My questions are: 1. Should you spend 100% of your group training time in partner drill? 2. Can you develop MA foundation and basic only through partner drill training? For example, I don't teach form, but I teach a lot of partner drills. When students train partner drills without partner, they have solo drills. When they link solo drills, they have forms that they can train at home when partners are not available. I don't even teach MA stances. Students can learn the correct MA stances through the partner drill training. IMO, this training method is more effective than the traditional MA training method. partner drills -> solo drills -> forms The advantage of this "partner drills base training method" is you understand exactly what you are doing when you train your solo form.
