Why do you forget the techniques you study when you fight?

Techniques and methods to memorize martial arts and combat sports.

It doesn’t just happen to you but it happens to everyone at least once or more times to do the exercises and then when you do sparring or fighting on the ground you don’t remember anything, clouded, confused, dispassed etc. yet you did technical exercises just a few moments before.

Don’t worry, you’re not just about the techniques.

Many guys do well technical exercises, no problems and correctly during the teaching part and then as soon as the less guided stop part begins they forget everything they have just done.

When sparring I try to propose situations not far from the exercises just done, both I and the advanced students know to guide the beginner in the position or combination just studied to make her try in a sparring situation that they have just studied in class and you do it by putting a little bit of “slow down”to give them time to react.

Yet it is not enough, a lot of students go blank, they do no technique and even less what they have just seen.

Yes, I get angry because:

“This is what we have just studied and tried. Do the “move” you just learned! “

The light suddenly comes into their eyes and they start to try.

But why do students often forget exactly what they just learned in class?

The response under adrenaline and under stress of techniques:

A combination of adrenaline, increased psychological excitement and fatigue.

These prevent our ability to recognize and remember our techniques.

Increased emotional states negatively affect your ability to mentally process information and react smoothly and quickly to stimuli.

Many studies have shown that people lose control over their finer motor skills when they are stressed, and we are in a protected environment as the gym you imagine a situation of self-defense of a real aggression??

Criticism of self-defense experts

Many self-defense experts are critical of some defense techniques involving complicated wrist levers point out that in a self-defense situation with adrenaline ball, you have a limited ability to effectively perform movements that require precision and dexterity.

Larger motor movements (larger movements) involving the whole body – such as a double take down to the leg – are easier for the body to make than a lever on the wrist that requires a grip and precise timing/movements to function effectively.

You can also know 1000 techniques,but when you receive a strong stress and the adrenaline acts you create in you the tunnel effect, you just a tunnel vision that narrows the focus and your ability to remember techniques is cut in half.

You will only be able to use a small subset of the total techniques you have studied.

The more you work under stress the more you increase the ability to use the techniques that study even the most complex ones but you have to try and test everything under stress so you start to understand that you’ll be very wrong by taking shots or undergoing levers because you’re trying in a non-cooperative context techniques that you want to learn how to make it really work and that’s just how you have to do without wanting to be an actor for the movies.

Do you want to read an interesting book on these aspects?.

Read On Combat by Dave Grossman with Loren W. Christensen.

In this book you will find many interesting ideas if you practice self-defense.

Physical fatigue

Another important factor is physical fatigue.

Observe the difference between the clean techniques performed by MMA fighters in the first round compared to the shots pulled in the third round, the shots are slower, less precise and limited as number, more firm in the legs.

Being tired severely limits both our mental and physical capacity.

You can’t think.

What can you do??.

Three important things:

The first one, he spends a lot of hours trying and studying.

The experience in training those techniques are too important for your muscle memory which will gradually increase the ability to remember those techniques during combat stress.

The second one is breathing.

You are something very important.

Meditation and other relaxation methods involve controlling your breath and breathing slowly and deeply.

The incredible Kron Gracie spoke in interviews about his obsessive care about the importance of relaxing breathing in combat.

When we’re tense while you’re fighting or fighting, if you’re too tense unconscious you’re holding your breath.

You don’t breathe, and this quickly physically blocks you and closes your mind.

Stop it over.

– The third, you have to compete or challenge your teammates really.

Many instructors know that competition exposes you by getting you out of the comfort zone, it exposes you to conditions that stress you out and that put you to the test allowing you to test your ability to use techniques in a stressful situation.

Do these three things and it will be very difficult to forget the techniques you have studied.
