Handling Critical Moments
To avoid choking when the pressure is on, you must learn to be mentally prepared to perform at your best, with your mind remaining sharply focused and free from distraction. Learn what it means to "lean" into your match, without thoughts and worries getting in your way. Mental training is designed to help you, especially during critical moments, so that pressure enhances your performance, rather than detracts from it. Critical moments during competition will test your mental toughness more than at any other time.
