Working sections of the form together that are not normally in that order is one of my favorite training methods.
As an example taking the first 3 movements of a form and then linking them to movements 8 to 10, then 6 to 7, and so on. This brings awareness of transitions to your training and can bring dead forms practice to life.
Changing direction each time you change sections is also a good practice. Footwork should be fluid and changing, not fixed.
This is working on the Art part.
