An interesting video from Bas Rutten on blocking. What I liked is the highlighted contrast between boxing “bobbing and weaving” and the blocking for MMA. This underlines the idea of context determining all; which is much discussed on this forum. I also like the logic and efficiency (and frequently the humour) of the way Bas Rutten teaches. The “hands high” blocking discussed is also very much in line with how we teach blocking from the beginning for the fighting side of things. We do however also teach head movement later on (always being mindful of context).
All the best,
