    Strength Training for the Martial Arts

    I'm curious to see how the MT community trains for strength. Does strength feature in your martial art? Any technique, however technical or "soft", must require some modicum of strength to be executed against a resisting target. So how do you train for strength? Do you go for general or more...

    Rolls in Self-Defense?

    Hello, MT. As those of you who many know me now on this forum, I'm a Sambo and Systema practitioner. That means regular full-contact near-MMA style combat, although at the moment my rank's scope still doesn't include striking techniques in accordance with traditional Sambo curriculum. I just...

    Strength & Conditioning for the Martial Arts/Combat Sports

    The title subject of this thread is something we all have to live with as martial artists/practitioners/combat athletes. To some, it's a supplement to increase performance; to others, it's the end goal (fitness & health). So how do you do it? How do you train for strength, endurance and/or...

    Maximum Output w/ Minimal Equipment (All-Around Strength & Conditioning)

    Is anyone here a fan of minimalism when it comes to training for conditioning? I'm looking for kindred spirits. Budget constraints keep me working out on my loft for the better part of my life. I've since given up on trying to maintain my gym subscription, and as of this last weekend, have...

    Cardio & Conditioning for the Sport

    Hello again, MT. Just before high noon earlier today I finished my first morning training for conditioning and cardio fitness in lieu of my recently-realized desire to enter the fray of MMA. I'm working with Martin Rooney's Warrior Cardio program, and I've just gone through the first few...

    Thinking about giving MMA a try. Tips?

    Hello, MT Community. So I'm thinking about giving the Mixed Martial Arts gig a try. As is I have roughly two good years invested in JKD, and (more recently) two and a half with the Keysi Fighting Method. I've been researching on basic rules and guidelines, obviously disappointed to find out...

    Hallo from Wales, UK!

    I've been in the martial arts scene for about 4 years total now - past 4 years taking up JKD UK with Scimitar Martial Arts, and the past two and a half also trying out KFM with official instructors here in Wales. It's been quite the experience so far. I'm a 22 year old female engineering...
