HEAVY ASSAULT - Go heavy, or go home! This striking combination, plucked right from the catalog of Mantis Boxing techniques passed down for centuries, is to overwhelm the opponent with big, destructive, blows.

Connecting with the first one is ideal and effective, but if they duck, or move back...

What's the difference between a Hook Punch and a Circle Punch? Are they really that different? Yes, and yes. 

The Hook Punch is used at a closer range, similar to an uppercut. It works well when you are striking in tight, or engaged in a Clinch (Lǒu 摟). In here, a long range strike will extend beyond my opponent. We position the arm in a tighter hook shape to help…

Light, fast, yet highly effective'; the Whipping Fist is a great punch to have in your arsenal. Check this video out for more on how to throw it, pad drills, and bag drills that you can use to perfect this sneaky shot.

I've been waiting a long time to put this Side Control drill to video. We finally had an opening to get it in. I think it will be a huge help for those of you looking to improve your Side Control/Side Mount.

Enjoy the drill!

The Scraping Fist - like a low uppercut, or body shot. One of the advantages of this punch, is the fact that unlike throwing a straight punch toward the body which comes in from a high angle, this punch comes from underneath by dropping the elbow, making it harder to block.

It's a great punch to sneak in shots to the body, especially when using the principle of Changing Levels/Varying Targets. . But it can be dangerous trying to pull it off at the wrong place/time.

Here are some tips along with pads drills, and bag drills later in the video for practicing the scraping fist on your own, or with a partner.

Swamp Talks - Episode 01 - How to Start Martial Arts (Oct 2014)

This was one of the more common questions we received from our poll, and obviously super important to people. Your first school can make or break you in your martial arts endeavor. It is important to search around and try different places before signing up.

The style - not everyone has the luxury of choosing the style based on their geographic location. What is more important than the style of martial arts, is find the right teacher for you, and a good environment with people that are helping each other be better than we were yesterday.

If you have more questions, or something you would like to see us answer in Swamp Talks, leave them in the comments section below. Thanks for watching!

Fully on board with this. On month 2 of 'Intermittent Fasting' and feel great. I started with 14 hrs and currently up to 18 to 19 hrs/day. I did not change my workouts.

If you are doing moderate to heavy exercise, I'd recommend stabilizing your diet first, or doing this TRF before going to the intermittent, or full fasting.

Fingers hurt after training? Grips not strong enough to hold on when grappling? Check this out.

Grip strength and health can be a really important thing for martial artists. Grip intensive arts such as Judo, Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu, Shuai Jiao, and other Grappling Arts, all require/build grip strength, and put a great deal of wear and tear on the fingers. Today I'm going to show you the methods I use to keep my grips not only strong, but healthy. For strengthening: exercises like rope...
