Kids rolling, blackouts, catching kicks and escaping rear-naked chokes tonight at The MAC

We had a very energy fueled night this evening at The MAC at Haworth, with Kids MMA, Mixed stand-up and Adult MMA classes taking precedence.

First up was the turn of the little ones as we continued to add to their striking repertoire as well as looking at how to control someone from side mount. Finally we did a bit of rolling, giving them focus as they looked to either obtain the mount or guard positions.

Next up was our stand-up class, a class that ensures we keep one eye on people trying to take us down or even taking our opponents down when strikes are involved. Tonight we looked at various ways of dealing with kicks, deflecting, blocking and even catching them in the process.

Lastly was the turn of the adults for the MMA class, with all nine Tuesday night members on hand for the first time. This time around we looked at some simple yet highly effective ways to escape the rear-naked choke, before finishing off with a number of rolling rounds.

A big well done to everyone who turned up including Mark, Matthew, Cat, Michelle, Kira, Matt, Graham, Owen, Dwight, Chris and Jonny.

See you next time on the mat…


A night full of sparring as the kids MMA, mixed stand-up and adults MMA all take to the mat

The doors were wide open at The MAC at Haworth tonight as we welcomed in a plethora of members onto the mats for our triple lesson line-up.

First up we had the little ones in for the Kids MMA class, with the group working on a couple of new punches before looking to polish even further the five games they were graded on last week. This week was also their first chance to spar on the mat, using our point scoring rolling game.

Next up was the turn of our stand-up class, this week focusing on lead hooks and rear uppercuts, before getting in a few quick rounds on the pads. We finished the session off with a few rounds of boxing sparring as we continue to hone our skills.

Last but by no means least was the turn of the Adult MMA class, with the group looking specifically at how to defend punches from the guard position. This was after a number of rounds of padwork had been carried out and some much needed backward rolls. The session ended with five rounds of rolling.

A big well done to everyone who attended the classes with special mentions going to Michelle, Cat, Matthew, Kira, Matt, Graham, Chris and Dwight. Also a big well done to Chris who popped over for a private earlier in the day.

Knee-split passes from the guard provides yet more breakthrough for Haworth MAC students

We were back to normal tonight at the Fusion Martial Arts Centre at Haworth following a busy weekend which included our Halloween Spooktacular fundraiser, putting on a trio of engaging classes for our members.

First up was the turn of the kids as we looked at controlling the mount position even when someone rolls like crazy, as well as putting them through their paces with our first sparring drills.

Next was the mixed stand-up class, blending boxing, kickboxing and muay-thai techniques and wrapping them up with an MMA ribbon. This week we introduced the back-fist for the first time, pairing it with an oblique kick and side kick to stop our opponent in their tracks before re-establishing distance.

Last up was the turn of the adults MMA class, with the group going through their paces on the pads before looking at passing the guard with the knee-split. The session was finished off with five rounds of rolling.

Big thanks to everyone who turned up including Cat, Michelle, Mark, David, Graham, Chris and Matt.


Mystical three sided shapes dominate the night sky over the Fusion MAC at Haworth

Another fun-filled evening was in store for those students attending the Fusion Martial Arts Centre at Haworth this Tuesday night as we smashed our way through an hour of mixed stand-up and an hour (and a bit) of adults mixed martial arts.

First up was the mixed stand-up as we had our usual mix of men and women in for the usual mix of striking styles, all of which are useful when it comes to MMA. First off we were looking at how to set up inside and outside leg kicks with punches to the head, before looking to stick our opponent in place with a jab-oblique kick combination before creating distance with a push kick.

Next was the turn of the adults MMA class and after a few rounds on the pads we quickly got down to the small matter of the triangle choke from the guard. First we looked at how to finish it before moving on to three set-up’s from the closed guard. This was all finished off with a large dollop of rolling.

Well done to all of those that attended including Adam, Cat, Matthew, Georgina, Michelle, David, Jonny and Owen. Please remember to reserve October 30th in your calenders for our two hour “Halloween Spooktacular” fundraiser (10am-12pm) in aid of a local children’s centre.

Mixed stand-up and Adults MMA classes go down a storm in Haworth this Tuesday night

Another fun-filled night was had by all that attended the Fusion Martial Arts Centre at Haworth this gloomy Tuesday evening as we put our members through their paces during an hour of stand-up and an hour (and a bit) of MMA.

First up was the “Mixed stand-up” class, with our group looking to back their opponents up with a flurry of punches to get the guard high before slamming in a spinning back-kick to the body set up from an inside leg kick.

Next up was the “Adults MMA” class with the group going through their paces on the pads before switching their attention to two mounted Americana set-ups. The session ended with fifteen minutes of grappling sparring.

Well done to all of those that attended including Mark, Michelle, Georgina, Matt, Jonny, Chris and Owen.
