In professional sports mental conditioning has been in the toolbox for top athletes, from Mia Hamm to LaBron James, for decades. It helps these top performers to overcome adversity, control the impact of failure and frustration, and achieve at the highest level. As fighters, we spend a lot of time training our bodies and very little time, if any, training our minds. In this class we will discuss Failure Rituals, mental toughness training, success ideation, and other tools that will help you perform better. These tools are useful in all aspects of your life, so while we’ll be focused on fighting you will find these concepts equally applicable to art projects, school work, and business endeavors.
