Cerebral Fighter
Not sure if this is the right section for this thread but I guess its considered training.
So I've been doing mma for a while now and I've noticed one of my friends when he fights its like he's a whole different person. He's the nicest person I know but when he puts the gloves on and the fight starts he's so aggresive and its like he blocks everything out and hits don't phase him. Its actually kinda scary to spar with him because its like he gets stronger when he gets hit. I asked him about it and he doesn't even realize it happens, I was wondering if there is a way to attain this mindset through training or if it just comes with experience or if you have it or you don't?

That is mostly natural its fight or flight...When you get hit have to respond and he responds with getting mad lol....Btw Devil how long you been at the stumps?

11 long years out here. Well I've been doing research on this and there's all sorts of different things people are saying. Some say you gotta overcome your fears and it has to do with your mind associating a punch with pain. I'm just gonna keep it in my mind when I'm sparring and I agree its pretty much fight or flight, either you get in or get out.

Are you station there or living? lol I really hope your stationed ...I was there 7 months at Mojave Viper.....And I think with the punches your right also ...I dont know Ive seen people look dead in the ring until they get hit and they snap to life and start throwing bombs

sad to admit but some fighters out there are scared to get hit, and some of them never grows out of it, some people are made for scrapbooking and not fighting. When you are a fighter you have to accept the fact that you hit and you get hit, part of the game. Once you accept the fact that you will get hit and you deal with it well, than you will never fight the same way.

Living, parents moved out here when I started school been out here ever since. They're both military. I'm going to school out here and plan on moving when I finish. Not much to offer in terms of mma out here though.

Its been so long since I been out there I think its what an hour? Im sure the Marines have something going on up there too

Yeah but its a hard drive. But there's a place in town that I go to its got a little mma class and karate classes. There also another dojo but they're more kata focused. And there's a mma fight club on the marine base now but its lacking in skilled fighters and its not that great of an enviroment to train in.
