This learning methodology is called 'Shakyo' in Japanese, named after a practice of hand-copying sutras. (Sutras for Buddhist is similar to the Bible for Christian, see Sutra copying - Wikipedia)
However there are some people with opposite view. The original Shakyo practice include to empty his/her mind. That means Shakyo as programming practice must include to empty mind. Hand-copying sample code in empty mind is not good practice for learning programming, we should think a lot.
I think the word Shakyo causes misunderstanding. But I have no idea to replace it. Do you have any idea for that? Please tell me your opinion.

I found the quote on 2011 and tweeted in Japanese. Curiously it was retweeted in these days by a lot of people, so I translated it now.
