laptop, geek, MacBook, bursting, breakout


Today, I will mostly be trying to get Kushanku memorised. This is quite a long karate kata, and even the shorter ones often give me gyp.

I've been wondering recently whether there's any particular technique to learning physical stuff, other than just doing it over and over again. Practising it in class is fine for improving the moves once I've learned them, but it doesn't seem to get the actual sequence of moves into my head in the first place very well...

Anyway. This afternoon I'll be using the ungainly doing-the-moves-whilst-holding-the-kata-book-in-my-hand technique, which worked (eventually) for the five Pinan katas.
