Right before a fight, you inhale a large amount of air, you hold it in till the fight is done. This is one preferred method to defeating your "adrenaline rush"

There are no guarantees that you can control an adrenaline dump, sometimes it will simply get the best of you. However, if you learn to control your breathing and match your breathing to your motion you will have the best chance to control the adrenaline dump. By this I mean the intensity of your breathing should automatically match the intensity of your work. If you are working hard your breathing should automatically be intense from the first second the work becomes hard. Often our breathing lags behind and we end up in an oxygen difficeny state which makes everything more difficult. Example: You start to run but don't change your breathing until your oxygen level has dropped dramatically in the blood. Now you start to breathe harder and deeper but your cells are already starved and behind the power curve. Therefore learning to match your breathing with your motion is a big help, that way you automatically adjust your breathing to match the work at the beginning.

The best way to practices this is to do it 24/7 in everything you do. When you get up from a chair make sure your breathing, don't hold your breath. When you are walking match your inhales and exhales with your step. One step, inhale, one step exhale, etc. Or two steps inhale, two steps exhale. Vary it and learn. Learn to coordinate your breathing with every motion you make.

Also remember when doing heavy work or during an intense situation inhale through the nose and exhale through the mouth. Keep the body as relaxed as possible. It can help to visualize breathing through the body, i.e. inhale from the feet to the head, exhale from the head to the feet. This helps to keep the body relaxed.

There is much more but that will get you started.

Take care,

Mark J.

I agree with Mark for the most part. When I had trouble with this, my sensei told me "just keep your breathing ahead of your activity" and that worked fine. It makes it work during "endurance" drills and in tournament fights as well.

Breathing is a 24/7 operation, and it will control the adrenaline rush if you learn to bring it up to the level of the activity you're engaging in. Your body will "learn" that you don't need the adrenaline to do your activity if you have your breathing right ahead of schedule. I don't think you can train to overcome the emotional side of it, if that's what's causing it, but you can try to sink those feelings into your subconscious and visualize how you're going to fight, rather than getting hyped up to go into the ring.

If I might make a book suggestion that is somewhat related. 'Deep Survival: Who Lives, Who Dies and Why' by Laurence Gonzales. This is an excellent book about people that live or die in extreme situations. Early in the book he goes into a good deal of medical detail concerning adrenaline and other chemicals in the body. One of the biggest affects for survival is the ability for a person to see the world the way it really is, not they way they wish it to be. This means the individual must be totally honest and totally accepting of the situation, which is not easy. Gonzales gives a number of fascinating case studies to illustrate this point. If you a chance pick up a copy.

Take care,

Mark J.

Learning to control our emotions is a lifetime of work. It's easy to say and have definitions about how to do it, it's a little more difficult to actually put into practice... otherwise, they wouldn't be emotions.

There is an interesting article that just came out on the RMA March Newsletter that relates to the topic at hand. I thought you guys might find it interesting. Rather than reprint the article you can check it out at the following address:

Hello Trejo539:

Unfortunately no matter how good any of us might be this is not something which can be taught exclusively via the written word. Even so, I'll do what I can...

There are some specific breathing exercises which are designed to trigger an adrenal response. There are many other methods to achieve this type of thing but the exercises are depthful. Typically called Sanchin kata though others can be used in the same manner and provide identical results.

The idea is NOT to control the rush but instead NOT to let it control you. The reason we practice is so that we can simulate these feelings, sensations... and learn how to cope so that you don't shut down overwhelmed by them, OR go insane giving into them. Your heart is pounding, hands shaking, great... now use those sensations and do not lose control because of them.

If you are breathing normally, you are not angry. When you are angry your breathing changes... When you are in pain, sobbing, sad, your breathing has changed. Learning techniques of breathing allows us tools to harness the adrenal system so we can turn it on much like a light switch at will....

Learning to use that adrenaline or set it aside is the excellent challenge. Learn it well and you have an excellent tool to explore and use...

Jeff
