Are You Achieving the Results You Deserve?

Champions have that vital 'X' factor which helps them find a way to win, even when everything is against them.

Regardless of whether you practice Brazilian Jiu Jitsu, Ultimate Fighting, Karate, Taekwondo or other forms of combat (and I have worked with them all), a massive part of success lies in mental strength.

Even when you are being matched in every other way - speed, technique, anticipation, power.... your mind can pull out a victory.

Only the mentally tough are able to consistently fight at the peak of their powers -  in speed, strength, skill, technique, anticipation of your opponent's moves, muscle memory, agility etc.

Or if they are not at the peak of their powers, somehow they still manage to find a way to win.

When martial arts opponents of equal skill face each other in combat - only strength of mind will separate them.

Training mind AND body gives you the vital edge over most of your opponents, who only do physical training.

There is no area of your performance which cannot be improved, in terms of technique and skills - which can be mastered in accelerated time by combining both your mental and physical regime.

Better still, if you use mind techniques like visualisation and hypnosis, you can completely target your inner powers to your next tournament, opponent, venue - and the exact needs you will require for that time.

Champions Use the Power of the Mind

• Bruce Lee is widely regarded as one of the greatest martial artists of all time. 

He believed that mental training was just as important as physical workouts, and he developed his own philosophy of martial arts that emphasized focus and discipline. Lee practiced techniques such as meditation and visualization to help him stay calm and focused during competition.

Other massively successful martial artists who are famous for their inner toughness, and who use a wide range of mind techniques, such as focus, visualization, positive self-talk, breathing exercises, mindfulness meditation etc - include:

• Jet Li - studied Buddhism and Taoism, and incorporates principles from these philosophies into his practice

• Conor McGregor - former UFC featherweight and lightweight champion, known for his belief and confidence

Marcus Almeida Buchecha - Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu practitioner and multiple-time world champion.

Marcelo Garcia - Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu practitioner and world champion who is considered one of the greatest grapplers of all time.

• Lyoto Machida - the Brazilian Karateka and mixed martial artist who won the UFC Light Heavyweight Championship, known for his precision and inner discipline, who studied meditation and other techniques to help him stay focused and centered during competition.

Gichin Funakoshi - Founder of Shotokan Karate, one of the most widely practiced styles of Karate today.

Hadi Saei - Iranian Taekwondo athlete and two-time Olympic gold medalist.

Jade Jones - Welsh Taekwondo athlete who has won multiple Olympic, World, and European championships.

• Anderson Silva - the Brazilian MMA  champion known for his precision

• Georges St-Pierre - the Canadian famous for his technical skill

• Ronda Rousey - known for her physical strength and powerful mind

• Jon Jones - former UFC light heavyweight champion

• Demetrious Johnson - former UFC flyweight champion

• Joanna Jędrzejczyk - former UFC women's strawweight champion

• Fedor Emelianenko - the former PRIDE heavyweight champion

• Masahiko Kimura - The Japanese judoka and professional wrestler was known for his use of meditation and mental training to improve his focus and mental toughness in competition.

These are just a few examples of champion martial artists who have used mental training to gain an edge in competition. Mental preparation is an essential part of martial arts training and can help athletes perform at their best in the ring or on the mat.

  Keys to Success

Mental strength can create a Zen-like mental state which delivers absolute peak performance direct from your subconscious mind and muscle memory.

Automatic muscle memory - this is where all those perfectly timed, lightning fast and laser-accurate kicks, strikes, blocks, holds and punches originate from.

This is what mental training does. It brings out your best - when it matters most. 

No matter whether you use visualisation, meditation, hypnosis, positive imagery, theta-level recordings etc - or blend all of these, as I like to do for my clients - any of these will bring about improvement when it matters most.


Mind Training Benefits

Advantages / Uses:

• Reinforce - or accelerate the mastery of - strong martial arts technique using guided visualisation

• Overcoming intimidation & self-sabotage - particularly physical or mental intimidation when facing larger or more powerful opponents

• Heightened senses / anticipation / spacial awareness of your opponent   - which opens door to the optimum possible outcome from all situations - eg. incredible speed of movement, always knowing exactly where you should be, making the right move at the right time, intuiting your opponent's next move etc.

• Develop deep unwavering focus -  without distraction from your opponent's skill, size, speed or reputation - or the crowd

As this is an area your opponent is probably not looking into - this gives you a massive edge when the time comes. There are zero disadvantages to being mentally stronger - as this is the area which controls performance.

In physical practice there are only so many ways you can find an advantage over the competition.

But when you begin to explore the mind aspect of combat, it opens up a whole new form of expertise, unknown to your opponent, that can give you the edge in the heat of battle.

As this is an area your opponent is probably not looking into - this gives you a massive edge when the time comes. There are zero disadvantages to being mentally stronger - as this is the area which controls performance.

Because even a 1% advantage is often all it takes to secure victory.

And the mental side has shown to improve performance in ways that far surpass this mark, many times over.

Of course, there are also the slower and longer-term methods, such as:

Consistent Practice - maintain a schedule that works for you, at least two to three times per week can help you see improvements in your technique and form.

Setting goals - Set both short-term and long-term goals to help you stay motivated and focused, whether it's improving a particular technique or mastering a certain form, setting goals can help you stay on track and see progress in your practice.

Focus on form - Proper form is essential to avoid injury and improve overall performance.

Flexibility and strength - Martial arts requires a lot of physical movement and flexibility. Incorporate stretching and strength training into your routine to help improve your performance and reduce the risk of injury.

Learning from others - Attending seminars, workshops, and training with others to gain new perspectives and improve your technique.

Seeking feedback - Get feedback from your instructor or training partner to help identify areas where you can improve - which allows you to make adjustments to your technique and form, which can help you see improvements in your overall performance.

But when all is said and done - the fast track to improvement is through the mind.
