You’re probably exposed to, like, a thousand different techniques each year.
Okay, maybe not a thousand… But certainly to a lot of different moves, most of which you don’t really learn. Which you don’t really acquire, absorb.
Brian Glick explains what’s happening here:
The difference isn’t whether you are EXPOSED to great information – its whether you can NOTICE it and ABSORB it.
Mostly we’re trained to be passive listeners, to sit still and get through it. But absorbing what’s important is an ACTIVE process.
It takes consideration, experimentation, involvement, commitment.
In other words, if you want to truly learn and be able to replicate something, then you need to apply yourself to the craft.
Both on the mats and in everyday life:
This applies to technique but to everything else as well – strategy, mindset, even training atmosphere.
Absorption isn’t passive or casual, so go the extra mile and give serious attention to those techniques, tactics and concepts that can make the biggest difference for you in your practice right now.
