    Hell yeah! Hell no!

    Taking the techniques of a nonsparring school...and using them to spar somewhere else

    So lets say if I want to do an art...any art......but the school does not spar( or doesn't spar till I reach a higher level)...but I take the techniques they teach and spar with them and use them whilst training at my MMA gym.....do you think that would be alright? Or would this be disaster?

    I mean if they taught me the correct technique and the (unresisted) application but I used to spar at the gym.....would I be ok?

    As long as it's not breaking any rules, I don't see why it should be a problem. Whatever gives you the best chance of winning is what MMA is about, isn't it?

    Of cause if you havent sparred before you'd get owned...especialy if they thought you thought you knew what you were doing.
