A Very Special Message From Professor Duke Roufus: Roufusport Head Coach Duke Roufus is excited, and for good reason! He’s been extremely hard at work with the team in the lab creating DRSU’s next special product set for release in the following month, Pad Holding Science-The Art of Pad Holding Perfected, plus other major additions to DRSU that you’ll absolutely love!
Imagine going from a B-level pad holder to an A-level pad holder. This can mean the difference between winning and losing for your fighters, and your students improving at a faster rate.
For many martial arts and fitness school owners this is the missing link that will absolutely upgrade your pad holding skill set 100%, make your training sessions safer, boost student retention, and help you become more in demand as a coach!
Watch for more details here on Pad Holding Science coming soon.
Free Technique of the Week-Options After Catching The Body Kick: Body kicks hurt, and even though we can check them or move out of the way, legendary Muay Thai fighter, and coach of Roufusport’s Duke Roufus, Kongnapa “King of the Sky” teaches us we can also catch them.
From there, we have a number of different options available to us as you’ll see in this week’s video! Key points to remember:
1. As you are catching the kick, take a small step AWAY from the kick. This will take away the power of the kick.
2. After you catch the kick, aim to put the hand of the arm you kicked with over your heart. This will help keep them off balance.
3. After you catch the kick, react! You can throw strikes, plow forward, or even sweep them!
