One of the main problems when confronted with a street self defense situation. Are the effects of adrenaline. Though it prepares body and mind for physical exertion it also disturbs your fine motor skills and may cause those jelly arms and legs. My way of trying to emulate these effects is a 1 minute sprint after which sparring immediately commences.
My question to you is whether you know of any other exercises which may yield the same or a better result or are more efficient.

IMHO, the sprint might not do the job because your mind will be calm, and you are attributing your physical state to the sprint. How about combining sprint with imagination? Picture an attack, as realistically as possible, or re-live a frightening event before sparring.

Physical exercise CANNOT replicate stress-other than a pounding heart and faster breathing. None of the other associated affects-things slowing down, tunnel vision, auditory exclusion, etc. will occur due to exercise only.
To practice for stress you must induce stress-google it-time constraints, performing in front of others, the "hood" drill, adding noise, differing lighting conditions, etc. can give you what you are looking for.

Having experienced it many times in real life I do not think you can emulate it with training.

However doing ''scray'' things that defy survival instinct such as benji jumps, parashooting or anything similar might give you a good idea but it is still different from a confrontation where somebody is willing and wanting to do you harm

I'm sure there are excercises that make you more prepared of course but there is nothing like the real thing.

Hello:

THe purely physical effects are simple enough to trigger; rapid breating, adrenaline, rapid heart rate, etc. However the tunnel vision, the fear, the mental physiology, the brain chemistry cannot be simulated nearly enough.

What all of us do is called "practice" for a reason. With enough of it you hope to have simulated many difficult things which are very difficult to cope with... but by attempting them, exploring them can be dealt with more effectively

It's "lifetime practice" for excellent reason! We age and things will change, requiring adaptation on our part. To get, and explore your adrenaline response... the invention of Sanchin kata comes to mind ; ) as a wonderful tool to at least ~flip the switches~... start adrenaline coursing through your body.

Make use of bogu-equipement. Getting into the gear to pair off in a bare-knuckle full-contact bout, that'll get your adrenaline running!!

(I'm skipping quiet some steps you will have to take before bogu-kumite however.)

Spar, spar, spar, spar some more, that's the most effective way to get over the adrenaline dump. Of course you should only start sparrign after you have had 2 or 3 months of training just in technique and drills. Best thing to do is grapple out of bad positions most of the time and give yourself fewer "tools" then your opponent in stand up training.
