Chapter 2. – Understanding and developing confidence for winning
In the second chapter of The Brain and Combat: Brain Science in Grappling Competitions, we'll learn that confidence is a 'proof of doing' and should not be mistaken with positive self-talk or arrogance. We got to know the multi-layered system of the brain and how it operates during the process of building confidence. We went through the blockers of developing or manifesting confidence. We also got closer to understanding the impact of the different mental conditions on tournament performance and where and how to mediate to reach improvement.
