For example, a simple step in a dance, a short rhythm in a percussion instrument, or a shot in a sporting event are all technically minimal movements. If a beginner practices one of these for 30 minutes a day, his or her body will begin to learn the movement in about a week, but it will still be awkward; by the third month, the body will be able to move smoothly and naturally without thinking about it, and it will not look amateurish, although it may not be of high quality. If you have practiced two or three other basic techniques by the end of the third month, you will be able to do a combination of them. However, this is the stage where your body is finally ready for the movement. This is a short period of time for the synapses to grow.

The rest of the time is spent practicing in a way that allows you to maintain a high level of concentration, comparing your movements with those of advanced practitioners using video and other means, making corrections, repeating, and trying new things. After about three years, the results become clear. Synapses are not affected by age, and you can improve at any age. However, just as in exercise, if you have been exercising from a young age until you are old, your body will quickly adapt to learning new movements at an older age because your synapses are already established. On the other hand, if you suddenly start exercising in old age, it will take longer because you have fewer synapses. This is also true for using our brains.
