Motor Development – Discussion A

There are a number of motor skills which are practiced all over the world both for the amusement, completing the daily tasks and self-defense. My selected motor skill is the motor movement of the body in Karate. Karate requires the higher level of concentration and perfect motor skills development. The main aim of the paper is to explain a motor skill with which I am familiar, its learning stages, the way of achieving perfection and how could that motor skill be beneficial.

The video selected is for the demonstration of how a new person can get himself engaged to the karate. It is a part of the movie in which a boy was suffering shoulder pain due to some fight incident. His teacher initially refuses to help him out in his cases but then he tries to help him out but was unable to because of the boy’s pain in the shoulder. Through his skills and experience, he heals the boy from the pain and then asks him to demonstrate the actions required in karate, the skills which are highly practiced to make them the flawless motor skills.

Initially, the learner is required to become highly consistent with it for getting familiar with it. When the skills are performed on the permanent basis, then the new things and complexity are added to them as shown in the video that the teacher attacks the kid and he defends himself with the help of the motor skills used in karate.

As soon as we get used to the skills, decreased efforts are observed because of the less cognitive and physical effort utilized. The attention demand is also reduced. With the passage of time, the body finds its adaptability with the skills which is highly demanded in the karate practice. In a nutshell, it can be explained that as much as we practice, we get used to it and the level of distraction and wrong acts is highly decreased.
