Extreme Training For Advanced Students

I'm not a big believer in warm-up routines in the dojo. On the street, you won't have time to stretch or do jumping jacks when some thug is trying to boost your wallet. Performing basics are another waste of time, and won't put you outside of your comfort zone. Here's a short list of reality-based practices you can try out to test your mettle. They won't enhance your technical fighting skill, but you may permanently lose certain bodily functions or your life. I must warn you, these are specifically designed for practitioners with at least three years of dedicated, hardcore training, so proceed with caution.

Fire Walking

This will develop your ability to deal with fear. And extremely high temperatures. Drink plenty of water before attempting this one.

Iron Crotch Kung Fu

Muay Thai fighters wear steel groin guards in their matches. The cheap ones start at 20 USD. But with the Iron Crotch regimen, you can save your money for better things, like pain killers.

Sub-Zero Workouts

Becoming one with nature is essential for any aspiring martial artist. This is a great way to cool down after your fire walking routine.

Good luck and have fun!
