Practice isn’t glamorous, but it is essential.
Remember Mr. Miagi from the original Karate Kid movie (I haven’t seen the new one yet… but I will… so cut me some slack, okay?)?
“Wax on, wax off…”
He had his student practice the most mundane movement (waxing the car), and that basic move became so ingrained that it was in muscle memory. It also happened to be identical to a fighting move.
Black belt proficiency from boring practice.
That’s the way it works.
What is your version of “wax on, wax off”?
How often do you practice it?
