“Perfection Sparring” | Pre-Fight Flow Tactics, Strategies and Drills

Perfecting the Flow State Before Fighting.
Perfection Sparring for the Mind and Body.

Fight week is a critical time period. You want to stay sharp, focused, and in top physical shape, but you also have to leave time for your body to recover in order to compete in peak form.

Here is a pre fight ritual Namsaknoi [One of the greatest fighters and trainers of all time] uses as a tactic to keep his fighters sharp, stimulated, confident; all without the high risk of injury or over training  just days before the fight. Some need this type of training to calm their nerves or their need to move, some need it to stick to the game plan.

To me it is something that puts me in a “flow state” right before the fight. This combination of sparring, drilling and coaching is stimulating enough to keep you sharp and focused, but not overwhelming to the point of breaking down your confidence or giving you too much all at once [especially right before a night that already holds its own sources of pressure].

Namsaknoi enables me to flow my techniques and combinations, but if he feels that there is an opening he will quickly make me aware with a counter. If it’s something that needs an extra bit of work or tightening up, he will drill it with me, but quickly break that rhythm once again when he is pleased with my adjustments. We do this twice in one day, two days before each fight:

  1. Hey nice article. I am practicing muaythai in Chiangmai and thai sparring goes really soft. They believe not to injure each other on sparring training. I guess they fight matches much more than compared to western boxers.

    1. I will be in Chiang my in just a few days!

      Yes, the Thai style of sparring ensures that you take little damage in training, but still prepare for the fight in the most efficient way possible. When you fight as often as they do, it’s intelligent to save the brain cells for when you get paid.
