A massive weapon often overlooked by so many. Four ways to land it:

  1. throw it straight up as an instant counter to your opponents technique such as kicking under the right cross (of an orthodox fighters)
  2. The switch kick. Use a punch combination to get your opponent hands high to expose the ribs and liver.
  3. Step through and kick. Drive your opponent back by throwing a simple hard punch combination so he/she covers and moves, for example cross, hook, cross, step through on the last cross to put you in southpaw stance to throw the left kick
  4. Moving back under pressure. as your opponent moves in step back and kick

There are endless scenarios depending on who does what but the four setups above are popular.

This weekends success!

Lloyd Elliott

This weekend the team competed in both MMA and BJJ.

First up on Saturday we visited Telford for Cage Conquest 2.  Tom Godber, Lloyd Elliot and Greg Summers (who also trains at the Cheltenham club have been preparing for their bouts these last few months.

Tom Godber Vs Kieran Durrance was a strong display of grappling with a quick takedown and several scrambles.   Godber was able to ride the storm and was eventually able to secure the win in the 1st round with a straight foot lock submission. Read more

Been getting a lot of questions about the right foods, what to eat, when to eat for good energy, for weigh loss for recovery etc, so thought I’d collate some great video’s from my friend over at The Bending Barbell online training team member Rob Nitman.

These are just short clips, but they give you a great introduction to Protein, Carbs and Fats. Read more

Goal Setting… not just a New Years resolution

goalsetting

No doubt that you’ll have all made some attempt to set some kind of “new years resolution” in the hope you might stick to it… but unless you have some structure behind those goals they’ll most likely fall by the wayside and be a distant memory by mid February! In this post I hope to give you some insight in how to set goals for yourself using some tried and tested techniques.

Goal setting is mental training as it is anything else, and will help increase your ability to stick at it and actually achieve the asperations you’ve set out for yourself. Simply saying that “you’ll do better” or “I’ll try and be more committed to training” isn’t an effective way to set goals or prepare you mental for the task in hand. It would be far more beneficial to say that “I’m going to commit to every Monday, Wednesday & Saturday” and then actually schedule your day/week towards achieving this.  Read more

Muay thai boxing is an actual art. It’s a way of learning how to attack and defend in a form of a dance making it slightly more sophisticated than other martial arts. It’s a way of being able to express myself using the correct technique and learning when to strike and when to defend. Read more
