Do you picture someone in your mind when you fight, if so, who? When I fight, I visualize Emily Browning. It actually does make me more accurate, even while im having an adreneline dump.

I do not try to pretend to be anyone else. That's the quickest way to get your ass beat.


But I DO use visualization AWAY from the gym. I visualize proper mechanics/technique when I'm driving, or lying in bed at night or even when daydreaming at work.

I visualize not just proper technique, but proper technique in APPLICATION -- by visualizing the sparring scenarios that usually occur.

This has helped me tremendously in many ways.


Pretending to be Bruce Lee or someone else on the other hand might possible make me try and "fight like Bruce Lee" or whomever. That's not a good thing for the obvious reasons.

The old chinese masters imitated or 'borrowed' the actions and behaviour of animals and insects to formulate a whole system of MA involved a form of visualisation. Because it was felt that the human body was inherently weaker, slower and less deadly than animals and insects. What if I could fight like a tiger, they asked.

So imagine or visualise you have the strenght and ferocity of a tiger; the agility of a monkey; the striking speed of a praying mantis; the quick penetrative movement of a snake; the single-mindedness of a dog; the evasive maneuver of a crane; and also in combination with the innate characteristics of the five elements -- gold, wood, water, fire & earth and you will have the mind-boggling permutations which exist in some traditional chinese systems which have may be 35 or more katas.

I don't visualise I am someone or something else. But I do visualise I am the winner in a contest. Away from MA and during my school days when I was the school's 100 & 200m sprint champion, I always visualise touching the finishing tape first.

Hi all, do a web search for Neuro Linguistic Programming or NLP, which is used in all walks of life, but is especially applicable to MA's and Combatives.

Take care,

Gaffer.
