I know everybody said drill, drill, drill and Josh touched on the issue of responding under pressure but I'm not sure the point was made that practicing the movements slowly will help rewire your response. I do a lot of pad work and every time I slip into sloppy habits, my instructor slows everything down and forces me to complete each rep cleanly to reinforce the movement pattern. As it becomes more dialed in, he speeds up the work again and I respond with greater mindfulness.
