Krav Maga round up - Monday May 20
Last night the guys warmed up with a quick bodyweight drill. From there it was straight into a multiple attack drill with the guys using sticks, knives and the body shields so we could drive the kicks in. I stressed to the guys the importance of not stopping, even if being held and stabbed. It's not over until you die and you can be lucky and get stabbed 18 times and still live (or unlucky depending on how you look at it). The drill is designed to get you thinking tactically and get you working under pressure. It's good to train like this every so often, along with your pad work and combative sets. However it can detrimental if all you do is this - like being a boxer and just sparring all the time. None of the training we do is random and it is all planned out beforehand with a clear goal set by the coach. The more often you come and train, the more you are exposed to and the better you will get. So get down to training because if you want to be better than everyone else then you need to put the work in and get the hours under your belt. There is nothing stopping you being great at this except you. You can always find money and time. If you think you can't then you are not being resourceful, and resourcefulness is what you need to end a confrontation. Think outside the box. Win at all costs. Most importantly have fun and learn.
