All the case studies were really interesting to read. IT was great to see that the indian shooters wanted to improve at any cost and were willing to take risks and different strategies to achieve their goals, while in Japan the government provided a holistic approach for their Judo athletes which helped their athletes really embrace Judo as a cultural right.
Both these sports require immense focus and the ability to pick strategic moments to assert yourself. Being able to maintain and control one’s emotions is an inherent need in these sports because the level of concentration is so high, that anything can disrupt the fine balance that is required for some of these athletes to be in the state of optimal arousal.
