MMA Stars into High Gear

By On July 31, 2008 · 4 Comments · In High Gear

While Coach Blauer was in Vegas for UFC 84, he had the opportunity to demo our High Gear to Marc Laimon and his team at Cobra Kai Jiu Jitsu. Check out this footage of the session which was featured on rawVegas.

Following that session at Cobra Kai, Tony did a video shoot for Throwdown.tv. On hand for this session were UFC Heavyweight contender Frank Mir and High Gear sponsored UFC Lightweight Joe Lauzon.

    Hey Tony, wanted to share an incident with you and anyone else reading this post. Had a minor scrap with a young man in the hallway of our detective office. As I was trying to handcuff him he brought his right hand up quickly to my face which made me flinch. The next thing I cognitivly remember is palm striking/SPEARing him into a metal table. He crawled out wanting to fight, but because I stayed close and didn’t “create distance”, he caught a palm strike to the back of the head. Fight over. So much of the close quarter form played into this little 5 second fight but the most important point was something you said on your CQF tape, simulate your startle-flinch in the form. When he made me flinch, I didn’t think, I just hit him because thats what my form looks like. And I don’t practice it as much as I should, but when I do I fake my flinch. If one does that enough and correctly, you won’t have to worry about whether you will do something or not when attacked, you’ll just do it. And that is psychologically and emotionally liberating. Thanks again, Dana

      Hey Dana! That’s awesome. Thanks for the feedback…its great to receive this level of feedback. When I first designed the form, the ‘intent’ was to replicate a series of ‘actual’ movement that would be triggered by the aggression of the attacker – so its great to hear that that what happened in training is what happened in the street :-)

      Stay safe
