I had a discussion with a friend the other day and it got me thinking. 1) Do you believe that schools should have an open mat sparring sessions? 2) If you are or where a school owner/instructor would you have or conduct open mat sparring sessions, where anyone off of the street or in your school could go and spar. (When I mean off of the street I mean from another school, or say people that use to train in the martial arts etc. etc. could come and spar to tune up their skills) 3) Do you as a school owner or instructor believes this practice would help or hinder your students or your school? Just wondering. I'm not talking about the instructor vetting people to come and spar their students per say to help raise the students skills up by sparring people they don't know. I mean just have people randomly show up at this time and put up or shut up so to speak.
