Speed is the most important asset a fighter can have. You can be strong, tough and skilled, but if your strikes and blocks aren’t fast enough in a fight, you can still lose. While some people are blessed with natural quickness, others have to work hard for just a little increase in speed.
Based on his best-selling book Speed Training, this Paladin video production distills author Loren Christensen’s 40 years of experience as a martial artist into a comprehensive training program that will not only increase your fighting speed but also enhance the appearance of quickness, keeping your opponent off-guard and making him think you’re much faster than you actually are.
He teaches you how to “cheat” speed by improving your timing and accuracy in both punching and kicking through a series of dirty tricks that will have your opponent wondering just what hit him. From there, he shows you drills, exercises and principles that will increase your natural fighting speed and help you develop not only instantaneous reflexes but also explosive quickness and power in all your strikes.
