After an injury, motivation can be in VERY short supply…

And when you’ve had an elite Muay Thai fight career as long as Liam Harrison, and a fight style like he has, injuries WILL come.

Motivation comes from discipline – both in training and in the fight itself. Arguably, the discipline built during training is all you can exhibit during the fight. It starts and ends with your training…

Every session, injured or not, is an opportunity to build trust in your ability to perform.

Working around an injury is important. Going through it usually costs you in the long run.

Your psychological mindset needs training as much as your physiological body.

Big tests come from injuries. And big lessons come from big tests. Do you trust you can come back? After an injury, are you prepared to work to come back?

Learn the lessons from some of Liam Harrison’s big tests.
