Uninitiated persons seeing the free sparring between Mark and Simon may accuse them for lack of speed and force. What these uninformed persons do not realize is that here Mark and Simon purposely spar in relatively slow movement and in a gentle, relaxed manner.
Amongst other benefits, this enables their techniques to flow smoothly and see the mistakes they may have made. Indeed, this training is very beneficial to them. Just about half an hour later in an unconditioned free sparring session as shown in another video clip, both Mark and Simon can spar spontaneously with force and speed, and without the mistakes they make in this video clip.
