Collection: Ryan Diaz

  • Years ago, when the UFC first started out, fighters would typically train in combat sports such as Boxing and Muay Thai separately in order to work their striking. Fast forward to present day and the game has evolved massively. MMA striking has now taken on so many different facets and nuances as a result of both the smaller gloves and rules set, it has become it’s a standalone system within its own right. This is something world renowned MMA coach, founder of Diaz Combat sports in Vancouver and former professional fighter Ryan Diaz knows only too well. As a result, he formulated his own complete system of MMA striking drills to help those he coaches massively develop this aspect of their game.
