Tuesday night’s first session saw the merge of my Junior and Senior private lessons for some extra work on developing Mixed Martial Arts combinations. After a thorough warm-up of specific training exercises on all the rangs of MMA, we began the first of a series of eight combinations. I also used the opportunity to coach better pad-holding. The combinations were.
1. Jab/tap inside leg/rear overhand/double-leg takedown
2. Jab/cross to the lead leg/lead hook/double-leg takedown
We then completed 6 x 2 minute rounds of MMA sparring, which upped the intensity and prompted more risk-taking with techniques, and finished with some static flow stretching.
