Street-fight sparring and triangle chokes no the menu at The MAC this Monday
We had a sweltering Monday at The MAC at Haworth today with our regular program of morning and evening classes going on despite the massive heat.
The morning session began with the regular Bulgarian bag warm-up before switching it up with a little light rolling (grappling sparring). Taking things on a stage further we moved on to “street-fight sparring”, allowing for unexpected strikes from the top and bottom positions to be thrown as we “keep it real”.
The evening Kids MMA class began with the animal based warm-up before taking them on the pads to improve their basic knowledge of striking. The focus then changed to grappling and our new guard passing drill before mixing it in with the game the group knows well.
The last class of the day was our grappling class and after looking at how to deal with a super aggressive opponent on the feet, we looked at a couple of ways to apply the triangle choke including a driving opponent. The session finished with a little light rolling.
A big well done to everyone who attended the centre today including Adam, Roxanne, Mark, Ewa, Ryan, Ben and Chris.
A big shout out to our sponsors, The Fleece Inn as well.
See you next time on the mat…
