The lesson is in the game!

Rafe Kelley zegt het treffend: “The central principle revealed by all of these examples is that THE LESSON IS IN THE GAME. This does not mean that technique drilling is not valuable or useful, it is rather a shift in emphasis. The full set of fundamental skills are only found in the game, the game is the foundation. Isolated skill building is a tool to overcome weaknesses revealed in the game where necessary. “.

En later zegt hij wederom iets wat ik belangrijk vind in mijn onderwijs en eigen training:
“Traditionally training has focused on technical development where the game is then the application. This is the wrong approach. It is in the game that the greatest amount of learning happens and training that more closely resembles the game will develop a broader, more transferable set of abilities.”.
