Meditation Techniques Help UFC Champions
Light-heavyweight champion Jon (Bones) Jones likes to meditate before each fight and says he knows just the place in Toronto for UFC 140 next week.
Or at least coach Greg Jackson does.
“He has a lot of friends in Toronto, Canada, and they’ve already found a beautiful place for us to find our serenity before I fight,” Jones told a media conference call Thursday.
The UFC is putting a mini-van at their disposal to get there.
The 24-year-old Jones defends his 205-pound mixed martial arts title against former champion Lyoto (The Dragon) Machida at the Air Canada Centre on Dec. 10.
Jones’ penchant for pre-fight meditation came out before he won the title at UFC 128 in Newark, N.J., in March. Original story here
For centuries, warriors and fighters have trained their minds as much as they trained their bodies and their fighting skills.
Fighting from a calm, centered, mindful place gives any warrior an advantage.
What do you think? Do meditation techniques help UCF Champions get ready to fight better?
I am in favour of meditation, even when it’s used to make a fighter more powerful, more dangerous, and more likely to win.
