    You know it's a good technique when...

    We all talk about how it is important to work our stuff in a realistic manner, against a resisting partner/opponent.

    I feel there are a couple of different levels, even of "full" resistance.

    For example there is the spontanious situation, where your partner doesn't know what you're about to do and has to respond, react, and resist on the fly. This can be a great way test if a technique has a chance to work in a realistic situation.

    Then there is a the prearranged situation, where the guy knows exactly what you are about to do, and does everything in his power to resist specifically that. Assuming your partner isn't completely without skill, if you can still pull off a technique in this situation, either the technique is really good, you're really good, or both.

    The second one happened several times to me today at the dojo. I know the techniques work, because I know how they are supposed to work, tried to actively resist them with full knowledge of what was about to happen, and still couldn't do a damn thing about it. It was a great feeling.
