I just want to gather different opinions on flow drills. I've heard it mentioned that you just become really good at the drill or you don't really develop solid basics from doing this type of training. So what are the benefits of doing them ? Why should we do them at all ?
Below is a flow drill video from Koryu Uchinadi where they appear to be a core part of their training. They look crisp, fast and very impressive. They also seem to cover every aspect of combat with several drills covering; Ground Fighting, Kicks, Punches, Locks , Throws ect.
However, does this prove the point that you just become good at the drill ? Where should this type of training fit in ? Would love to hear people's view.
