All serious students of the martial arts understand that in order to improve and grow it is necessary to practice. Even though we might practice daily for a set time or length of time, it is not uncommon for the practice to become stale, or a bit commonplace and usual for us. How can we avoid those pitfalls of steady practice, and where can we find inspiration for growth, continued practice and improvement?

Variety is the spice of life. In our chosen martial art, we might practice kicking, or punching, or striking and our practice may offer a combination of techniques we can work on and practice.

Supplementary training by means of conditioning or strengthening or exercises can often help to improve our practice. As we gain in flexibility or coordination, or strength, often we can readily perceive our functional changes in practice.
