Yesterday afternoon concluded the 2nd day of the FlowFighting®®® for the Stand-Up Martial Artist seminar. As with all FlowFighting®®® seminars, Coach Wilson and Coach Jones provided detailed explanations to provide a comfortable format for beginner-level martial artists to develop the necessary skills. At the same time, their in depth knowledge of Martial art enabled them to provide pearls of wisdom that more seasoned martial athletes would be able to integrate into their personal game and see stellar improvements in performance.
Day 1 covered incrementally developing good mechanics in simple (but not easy) drills to develop good structure as well as work on biomechanics to take us all the way from standing into the Clinch.
Day 2 we went deeper into Clinch work, throws, and groundfighting. The structure and biomechanics we developed on Saturday were now pressure-tested in progressions of static-to fluid- to dynamic drills.
A few examples of mini-modules covered within this seminar were:
- The importance of GPP
- Developing good structure firstly from a boxing-based approach – incorporating more and more elements to develop effective and efficient structure for all elements of the stand up game.
- Detailed exploration of biomechanics for basic strikes, kicks, and throws.
- How to utilize good use of structure to make every defensive maneuver into an offensive maneuver.
- How to minimize fear-reactivity in receiving strikes and being thrown
- The proper mind and emotional state for effective and efficient fighting.
As always, it was a pleasure working with Coach Wilson and Coach Jones as well as training with familiar and new faces alike.
Thanks again to the Coaches, our organizer - Adam Steer, and every athlete who made this seminar possible.
