Ok, so you’re training, possibly 2-3 times a day. You’re doing your best, but there’s always room for a bit more success in your life.
So, what can you do to give you that edge, to accelerate the effects of your Taekwondo training and give you more success at the Taekwondo competitions?
Well there is one thing that you need to do that will bring all your training and nutrition together that is a must for any athlete looking for Success.
If you’re not visualising, you are wasting a lot of your Taekwondo Training. While you’re working on the physical aspects of your body, if you’re not tying that in with mental training, it’s like you’re keeping your foot on the brakes while trying to speed up.
Your mind controls your physical body. You need to direct your body to what you want it to do. Visualisation gives your mind the roadmap it needs to send it in the direction you want. For athletes this is usually winning Taekwondo competitions and gold medals.
Visualisation is better than GPS. You give it a direction and your body goes on autopilot to get you where you want to go. As the saying goes, how can you get somewhere when you don’t know where you want to go…?
Visualise what you’re working on at the moment. If you’re working on specific Taekwondo kicking techniques, then visualise them exactly how you want them to be. If it’s kicking attacks, see yourself attacking your opponent easily and successfully.
If you’re doing counter attack kicks, then see your opponent attack you with their kicks and you counter attack easily and successfully every time. It’s as simple as that.
So give your body a direction to go in with Visualisation. You should be doing it at least once a day, if not twice. I recommend first thing in the morning and last thing at night. Give your mind something to work on while you’re asleep, and to help you recuperate quicker, and also during the day to do the things you need to do to get where you want to be.
Let me know what you visualise about and how it helps your training. Let me know below… 🙂
