There is a huge difference between "confidence" and "over confidence".
Confidence is brought upon by good solid training, the kind you can rely upon working for you because you have proven to yourself it's effectiveness. Competence breeds confidence.
Over confidence is usually brought upon by poor quality training, the kind that let's you get away with poor techniques, or never let you break a sweat (physically or emotionally). It is also brought upon by the "couch training method". You know the kind where you either sit on the couch and watch people on TV doing something awesome and you think you'll be able to copycat them in time of need without ever practicing it, or when you see some unrealistic techniques and you start using them during a poor quality training session Either way, it might get you killed
Be smart, stay safe!!!!
