Sparring in Martial Arts Using Static Fluid And Dynamic Principles

Sparring in Martial Arts Using Static Fluid And Dynamic Principles

In this new series we were about to
start we’re going to study the different aspects of sparring today we’ll be
talking about the types of training needed for you to understand your
sparring and help us supply what we can talk about in future videos stay tuned
we’ll talk about it Welcome to Shihan’s Dojo I’m Shihan
Marty Husband and I’m here today to help you build your skills and knowledge into
martial arts or if you’re wanting to learn more about the martial arts
maybe tell you a little bit more about it so if you’re here for the first time
jab that subscribe button and punch that belt so we can notify you and we have a
new video coming out since we’ll be discussing sparring over the next few
weeks the question of the week is what type of sparring do you prepare for
leave it in the comments so we can get a little more discussion going on about
the different types of free sparring when we train for there are many aspects
to sparring and everybody has their own opinion about what is correct and
sparring and what is not in today’s video we’re gonna break down the basic
types of training that you need to do before you start sparring and then next
week’s video we will then break down the different methods of sparring that is
out there in the sport plus another thing I like to add into it now in
understanding the different types of training for sparring we have to realize
that almost everyone goes through this very similar pattern in order to
understand what they need to accomplish this type of training basically collates
the athletes ability to handle various situations they might find in sparring
or self-defense alone the first principle we’re going to talk about is
static training now static training teaches our bodies to basically use the
patterns and techniques we have to understand on an individual basis for
each of the athletes good training involves us teaching our bodies to
understand the movements and actions and be able to perform them at a high level
these distinct patterns are usually unique to any athlete that is trying to
do it in other words some people can do certain kicks some people can’t
most the time most everybody can do a punches but there are a few out there
who might not be able to these patterns basically work themselves out into the
form of basic techniques such as blocking jabbing kicking takedowns or
whatever is needed for the athlete to train seriously enough to keep from
getting hurt or being able to apply what they need in sparring it doesn’t matter
what patterns the athletes are using but first and foremost understanding how
they’re using the techniques they have at their disposal once they’re
comfortable with these techniques and patters then they have to add it into
their own mobility and be able to change up angles and movement on their own this
mobility training can consist of shadowboxing or various drills to help
them understand and encompass the patterns that they have been taught it
gives them the mindset for attacking defending or
plain creating a fight plan in situations in classical karate or come
for many martial arts there are forms and Katas that these athletes will do
routinely to keep up their body strength into actions that they are doing other
times you’ll see the athlete basically train in combinations or patterns that
the coach has set up for them specifically in order to understand
their own muscle memory and be able to use it with their own mobility of course
this is dependent on the style or the goals of the athlete themselves
oftentimes in static training there’s little to no need for a partner however
a partner might be employed in order to help the athlete with the function of
the blocking when they’re being attacked or basically understanding the angles of
attack that they might be using with this technique this is basically done at
this point keep the athlete from hurting themselves
and actually prepare them so they don’t have to think about doing the techniques
and are able to transition to new stuff even in cases such as jujitsu or judo
are taught to roll and drop on the ground before they ever learn to throw
an individual although most those techniques are done pretty smoothly
safety always has to be the concern and that they’re not going to hurt their
partner in the process of this training if they’re an eating one I’ve seen many
mm8 clubs go out there and try to start up classes in colleges as clubs this one
club has started out with 42 people one semester and by the time they were done
by the end of the semester there were only six people with a majority that
people getting out because of injuries they incurred while training with them
it’s a sad thing when somebody gets injured or hurt because of the lack of
safety or the lack of experience in many ways it wasn’t the trainer’s faults
because then themselves were just students of the college and really
didn’t have the experience as a coach would or could if they had done it right
note to those out there thinking I dislike him inmate that’s not true
it’s just I’m stating a fact that a lot of MMA people don’t understand and they
don’t go through the proper static training in order to get better so an
understanding static training one has to also understand the aspects in safety as
well as the technique before they can use it the second principle is called
fluid training. Fluid training does involve bringing a partner together with
the athlete although it is still somewhat control athletes are usually
aware of what it’s about to take place because of the drills that they were
using or that they know what their partners in order to see how they
function primarily in using them and applying them this
type of training helps you to build your timing your distance your reaction mobility and the application that you had been working on to bring them together
to a point where they’re actually useful oftentimes these five details get rushed
too fast and the student does not fully understand what is happening or what
they need to accomplish fluid training does take a bit longer than people
realize I don’t know how many athletes have come up to me and said I want to
train an MMA so I can fight in the next six months and they may have never had a
single day of training except for some wrestling that they learned in high
school fluid training has to build upon the
static principles that you were working with originally when you first started
fluid training always has highly controlled sparring situations and in
these situations there are rules of course without these certain aspects or
rules the athletes and their partners could easily get hurt and that would
blow training for days or months at a time if it’s not done safely
even though fluid training is not completely realistic it’s sometimes
important for several different types of safety equipment that each of the
students or the partners would need to use of course it’s all dependent on the
different styles that you use of martial arts and the types of fighting you are
trying to accomplish the third principle is known as dynamic training this type
of training is the hardest by far to train simply because everything is real
in many instances it uses the actual technique and in the resistance of those
techniques in a realistic situation this is where the athlete needs to have a
psychological understanding of combat and self-defense experience does come
with actual combat which is unfortunate because we can’t send an athlete out and
say hey go fight someone and practice what you’ve learned because that on the
street that’s real first of all they’re probably going to get hurt and second of
all somebody’s gonna end up in jail that’s not a good thing for either one
there are many ways you can try to train in this situation often tell my students
they need to do tournaments in order to test their techniques out in their style
because it is basically the closest situation I can get them to for
realistic dynamic training and it is the closest substitute I can get for actual
combat know a week or two I’m going to put out the next video on this on where
we discuss the different methods of sparring there are many types of
tournaments that are good and are really close to actual combat such as MMA
fights UFC fights boxing and they’re so other types of full-contact karate not
everyone is built for full contact sporting events or the surprises that
can come along with them especially when it comes to injuries the bad thing for
these sports is there are always some rules that can’t be broken therefore
they don’t have the severe consequences of the reality in self-defense
I do feel however that an athlete needs to understand what it feels like to be
hit and to deliver an attack whether by bag training or makiwara training or
even an athlete padded up really well in order for them to strike and attack them
depending on the type of sparring that an athlete wants to do at any level
could be accomplished but the barrier rule must be understood and examined
when breaking down the technique for self-defense that means trying to
understand unlimited amounts of techniques and not only just the limited
techniques of a tournament what I mean by that is knees and elbows and in head
butts can sometimes not be used in these tournaments but are effectively used on
the street against them or can be they can use them for themselves now we
basically broke down the types of training that we can use for sparring
the first two methods have to be accomplished before the dynamic training
can take place in the next video we’ll talk about the methods of sparring used
today in sporting areas and some of the ideals that are used within them I’ll
also bring up one I feel that’s often left out of this category but we’ll
share that in the next video so I hope this has been a good start for you write
down these different types of training so that you can understand the process
that goes in with each of them see how they’re involved in your martial art
styles or what you’re trying to create or the sporting event you work in
remember the more you practice in this type of a direction the better you’ll be
doing it or coaching as an athlete you have to understand what the coach is
trying to direct you with so they can get you to the level that they need you
to be ready for and remember at any time if you’re having trouble with your
technique scrape down each of those levels so your body and your mind can
understand what it’s supposed to do I don’t care what sports you’re in if you
neglect your basics you’ll never be able to do the advanced principles needed for
you to use in your sparring situations now if this has been some help to you
press that like button and share it with your friends or other martial artists
you might know so that we can make Cheyennes dojo grow bigger and don’t
forget the question the day what type of free sparring or sparring and are you
trying to prepare for leave your answers in the comments below or if you have a
question leave them in the comments down there
too and we’ll try to get back to you just as soon as possible and hopefully
we’ll see you here again on Shihan’s dojo
