Jake Norwood is a founder of CKDF and Longpoint. He occasionally runs a combat stress class at various events he attends. This class is designed to help fighters get more comfortable in a stressful situation, like competition, or a fight. We got a chance to talk about what you can do on your own, or in your own group, to get used to fighting at high intensity.
