We had a good time tonight watching UFC 116. We were at the Broken Barrel and we had about 35 people show up. Not too shabby for a holiday weekend.
I was happy to see that Brock Lesnar was healthy again. Carwin was beating up on him in the first round, but Lesnar came back in the second and won by submission. That’s not too surprising considering he’s been working with Erik Paulson. (The Guru of Submissions) If you have followed Erik’s career, you see that he can pull off things you would only see in a comic book. He’s an incredible submission specialist and an all around great fighter and coach.
I would urge anyone to check out his material.
A Very Fun Drill We Did at the End of Class
Posted: June 30, 2010
At the end of one of our classes, we did a drill that simulates what happens when you get hit in a fight, and how difficult it can be to execute the techniques that you have done a million times. The students that you are watching are all really good students. They have thrown a cross-hook-cross combination countless times, and they are good at it. Once they are dizzy, it becomes a totally different story. This combination they have done many times, is now extremely difficult to do. The body no longer moves the way you want it to and it is difficult to stand.
I had to yell a little louder than usual to make sure you can hear me in the video. The first video is the better video, since it was taken with a better camera. The second is from a different angle taken with a cell phone.
All the students did a very good job with the drill, and it was a lot of fun. I’m sure we’ll do this again. I hope you enjoy it.
