The problem is that things can get taught staticly. I know in Judo, a lot of schools teach throws only as they appear in the Kodokan.
That really limits what you can do.
And that's when I figured out that tears couldn't make somebody who was dead alive again. There's another thing to learn about tears, they can't make somebody who doesn't love you any more love you again. It's the same with prayers. I wonder how much of their lives people waste crying and praying to God. If you ask me, the devil makes more sense than God does. I can at least see why people would want him around. It's good to have somebody to blame for the bad stuff they do. Maybe God's there because people get scared of all the bad stuff they do. They figure that God and the Devil are always playing this game of tug-of-war game with them. And they never know which side they're gonna wind up on. I guess that tug-of-war idea explains how sometimes, even when people try to do something good, it still turns out bad.

I agree with this perspective ~ those drills are meant to teach concepts and not specific application. The reason there are so many different techniques using the same wrist lock is so you won't get locked into specific scenarios. Actual technique involves a lot more spontaneous pulling, pushing and strikes thrown in ~ you may be on the ground or you might be in a clinch or whatever ~ but the concept is the same. Fold the wrist, twist it back and he is going to either hurt or fall.

Exactly 9C. Concepts are constant, only the scenario will change.
