do as well in combat as they can in practice. That's TOTAL bs. You will be LUCKY if you do HALF as well, really. Most guys can't even do half as well at a MAJOR match as they can in practice. That is, if they are good enough to EXPECT to do well, and know that others expect them to do well, TOO. THEN they feel "match pressure". Some nobody C or D class guy rarely feels match stress, BECAUSE he's nobody.
