There you go. You have to train specifically. That's the most important thing. Anything that gets in the way of that is going to become a detriment.
The above all sounds good. Also, I would recommend to lift explosively. More than usual. You can also look for ways to incorporate speed and power training into more specific martial arts type training.
But training for the actual events has got to be the most important thing.
