Target training

Target training is an essential part of your martial arts training; it helps you with speed, accuracy and correcting technique. In order to get the full benefit of target training use your regular gloves and protective kicks are optional; stick to all techniques that you use in your class and use them in sets of combinations. For optimal results, set up each round with a minute count, for example a 2 min round with a 30 second rest period, this way you can start at a certain number and then work your way up, a good way to monitor progress.

When hitting the target, aim to hit the center of the target and strive to snap back all of your techniques in combinations so that you can deliver them with lots of speed. Do short spurts of super fast, basic techniques, for example, jab/punch as fast as you can for 30 seconds

If you are correcting technique or working on accuracy of aiming, make sure to keep combos very simple, single techniques are often better. Watch for correct striking area of hand or kick landing in center of target. Remember, by practicing on targets and incorporating it as a regular part of your martial arts training, you will become a more controlled and powerful Martial Artist.
