When it comes to training, I have no problem getting hit. I plan on competing this year, but until then I don't know how I'll do with my nerves in the cage. I am pretty relaxed, confident and mentally prepared, so I believe I'll be relatively cool on the nerves. But when it comes to confrontation outside of the cage, that's when I get nervous.

Yeah, the dream was always very vivid, and I can feel what it was like to have the punch of a feather. My punch would be fast, but as soon as it got to their face, it's like their face had a force field or something and it would never really connect. It's like when you try to put two of the same poles of a magnet together, they repel each other.

Thats like how mine was, except I also sorta of couldn't reach the guy sometimes. Funny thing was it was a guy who I had already been in a fight with in school.

LOL that good to know I am not the only one that has those crazy dreams! I would put everything I had in the punch, but it was like slow mo! Hate those dreams lol...As for the nerves, the more I spare the better it gets. i think I have just been learning how to breath and "channel" that nervous feeling alittle better each time. Good luck bro

I had dreams like that too bro! I used to have dreams where im running from something and id be running in slo mo. But usually if i fight in a dream I would smash people, but lately since i've been training for mma in my dreams I always get tapped out by a chinese guy in a gi. Its different but I get the same feeling of hopelessness or despair. Dreams are wierd

Alot of people think that I am too docile or something but alot of times it is b/c I am a nice guy and/or I don't want to hit somebody and lose my job. I never really had a fear of fighting more of a fear of losing my job, assault charges etc.

One thing fear is a good thing if you use it the right way...fight or flight.

Ummm... maybe it's just me, but those sound like exactly the same thing.

The truth is, if you're talking about conquering a fear of fighting, the only way is to go out and do it.

My dad has a fear of heights, and to help him get over that (which he hasn't done entirely, but he's getting there), my little brother and I took him bungie jumping. (we've talked about doing some skydiving with him and his girlfriend as sort of a surprise thing for one of his birthdays)

It's just about doing it.
