The MartialBody System

Developing the attributes of the Martial Artist

MartialBody is a series of supplementary training methods for martial artists, competitors or combat sport athletes. The aim of this system of training is to create  'Attributes' that are useful and relevant to everyone, no matter what the style, tradition or  background. Because MartialBody is not a Martial Art, and should be viewed as a supplementary physical training system, we have teachers, practitioners and adepts from a wide variety of styles training together at all of our events. The Martial Body  methods are drawn from Bio-mechanics, Movement Training, Sports Therapy, Tai Chi, Chi Gong, Traditional Martial arts and  Strength & Conditioning.

THE ORIGINS OF THIS TRAINING

The 6 key attributes of the Martial Body

 
All elite Martial Artists and Combat Sports Athletes share a group of key attributes when we interact with them. They are heavy, stable, connected, fast, circular and able to change in accordance with the conditions. We have created modules of training to focus in on these attributes that will allow you train them directly.

Testimonials

  • “Firstly, this stuff is WAY harder to do than it looks! But the payoffs are big. I have trained in the Heavy & Stable body modules and could immediately see and feel why they are relevant to me as an MMA athlete. My wrestling and take down defence has shot up and my hands are heavier than ever!”
  • "Coach always seemed to make the method specific to the individual he was coaching, even in the crowded room which was so refreshing. Coming from a Wing Chun Background, my requirement is different to that of the BJJ guys in attendance and this was skillfully handled meaning that every exercise was still extremely relevant to me. Great system, awesome coach.”
  • "Training with Coach in his BJJ classes I was always struck with his structure and weight. Now I know why! In one session I got a taste of how he is able to exert so much pressure for his size. HeavyBody work is a clear advantage for anyone into grappling, for throw defense and top pressure it really makes a difference. Definitely worth a look a this no nonsense work.”
  • "One month into some specific exercises from MartialBody and my niggling shoulder pains are gone. Simply exercisese that produce amazing results, Coach Chris specified a routine for me to follow, explained the science behind the methods and then it was down to me to train it. What a difference 30 days made, I literally feel like a different person, thank you coach.”
