    Asia,

    Remind me to ask you for advice next time training gets too tuff.

    Skipping, with a rope. Helps develop footwork too.

    For a REAL cardio workout try skipping (without a rope) through you local bikie bar while wearing a tutu.

We usually spend a minimum of an hour a night doing ne waza and tachi waza, and I usually walk out of practice winded, but never dead tired. So anyways, back to my tournament, 30 seconds into the first match and I was already poo-pooed. It's a whole different world out there once you enter shiai, what with the nerves and the adrenaline and what not. It felt just like the wrestling matches I remembered from high school. My judo would have been so much better had I been in better shape. I won, but it was ugly.
    Regardless, that doesn't change the fact that kickboxing is commonly known as fighting while grappling simply isn't. - Osiris

    Old boxing maxim:
    If you are gonna fight for 10 rounds, train for 10,000 rounds...

    You really have to "overtrain" your cardio for a tournament/match, bigtime, and really work on relaxing the first few minutes of the match.

    Relaxation is definitely the key and one of the hardest things to remember to do, for myself at least.

    TKD is excellent for endurance.

    It teaches you to endure much ridicule.

    All the verbal jabs you eat will be good practice for all the actual physical jabs you take with your hands on your chest.

Needless to say I am usually spent to the point of heart attack at the end of every practice. I want to start doing some tournaments now that I have a couple months of judo under my belt. On Saturday my instructor told me and another guy that we should start running to get into cardiovascular shape to be able to do a lot of shiai at a tournament. Personally, I hate working out. I don't have the will power to do it anymore. My exercise comes solely from my martial practice. You guys got any suggestions for cardiovascular exercise that doesn't suck ass?
    Heh. EXACTLY my problem. I don't get to do much workout beyond randori. And I gass in tournaments. If I get six matches, I'm totally spent on the last one. And I can go for 60-90 mins in the club. Tournaments are somehow much more exhausting, has to do with the adrenaline rushes...
    Jumping rope helps me, 10-20 mis a day will improve your shape beyond recognition, and you can do it at home, all you need is a rope (a good one $7 or so).

    Regarding Drummerboy's post. Mental state can contribute a lot to physical performance. If you always train in the same place, at the same time of day, changing that up can have an affect on your performance until you get used to the new circumstances. And that goes for cardio, strength, flxibility, anything.

    Your brain is intimately tied to your body. Never forget that.
