Descrizione

Fear drains a person of his will to fight; it denies him the ability to mount a sufficient defense. Fear reduces a strong man or woman to inaction. Fear makes us cower in a corner, look for a way out, or stand quietly at the sidelines unable to act. Fear eats our souls, little by little. Fear steals from us our fine motor skills. When we are afraid we can no longer poke an adversary in the eye, apply a joint lock, or coordinate movement for a throw or takedown. The conquest of fear lies in the understanding of fear and in its acceptance. We drill the same techniques over and over in the training hall, we drill thousands of times, we drill with the intent of letting muscle memory take over in a dramatic situation, we drill so that we can respond automatically and don’t have to think. The idea is sound, but the failing element lies in the lack of realistic stress in training. To understand fear, you must introduce uncertainty, chaos, and pain to your training regimen. Not until your body has experienced stress in a semi-realistic way can it relate the techniques you learn to your performance in a real encounter. Formidable Fighter: The Complete Series, a compilation of all 14 books in this series, is available in both electronic and print format.

Gross vs. Fine Motor Skills - Martina Sprague

Debriefing

Preface

The Formidable Fighter Series is a series of booklets for martial artists desiring to learn the concepts that create formidable fighters in the training hall, competition arena, and street. Each booklet is between 5,000 and 10,000 words in length and includes fighting scenarios, training tips, and illustrations. Gross vs. Fine Motor Skills, the twelfth booklet in the series, deals particularly with how to manage the stress of combat on the street when your life or safety are seriously threatened. Since the advice is not style specific but explores the underlying concepts of personal combat, it is applicable to students of most martial styles.

Gross motor skills are not pretty, they are not smooth and graceful, but they do enable you to save your life right now. On the field of battle, you command the fight by force, not finesse. If you follow the instruction and tips in the Formidable Fighter Series, you will learn how to develop your physical strength and mental tenacity and triumph as a fighter in the training hall, ring, and street.

Anxiety is a thin stream of fear trickling through the mind. If encouraged, it cuts a channel into which all other thoughts are drained.

—Arthur Somers Roche, 1883-1935, Book Author and Screenwriter

The conquest of fear lies in the moment of its acceptance.

There can be no knowledge without emotion. We may be aware of a truth, yet until we have felt its force, it is not ours. To the cognition of the brain must be added the experience of the soul.

—Arnold Bennett, 1867-1931, British Novelist, Playwright, and Critic
