Wind and rain doesn’t stop our members from flocking through the doors of The MAC

We had a super busy day, perhaps our busiest yet, at The MAC at Haworth today, with our regular trio of classes the main focus for our members, Kids MMA, Mixed Stand-up and Adults MMA.

First up was our kids class, with the oldest set of children pushing through their latest round of MMA gradings. First up we looked at the more advanced striking combinations before transitioning to the grappling which looked at mount/back mount controls, takedowns, guard passing and even three submissions. A big well done to everyone who took part and especially those that passed!

The first of two adult sessions was our mixed stand-up class, with the group getting quickly into the swing of things with a few technical sparring drills. Six rounds of padwork followed before we got down to an extensive period of stand-up sparring.

The final session of the night was our MMA session for adults. After a speedy warm-up the next twenty minutes focused on padwork, giving our members the chance to punch, kick, knee and elbow the focus mits. The grappling technical focused around passing the half-guard, looking at the difference between using the tripod and sitting to gain the advantage. The night ended with a little rolling.

A big well done to everyone who attended the centre over the course of the day including Jessica, Natasha, Roxanne, Jay, Mark, Michelle, Georgina, Paul, Ed, Michael, Ebun and Graham.

A big shout out to our sponsors, The Fleece Inn as well.

See you next time on the mat…
