" is actually a positive feature, very much so. If you're in a situation, you don't have time to think - you react in whatever way you've been trained. Flows are great exactly >because< if you drill them properly, then you will have a hard-wired response in that situation, instead of hesitating. He who hesitates is lost.

    My 2 cents, anyway! :)

    Osss,

    David

    @David Lee said it VERY well. Flows are designed to teach you to fight instinctually. Of course the fight is NEVER going to go down exactly like a flow that we drill, but if are learning how to move, react, and FLOW; then when a "checkpoint" happens during a fight, the flow essentially takes over.

    I hope that makes sense. Essentially the flow is creating instinctual movement. It's the ONLY way I train my students because it works.
