This weekend Joachim Christensen and Theo Ginman from our academy was fighting in a danish MMA event, Royal Arena 2. This was Theos first pro MMA fight, and everything went according to the game plan. Clinch him up against the cage and go for the takedown. GnP and take the submission if it is there.
It can be really nervreking before the fight, so it is big a relief, when things go as planed.
Here is Theos fight
Joachim had a great fight against a good fighter from Sweden. Joachim did a great job standing, in the clinch and on the ground. It was more or less the same plans as Theos.
Both of the guys did really good and I’m very proud of them.
My own training has been on and off lately, but now I have started to train for London Open and the European Open No-Gi in october, and I can feel that it has been a while since I have trained hard, my body hurts in the morning, but it is a good feeling, and it is easier to motivate myself to train hard, when I have a goal. I think that it is going to be a great trip, there something like 10 guys going from the gym going to compete.
I’m going to start filming my sparring sessions again. Starting from tomorrow, so check in soon for more updates.
