From early in life we all have a personality. Some what different to others and in other ways, we can be very similar. However we are all unique.
Martial Arts always caught Hailey's attention. From a very young age she was fascinated and sold the instant she first laid her eyes on Martial Arts.
A persons mindset will always differ as for Hailey, she explains how she found her focus in Martial Arts.
During her training sessions she is not satisfied with herself, if a door opens and she looks. If someone walked by and she looks or flinchs. This is her kind of focus.
If someone walks past you during a training session and you move out the way to offer them space, you have lost your focus. If someone walks past and you smile, it is the same again you've lost your focus.
In other terms you have been distracted. On class this can lead to mistakes or poor performance.
After Hailey watched many Martial Arts movies. On class she states that she would always imagine herself in a movie and for the most part it was always from a action film or Martial Arts movie.
For example when Hailey performs a round kick. To obtain her balance and focus, she imagines scenes like the lady and the snake from The Karate Kid. If the lady lost her focus during this scene she is dead.
Watch it below
Over many years of training Hailey has mastered focused imagination. This is exactly what she does during training. This makes training some what exciting. As it does not matter where you train as your mind is totally involved and focused on yourself.
So the next time your are trying to train, or the next time you a fulfilling a task. Try focused imagination.
Take your mind away from the boring rows on class. The boring classroom scene, your mind has no limits.

GRAPHICS STUDENT KICKBOXES HER WAY TO WORLD CHAMPION
Friday, 31 January, 2014
Saturday 30th December 2017
On Friday 29th December, Our club got together to celebrate a year of excellence. Rewarding students who have showed real character and great skill.
Unlike most clubs that are associated and run by a male Instructor. This club is unique to the Midlands and stands alone. It really is a female friendly environment through and through.
"I am so adamant in what I do."
This has allowed so many women and girls to walk through the doors and learn Kickboxing. I don't believe it is all just kicks and punches. It is about growing in character and discovering who you are.
A massive well done to my students they truly are amazing!
Work hard. Stay humle!
