Linear Range Training Scars

You’ve probably heard the saying before, “Train the way you want to fight because you’ll fight the way you trained.” This is wisdom that you can take to the bank.  When your stress level gets so high that your mid-brain takes over control from your frontal lobe, you lose most of your critical thinking ability.
