My client began her third hour in Mixed Martial Arts training. This is her second live video link tutorial. We went back over details for the double-leg takedown, the sprawl and two break-falls. We also continued ground work positions and focused a lot on chaining and transitioning techniques.
We warmed up through the usual callisthenics and dynamic stretching exercises. Then I began technical work with the simple high and low jab. The low jab involves changing levels as if wrestling. From changing levels I introduced the double-leg takedown. We went through details from last lesson, addressing posture, the depth of the level change and driving forward. Then we combined the jab with the double-leg takedown. Finally, we trained jab/cross/double-leg takedown.
The sprawl was covered next and trained all three variations. This was then combined with jab/cross and I added on a spear knee at the end making it a fully rounded MMA combination with a clear tactical purpose.
Break-falls were next on the agenda and we added on forward rolls to the front break-fall and backward rolls on the back break-fall. We then moved onto the ground where we trained side-control transitioning into scarf-hold. Going underneath, we covered both the upa (bridge) escape and the snake/shrimp (hip escape).
