Hi, my name is Leif Becker, and today I'm going to talk about how to win a Martial Arts tournament. Winning a Martial Arts tournament is all about proper preparation, really preparing your own personal strengths as well as being there the performance level for ultimate success. Winning a Martial Arts tournament is all about the mindset and it begins right there. Each and everyday that you're out on the training floor taking your classes, you want to be thinking about how you can take your game to the next level. It's all about that proper preparation; practice, practice, practice. Practicing your punches, your kicks, your blocks to determine how exactly they're going to take on that tournament floor. The second thing is to make sure that you maximize your strengths. What's your best kick? What's your best punch? How you're going to utilize them in the ring during that time in which you're sparring? And finally, you want to ensure that you're performance level that day. What you're mindset at? Are you there to achieve the success that you're looking for? Are you bringing it all to the table that day? Are you giving it all that you have? Leading up to that particular day of the tournament, your mind needs to be completely focused on what you look to achieve. And remember to remain relaxed the day of the tournament, not to become overwhelm with all the things taking place around you, from the rings that are going on to the competitors that are coming in, be in the zone, remain relaxed and you'll be successful.
