The timing of this is interesting, the use of Yoga breathing and meditation skills, is one that is gaining in popularity in the US as well. Getting the edge is key, and sports pros of all types have found these skills a great help. If for nothing else, it helps regulate blood pressure, and can be a big help in controlling your pulse as well. Meditation can help lower noise in your head, letting you be more aware of what is going on around you like perhaps something dangerous. Breathing skills can not be promoted enough, as your air intake and exhale decreases so does your strength. Learning to breath well in stressful conditions can give you a huge edge over a bigger stronger opponent. Not to mention you think better, and can see,hear, smell, and feel things easier. As you can see, I am a bit biased about Yoga breathing and meditation skills.
