Re: Exercises to keep breathing?

Its rather usual when people copncentrate or try too hard that they tend to hold their breath. One way to train/condition/habituate this out is to go back to basics and incorporate breathing into the technique. Breathe in as you enter and blend, out when you execute. With time the breathing pattern just becomes part of the technqiue and adds a great deal to it. You may just be dealing with a stress response as well as some general cardio conditioning.
