comment What is a good mat system for home MMA training?
also been at a couple of different dojos that use similar but not quite the same rubber interlocking mats, also quite good. But then maybe I'm not that fussy :)

slow training is good to a point, however, you really do need to train at speed because a LOT of technique breaks down under pressure.

for sure.....anything that's not a knife is only going to be a 'simulation' of real knife fighting, no matter how you train, it's not quite the real thing. Which is true of most all martial arts training.

yes, but you can't limit yourself just to chopping techniques to make it painful in training, as a real knife works in more ways than chops. Its not so much they give the illusion, the interesting thing about them is they demand more respect because there is greater consequence to being tagged by one.

not if it slides across major tendons. It has very little effect, you may not even notice in the middle of it all as well
