The distinction between practice and training… 12


I’d like to make a distinction to my fellow practitioners between practice and training. Practice is something one does to deceive themselves and their seniors that they have in fact trained. The goal of practice is generally to look like whoever inspired one to practice in the first place.

Training on the other hand is sticking with the same boring exercise over and over again until it reveals itself to you. Stillness is the mother of movement, and if you train the same exercise over and over again it will cause you ( out of boredom) to seek out greater and greater details and comprehension. Training will actually make changes in the body that often cannot be seen only felt.
