Schlagwort-Archive: Ash Smith


Ash Smith describes in this article, how the effects of pressure on performance and how the natural defence mechanism of our bodies can lead into “mind blindness” and consequently to making poor decisions. And you can find some very nice examples for differencial and implicit learning!

„In a constraints led model the coach will design practice so that the task contains a specific constraint, or so that the performer themselves is constrained in some way (physically or cognitively). The constraint being such that it guides the performer towards the desired change of movement pattern or behaviour. This approach has the benefit of helping the performer develop feel for the change from their own experiences and as such internalise it more effectively – thus accelerating the speed of skill acquisition.“ (Ash Smith: Comfortable with being uncomfortable?)
