Cinematographic analysis of the intermittent modifications occurring during the acquisition of a novel throwing skill
Numerous investigators agree that, as a new task is practiced, the manipulation aspect tends to be the major contributor to success (Harris and Smith, 1954; Smader and Smith, 1953; Vorro, 1973; Wehrkamp and Smith, 1952). In addition, Wehrkamp and Smith (1952), Rubin, von Trebra, and Smith (1952), Smader and Smith (1953), and Hobart (1972) agree that travel time decreases as a new skill is acquired. These studies have not, however, sought to determine the point during practice at which the change occurred.
