    I know what I've always done, especially learning a new technique, is start out going very slow with it, even when I've got the form down pat. Then slowly build up speed with it. I've also found this good as a general practice with kicks, sicne I find it forces you to improve your balance.

    when i decide i need to work out/practice at home, i like to take time to balance on one leg with my eyes closed.

    good balance is good.

    Also, doors that do not require a latch activation (e.g. a knob) and swing away from me, I will open by stepping near the base, causing them to quickly open.

    Also, ones that have that bar you push, I open with a knee strike.

    I elbow everything. Metal, wood, plastic. Poles, doors, tables, chairs, anything at a position that could represent an opponent's head. All day, everyday. If I could make a keyboard with large keys, I'd elbow them to type. And it translates well into my elbow form and ability to elbow at any position: from my back, in close distance, from an "entry" step, closing the distance, with clinch, etc. That's about as weird as it gets for me. I used Makiwara alot back in the day, but not for many years now.

    And that is how I am going to make my millions.

    I like water resistance training, ankle weights/wrist weights, hammering tires with sledges, that iranian swinging concrete bat thing that Teh El Macho posted not too long ago. Regularly wrestling my neices and nephews.

    I'll buy one. Really. Don't pad the keys. Make them out of very hard material.

    I am serious.

    Really.

    I headbang. A lot. I find that it helps me not be as sore after training clinch stuff. I'm actually more sore from headbanging, usually.

    I also sometimes flick light switches and open cupboards, curtains, etc. with my feet. Active flexibility ftw!

    I do uchikomi's in my backyard with a bungee cord tied around a tree. It's good resistance and you can really vary the intensity with different amounts of slack in the cord.
