Was going to write a bit about team spirit
Creating team spirit is not only the coach’s responsibility, but it’s everyone’s responsibility.
Team spirit is dependent on the cooperation of all individuals in the team.
Your own effort and everyone else’s efforts in training has a positive or negative influence on the team.
POSITIVE IMPACT ON THE TEAM:
Being positive towards your teammates means to encourage, support each other and talk about the good things you have done and all good things the team will do.
That means talking to his teammates about the positive things they have done, such as (“good takedown”, “great pass”, “good submission attempts”).
Even though we are doing a individuel sports, it is dependent on co-operation between all the individuals in the team.
# 1 EVERYBODY COMES TO TRAINING ON TIME
# 2 NOBODY STOPS TRAINING EARLY
# 3 EVERYBODY TRAINS WHAT THE COACH SAID
# 4 EVERYBODY DRILLS WHILE IT’S TIME TO DRILL
# 5 EVERYBODY “OPENS UP THEIR GAME” WHEN IT IS TIME FOR “SPARRING”
NEGATIVE IMPACT ON THE TEAM:
Being negtiv against his teammates means you do things that interfere with workouts and the preparation for tournaments such as
# 1 SHOWING UP LATE TO TRAINING
# 2 STOPS TRAINING EARLY
# 3 DONT PRACTICE WHAT THE COACH SAID
# 4 TO FIGHT FOR THEIR LIVES WHEN TRAINING TECHNIQUE
# 5 DO NOT “OPEN UP THEIR GAME” WHEN IT IS TIME FOR “SPARRING”
WITHOUT TEAM SPIRIT THERE IS NO WINNING, SO REMEMBER THE FOLLOWING:
– You are on this journey together with your teammates.
– Be positive with your teammates.
– And remember, there is no success without sacrifice.
– You decide if you want to win the GOLD.
— It dosen’t matter if you deserve it. You have to earn it —
I got this from fightzone stockholm facebook page and used goolge translate, to translate it into english.
A film about Fernando Maccachero, Tiger Muay Thai’s head BJJ Coach
A cool video o Braulio Estima’s MMA debut, from before and after the fight.
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.
