Romanov on Perception

Today I watched Dr. Nicholas Romanov discuss teaching vs. training.

Training is “developing physiological abilities,” or developing the systems for movement, whereas teaching is “developing perception,” or developing the movement itself.

Are you training or teaching? The answer probably depends on the athletes, students, class, discipline, rehearsal, movement, sport, game, song, weather, etc.

Dr. Romanov says, “I am not teaching people to think. I am teaching them to perceive. … This is a huge difference.” Stated similarly, Bruce Lee says, “Don’t think! Feel!”
