Chapter 3 Overview – At the grappling competition – changes in the brain and the body


In the third chapter of The Brain and Combat: Brain Science in Grappling Competitions, we will look closely at the events happening in the brain during a grappling competition, from evaluating the opponent to dealing with the result. You will have a clear picture of how observations, personal history and mental design drive the stress response to a certain direction. We go through the exact changes in the body induced by the different stress levels and their impact on your tournament performance. With the help of a couple of real-life examples, we also see how the different personality cards play together to form the final outcome of a fight.
