  • Quick video tip: Slipping the jab, countering with an uppercut

    This is a kickboxing combination we worked on recently in class. I’ve been really digging the use of the uppercut as a counterpunch lately.  Remember – stay tight (protected). You don’t have to flap around to generate power in the uppercut. The power comes from your hips and really shoveling from the ground.

     

     

    I believe this clip is from Pat Miletich’s Striking Strategies DVD or his Train to Fight and Win: Standup.

  • Uppercuts from UFC 139

    Among many of the awesome things at UFC 139, there were a number of solid uppercuts. Thus inspired, I threw together a little video with commentary.  Hope you enjoy.

     

     References:

    BJ Penn’s book, the MMA book of knowledge, has a solid introduction to the uppercut punch with a couple of variations.

    If you are just looking for a quick video on how to throw the uppercut, here’s one for that.

    Or you can always go the boxing purist route with Russ Abner’s boxing fundamentals DVD.

    What was the first song you walked out too?

    The first song I walked out to was,”Bust your head,” by Young Buck.

    Has your song stayed the same or do you change it up?

    I have changed my song and now have a local rap artist do my own personalized song.

    Do you listen to music before your fights?

    I don’t listen to music before my fights. I like to watch other fights before mine that gets me pumped.

    What kind of music do you listen to in the gym?

    I listen to different kinds of music in the gym usually rap or rock.

    You have a lady over, what’s one song that you’re putting on to set the mood.

    When I have a girl over, I would put on, “When I touch u girl” by local rapper Sammie Vegas.

    You can pick three songs and three songs only to listen to from the Muve Music library…what are they?

    3 songs I would listen to are “killa shit” by local rapper Cadillac, “Love pop the trunk” by Yelawolf and “lodi doddi” by Snoop Dogg.

    Anyone you wanna thank?

    I wanna thank Mike Stidham, UCTC and Mushin for helping me out. Ken Anderson Chiropractic, Tyler Ayers, Lta and Bamn Entertainment a local rap group, I think they are the best in Utah. You can check out some of their music on Youtube under “Sammie Vegas.” Steelfist, Sammie Vegas and Cadillac Love for doing my own personalized walk out song. Last and not least my family friends and all the Sugaloaf fans

    What was the first song you walked out too?

    I don’t remember the first song I walked out to, I was nervous and didn’t want to spent energy on trying to decide what song to walk out to, so I just let the Dj pick. It was some kind of rap song or something.

    Do you listen to music before your fights?

    I generally don’t listen to music in the locker room before a fight, but if I do I make sure it’s something really relaxing reggae or Enya or something. I’ve seen too many fighters over the years, blasting death metal in the locker rooms and completely peaking and crashing emotionally before they even start warming up.

    What kind of music do you listen to in the gym?

    In the gym I’m down for pretty much anything. When I am drilling, I really like listening to classical music. My coach (Jason Mertlich) says it helps you learn more efficiently.


    You have a lady over, what’s one song that you’re putting on to set the mood.

    I’m fortunate enough to always have a lady over because me and my fiancé Antoinette live together. We don’t always have the same musical tastes but the one genre we can always agree on is reggae.

    You can pick three songs and three songs only to download from the Muve Music library to listen to for the rest of your life…what are they?

    3 songs only!?!?! That’s a tough one! right off the top of my head ill say Badfish by sublime, Beethoven’s Moonlight Sonata, and Gods gonna cut you down by old man Cash himself.

    Anyone you wanna thank?

    Thank? Of course my coaches, Jason Mertlich and John Hackleman, my teammates, my family, and my girl. All of them make them make it all worth it.

    This article is from Marilyn Collard, she is somewhat of a “fight Mom” for a whole Team down South. So sit back, get to know a couple fighters a little better and enjoy.

    Clay Collard and Billy Daniels Hit Utah’s MMA Scene.

    Eighteen year old Clay Collard and nineteen year old Billy Daniels have
    burst onto the Utah MMA scene with a bang…literally. These two young fighters
    have a lot going for them….especially each other. Although their fight styles are
    different, they have so much in common it is almost scary.

    These two first heard about each other in Jan. 2011 at the Tournament of
    Champions in Vernal Utah. Clay and Billy were ranked number one and two going
    into this wrestling tournament, but never got the chance to wrestle. Collard was
    disqualified for an elbow thrown, and Daniels did not finish due to injury. Neither
    placed in the TOC. This is just one more coincidence in a long line of them for
    these young fighters.

  • What is talent, anyway?

    This Article comes from Arcanum Brazilian Jiu-jitsu Blog


    This is for you, Randy.

    Today represents my re-entry into training after a nasty elbow injury a couple of months ago. It was just one of those things that happened during class; no one was trying to be tough or hurt anyone else, but I got arm-barred and didn’t tap soon enough. I’m just getting back to where I can train lightly.

    For some reason, I don’t have much desire to blog when I’m not training. Maybe I see it as a chance to work on other things.

    At any rate, I wanted to share an interesting conversation I had over YouTube regarding talent vs. hard work. Some months back, I made an off-handed comment on a video of Zakir Hussain about how I’d like to learn to play the tabla. (Zakir Hussain is pretty much the Roger Gracie of the Indian tabla drums, if you’ll forgive the analogy.) In the comment, I said I’d never be as good as Zakir because I can’t dedicate my life to playing the tabla.

    Well, being YouTube, someone took issue to my comment and started going off about how even if I had a bazillion years, I could never be as good as Zakir Hussain at the tabla. Which is probably true. This led to a debate about which is more important, talent or hard work. My esteemed YouTube acquaintance pretty much told me I was messed up for thinking that talent takes a back seat to hard work.

    This has everything to do with jiu-jitsu to me. Like every other discipline, we’re stratified, but what is it really that separates us average Joes from the BJJ elite? Is it some mystical element called “talent,” or is it something more palpable?

    Here is the explanation I sent. Tell me what you think:
