Leo Frincu: What is the definition and purpose of a fitness/athletic trainer/coach?

Coach Leo Frincu with his star pupil, UFC women's bantamweight champ Ronda Rousey

The purpose of a trainer is to provide the athlete with the necessary tools to improve his/her performance. A trainer’s goal is to create an environment where an athlete acquires effective behavior rapidly. During training, a trainer must make it a priority to create opportunities to expose a particular weakness and enhance physical/mental strength in their athlete. Since you (the athlete) is the one performing, their job (the trainer’s) is to increase your ability to make fast and effective decisions under stress. NOT to make the decisions for you. Read More »

Moments of WTF: Wing Tsun / BJJ Defense Solved? Doubtful

wtf moments

I would like to say that the techniques in this video look even remotely close to something that would work against a wrestling shot or jiu jitsu takedown, but I can't. This looks like how Kip from Napoleon Dynamite would be fighting off uncle Rico's unwanted advances. There is nothing here that says the guy in prison orange could defend himself in a real fight unless he was able to dictate how and which arm to use when getting attacked. Rex Kwon Do comes to mind.

Jessica Aguilar-interview

Jack Bratcher: It seems like wrestling is generally perceived as the best fit for the sport as a foundation. Dr. Rhadi Ferguson: Yes it does seem that way but it’s a false read that people are getting. What you see in MMA is called a convenient sample. You are looking at a sample of population of people which has a huge North American/United States bias and slant on it. There are more practitioners of martial arts in the world than there are wrestling practitioners. And if you don’t think so, just look at the adult population. Read More »
