Fundamentals – Guillotine
- Standing Guillotine Offense and Defense – Being in a standing guillotine is not a fun place to be. Sometimes in MMA fights fighters will get put in a standing guillotine and try to tough it out while someone tries to yank their head off. Obviously it is tricky to escape this position due to the guillotine being such a strong move. We will be looking at how to quickly address the position as soon as it happens and escape.
- Attack Guillotine from Bottom – Sit up, wrap head, scoot back, finish. When we are at the bottom of closed guard, our object is to always get safe. Start by breaking the posture of the partner on top. When and if they chose to regain posture, you are going to do a crunch, and follow them up for a fan sweep. If the partner on top drives into you, now is the time to guillotine them. Make sure you are hipping out far away from your partner and getting your butt back further than your shoulder blades. We will look at how to finish the arm-in and arm-out guillotine.
Intermediate – Maintain Side Control and Advance
- Maintaining Side Control to Advance to Mount – After seeing this for a week you should have a pretty good idea about how to keep your partner firm on the mat. We will continue to increase resistance and expand upon these techniques. Specific training with resistance will get you to the next level when working on moving from side control to mount..
Kickboxing – Teeps
This week in kickboxing, we will focus on using the teep, which translates to “foot jab” in Thai. The teep is a versatile weapon that can be used for range finding, disruption, off-balance your opponent, or setting up another attack. We will look at the mechanics of this kick then explore the different uses of the teep!
Muay Thai – Conditioning
Due to the holiday last week, upcoming seminar, AND the last week of hard training for our Smoker participants, we will make the focus of the week conditioning 🙂 Come ready to work and push the pace this week in class! Get comfortable being uncomfortable!
