I was wondering how many of you guys train for realism, or do sim, or scenario training?

Also curious what equipment you use, and the situations you set up.

Or even if you think it is a wasteful exercise...

Training for realism is the best thing you could do. Every couple of months my sensei tells us that today's class will be done in street cloths (ie whatever we were wearing when we walked in). Moving and kicking is alot different when your wearing shoes, jeans and shades.

We give training against weapons, mainly the knife but sticks and other improvised weapons are used and learned to defend against. I teach how to effectively use things like eye-jabs and groin shots to help win a fight. Now I'm giving the typical "just kick em in the jimmy" type of technique. But I do work these things into combinations of moves.
We train against ambush attacks like a rear bear hug. Multiple opponents are trained against also.
I think that the most realistic thing we do is to punch and kick the bags and pads. This really gets a person to punch and kick realistically. It also drives home to the pad holder that kicks and punches can hurt and gives the pad holder ability to "read" opponents.

As for training in street clothes.. we don't like to do that because our students don't like to ruin them. But we don't train in "gi" either. just a pair of shorts and a t-shirt. We point out what techniques work better with shoes on and what doesn't.

Training for realism I guess we do it sometimes, but for the most part we just do the basic training.

I just finished a day of scenario training at work today. I always find them helpful, we wear some saftey equipment, but generally wear normal clothing. It is always enering, because it turns out very much like a real encounter, and plays it out differently than "sparring" or competition.

While punching and kicking the pads and the bag are excellent tools, I think they are nothing like an encounter. Face it it's usually a one sided exchange at best, even if the pad holder throws in kicks or throws punches.

I like the street clothing training once ever couple of months, although warning is probably good...just so you don't wreck your good clothes.
