MMA Stand-up & Clinch (diary entry)

Friday saw my two clients return for the fourth hour of their MMA course. With such a layoff between sessions, I thought it was appropriate to do a line-work revision on stand-up before we looked at the clinch and a takedown.

The line-work was built out of the warm-up. After some simple loosening up and muscle activation exercises, we went through punching exercises to work the four basic techniques of boxing, followed by elbows, knees and kicks from Muay Thai. I then partnered them off for some over-hook/under-hook pummelling. From here we drilled blending straight punches into clinching entries. The lesson finished side break falls and the waist-lock takedown.
