    Thanks Pete. I have kept an uniterupted diary on my training and teaching since 2003 and I thought it may interest some what a typical night at the CCMA club consists of.

    This time the juniors focused on the fence, pre-emptive striking and grappling as a support system whereas the seniors moved onto chokes and strangles. Discussions included a recent documentary on knife crime, further ways to test and drill chokes and strangles and a re-cap on the previous two weeks sceptical arguments in martial arts:

    I put Geoff Thompson's theory regarding kicking to the test and ask whether focus mitts can be kicked effectively in my latest diary entry:

    As always, any feedback is most gratefully received.

    To quote: A new article in the Martial Arts Scepticism series will focus on this particular logical fallacy argument.

    I love to see healthy scepticism at the best of times, but in the martial art industry it is much appreciated,

    good work Jamie,

    Den.

    Thanks Den. There was a great debate on "Start of the Week" today you'd have enjoyed.

    Hi Jamie

    Good stuff mate

    Need to work a little on that grimace though. If you want some lessons - happy to help. Had many years practice as Geoff's magazine eye gouge and face bar grimace-ee Laughing

    How's the book coming along - was the interview of use to you?

    Hi Al,

    mexwave Respect to the grimace! You are the master and I will follow Wink

    The interview was great, Al. The book is proving to be a monster, but I am still getting the research in and interviewing plenty of people. I am also consulting the best martial arts historian I know and am pleased (if a little disturbed) to note that my assumptions regarding martial arts history (or lack of) appear to be correct

    And, as promised, here it is. We looked at MMA for the kids and then we got down and dirty with it with the adults!

    After my recent Red Flag Day with Mo Teague I took back the new drills and concepts to see how they sat with CCMA:

    More fascinating progress with the self-coaching method in the junior class and the seniors faced the return of the infamous scramble drill!

    The story continues with the juniors revising a variety of subjects, including the fence and the seniors facing a new and improved "Tunnel of Death"!

    The junior class did some functional martial arts movement exercises last night and then focused on their clinch/stand-up grappling work. The seniors looked at layering techniques and reinforcing principles. I have included a list of exercises to train certain movement/principles as a solo exercise, as an exercise with a compliant partner and as a pressure test plus work with resistance bands etc. Low on photos at the moment, but hope to correct this very soon!

    We focused on takedowns and discussed the concept of the order of training. This latter point related to "learning from the fight". Should sparring always be scheduled for the end of a lesson?

    Our junior grappling programme continues and we got into some heavy technique quarrying through MMA and multiple attacker drills before refining said techniques through a series of varies exercises designed to promote good body mechanics. http://www.clubbchimera.com/?p=687
