Hi, I'm Karl Romain of Edgewater Kung Fu and Today, I'll be introducing you to Merissa Peco, who'll be teaching you how to build reaction time in martial arts by yourself. Hi, I'm Merissa Peco. I'm a four-time U.S. National Team member, and a 2012 Olympic hopeful. In this video, I'll be showing you how to build your reaction time for martial arts when you're training by yourself. So, a great way to improve your reaction time when you're training by yourself is just to move around and practice your bouncing, your checking, and all of your techniques. You can use any space of any kind, doesn't have to be big. And, you don't need a partner. And so, you're just going to motion work on your different techniques, and pretending like you're sparring. So, you want to visualize an opponent in front of you. And, you could do that 15, 20 minutes a day, and it'll greatly improve your reaction time. Once again, my name is Merissa Peco. I train at Team USA TaeKwon-Do Fitness in Fort Lee, New Jersey, and thank you for joining me. KARL: Thank you, Merissa. I'm Karl Romain of and Edgewater Kung Fu.
