When you’re in class what do you think about?
- Do you think about the drill or technique at hand?
- Are you visualizing how the technique will go?
- Are you visualizing how this would be applied in a real fight?
- Are you thinking about what you would need to do if the technique fails?
What about outside of class? Do you think about or visualize your techniques when you’re not training?
While you should always be a focused as possible on what you are doing, visualizing should be, needs to be, a part of your training. If all you do is show up for class, train and go home you’re missing a very important step in your skill development. You are slowing your progress and limiting your ability.
The funny thing is that to your brain visulation can be almost as good as doing the real thing!
