MMA class started off tonight with a Snake Pit inspired warm which consisted of –
On the spot sprints
Each exercise was done for one minute whilst one member of the class was either slamming or suplexing the wrestling dummy. This continued until each student had a go with the dummy!
Once the guys were suitably hydrated we got straight back into it. Tonight’s chain started with defending against a straight left and right from the pad holder which was followed by our right overhand, left uppercut, right overhand. We then added in a left and right elbow then double knee. From there we moved into position and used a cross-buttock throw to take our partner to the ground and end up in side control. Once we had control of our partner we used a neck crank, forearm choke or face crank to get the finish.
Great effort by all tonight and good progress being made by the guys!
