Have you been chasing fad training programs and expensive gimmicks but not getting stronger, faster, or more skilled? Does it seem like your pocket book keeps getting lighter but your punches aren't getting any heavier? Fighting fitness isn't about fancy tools or beautiful gym space -- it's about about training with proper focus in a measured, healthy, and efficient way.
Learn the three things you must do to establish proper mindset. Start improving right away using the "S.A.F.E. M.P." protocol to ensure that your training focus and assessment tools are always on track. Establish a fitness foundation in calisthenics and "MBF" a.k.a. "Martial Base Fitness" and then build a training program to meet your individual marital arts goals choosing from a vast menu of razor sharp training methods. Includes proper use of heavy bags, floor bags, and grappling dummies, double-end balls, and slip balls; how to use resistance tools, like auto tires, chains, sandbags, dumbbells and barbells to get stronger; six conditioning runs that really work; and old-school sledges, pipes and mallets. As an added bonus, there is a chapter filled with DIY instructions for making your own equipment for pennies.
Honed by thirty years teaching martial arts in inner city programs on shoestring budgets and in public parks for a non-profit, this book is as real as it gets.
