MMA conditioning, countering the roundhouse kick

Posted by: torrey

In today’s MMA in Dayton, Ohio conditioning class at Tenbears Martial Arts in Dayton, Ohio Academy we worked on dealing with counters to an opponent’s roundhouse kick.

After warming up the body at Tenbears Martial Arts in Dayton, Ohio Academy, we worked on a basic counter to the roundhouse kick, which is a kick commonly found in many Martial Arts in Dayton, Ohio. To begin, as the opponent performs the roundhouse kick in Dayton, Ohio we move our body into the kick by stepping to the side along the path of the kick so that we don’t let the roundhouse kick hit us. Then we catch their roundhouse kick with our arms and step into the opponent and sweep the leg they are currently standing on. From there we can go to the ground and apply our BJJ in Dayton, Ohio techniques on our opponent. This is also an effective technique in MMA in Dayton, Ohio especially when the opponent has a background in striking Martial Arts in Dayton, Ohio and little to no experience in grappling in Dayton, Ohio as it takes away their position for striking and puts them in unfamiliar territory which makes it even easier to perform BJJ in Dayton, Ohio techniques on them. It is also effective for self-defense in Dayton, Ohio as it puts the opponent on the ground forcefully, while leaving you in a superior standing position if you do not want to go to the ground.

Another variation of the roundhouse kick defense we trained at Tenbears Martial Arts in Dayton, Ohio Academy was once you block the opponent’s kick, you shoot in and wrap your leg around the opponent’s leg and force them to the ground where you can apply your BJJ in Dayton, Ohio techniques to them. This is a risky move as it gives up your standing position and forces you to go to the ground so it may be a situational technique in a self-defense in Dayton, Ohio situation as there may be more than one opponent around.

Once done with the kicking defense techniques at Tenbears Martial Arts in Dayton, Ohio Academy we then moved on to some station drills that worked on our MMA in Dayton, Ohio conditioning to help build up our cardio and technique. Once the stations drills at Tenbears Martial Arts in Dayton, Ohio Academy were done we then moved on to our sparring in Dayton, Ohio session where we brought all of our MMA in Dayton, Ohio techniques together against resisting opponents to get the maximum benefit from our MMA in Dayton, Ohio training.

We then finished up our MMA in Dayton, Ohio conditioning class with our yoga for fighters in Dayton, Ohio program to help stretch our bodies out and prevent any further injuries from occurring.

I smoked a pack of cigarettes a day when I started training.  I started training mainly cause I have always been interested in Brazilian Jiu Jitsu. I felt that the self discipline and fitness oriented training would be the positive influence I needed in my life. I have cut down 15lbs since I started training and quit smoking after the first class. The self confidence I got from the training is something that is unreal. The Sensei is awesome and the way he teaches the classes is informative, fun, and the techniques are extremely useful in competitions. The feeling I get from the school is that we are a big family we watch the fights together train and compete together. I recommend this school and program to anyone that needs a positive direction or fitness training in there life.

Tenbears has great martial arts classes.  I am a huge fan of jiujitsu and would recommend it to anyone.  It's a great family environment and Sinsei Jim is very patient and ensures that everyone practices key moves correctly.  I know I live a healthier lifestyle now and have more confidence and overall fitness.  I'm learning self defense and gaining more appreciation for Brazilian Jiu Jitsu.

The number one reason I signed up at Tenbears MMA was because I had a background of boxing and wanted to become more of a well rounded fighter. I wanted to improve my cardio and become more confident that if I end up on the ground in a fight that I will be able to handle the situation. The 3 most important benefits that I have received since I have started training here ; my self confidence has gone up by leaps and bounds, I have became a very well rounded fighter, and I have gained some lifelong friends. I am very happy with the instructors here. Their patience and knowledge of the arts of jiu jitsu, kickboxing, and judo are one of the main reasons that I committed to the school. My overall feeling is that it has become an extension of my family. The respect we give each other here is something you don’t find at every school. I don’t feel like just another statistic here. I would recommend this martial arts school in Dayton to anyone that wants to learn self defense, lose weight, and or compete in jiujitsu. You won’t find a more well rounded school in the area.

The number one reason I wanted to join a martial arts school is to get fit.  I also want to gain more self discipline because I want to become a professional MMA fighter.  So far I have lost 20 pounds, I am much more flexible and I have tons of energy.  Tenbears is the greatest martial arts class in Dayton and it feels like part of my family here. I would definitely recommend this especially as an alternative to karate classes or taekwondo.

Martial Arts DaytonI joined Tenbears MMA mainly to improve on my self defense. The benefits that I have received from this school are endless. Some of the main ones are physical fitness, overall martial arts training and knowledge, and meeting and getting to know others that train many different Martial Arts styles. I have gotten a lot of experience doing ground work (jiu jitsu), also my striking and fitness level have improved by leaps and bounds. I feel the instructor is as much a part of the class as the students. That is something that I don’t see in other school and I think it helps with the overall comradery in the school. My feelings about the school as a whole are it’s a very friendly school and not competitive at all, even though some of the students do compete. I recommend this program to anyone who wants to get into better shape and or learn some real life self defense and/ or MMA.

~Torrey

I love to compete and have always been a big fan of full contact competition. I had wrestled for many years and decided that this would be a more advanced and technique style of competition. Two of the biggest benefits I got from this school and style of training are honor and respect. I learned that honoring and respecting the school, the sensei, and most importantly myself I was able to advance in the sport.  The leadership skills and humility I learned from this school are something I will carry with me for the rest of my life. The feeling I get when I hit the mats and start training is indescribable. The way the classes are taught to the people that train in the school it’s like no other school I have ever been to.  I recommend this school to anyone that is at all interested in training or trying any style of Martial Arts.

I joined the Tenbears Academy in Dayton mainly to lose weight and improve my over all health. Self defense is also important to me and my family. In one month of class (two days a week) I have lost 6 lbs and one pant size. I feel a drastic difference in my stress level too! Sensei Jim is great and there is a real sense of camaraderie in the class. I’m so glad I'm here and would recommend this martial arts school to anyone.

~JASON ROGERS

 The main reason I wanted to train is because I love watching MMA fights on TV. I really just wondered if I could do that type of competition also. I joined Tenbears MMA to try and improve my fighting skills. To say the least I am getting in better shape then I thought I would, I am getting stronger, and my fighting skills have improved drastically. The way the instructor teaches the class is unlike I thought it would be. He really gets in the class just like the students and trains with us. My overall impression of the school is friendly. The way the other student's seem to wanna get to know you kinda caught me off guard, its like a big family. I recommend this program to anyone that wants to improve their self defense skills and or compete.
