what are the similarities that I gathered from this video to produce a champion.

2 hour of training 5 times a week for a total 12 hours a week.

parents coaching kids, then taking them to best trainers in world.

wanna be the best gotta put the time,

the kickboxing trainer who was torturing his students which is boarder line child abuse, we have seen our share or nutty parents/trainers in tennis.

And finally,,,,,,,fighters are born not made, are tennis players born to become champions or are they made?
PT630,
Thanks for posting. Yes, all top athletes must put in a lot of hard work, talent only is not enough. Same in tennis, boxing, MMA or else.
Regarding your comment "fighters are born not made", I am not sure you are correct... have you heard of the super star MMA fighter Georges Saint-Pierre or GSP? I heard him say in an interview that he was a small, shy kid growing up and he was constantly being bullied around by other kids in school. He wasn't a fighter, he's rather flee or not respond. In fact because of this experience in his childhood, he started to practice martial arts. He is one of the smartest and most hard working athletes too. Now, he has become one of the most feared fighters in the UFC!
