Famous athletes always find some time to improve their skills, aside from training for other activities. However, you will need to practice and develop the three core aspects. Improving these aspects will help you increase the effectiveness of your skills. These aspects are footwork, reflexes and balance.

Reflexes - There are several approaches that you can take when it comes to improving your reflexes. Slow reflexes can result to a slower muscle response and low situation analysis. If the problem comes out to be based on slow muscle reflexes, you will have to effectively increase the strength of your muscles. Improving your small muscles or snap muscles can greatly aid your on increasing the reflexes of your muscles. Small muscles may not be that strong but these muscles are the one that gives strength to your big muscles to quickly react to the signal given by the brain. If your problem shows to be poor analysis, then I advise you to play mental games. Moreover, you can practice meditation. Meditation routines can certainly help you increase your mental skills.

Footwork - Boxing athletes never forgot to improve their footwork. There are several ways which can aid you on increasing your footwork. One of these training exercises is the rope jogging. It is simple to execute. All you need is to run or walk while jumping into the middle of the rope. Another way is to tie a rope which measures 2 feet into your foot. Just move around while you still have the rope on. Set your goal. Make sure that the rope doesn't get too tight as you move around. These approach can help your synchronize your footwork even during the battle.

Balance - People who study close combat training for the first time often have problem with it comes to balance. Actually, there are various options that you can choose from when it comes to training your balance. One of these options is doing one leg stand. You can perform this training even when you are at home. To support your one leg stand, perform it alternately on each leg every 3 minutes. Actually, it depends on how long you can stand while standing in one leg. Moreover, you can stand using your toes to increase the strength of your training. Attending yoga class is also a great way to help you significantly improve your balance.
