Children’s Martial Arts Training – Muscle Memory
Bruce Lee, the famous martial artist and actor had a great quote ….
“I don’t fear the man that has practiced 10,000 different kicks. I fear the man that has practiced the same kick 10,000 different times”
Awesome stuff. He basically saying “muscle memory is key”. The more often you do something, the better you know how to do it, the better you can control it, the more often you can repeat exactly what you intend to do.
Systema in much the same way keeps training principles simple. Breathe control, continuous Movement, stay Relaxed. In the children’s martial arts training these are practiced over and over in various ways – each time better and better.
