If you plan to fight in mixed martial arts, you’d better start training as soon as possible. Combat is the closest we can get to fighting. High intensity sparring is required to become a formidable opponent for anyone. Here are some tips to improve your sparring session from the start.
You will realize that before you know it you will be knocked down, punched in the face, kicked in the stomach, etc. That is if you are training with someone good. Your best defense at first is to keep moving unexpectedly in different directions.
If you are not moving, you are probably not giving your training partner enough resistance. This isn’t actually doing both of you any favors and you’re likely wasting valuable training time.
Go at your own pace.
If you are actually training with better than yourself, as you should, you will immediately realize that you need to control your pace in order to do more than one round. Expect to be hit or hit.
Practicing for periods of time with fighters who are much better than you will adapt you to training with these guys much faster than anticipated. Never give up and show your willingness to be there.
Jab, Jab, Cruz. Jab, Jab, Cruz. What do you think the next combination will be? Yes, you are right and so is your opponent. Don’t let your opponent anticipate your every move or he’ll start to counterattack with ease.
Be dynamic and throw fast-changing combinations. They will throw your opponent off balance and keep him guessing, and can throw him off balance for his most powerful combination.
These tips can help you in training take your fighting game to a whole new level with combat. Using a quality MMA training program will develop you and prepare you for the things they don’t teach you at your club.
