  • Practice, film study, strength and conditioning. Practice is most important because practice makes perfect and practice allows you to get reps and develop technique while film study helps you learn your opponents and their tendencies. Strength and conditioning is the least important of the three because from my experience practicing and watching film prepares you better for game situations.
