Improving Mental and Physical Ability Through Aggressiveness Exercises

Aggressiveness exercises are a great way to improve our mental and physical abilities. In our next issues we will cover a few of them.


In pairs one partner tries to make their way to the other side of the training ground, while the other tries to prevent them from succeeding. Unlike we did until now, from the front (i.e. facing each other), this time the opposing partner needs to do it from behind.


1. We can grab and pull any parts of the body as long as it is done from behind.

2. It is very important we maintain a play mentality.

3. We can decide to work in time sets, meaning for example, that for 3 minutes, we continue the drill no matter how many times one partner made it to the other side of the room. In general, the amount of sets, their duration and the length of time of each set, should be decided upon according to our abilities and endurance level both mentally and physically. Furthermore, we must make sure we keep changing shoulders in order to avoid working unequally on either side.

4. It is important that we look for the aggressiveness inside the exercise rather than the techniques which can be applied. We shouldn't look to achieve our goal through joint-locks.

5. When we finish the exercise it is very important to stretch our whole body.
