Are Energy Drinks for you?
 
Since 1997 when Red Bull was first introduced to the market,energy drinks have become a staple in America’s diet.  Red Bull, Monster, Rockstar, are just a fewthat you will see in the hands of Athletes, MMA Fighters, Trainers, Boxers,Adults, Teens and even pre-teens; look in the recycle bin of your localtraining facility and you will find several empty containers of energydrinks.  Energy drinks are consumed onthe drive to the gym to train, at the gym before training, during training andon the way home from training.

Why is a Manager necessary for MMA Fighters and Boxers?

 
Why is a Manager necessary for MMA Fighters and Boxers?
 
When an amateur MMA Fighter or Boxer turns pro they havetheir Coach/Trainer in their corner, preparing the Fighter for their profighting debut, but who is behind the scene preparing the Fighter for the businessof being a professional Boxer or MMA Fighter? Often it is the Coach/Trainer who books the fight, negotiates thecontracts and everything else is left to the Fighter to take care of himself.

Why Practice?

 
Is practice really important, I mean after all you havelearned your skill and have won a few MMA fights or some Boxing Matches or afew Wrestling tournaments so why do you need to practice every day?  To be a good competitor is all I have to dois learn the skills and I will become a champion from there. 
 
In gyms throughout the world you will find athletes practicingtheir skills; as they say practice makes perfect, but is that true?  Should it be perfect practice makes perfect.

What is a Real Coach?

 
For every competitor there is a Coach by their side helping thatcompetitor to reach its goals of being a Boxer, Wrestler, Muay Thai, Jiu Jitsuor MMA champion.  Is it really known asto what part the coach actually plays in the competitor’s life?  We are all aware that the coach is there toteach technique, to condition that athlete, to coach when they are sparring,rolling or wrestling depending on the art, to be in the corner when thecompetitor competes, to provide first aid when needed, to believe in the competitorsability when they do not believe in themselves, to instill unbeatable confidenceand basically to prepare the fighter to compete; this we all know, but whatother part does a coach play in a competitor‘s life?

How Important is Proper Nutrition to A Competitor:

 
As a competitor, rather it is professional/Amateur Boxer,Wrestler, or MMA Fighter it is important to understand that training is only one part of what it takes to be a champion: understanding contracts, public image, weight maintained, public speaking and nutrition are components of professional/Amateur competitor. Academy of Striking & Grappling located Anthe Inland Empire, Moreno Valley, Southern California trains their Boxer’s,Wrestlers, and MMA Fighters all components needed to be a successful competitor.

Can training ever be to hard?

Had something funny happen this week, had a visitor asking if he could try a day of training with our local MMA Inland Empire fighters and I said sure, go right ahead.  He said that he was a pro fighter who has had several MMA fights throughout Southern California and had even fought in some major venues, great.  This gives me the opportunity to see how my fighters do against someone with experience.
 
He started in our 3rd class of the day, my MMA fighters had already trained in two classes before this one.
