Training for Partner Dummy Kicking

Benefits:

Improve speed and reaction time by cooperating with partner

 

Method of checking speed and reaction times:

If the dummy leans toward you – opposite from your kicking force — then your speed and reaction time are slower than your partner’s.

 

Method of improving speed and reaction time:

Speed and reaction time are not only the result of physical conditioning; it is possible to improve through your mindset. It is a similar situation when sparring: your eyes can see when your opponent is about to kick – you must use this split second moment to beat your opponent’s timing by countering with an faster kicking that will beat your partner’s speed, even if your counter-kick started after your opponent’s.

Such reaction time is only possible with an alert and clear mindset.

 

If the trainee is able to apply this mindset on Partner Dummy Kicking Training, he or she will find improvement in both speed and reaction time, which will translate into better sparring skills.
