Technique Before Skill

 When we see someone accomplished at something; think professional riders, tennis players, swimmers etc they have a high level of what we know and label as skill. But how did they get there? How did they acquire that skill?

It comes from learning a TECHNIQUE, which then becomes an accomplished skill through repetition and practice.

Learning a technique means that you understand the ‘why’ as well as the ‘how’. Learning how all the pieces of the puzzle fit together so you can arrange them correctly to build a picture that makes sense.

It is very difficult to be skilful at anything if you have no technique.

Do you have a technique for your riding and training that you can practice?
