Thursday night’s third junior MMA class for Kingham Hill School continued linking boxing techniques with Muay Thai and Wrestling whilst also introducing the class to more active ground-work.
We warmed up with some dynamic stretching and simple shadow boxing exercises – jab/cross, jab/front kick, jab/low round kick, jab/double leg takedown and sit-outs. Then we moved onto the focus mitts. Here we drilled teep/footwork/jab/cross. Next we drilled jab/cross/double-leg takedown. Then we drilled ground ‘n pound in the guard. This was followed by an introduction to submissions and sweeps from the guard which we will cover properly next week.
