Train your defense
Train your fear.
A story about Victoria the kickboxer, who improves her defense and kicks by incorporating the focus shield in her training.
Victoria can practice focus shield drills with her trainer the way boxers train using focus mitts. Every time she kicks on target, she hears a satisfying, loud clap resonate from the shield. The sounds and tactile feel of hitting the target correctly reinforce her confidence. She learns to block and avoid kicks correctly because the tonfa grip helps her learn to use correct form. She and her trainer also can spar more safely wearing the shields.
Victoria's confidence and skills have leveled up tremendously. By training her defense, Victoria has also trained her fears.
