My client began his second MMA course via Zoom live training. We spent the first half of the lesson looking at heavy bag work on the ground, mainly focusing on drilling techniques from underneath. The last half of the lesson consisted of 3 x 5 minute rounds and one tabata of MMA shadow sparring.
We began with a warm-up of movement drills on the grounded heavy bag. This consisted of shoulder rolling from side to side, knee pin transitioning, jump overs, hip surfing and pin transitioning.
Next, we looked at the first drill from the bottom position. Here we began with guillotines chokes from the guard. This was with using the butterfly guard to take the back and finishing with striking from the back-mount and a rear naked choke. We then put these two drills together, using strikes throughout. We then moved onto the scissor sweep.
Round one of MMA shadow sparring consisted of Western Boxing and Muay Thai as separate and combined arts. We began with instructional training, but later switched to visualisation. Round two built in a lot of clinch/wrestling with a similar structure. Round three added in ground-work. The tabata was divided up into eight individual bursts of single techniques from all ranges.
