Intensive Fight Camps

Lawrence 3

Our Intensive Fight Camps give a concentrated burst of high quality, high energy training to competition fighters with the ambition to improve. The intensity is high so we run them for only two weeks at a time, after which we suggest that you rest for a little. They are suitable for amateurs and semi professionals. We concentrate on stand up fighting, especially San Da (Chinese boxing), K1 and general kick boxing. We do not train ground fighting but can give a lot of help to MMA fighters wanting to improve their stand up skills, take downs and take down defences.

Don’t miss out! Next Intensive Fight Camp takes place August 13 – 27 2016.

You can reasonably expect that by completing a fight camp you will:
· Significantly increase your punching and kicking power.
· Strengthen your take down defence.
· Gain new combinations.
· Increase your strength, flexibility and stamina.
· Significantly improve your take down skills.
· Develop your breakfalls.
· Increase your skill in clinches and standing grapples.
· Tighten your defence.
· Be better able to switch your strikes between head, body and legs.
· Adopt a more active guard.

You will learn:
· Stages in preparing for a fight.
· How to cut weight safely and effectively.
· Methods to control pre fight anxiety / adrenaline rush.
· The mind game – adopting a winning mentality.
· Breathing exercises to aid recovery from training and injury.
· Relaxation methods.
· How to make the best use of the gym.

You will be taught advanced training techniques which few modern day fighters know for:
· Core strength.
· Flexibility.
· Improving the accuracy of your high kicks.
These techniques make a big difference! And to win you need to have an edge.

Sparring.
Over the course of the two weeks you will take part in eight sparring sessions, each lasting for one hour. The instructors will be watching carefully and will give detailed feedback after each round. Sparring will be reasonably light contact in order to minimise injuries. It is optional but very much recommended – this is a chance to hone your sparring skills with a variety of new sparring partners from different martial art backgrounds and receive skilled, experienced coaching.

The ‘Nam Yang Warriors’ professional fight team.

The Nam Yang Warriors will be teaching and training at the ‘Warriors’ Intensive Fight Camps held in August of each year and will be ready to spar with all students, giving you the chance to sharpen your skills with serious professionals. This is why the ‘Warriors’ Intensive Fight Camps cost slightly more – we have to fly the professionals in from their base in London. We think that it is well worth it.

 

Your Teachers.
To really up your game, you need to be taught by professionals.
Master Iain Armstrong has been actively involved in martial arts since 1976, is twice world kung fu champion. His students have won six world titles in Chinese boxing and countless national titles and include Steve Keen, head coach to the Nam Yang Warriors. He now runs the Kung Fu Retreat in Thailand with assistant head coach Jan Dendonker and their team of full time instructors.

Nam Yang Warriors  Steve Keen and  Anthony Kannike are members of the  Nam Yang warriors professional fight team  who are making a name for themselves on the international stage. They will be teaching at the ‘Warriors’ Intensive Fight Camps. To check whether either of them will be appearing at the lower level camps in February and June, please enquire using our contact form.
