Duffy, im hoping those points will help new guys so they don't have to go through the "growing pains" as i like to call it. Would be cool to see if anybody here new would like to try it out.
Schwarzfahrer - ive been thinking about that today. I should change the title to BEGINNER Striking theory....
Personally, ive never actually had a full MMA match or even had the opportunity to actually put on those 4 oz gloves and actually try sparring. So im totally not qualified to give any tutorials on that subject matter. Im still learning as much as anybody else. I wouldnt feel comfortable unless i sparred in MMA several times before i could even begin to adapt my striking style to MMA.
For guys who are new, i find most bull rush the first round. They think its a fist fight and more experienced guys will just drop back and let them punch them selves out after the first 30 seconds they go to work. Getting the idea in their head that this isnt the same as a street fight will help them adjust. I think new guys it's important they start making a paradigm shift.
This system is common for boxers who transition over, which is what i retained to Shoot box and Sanda. There are guys who do this in MMA as well. Reread that and watch anderson silva in the first minute. All he does is guage range and reaction times.
I totally agree but this is designed for guys who have trained for less in 5 months and sparred in their first 3 months. I've been training since i was 10 years old and now currently being 31, TKD, then Boxing, then to MT and now sanshou/shootbox i have yet to see somebody so gifted they can develop reaction time in their first few weeks of sparring.
Yes, i know its horrible, ill start going through it now. Im going to start with "BBEGINNER Striking Theory: 10 Simple Points to help people new to stand up sparring." It's actually a very big over sight as i was rushing out the door. The purpose of this is for people NEW, advanced things change dramatically.
thanks for reading and giving me some valuable feedback, i can clearify it much better with the help of all you guys. You guys are great!
also i noticed your from germany, do you guys have a lot of MMA schools? I didnt know it was fully supported over there. its great to hear MMA atleast is growing.
