Back-mount transitions the big focus of tonights grappling class at The MAC at Haworth
It was a windy and rainy Monday at The MAC at Haworth today, with our usual mix of morning and evening sessions keeping our members flocking through the doors.
The morning began with our striking session, with the group warming up with a few rounds on the Bulgarian bag. The group then filled the rest of the time with a little technical sparring, discussing options as they appear to gain a greater understanding.
The evening kicked off with our Kids MMA class, with most of the group involved in their first grading. We focused on their striking initially, such as the jab, cross and push kicks, before looking at their mount and back-mount controls. A big well done to Richard, Joseph and Harry for passing!
Last up it was our grappling class and pulling guard was the focus on the feet, a technique that’s not always ideal but sometimes necessary. On the ground we looked at the relationship between the mount and back-mount, transitioning between the two positions seamlessly. The hour finished with a little rolling.
A big well done to everyone who attended the centre today including Mark, Tony, Andrea, Ryan, Chris and Jay.
A big shout out to our sponsors, The Fleece Inn as well.
See you next time on the mat…
