Standing guard passing the focus of tonights Adults MMA class at The MAC at Haworth
We had a super busy Tuesday night at The MAC at Haworth with thirty members joining us over three classes, Kids MMA, Mixed Stand-up and Adults MMA.
We kicked it off with the kids and after warming them up and running through a number of basic striking combinations we looked at wrist releases from standing and the Americana arm-lock from the mount position. A points based rolling game finished the session.
The adults stand-up class begun with a brief shadow boxing warm-up before moving on to blocking kicks to both the legs and body in various ways. Then it was on to six rounds of padwork and around twelve sparring rounds.
Finally we had the MMA class for the big boys, with the group working their way through a grueling warm-up before visiting the pads. After that the focus was on standing guard passes, from how to pass to either side to a couple of easy entries to the knee split position. The night ended with a little rolling.
A big well done to everyone who attended the centre today including Natasha, Jessica, Paul, Ed, Mark, Richard, Chris, Roxanne, Michael, Matt, Graham, and Chris. A big shout out to our sponsors, The Fleece Inn as well.
See you next time on the mat…
