Elite Martial Arts

Martial Arts from a Wheelchair

Posted: March 20, 2011

During the course of my martial arts training, I have come across quite a few individuals, that are disabled in some way. Some were confined to wheelchairs, and others had some other physical limitations. In all of these cases, these individuals enjoyed the same benefits as everyone else who practices martial arts.

Some of these individuals even became instructors.

We at Elite Martial Arts believe that everyone needs to be able to defend themselves, and everyone needs to stay in shape. The martial arts provides a vehicle to achieve both of these objectives. Additionally, training in the martial arts helped all of these individuals by helping them focus on what they could accomplish, and helping them to achieve their goals.

Open Floor

Posted: March 19, 2011

Today we had our second Saturday of “open floor”. This is an informal time when students can come in and prep for their upcoming tests. It was a lot of fun, and I think the students are well prepared for testing next week.

Stay tuned for testing pictures as they should be posted over the next few weeks.

Lockflow from Sidemount from Erik Paulson

The following video is of Erik Paulson demonstrating a lockflow.  Please check out his website at He has a lot of videos available, and his instruction is top notch.

**Update** The original video was taken down from youtube, so I linked to another example.  This example is also in a prior post, but it is an extremely good example of movement from one technique to another.

Bad Sportsmanship in a Muay Thai Fight

Posted: March 18, 2011

Let me first say that I love Muay Thai. In the overwhelming majority of matches, fighters are extremely professional and respectful. Unfortunately, this was not one of those matches. It starts out normally and then gets totally out of control.
