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.


This drill also starts with us facing our partner. The aim is to try and touch, with a flat hand, part of the upper body of our opponent (excluding the head), while he tries to touch ours. Of course we should try to touch as much as possible and defend with our hands and body movement against our opponents attacks.


1. It is very important we maintain a play mentality, and remain soft and gentle in our touch, so that the exercise doesn't turn into a fight.

2. We can decide to work in time sets, meaning for example, that for 3 minutes, we continue the drill no matter how many times our partner or us succeed to close the grip. 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.

3. 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, strikes ext…

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

Enjoy the Sweat
