How To Win Martial Art Fights
Learning how to win martial art fights really depends on who is doing the fighting. If you're fighting someone who knows martial arts and you know martial arts, you're golden. If you have no self-defense training and you're fighting a martial artist, run away.
- Training is the obvious first step in winning martial art fights. You can't defend against techniques if you don't know what they are or how to block them, and you can't counterattack if you don't know how to work around a block, which you learn in classes at a martial arts school or dojo.
- Eat a balanced diet that supports your exercise routines. If you are lifting weights and engaging in cardio in addition to martial arts training, you need to refuel your body with proper nutrients in order to recover from your workouts. Be sure to drink enough water as well, aiming for four 16.9 ounce bottles daily.
- Organize your sleep cycles. Sleep allows the body to recharge and the brain to store memories from the lessons and training you engaged in during the day. Proper sleep also keeps one alert and focused, making watching your opponent in a martial art fight easier and more natural.
- If the martial art fight is in a sparring session or competition, it would be helpful to know the rules for gaining and losing points. The only way to win is to ensure you gain points, more points than your opponent, and avoid losing points.
- If the martial art fight is a street fight, bar fight, or other kind of "no holds barred" fighting environment, forget the rules from tournaments because the other guy is not likely to abide by them. Utilize items around you for improvised weapons, and avoid trying to be fancy or show off. Quick, decisive strikes to vital areas will ensure you win the martial art fight.
