I have seen none that would not work though I have seen many that are practised in a way that would make them fail. If you are in a club where you do not feel fear and where pressure is not injected on a regular basis then maybe you should be looking to change clubs. Another bad thing about too much compliance is that it teaches you to be beaten. You actually learn to let your opponent put a move or a technique on you, often placing yourself in the right position when he has got it wrong - in a sense you learn to lose which can’t be a good thing.
So if and when you beat him you know it is because the technique you used was a good one and not because your opponent let you win. You will also learn how to deal with the adrenal syndrome and a degree of pain - all necessary attributes in a real situation. Match fighting Match fighting is also an easy thing to prepare for - though it takes bottle in bags full to engage in match fighting - it is what most people do in the gym every training session, they spar. The only difference with true match fighting is that the sparring will not be at a designated range, rather it will be at any range that happens.
Whilst your opponent is shouting obscenities, you practice controlling the flow and the urge to panic. Basically you become, through constant exposure to aggression, desensitised to it (this is demonstrated on my DVD Three Second Fighter). Of course aggression is a two way street and what can be used against us can be used by us against our attackers. Aggression can be used as a tool to instil the same adrenal dump in our assailants as they instil in us. They too, ignorant to their own bodily reactions, will often mistake adrenalin for fear and bottle out.
