How do you overcoming the fear/apprehension?
I know there will be the flamers with the standard pu$$y comments but whatever.
Most people don't like to get punched or get into a fight, some people do, I guess. But for those that don't and are into MMA how do you overcome that feeling, be it practice or the actual fight?
I'm asking because I want to try the sport more to learn the self defense and gain the confidence. Not to just start fights but to be prepared if they happen.
