Oxford describes the word "practice" as meaning:
To perform (an activity) or exercise (a skill) repeatedly or regularly in order to improve or maintain one’s proficiency.

The word training, by official definitions (oxford, merriam webster, etc.), implies focus on the practice of a specific skill or ability.

In the martial arts this can have different interpretations since "skill" and "ability" can range from small to large subjects, categorically. My question is, how do you choose to use these words, and what differences, if any, do you give them?
