Practically a full house for grappling and MMA tonight at The MAC at Haworth
We had a busy Thursday night at The MAC at Haworth this evening with our trio of classes bringing almost a record number of people through our doors over a three and a half hour period.
The Kids MMA class kicked off the night in style with the group brushing up on their padwork and self defence techniques, the latter in the form of wrist releases and standing in base. We added to the mix engaging our opponent in the clinch, a powerful weapon which will come into it’s own in future weeks.
The grappling class was next up and the high turn-out was in for a treat as we looked at guillotine chokes from standing, as well as straight arm-locks from the mount. The busy class was treated to a little light rolling to end, with a few of the MMA guys joining in.
The MMA class swung into action at 7.30pm with a shorter than normal warm up before getting straight into our wrestling drill, a big focus of things this week. The technical portion of the class focused on mount escapes, this week looking to trap the arm and leg on one side before rolling them.
A big well done to everyone who attended the centre today including David, Adam, Chris, Michelle, Paul, Ed, Georgina, Heidi, Paul, Richard, Matt, Graham, Chris, Olly, Joe and Ben.
A big shout out to our sponsors, The Fleece Inn as well.
See you next time on the mat…
