When it comes to martial arts and developing quality skills repetition is the key.
And the key to repetition is the word….AGAIN!!!
It’s one word but in that one word it tells the person what to do, the importance of what they are doing and the power of doing it….AGAIN!!!!
Because the act of repeating something over and over again has power.
Your body starts to own the movement, then correct the movement, the develop the movement and then master the movement.
When you look at high level Muay Thai fighter, Jiu-Jitsuka or any high level athlete or performer, they have developed their skills to such a high level that it is almost impossible for them to do it wrong.
I remember watching this movie called “Iron and Silk” with Mark Salzman.
He is a high level wushu practitioner and in the movie he had to act as himself when he was a beginner and though he did his best to act like beginner, I could tell he was struggling with it because his body is so tuned to do it right.
So if you want to develop high quality skills, go do it….AGAIN!!! And keep doing it…AGAIN!!!
