One of the common sayings in the HEMA community and in other martials arts is that technique always goes out the window during sparring or in tournament.  Some of that may be true and could be due to the tournament rules and focus on how points are awarded or how certain things are handled.

One of the techniques that helps reinforce good technique is the partnered drill with critiquing and guidance from the instructor while practicing. This is just one approach we use at Loyal Order of the Sword Augusta.
