  • Best Training Methods/Ideas

    Hello Everyone,

    Just to stir up some conversation: "what are your favorite training methods or ideas"

    My #1 -Sparring, one on one or multiple. I find it the best method to pressure test any technique or strategy that I am learning or have been taught. Lot's of sparring methods and drills but i'll save that for a different post.

    Alright it is too quiet:

    #2 Striking practice: Tire dummy, heavy bag, sand pit, trees, opponent's stick(sometimes their body ..LOL), power strikes in air

      I find myself falling back on my rusty solo drills skills... It seems Kata tends to get overlooked in recent times.

      Back in the day most Jujutsu training was in the forms. Nothing wrong with live resisting training partners that act and react to sharpen your skills but in my case there is no one in my neck of the woods to train with.

      Sometimes I wish I had payed closer attention to the forms (kata).

        Hey Tant01,

        Solo training is a huge portion of learning, never underestimate it. Kata is ubiquitous in all martial arts, it may be called another name kuen, form, tactic, etc, but while solo training in FMA think about Sayaw, sinawalli, shadow sparring they are all the same and great aides to your development

          #3 Footwork combined with striking combinations. (More on this one later...)

            Hello Guro Steve,

            I've always used Carenza as a way to practice my striking patterns using the stick/blade while working on FLOW. Hope you're doing well.

              Hey There Guro Ernie!!

              Long time no see! I am doing great and training is rocking on.

              Another tip: Weighted or Heavy weapon training. Great to build strength and endurance, but ensure you don't jerk on the joints, or you will be hurting and healing for awhile.

                This thread is almost a year old but I thought that I would make a comment on it none-the-less. Sparring gets most of my attention these days especially multi-person sparring with 3 or more people fighting against 1. In training numerous years with PG Edgar G. Sulite one of the things which he brought to our attention the most was the necessity to allow sparring or fighting to bring to fruition all of the things that we spent our time developing and refining in our training. He would say that sparring is the laboratory which brought all that we learned and acquired through training to fruition. Even in solo training he would recommend that we swing our garote as hard and as fast as we could with intention without slowing down or stopping for 15 minutes as to develop enough stamina should we have to use our skills one day to defend life and limb. He would say that the amount of energy that we would expend in striking our garote with intention for 15 minutes non-stop would be the same amount of energy which would be required of us while fighting against 3 or more opponents in less than a minute.

                In experiencing sparring against more than 3 people at a time now I have to concur with him as it does require alot of foot-work, concentration and stamina to contend with them all for slightly less than a minute. It is something that I recommend to any of you who want to truly experience chaos and uncertaintly in training as the fight unfolds in front of your very eyes second by second. In doing so the answers regarding your over all effect may surprise you. As well when I am training my largo-medio concepts in drill form I will also try and do this training against 3 or more allowing them to give a random feed with intention leaving me to discern which to respond to and when while being forced to close my centerline and recover with each strike that I am forced to throw in turn which again violates my centerline revealing opportunities to my opponent which I am forced to recover again and again. It is good training which allows you to brush up fairly close to reality in your responses.

                Regards,

                    Hi Guro Dave,

                    Been a long time seeing you at an AMOK! seminar with Tom Sotis. Great post and I agree multiple man sparring is taxing, footowrk needs to be sharp, mental focus and physical conditioning need to be on the game. Hope to see you posting more!
