Repetition is key to training. While it’s true that we aren’t here to have the same dull experience over and over, it is also true that repeating the same thing over and over again gives us information. That limitation is really only the act of trying not to do something we really do. We will continue to repeat what we are doing until we gain more awareness or until something is really heard.
We often practice and repeat patterns we are completely unaware of and it usually takes discomfort, conflict or some outside source to enlighten us. This is one of the many reasons I love boxing.
