I don't practice any martial art but I do train a similar sport. I
think all sports have an aspect of craft -- improving existing
techniques or learning new ones -- which programming also has. Think
of learning about, say, macros for the first time (learning new
technique) or improving your current programming workflow (existing
technique). Good programmers pay conscious attention to their craft,
and to improving it.

You might find "code katas" interesting.
