The technique is a major reason why you will be returning to the beginning elements many times during your career. Each time, you will do them with better technique than you were previously capable of understanding.
International style is usually taught with a greater technical emphasis than american style, but it doesn't have to be. It's mostly due to the stereotypical roles of the two styles.
