I often hear from my law enforcement friends that their training focuses mainly on their gross motor skills. For those of you who aren’t familiar with this term, it’s the movements of the large muscles of the body (i.e., punching, kicking, angle 1, etc…). This is mainly due to two reasons. Gross motor skills are easier to learn and retain. When your heart rate is elevated, it’s harder to pull off some of the fine motor skills (disarms, trapping, etc…). I see a lot of this during sparring sessions. My question is this. Is it possible to thru training and repetition to convert a fine motor skill into a gross motor skill? If so, can anyone suggest any good drills? Thanks.
