It is said that in the heat of battle that technique will reveal itself. Tell that to someone who gets into the Octagon, drops their right on their jab and catches one on the chin!
We must address the reality of fighting and confrontation. Krav Maga, Kali Silat, MMA, BJJ and Muay Thai Kickboxing at Elite Training Center in Redondo Beach always stresses the importance of technique. Therefore we pay close attention to not only deployment of strikes, but also the risks therein. To perform sloppily in any of life’s endeavors will often leave us unsuccessful (“whoops…” said the doctor as he performed surgery).
Human possess about 30 to 45 seconds of adrenaline which surges through the body under extreme duress. From that point on, if the altercation hasn’t been resolved, training and conditioning will be called upon. With limbs flailing and searching out targets, proper training will be the solution in the end. Proper training consists of many key elements, however technique, conditioning, and control are 3 major points to focus on.
At Elite our classes cover the above 3 components. It is up to the student to decide if all 3 are trained in or not. We instill in people to not neglect those classes that challenge. In fact we encourage all students to stay current in all areas. One can never tell if today will be the day that these 3 components will be necessary.
