At what point in your syllabus do students begin to learn the good stuff? By that I mean techniques that they can use in a real-life confrontation. In the past I've seen good techniques taught out of context (jun/oi juki taught as lunging forwards from a distance to strike an opponent at full extension) at an early stage, moving on to overly-complex combinations as the students progresses. Our current syllabus seeks to address this and has simple, low-skill, high-percentage, strikes from the outset. It doesn't go on to become complicated. We take the view that it's better to train a very few techniques often in order to 'own' them than to collect a larger number at the cost of effectiveness and efficiency.
