You want to call your opponent out. You want to let him know that he is the one that you want to battle. You have to train. It's like Rocky. Remember those when he was, like, drinking the eggs and running down the streets? He wanted to be a champion. You have to train yourself. Train yourself. Train yourself. Train your moves. Train your technique. Make sure you always go down to your foundation and build yourself back up. When you go into a battle make sure you have a great introduction. Make sure you have some great style. Build it up like a roller coaster. Take it for a ride. You want to draw the crowd in. You want to intimidate the opponent but, at the same time you want to be nice and easy. You want to take your time. You want to be patient. You don't want to just spaz out. You don't want to just go all out in the first couple of movements. That's where you lose your stamina. That's where you lose your energy. So, take your time. Be patient. Enjoy it. And, from there, you should win your first round in your battle.
