THE MARTIAL ARTS TRAINING METHOD
The first stage is Introduction.
Introduction is just that, the first time the movement is introduced to the students within that class. The motion, technique, or skill, is taught, and then repeated, absent any resistance.
This is done until the students can repeat the motion mechanically correct, when no resistance is present.
This is not drilling. This is simply introducing of a new move. And this stage tends to last no more than 5-15 minutes, maximum. A good rule of thumb is that if it takes longer than about ten minutes for everyone in the room to learn, and be able to repeat, mechanically correct – than it was probably too complicated for that group.
SBG’S MARTIAL ARTS TRAINING METHODOLOGY
SBG Portland is home to a world class martial arts and self defense training methodology which is applied to all our programs, offering unmatched results. Take a look and see what the biggest star in MMA history, SBG athlete, Conor McGregor has to say about training in SBG methods with one of SBG International’s coaches John Kavanagh.
“ Every gym I went to had a set way. Don’t do it this way, do it that way, but when I met my coach John Kavanagh at Straight Blast Gym it wasn’t like that. He had an open mind and he encouraged different movements and I never experienced that before. And I thought to myself: this guy, he is thinking outside of the box. When he spoke it made complete sense to me and I stuck with him ever since. ”
