Self Training Help
Hey guys, can someone give me some tips on self training.... i did taekwondo for about 1 year and switched to muay thai for another, only problem...the muay thai gym is closed for a couple of months and i dont want to go back to taekwondo.
Anyway, i need some training tips that i can do at home or w.e... i train my kicks, punches, push ups, situps, handstand puchups, squats...thats about it...but i want to improve my reaction time...so i meditate for that...err..if you got any thing..please share
I want to practise some judo moves i picked up and some aikido for self defense purposes ..... well yea...help
Whats up kppgno? Get your self a heavy bag & a speed bag to start with.
As far as I know meditation calms the mind & has little to do with reaction time.
To help improve your reaction time, get your self a super ball,you know one's that bounces like three miles into air.Stand about 6' from a wall & bounce it from the floor to the wall then catch it on the rebound.The harder you throw it the faster it rebounds thus improving your hand eye coordination & your reaction time.
As for your judo moves your going to need a partner,kind of hard to do that solo.
Might I suggest running/road work? This is actually more of a case of 'do as I say, not as I do' because my running is sorely lacking. Still, it's something that you can do on your own and will help your MT.
Bas rutten workout excellent stuff a great workout + you train your basics
meh **** roadwork imo, just hit the bag more. i never run.

Reason: forgot something
To each his own I suppose. I've found that the more I run the better I feel about my general level of fitness. Also, if I take a half an hour to run then it varies my work out and I don't get bored of hammering the bag.

The street argument is retarded. BJJ is so much overkill for the street that its ridiculous. Unless you're the idiot that picks a fight with the high school wrestling team, barring knife or gun play, the opponent shouldn't make it past double leg + ground and pound - Osiris
