Speed and technique

Last night session killed my arms… and legs!

We worked on speed combined with the right technique, it was not  just a matter of  fast punches and kicks,  but many repetitions with speed and correct technique,  we did different drills with focus mitts and without.

We also worked on a stress situation, the drill was to avoid strikes with only footwork, we  used blockage but no defense, the intensity of the strikes especially when being stuck in a corner makes the adrenaline flow! but this drill is good and necessary, it is like being hit in the head and different parts of the body ( NOT to hurt, to TRAIN ), it is necessary because if you have never experienced it , the day it happens for real you have no idea how to react, the mind can get confused the technique can be totally lost,  this is why we need to work on this.
