Both beginners and well-trained combat athletes know that speed, agility and quick reaction times can make the difference between a well-crafted slip and a knockout. Consistent training is the first step toward solidifying neuromotor responses that eventually become second nature during competition and training. Strategic use of caffeine is a safe and effective way to enhance those responses and boost endurance capabilities.
