Shame Them Forever – Knock ‘Em Down With The Martial Arts Slap

Posted on 10 June 2010 by Tony Hackerott

Winning in a fight whether it is in the octagon, in your Taekwondo, Karate, Judo or Kung Fu martial arts school or in the street is always an incredible feeling. However there are some knock downs and K.O.s that are just so much more impressive than others. Now just imagine taking down an opponent with a slap! That will definitely put a stop to any after the match trash talking and no doubt put a rematch with you way at the bottom of things they ever want to go through. If you picture it now, surely you can imagine the jokes every time the fight is talked about for the next ten years and it will certainly earn you a pretty sweet reputation.

Martial Arts Shoes vs Bare Feet Training

Posted on 08 June 2010 by Tony Hackerott

1The ongoing debate about whether it is better to train with shoes or barefoot has been going on for years. Of course many traditional martial arts have always insisted on it’s students training barefoot and certainly they are not permitted in the UFC octagon. However this is changing with martial arts like Tae Kwon Do and some forms of Karate allow practitioners to train with shoes. Though certainly part of this change is due to the development of specialized shoes made especially for practicing martial arts with big brand names like Adidas Taekwondo uniforms getting into the market.

It is distinguished by it’s full contact training, stand up style and emphasis on it’s practicality and physical toughness.

Martial Arts Workouts: 3 Ways To Build Stronger Shoulders

Posted on 04 June 2010 by Tony Hackerott

When it comes to stepping in the octagon or other martial arts arena having big, ripped shoulders not only looks menacing and impressive and give you a mental advantage but can also mean harder more powerful punches you can land on your opponent. Adding the following three shoulder workouts to your fitness regime can give you all that and more.

Punches Only Sparring

This offers a great mix of tactical training and strength training while building up stamina for grueling long mixed martial arts bouts. The best martial arts equipment for this is focus mitts and heavy gloves. Use punches only, no kicks or knees to really work the shoulders to full effect. Take turns punching and holding the focus mitts for your partner (this will still give you a burn after holding your arms up for an hour). When striking have your sparring partner call out the punches and combos. Start with 2 minute rounds back and forth and build up to at least 10 minutes straight – double a UFC 5 minute round.
