Speed is a key attribute for success in competition and self-defense. Reaction speed is often the sole difference between winning and losing a physical confrontation.
Regardless of your fighting style or method—martial arts, boxing, wrestling, or MMA—you cannot apply it unless you can react quickly and respond accurately! That is exactly what this guide will teach you how to do.
I have heard about countless people who have enrolled in martial arts schools and trained diligently for months or even years, only to find their so-called “deadly techniques” have failed to help them in competition or worse yet, a real fighting situation.
What went wrong? Why didn’t their techniques work as they did in class? Could this happen to you? You bet it could—unless you shift your focus from demonstrations and controlled sparring and start focusing on success in competition and self-defense.
After reading this guide, you will know how to train and develop combat speed. You will not be seduced by an instructor’s board breaking demonstration. You will not even be impressed with an instructor who can throw 20 punches in one second! You—the informed speed student—will know that such demonstrations have little, if anything, to do with speed in competition and self-defense.
The essential ingredient, which I have found all superior fighters possess, is the ability to instantly separate the useful from the useless. By doing so, they are able to get much more out of their training and achieve high levels of skill much faster.
