MMA Fights for Attention - Page 2
Below are some of my favorite apps that are helpful:
MMA Grappling: MMA prides itself on the fact that you don’t need to be the strongest, just the best strategist and technician. This app teaches you about Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu strategy and provides you with enough instructions to actually do things without striking.
MMA Subs: El Cucui developed this app. He teaches you some of the techniques he has used to become champion multiple times. Videos in this app are pretty useful for beginners.
MMA Ground and Pound: Sayif Saud actually recommends this app. He guides newbies through his own comprehensive training plan for MMA fighters.
MMA Strikes: This app features videos that visually teach you how to throw a proper punch, elbow, kick, knee, and properly defend yourself.
MMA Underground App: This app is more news oriented but still on the top of my list. Users can get the latest UFC and MMA news seven days a week.
Although this is not an app, I wanted to call out MGinAction.com. Created by Marcelo Garcia, arguably the best grappler in the world, he basically puts all his lessons online. This includes videos of him training with MMA stars like Jake Shields and a hierarchy of videos where moves are broken down into variations.
As mentioned earlier, Schrage spotted some drawbacks of the app he first used early on, but he hasn’t let that detour his use of apps to help him train. “As stated, access and relevant, technically correct information are the two most important things,” Schrage added. “MMA fans are extremely sophisticated, and they will shoot down any app that is trying to put forth subpar information. As far as what makes a good app in general, I like apps that are reliable, consistent, and ones that load fast. Also, I have a certain dislike for any app that contains unnecessary advertising.”
