Mirror Drill - Martial Arts Agility Training

This page provides details for the "Mirror Drill" which is a technique used to improve their martial arts agility. Agility training allows martial arts students to change positions rapidly and effectively. This enables martial artists to evade an attack or get open to launch an attack (i.e. moving laterally in order to avoid an opponent's blow and thus being able to quickly launch an effective counter attack against an off-balance opponent).

For more agility drills, please visit the main Martial Arts Physical Fitness section.

Technique Instructions

  • Get a partner and have them move in different directions within a specified area.
  • You will have to face your partner and try to copy their movements (i.e. you are their reflection in a mirror).
  • Your partner should try to "beat" you (where they try to cause you to fail in your mirroring attempt) by throwing in fake side movements, stutter steps, etc.
