Hi, Janet!

As a therapist, I think of the training in the basic movements we do as gradually hardwiring our brains so we don't have to use our cortex (the problem soloving/judgement making parts)to consciously flow. When we can do randori and not "think"through each movement, then the basics have become "subcortical" and that means its starting to be part of us.

It takes thousands of repetitions for this to happen, thats why consistent training is so important. Like for any other skilled movement.
