My next fight is supposed to be at the end of August, but that's just my next MMA bout. Sometimes I do TKD tourneys or grappling competitions to keep myself sharp.

Excellent Training Routine. I am gonna try the ankle weights when i'm kicking pads. Sounds like a good idea and sounds like it works. By the way do u shadowbox for 15-20 mins? I do while i'm holding usually 2-5 pounds weights in each hand. It's pretty much what you do with the ankle weights except with your arms instead of legs. I get the same feeling when i put em down and throw a few punches at a pad or bag. I feel Stronger and Quicker.. Keep up the good Work IronMan

I don't shadowbox as a part of my regular training routine, but I do when I'm just standing around or watching tv, during comercials. I perfer to hit the punching bag just because it gives me an idea of how hard I'm hitting as opposed to just my hand speed.

I do weight my gloves, usually just the wrists, because if you weight the knuckles then you start to rely on the momentum of your fists, with the wrists you minimize that. It also helps with guarding and blocking, because you don't get tired as easily.

Since I got back in the states about six months ago I've been doing free-running, which is a european sport, also known as Parkour. I've been on it on my own time as a way of keeping up my cardio and toning the whole body.

Parkour is basically a martial art within itself. It's called "modern ninjutsu" by some, but mostly it's just the art of movement. It's the way of getting from point a to point b with absolute grace and doing things that we don't think about. It's like a sport where all you need is your body and the cityscape.

I know that my approach sounds a little bit far fetched, but if anyone is interested I can start a thread on Parkour as a park of MMA training, which is what it is becoming for me.

I've dropped my benchpress, kickpress and overheadpress from my regimen in order to focus more on form grappling and striking, as well as increasing my cardio.

The revised regimen:

Warm up - 8 rounds of 3 minutes shadow boxing with 18 ounce gloves and 6 rounds of 3 minutes on the heavybag (all of this is just hands)

Grappling I - 10 minutes of sprawls (1 30 second break in the middle), 20 minutes of takedown drills and Roman-Greco wrestling (alternate training partner every 2 minutes), 20 minutes of submission grappling (alternate partner every five minutes)

Striking I - 10 minutes of straight heavybag (working combinations, knees and kicks), 10 minutes of hand-pad striking (for accuracy and speed) and 5 rounds of 3 minutes live sparring (no partner alternation)

Cool down - 20 minute jog

It's not so much that I train my ground work more than I train my standup, because I do spend alot of time shadow-boxing and doing Muay Thai training, but I'm 5'6". 95% of the guys that I'm going to fight are going to be taller than me. The reach I lose in standup seems to give me an advantage when I have an opponent pulled in tight in my guard or when I'm in the mount.

I train where I know I will have an advantage.

i know what u mean. im 5"7 and i train my ass on my stand up because once in fight i couldn't take a guy down, like his takedown defence was to damn good. so now i always make sure that i can trade if it ever comes to that again

people say either the world will end at 2012 or the aliens will finnally come back to us.....


i hope not cuz im writing a sci fi novel

I've never had that issue. If a guy can stuff my straight wrestling takedowns, which most guys can't, I have judo and my standing submissions to fall back on. I can also pull guard on pretty much any 155 pounder I've ever stepped in the ring with.

If it comes to a throwdown, I really only have a few combinations, but I'm strong enough that I can drop someone with a big right hand or a knee. I prefer knees, but I do end up using my elbows and hands more, because they're faster.
