Timing in the Fighting Arts: Psych Out Your Opponent and Connect At the Right Moment

Feinting is a skilled art, one that causes your opponents to be fooled by a false move and hit by another. From the ancient battlefields, to the competitions of today, feinting is a powerful weapon of deception that keeps the fight in your favor. If you can trick your opponent every time, they’ll never know where the next hit is coming from.

Yet too many fighters fail to pull it off successfully… and have the bruises to prove it.

In Timing in the Fighting Arts, authors Loren W. Christensen and Wim Demeere teach you the art of feinting, as well as other timing techniques that make you more powerful, more effective and more accurate.

Learn to get every ounce of speed and power from your techniques as you become lightening fast and hammer your opponent into submission. Whether for the street or the ring, correct timing is crucial for getting the most out of your skills. Develop feinting skills that incorporate more body movement and even facial expressions to make them react just as you want them to.
