Finishing the Triangle - Lessons learned from a lifetime in Japanese MMA with Enson Inoue
Finishing the triangle (or any submission for that matter) increases in difficulty in direct proportion to the ability of your opponent. Therefore, the higher the level of training you can access, the more effective you will be at completing any attacks you instigate whilst grappling. Japan is well regarded by many as one of the birth places for a multitude of Martial Arts disciplines. This has led to it's own unique journey within the evolution of modern day MMA. One such individual at the forefront of this has been the world renowned Enson Inoue.
The featured coach is Enson Inoue, Shoot Heavyweight Champion, renowned fighter on Pride, head coach at Purebred MMA gym in Saitama, Japan and legendary trailblazer on the Japanese fighting scene. Enson, although born and raised in Hawaii, is now a permanent resident in Japan, having moved there nearly 30 years ago to train and compete at the highest levels in Martial Arts.
He has notable wins over world level fighters Randy Couture, Soichi Nishida and Andre Mannaart. His extensive career has seen him compete in MMA bouts on some of the biggest promotions in the world, including that of UFC, Pride, Shooto and Vale Tudo Japan as well as grappling on the elite stage at ADCC.
Alongside his Martial Arts, Enson has also founded Destiny Forever, where he personally designs and creates bracelets utilising gem stones known for their healing/restorative properties. These off the shelf or bespoke pieces are in demand globally because of both their beauty and their inherent Yamato Damashii inspired spiritually positive influences.
