We start off learning techniques in a step by step method with a training partner at very low resistance until the mechanics of the technique are understood and you’ve had the chance to practice it multiple times. Over time your partner can increase the resistance as you require by using more of their weight or using counters they have learnt that you then have to work through to further improve your understanding and effectiveness with the techniques.
The Beginner/Fundamental classes are best, the General classes are also suitable.
