If you only train against a heavy bag, or practice & rehearse
self defense drills in a mcdojo, or are being trained by an arm
chair instructor with no real fight experience your in trouble!
Now listen this is very crucial for all the information you know
and all your hard work and training. You need to purchase a
martial artshelmet, and 16 oz open hand mma gloves, find a
park with a training partner and get out there and practice
fighting through sparring exercises!
You need to feel the stress and pressure of engaging an
opponent, feel the pain of being hit, feel the stress of having
fists and kicks flying at you, I even recommend sparring with
no gloves or helmets once you and your partner are good.
You may have all my self defense and fighting tips memorized
and I commend you for it, but if you don’t have any experience
of being hit, timing, speed, range of motion, and actual fighting
experience you could end up dead after a street attack.
You need to be able to be calm and relaxed while you are
having fists hitting your wrists, punching your face, being
grabbed and attacked. The only way you can develop this
sense of calm is through experience only.
Continue studying and training in your martial art and do sparring
and practicing combat with a partner, safety gear and raw
aggression. It will enhance your performance at minimum
