_Epictetus [first century AD] …how the semblances of things are to be combated_Whatever you would make habitual, practice it. And if you would not make a thing habitual, do not practice it, but habituate yourself to something else.
Whatever is drilled in training, comes out the other end in combat, no more no less. We can teach warriors to perform a specific action required for survival without conscious thought…but if we are not careful, we can also teach them to do the wrong thing.
but lets make sure we are in fact performing UECHI techniques and not Billy Joe Jim Bob's down the dusty highway.. That's where the confusion comes in..

Great Point Van Sensei.
Now a question , It seems, in this video that 'point of pressure' ,(initial contact) of the block / strike is at a greater range than what I am acustomed to.
Is this for safety ? Or a stylistic difference ?
