Luciano, if traditions went around testing what they do, the tradition would either become a laughing stock, or it would have to change, in which case it wouldn’t be the tradition anymore. Surely we’ve established that here by now. The traditions aren’t interested in testing themselves. That’s why they’re traditions—they’re not progressive, they’re invested in trying to ‘preserve’ something that usually they don’t even understand.

Besides, to engage in dissimilar/aggressor training you have to be able to fight like your enemy might fight. Those who are locked into traditional practices are very unlikely to be able to do that, even if they wanted to. They have difficulty replicating violence even within similar practices, let alone dissimilar ones.

There’s no need to ask these guys to test what they’re doing against the likes of this man http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=SnxaZw2oSkU
when all you have to do is look at them to know they probably couldn’t make their practices work against this man
