A well-rounded fighter should be technically prepared to force his actions on the opponent, to react swiftly and chooce a technique that would earn him a win. This is what we call a counter. This is what we will speak about in this article. A counter is a planned transition from defense to offense, to success. This task may be difficult, and rely on our skill levels. A sparring partner can be of greatest help, when working on our technical side. An experienced partner can create oppurtunities to test out our ideas, and increase the difficulty of circumstances along witk our progress. In time, the conditions may get to the point where it fees like an actual bout at the table. In this way, by getting acquainted with the counter, a fighter can learn the elementals of armwrestling. Many attention should be sacrificed to technique, especially in order to work our key techniques, our “trademarks”. Trademarks vary and depend on our focus and time of training. They need to be worked on at least twice a week, without ignoring constant development of other aspects. Not adhering to these habits may have a negative outcome for a foghter. In training counter, the fighter should pay tme most attention to learning how to fight out of every position.
