Learning to control one’s muscles is one of the most important benefits of WingTsun™ training. Through consistent and repetitive training, both with and without a partner, success in learning techniques can be achieved. Through repetition, the mind and body can unify.
There is no real substitute for repetition. Your mind and body develops the neural pathways after consistent use. If the body is called upon to use a particular area of the body consistently, the body will develop that particular area, both in muscle tone, bone and nervous tissue. The learning takes place in the Cerebellum, a part of the brain located at its lower back portion. This is a clever adaptation of the body, since it takes less time for the body part to react if the center for this processing is closer to the area that is involved, i.e., the arm or leg.
