It is easy to be discouraged when you face adversity in a fight, but those moments can define who you are for the better. Martial Arts is and will always be a mental game above everything else and if that mentality is broken, then so is your confidence. There are fighters that will go into a fight with no game plan or rely on one thing that they’re good at to win them the fight, but will find out that sometimes it won’t go their way and that is where true strategy comes into place. Some of the biggest game changers in a fight actually come from the corners and in between rounds as you are now in a position to see what went wrong and make the proper adjustments in the next round(s). Afterwards there is less discouragement because you can now see from the eyes of the ones cornering you and in the process will also restore your confidence. Floyd Mayweather is a master at taking advice from his corner and making the proper adjustments to fight a different style every round to keep his opponents guessing. Never completely abandon your skill set and fight reckless just because of a few hiccups. Believe in yourself and believe in the system you train under.
