Slave to the Rhythm? I hope not

I made a blog post explaining how rhythm works in striking competition, and how important it is to NOT be a Slave to the Rhythm.

Check Out the Full Blog Post!

Here is a tease:
What makes a master musician and or dancer is the ability to anticipate when and where the next beat will hit and act on it. That’s also were fighting comes in.

A rhythmically sound fighter looks like he is dancing in the ring/cage, he is very light on his feet and all his strikes flows together in a very technical way.
The goal of a fighter is to read your opponents movement patterns and try to work against it, but at the same time be off-beat yourself so the other guy can’t read and time your rhythm.
You should be a BAD dance partner.
