Train the Brain to Form Good Habits Through Repetition (10,000 reps)

 

In Tai Chi, in particular, and martial arts in general, it is known that you do not really have a skill until you have performed 10,000 repetitions of that skill. One reason for daily practice; and one reason Tai Chi is so repetitive in practice.

 

Summary: According to researchers, forming both good and bad habits depends more on how often you perform an action than the satisfaction you get from the action.

Mindfulness Meditation and Relaxation Response Have Different Effects on Brain Function

Whenever I read about studies having to do with these or other related subjects (e.g., rehab, fitness training, self-defense tactics), I am struck by the fact that they are really researching Tai chi. (Here is the link to the discussion of the Study that provoked this Post.) Grey Cook’s book, Movement comes to mind as a classic example.

Tai Chi Chuan (the “Chuan” connotes the martial aspects of the discipline) is all of these things simultaneously; and more. People that I speak with know that I am a Tai Chi guy, so they just chalk it up to my enthusiasm. Some people, though, who are in the middle of the world of related research are able to appreciate the “complete” nature of Tai Chi Chuan.

Of course not all Tai Chi is equal: you have to have good instruction; and you have to practice correctly. But training within a traditional Tai Chi syllabus under good instruction provides as complete a system of exercise and self-defense, including all aspects of exercise (including rehab) as a person is going to find.
