Fight Prep

Well Im fighting again in Feb so I have 4 months to prepare. The guy im fighting is strong (ex power lifter) and is heavier than me and a bit bigger too haha.

His style is sanshou.

Im mainly going to concentrate on endurance and technique for this one.

So to start with here is the plan.

Monday- MMA and sparring session
Tuesday- Endurance circuit
Wednesday- BJJ
Thursday- Endurance/ Cardio
Friday- Not sure yet
Saturday- BJJ
Sunday- Rest

One of the endurance circuits that i will use is 3x3 mins to start with 4 exercises in each round and a mins rest. As the weeks progress the rounds will increase to 5 mins.

At training I will be doing iron mans about 2 months towards the fight.

So far my weight is 70kg my opponent is 77kg but cutting to 75kg.

Its almost as if I like to be tapped out! lol

Definitely technique and endurance. Sanshou as an Art (from my knowledge) has a lot of deliberate focus on speed and technique. At Sanshou comps most of the wins will be by KO, by lead leg round kick or some combo including lead round kicks. Its an Art that is almost a combination of MT and Greco. In that they include knees, elbows, and leg kicks, but also takedowns, and more points are awarded for explosive takedowns over regular takedowns, plus you're only allowed to grapple for 3 seconds before its broken by the ref, so you have to be quick!

This knowledge in hand its easier to find proper training partners that can emulate an explosive quick style. Does he have any kind of grappling background? Like JJ or Wrestling or Judo or something?

As far as i am aware he has only limited experience in Sanshou.
And no other styles.
Also another quick question the fight is in Feb next year so I feel its a little soon to be starting my preparation camp for it now.
How long before the fight is ideal in your opinion?

Normally, Sanshou fighters would have a focus on speed and technique, not strength. But this guy being a(n ex) powerlifter, I can probably imagine he brought that mentallity with him into martial arts. He's probably still trying to jack on some more muscle now as we speak. I would guess that that weight advantage of his is pretty much all muscle. That really means you'll have to use your cardio to your advantage to burn him out. Make it difficult for him to use that strength advantage of his.

So I'd say make that Friday another cardio-oriented day, is what I'd say.

If he's pure Sanshou and not a thing else, you could go to the ground. I don't know how confident you are in your ground skills, or in your standup, or what you favor. But I'd say the best bet is to stay standing with him for the first round and dance around with him to burn him out. Once he's slowing down, take it to the ground where he's just going to get more and more tired, and where you'll probably have the skill-edge. Sanshou has no ground work to speak of.

Use your own judgement though, and be prepared for whatever may come.

I don't think four months is too far out. Just don't let yourself get burnt out or overtrain to injury.

As said above if he's pure Sanshou he's probably a wet fish on his back. If you're avatar is any kind of indication, you probably are much more versed on the ground than he. And as you probably know JJ off your back has a whole lot more to do with technique than muscle.

As far as I know about training and general physiology, a camp of between 3 and 4 months is what works the best. Meaning that you'll peak around fight night, or a little after. That means that with a fight night in February, maybe the 2nd or 3rd week of November would be time to start climbing the proverbial stairs to peaking!
