Three years ago I first introduced the concept of combining kettlebell, bodyweight and mma specific drills into circuits to create the feel of fight on my first dvd Combat Kettlebell sytems. For those of you who are not familiar with what it feels like sparring or actually being in an mma fight, its is super intense. Because fighting involves your entire body and is very explosive in nature, it creates what i call the anaerobic effect. This means that you will get that feeling of doing an all out 50 yard dash at full capacity. This is why mma/combat athletes are some of the best conditioned athletes in the world. This is why I adapted my Kettle-Jitsu program to incorporate full body, anaerobic style workouts. Using this concept has been proving to help burn fat and build muscle effectively.
The beauty of Kettle-Jitsu is that you do not have to be a fighter to train like one. The movements and exercises in my system can be learned and taught to anyone. Perfect example is in the enclosed video. My Student Jennifer is a college professor. She has no interest in fighting whatsoever. She is more of a soccer player. But, knee injuries has hindered her ability to play. This is a perfect example of how safe Kettle-Jitsu is as well. If taught properly, its low impact and easy on the joint. You can also adapt a lot of exercises according to injuries. Jennifer really enjoys the boxing aspect of mma. So in this circuit, we are emphasizing the striking aspect of combat. We include Shadow boxing, kettlebell figure 8 to a hold(similar to throwing an uppercut), Thai knee bodyweight combo and focus pad training into this circuit! Try it out for yourself!
