- Basketball meets Martial Arts
“I fear not the man who has practiced 10,000 kicks once, but I fear the man who had practiced one kick 10,000 times.” ― Bruce Lee
All SKILL is composed of two components:
Technique (Learned ability) and Application (The ability to properly use what has been learned)
It is important to understand the difference between the two because it is possible to have technique without application but not possible to have application without technique. Too many young players today are coached by people who only teach technique and leave it up to the player to figure out the application on his or her own. The catch is true skill is in the application of a technique. Ask yourself, what happens when two players of equal athletic ability face off? Who wins? The answer is the player who has the greatest application of his or her technique. We are not flashy but we are effective.
