Gary and I today. Jason injured but ran the timer and just generally helped out.
2 rounds shadow boxing
1 round boxing
1 round savate
10 15 second rounds of Russian stormfighting (unbelievably tiring…like 10 adrenaline dumps.)
Stormfighting in a nutshell for those who have no idea what it is..15 second rounds of pure aggression and no rules.(we still do our best to not break our training partners though.) Although it is a comp in Russia, we use it as an attribute builder. Teaches aggressive attack and how to not only deal with pressure but how to apply it. One ten round stormfighting bout probably teaches you more than ten normal roungs of sparring but man…it kicks my butt bad! Will try tog et some video of the stormfighting next time around. Our stormfighting tradition comes way of RAF Russian All Round FIghting.
We then worked on a move form wrestling dubbed the farmaconda, made famous by the Schultz brothers. Since wrestling season starts soon for Gary, we will be hitting the wrestling extra hard. Here is a link to a vid of the farmaconda being used in international competition:
Seeing that this month has been dubbed Leglocktober, we decided that every session this month will include leglocks….went over bassic achilles crush and straight ankle lock as well as inverted heelhook.
