comment Is weight training useful in martial arts?
Weight training can focus on strength or size, or both. Heck even endurance. All depends on the weight used and the scheme (reps and sets).

comment How do I increase my wrist strength for punching?
I'll vouch for this. My girlfriend, who does Krav, told me her wrist hurts whenever she tosses a hook punch. First punch I could see her from for the punch was off. Couple of quick tips and no more pain when tossing a hook.

comment How can I practice shooting for a combat situation?
I don't see circuit training being of much use when trying to do combat simulations, unless your work/conditions require that you be able to operate from a fatigued state.

being "great" is a very subjective term and lots of it depends on the programming being done at the affiliate level.

Elevate heart rate is only "somewhat" like a combat simulation. No adrenaline dump, no tunnel vision, no hearing lose, no one attacking you, etc. I know about the "crossshot" stuff out there, personally I find it more humorous then useful. YMMV
