Today I am chatting with Ed Ingamells. (Aka the Partybear).
Ed is a black belt and coach at the Institute of Grappling in North London, UK.
As a former Neuroscience PhD student, Ed has a deep understanding of cognitive psychology. Ed talks about his shift in recent years to a more ecological approach and how ecological psychology and direct perception make more sense to him from a skill development and motor-learning perspective.
If you enjoyed the convo you can find other podcast appearances by Ed here and here.
If you'd like to reach out to Ed, you can do so here and here.
In the first part of the chat, we talk about the role of memory and cognition in skill development before moving on to discussing our ever evolving endeavors to optimize practice design.
Thanks to all that download and listen.
