Hey everyone! I just wanted to update BE on how my training is going. I have been working on my striking five days a week and wrestling two days a week, although that is just to tune things up, although from an MMA stance, sprawling is a bit different, but I still have my double leg.
The first week or so my hands were awful, although it was mostly my hip rotation that was the problem with it. The coordination and flexibility problems from cerebral palsy have made moving on the balls of my feet for all of my right handed strikes and muay thai kicks a little tough but I am starting to get the hang of it.
My jab is getting to its full extension and my cross is getting better as well, and tonight I finally am getting the hang of sitting back on my rear leg and not leaning forward during my strikes. My Muay Thai kru has me focusing on a lead leg defensive style with a lot of jab kicks to try and compensate for the CP on the right side of my body.
I will update you all next week with more, as I start gi BJJ on Wednesday! I am super amped as I am good with movement on the ground but lost as far as submission defense and offense are concerned. If anyone has any questions feel free to ask and I will be happy to answer them!
