First time doing any kind of martial art/boxing/fighting. Started on Thursday December 1st.
Training at Zerger MMA, so far have had only two sessions. I love it and can't wait to keep going.
Thursday- Took the dive, obviously started with nothing but technique. Orbits, stance, shadow boxing, all of the leg kicks and body kicks trading 1 for 1 with the head trainer (slowly). Pad work - 4 two minute sessions (two holding the pads, two hitting the pads), crunch punch's for 2 two minute sessions, 150 crunches. Learned the number system, 1 is a jab, 2 is a jab+cross, 3 is a jab+cross+hook, 4 is a jab+cross+hook+cross when hitting the pads.
Caught on pretty quick, need to focus on keeping weight on balls of feet.
Could barely move Friday Lol.
Saturday- Today was a bit longer session. Started trading 2 for 2 on kicks and punches for a warm up. Went twice as fast as Thursdays session. Worked on defense for kicking. Added head kick and uppercut. Did 6 three minute sparing rounds, trading partners each time, pretty intense (for being out of shape). Stayed light on my feet, and kept a good balance on the front of my feet at all times. Added the jab in, noticed I had a hard time defending the jab, was working with a guy that faked a sh!t ton. No matter where I put my hands, he got around them. The front kicking was rediculous, got kicked in the stomach probably 50 times. Need to get quicker at sweeping the leg as it comes in. 4 two minute rounds of pad work+ 2 two minute crunch punches.
Can't wait until Monday!
