There have been a couple of threads (one started by me) about the relative length of fights and how we train. Thought I'd ask if anyone does 30 second, or 1 minute drills as a way to train for the relatively short street fight. I've done punch outs on a heavy bag, punch and kick outs, short intense sparring, as well as some conditioning done in a few second burst manner, mainly running(sprinting,or jogging with fartlek sprinting) plyo jumping, pushups and situps. Sprawls too. Can anyone think of some more burst drills? Do you think they are useful? Some boxers train in three minute rounds (three rounds on the heavy bag, three rounds sparring, three rounds speed bag) to put the three minute round distance in their head. Do you think self defense oriented martial artists can put the accelerated quick time clock in their heads too? Is this useful? Thanks in advance for all replies.
