Consistent Training Is Key
Why do you have trouble performing techniques in competition that you've practiced? Performing under the lights is different than at practice. In practice things work well because there is no pressure. Nobody is reacting and defending your attacks like their life depended on it. When you add pressure to something, if you aren't used to handling performance anxiety, you will fold. If one can do 25% of what is done in practice, he or she is in decent shape. If one can do 50%, then he or she will do very well. Do more than 50%, then you have a top performer or competitor. Only through consistent training can you hope to attain that above 25%. Waiting until the last minute to do anything won't cut it. You have to practice religiously to get any kind of result.
