Dutch Kickboxing Drill for MMA Tutorial
Dutch Kickboxing is known for it's aggressive style. In Holland, training is often done in a give and take fashion utilising gloves/shin and instep protection. As opposed to the more common pad work often found elsewhere when practising striking in martial arts. The benefit of this approach in utilising Dutch Kickboxing for MMA is that it encourages the fighters not to overload with power and focus more on technique, application and movement.
The featured coach is James Doolan, BJJ Black Belt, internationally renowned instructor and head coach of Higher Level Martial Arts in Whitburn, Scotland. Higher Level Martial Arts (and also under it's more widely used moniker 'Dinky Ninjas Fight Team') have fighters competing around the world across the very highest level of MMA promotions. These include UFC, EFC and ACB to name but a few. In the tutorial below James goes over a drill he likes to utilise with his fighters in training. It successfully melds the Dutch Kickboxing style with the specific requirements of MMA competition.
