Improve Mental Toughness For MMA or Martial Arts
What does a mentally tough MMA or Judo fighter look like? Do you walk into the ring with confidence, conviction, and the right level of intensity? If not, you can learn how to boost your mental toughness for matches and perform consistently better using your mind! Yes, your mind is your biggest ally, but can also be your biggest enemy. Do you agree with any of these statements?
- I become so frustrated with mistakes that I can’t see straight!
- I feel like I lose confidence when I step into the ring with a strong opponent.
- I become indecisive and get frozen by indecision.
- I want to be able to perform relaxed and confidently–like I do in training.
- I perform tight, cautious, or try to not make mistakes in competition.

“Dr. Cohn, we had a great season. We finished second in the State Tournament. We scored 163 points, which is 11 more than we scored the year we won the state tournament. We had three individual state champs. We really improved our mental preparation in the post season. The kids bought in and really worked at it. We will definitely need you again next year. Hopefully, you can help us reach our goals next year.”*
