On topic: When I'm working on a new throw or technique that I don't know if I can pull off in randori, I'll ask my uke for progressively more resistance as I'm drilling. Obviously, as has been mentioned, randori is the best place for resistance.

Kayne - first two classes are free.

That's four classes a week.

If you join up the beginners course , you can come to all other classes as well.
I once studied the same style of JJJ (Danzan ryu) at 3 different schools. Two of them did randori and ground work, the third didn't. You would be amazed at the difference in skill level between those who trained with resistance and those who did not.. The funny thing is, other than the additional 10-15 minutes of class spent sparring, they had the EXACT SAME curricullum(sp?). The instructors learned from the same person. When I asked another instructor about this she noted that if the instructors came from a wrestling or judo background, they tended to do sparring/randori, if not then they didn't. Seeing the difference in quality among students convinced me of the merits of alive training.
Theres a some different approaches you can use.

4. Then theres Compound techniques that can be use with certain types of joint locks.
i.e. a Joint lock combine with a choke.

Are you the ONLY person in your dojo who has this concern? Is there something stopping you from getting together with classmates to practice this stuff outside of your normal training times?
I'm curious, how exactly do you practice technique in class?
My JJJ is one of the only schools I have seen that trains with resistance. I started training BJJ to get more grounwork in and fell in love.
I teach JJJ and train BJJ. I could not imagine leaving either one. They are both just Jiu-jitsu to me.
