Additional Points To Remember

Remember it is always important to select a few techniques to practice consistently every day. As good techniques can get you better scores with ease, work constantly to sharpen your techniques.

– Always work on a game strategy or a plan on how to approach your opponent in the competition. To implement your plan, you must practice daily to be calm and calculative.

– Always maintain your energy during a competition and this requires you to be match fit.

– Always try to find out a way to improve. Learn from your last fight by analyzing how you won or lost.

– Always hide your technique. Place your opponent guessing your stance or your technique, and also maintain your height level.

– Always learn to be in the correct posture so that you will move correctly according to your speed. Your feet must point in the direction where you wish to go and your supporting leg must push you in the direction in which you want to go.

– Always follow a technique that will help you to win. Following multiple techniques at the same time is not a must to follow.

– Always avoid the mistake of considering the head as the target in a competition. You can score points with your well-timed reverse punch against the mid-section of your opponent.

– Always consider your guard as your shield. It will make it difficult for your opponent to score against you and protect you from your opponent. Learn to maintain correct distance to be away from your opponent’s attacks.
