Fear is a natural part of fighting. It is fear and the desire for survival that fires up your adrenaline. Now, once you realize that the new heightened sensation is a benefit not necessarily a detriment you have conquered one issue. The other issue is you need to train and SPAR. If you do not spar, get hit and hit you can kata til the cows come home and be a dead man. Realizing where the rush is coming from and having the tools to defend yourself equals confidence.

this might sound silly but the way i came to overcome my fear of a street fight was taking a really bad beating in my first ever fight, i ended up with broken ribs and a shattered eye socket, which was my own fault for stikin up for my friend absolutely poundin my opponent then making one silly move and the fight turned nasty in his favour. and ever since then i have never been scared wen bein confronted jumped whatever you can imagine i seemed to have come to terms with the fatc that i got about the worst you can get without the use of weapons and im not afraid to take a beatin, plus now i fight till the end neway im not sayin go out n lose u shudnt fight at all, but never think you are too good big n hard coz there is always someone better than you out there and they will find you.

Hay read this!!!

The most destructive element in the human mind is fear. Fear creates aggressiveness.
Any technique, however worthy and desirable, becomes a disease when the mind is obsessed with it.

I agree with the sparring side of things it builds your confidence. Read the quote below!

Hi. Training can make a person fitter stronger faster more skilled etc etc but then I think a person might want to train under pressure. This is a suggestion. If you have a specific good technique on the pads train it. Ask someone to give you mild verbal abuse while training it. Check whats going on in your head.Check your fear level. If that is fine go further with the verbal abuse technique training. Check what is going on in your head if its ok keep going. The end goal is for some one to be shouting swearing and being realy critical and your technique is still fine although you might be feeling scared.

The next step is have some one who can say punch or kick realy hard punch or kick the pads while you hold them.

Then you do your technique while they shout and swear.
If you feel scared while training then try to shout as you train. .

This is the start of mental conditioning.

Combine all this with sparring.

It goes further but wait untill you can handle the above before you go on to the next step. If you can then thats fine. The above is only a suggestion its up to you if you want to try it or not.
