Congrats to Ed and Matt on their boxing wins at Liverpool Holiday Inn. Awesome KO’s
On October 22,2011 Tai Kai Had its first Halloween party. There were about 61 kids. We played all kinds of games: freeze tag, the limbo, gymnastics, Dodge Ball, Jump the Belt, etc. The Kid’s played in groups according to age and then in one big group. I think the parents that stayed to watch had more fun than the kids. The Kid’s also got to pick from the Huge Stash of Candy from the mats. Overall, It was a great time for students and staff.
I’ve been a fan of suspension training for many years. Suspension training offers up some unique exercise variations for BJJ.
One of my favorite exercises and combinations is what I like to call the “TRX Triple Threat.” It consist of 3 distinct exercises that address 3 functions of your hamstring and glutes.
* Knee Flexion (hamstrings only,mostly)
* Hip Extension(hamstrings and glutes, plus some others that I don’t talk about in this video.)
* Stabilizing your knee while extending through the hip, or in BJJ terms, keeping your opponent locked down while finishing your arm-lock.
In the BJJ conditioning video below I highlight different TRX exercises for BJJ.
* The leg curl
* The Hip Press
* The Straight Leg Hip Press
Once you’ve learned all three, try putting them together into one long set. 12 reps of each TRX exercise. 3 sets should be fine.
Be sure to watch the entire video as I relate these TRX exercises to BJJ moves as well.
Watch Shane win every aspect of this fight. Remember these two videos are amateur MMA. In PA you cannot punch to the face on the ground for Amateurs.
Watch Saboor totally dominate these fight.
Watch these two video clips. One is of Royler Gracie giving a Kid’s seminar and one is Relson Gracie giving a Kid’s seminar
