Duke Roufus Striking University Episode 05:

Proper Sparring Culture

On this last episode of Proper Sparring Culture for 2019 we go out swinging for the fences! Roufusport Head Coach Duke Roufus starts out the training session with Knee and Elbow strike drills. As always, Duke cannot stress enough that your Defense always needs to be at 100% no matter the level of competition you are facing.

This Roufusport star studded session features current Global Association of Mixed Martial Arts (GAMMA) 160lbs World Champion Laura Sanchez sparring Bellator MMA star Emmanuel “El Matador” Sanchez in what Duke dubbed the “Sanchez vs. Sanchez” match.

You’ll also see UFC Star Anthony “Showtime” PettisBellator MMA fighter Christian Rodriguez and Roufusport Striking Coach Joe Nicols sparring with students while Coach Cush offers important advice on proper offense and defense.

Duke closes the session with some solid advice, telling the class if your goal is to be a fighter you can’t take breaks, because when you do, you’re teaching yourself it’s ok to quit.

Hope you enjoy this special episode on creating the Proper Sparring Culture and as Duke always says, “We’re having fun getting it done!
