So I have my first MMA match this Friday. It’s a complete amateur thing and as far as I know it’s my opponents first match as well. The only real martial arts experience I have is 4-5 years of Judo, but that was ages ago and although I remember a good deal of the throws and such most of them were based on working the gi so I’m not totally sure how to transfer a lot of them over.
I’ve bumped up my cardio for endurance, but coming from rugby I have a good base for endurance to start with. As for ground work I’ve done some practice with one of the guys who fought in the last event up here and I’ve been practicing some of the rubber guard work on my girlfriend of all people. I guess you’ve got to work with what you’ve got sometimes.
Anyways I was wondering what advice you guys had for me. I’m just trying to pick up everything I can to use to my advantage.
