The Formidable Fighter Series is a series of booklets for martial artists desiring to learn the concepts that create formidable fighters in the training hall, competition arena, and street. Each booklet is between 5,000 and 10,000 words in length and includes fighting scenarios, training tips, and illustrations. Hard Hitting, Strong Gripping, the third booklet in the series, is approximately 80 pages long and deals particularly with how to develop power in your strikes and strength in your grip. Since the advice is not style specific but explores the underlying concepts of personal combat, it is applicable to students of most martial styles.
Hard Hitting, Strong Gripping includes discussions and exercises applicable to stand-up and ground fighting, and training with a variety of impact devices as well as partners who are bigger and stronger than you. It also explores mental issues, such as how to choose a martial art that is appropriate for you, how to put intent and intensity into your training regimen, and how to make good use of visualization exercises.
Powerful punches and grips are the product of proper training and conditioning. Power also relates directly to speed and timing. Weak efforts, however, lead to half-hearted strikes and stagnation. If you follow the instruction and tips in the Formidable Fighter Series, you will learn how to develop your physical strength and mental tenacity and triumph as a fighter in the training hall, ring, and street.
Formidable Fighter: The Complete Series, a compilation of all previously published electronic books in this series, is now available to a great reduction in price in both electronic and print format. The book is a variation of the previously published book (now out of print), Combat Fitness for the Elite Female Martial Artist, also by Martina Sprague, revised to be particularly suitable also for the male student.
