comment What is the best way to work with a partner who misunderstands the drill?
I am OP. What is wrong? I believe that the unspoken argument is that adapting to a drill performed incorrectly still yields some benefits, as long as one understands that one is adapting and what one is responding to.

comment How do I improve my jumping technique for jumping maneuvers?
I'm with @DaveLiepmann. If this question were about martial benefits of jumping, I would think it belongs in here. As such, I think it's more of a fitness/athletics question at the moment.

I just meant - would doing it YOUR way also be a good thing for them to practice, even if it is the wrong way?

comment What differentiates the major styles of Tai Chi?
@chaosys - I'm very curious about that! Would you mind asking your shifu for more information on that style, like its origins, etc?

But the question then becomes, are you a good partner if you just do it their way?

Are we talking about sparring for competitive purposes (points awarded) or sparring as a drill for martial purposes?

comment What are the purposes of martial arts forms?
Thanks. That's pretty interesting information. May I recommend reorganizing it in the more classical format : thesis / antithesis / synthesis, instead of showing the antithesis first?
