Using video and photo in you Martial Arts training

A picture is worth a thousand words.

Most of us don’t live in a home which has a built-in studio with a wall to wall mirror. Even if we did, mirrors are only good as long as you’re looking in them. Many forms will always have some portion where you may not look directly forward. For instance a downward strike, you’d want to look where you’re striking.

A great way to improve, especially when you’re practicing alone, is to video tape your form or movement in order to watch yourself and improve. Videotaping ones performance is done a lot when one is working on competitions and perfecting how you perform. But even in a more intimate and personal setting, videotaping is a great way to be critiqued in a safe environment. After all, we are often our hardest critiques

Knowledge is power. And using technology like video and camera allows you to know how you’re performing and improve.

Good luck and train hard!
