Kids MMA gradings the focus of our Sunday morning at The MAC at Haworth today
It was a busy Sunday morning at The MAC at Haworth today as we rattled off our usual three classes, with the Kids MMA class focusing on the first round of gradings.
The morning began with our hour pads session, giving our members a chance to blow off a little steam and punch, kick, knee and elbow the focus pads as a result. The final fifteen minutes was reserved for a little stand-up sparring.
Next up was our grappling class, with the group today looking at three variations of arm-locks from side control including one that uses the shoulder to immobilise our opponents hips. The session ended with a little playful rolling.
Last up was the little ones and with a few away on holiday or busy at parties, it was a good chance to get half the group graded, some for the very first time. Not only did they have to demonstrate a basic knowledge of striking, but their mount and back mount controls were put to the test.
A big well done to everyone who attended the centre over the course of the day including Adam, Roxanne, Ryan, Mark, Jay, Paul, Ed and Georgina.
A big shout out to our sponsors, The Fleece Inn as well.
See you next time on the mat…
