Combat sports training advice

Getting in shape for combat sports is hard work, but can be a lot of fun. It is essential to train a combination of different body systems including:

  • Strength
  • Flexibility
  • Power
  • Coordination

  • Skills
  • Agility
  • Most people who fight competitively spend a lot of time working on strength training - to deliver power through either hands or feet it is essential that you have strong legs, and a powerful core.

    It's no coincidence that boxers traditionally spend a lot of time on road work, preparing their legs to carry them through a fight.
