How do you make repetitive training interesting? I am very much of the view that you can only 'learn' a technique from repeatedly doing the same technique.
However I have noticed that many students (esp. beginners) seem to loose interest in a technique once they have done it 10-12 times; possibly because they are still wanting to 'gather techniques' rather than perfect them.
I try to build up to a technique slowly, with various relevant excercises. I've also varied the attack type, but this often confuses beginners. Any suggestions?
