  Zumba for motivation to workout
Posted by: Alexandoy - 04-25-2017, 01:18 AM - Forum: General Discussion - Replies (2)

The new craze in our place is zumba. It is a modern type of aerobics where there is music and the people dance with a zumba master. People who join the zumba in the morning or evening sessions say that they need the motivation and doing the workout with some other people give them the motivation to continue. When they workout alone, it is boring and they feel bored. Maybe that is the reason why zumba is spreading like wildfire here. Most areas in Metro Manila have their own zumba clubs for purposes of a workout.

  UFC overweight penalty
Posted by: Alexandoy - 04-25-2017, 12:45 AM - Forum: Boxing / MMA / Martial Arts - No Replies

In his most recent fight against Ovince Saint Preux, a bigger fine was imposed on Marcos Delima for being overweight on the second occasion. A UFC fighter who is foung to be overweight suffers a penatly of 20% being taken off his purse. But for this second overweight violation, Delima was fined 30% off from his purse. The amount of fine will go to his opponent. Saint Preux weight 206 pounds for the light heavyweight fight which was just the limit while Delima tipped the scales at 210 pounds.

We all know that training for martial arts requires a strict regime that needs to be followed. Continuing the same practice schedule for months can appear boring at times. There are days when all we need is to sit and relax. What do you do in such situations? Are you very serious about your daily practice and no matter what you will ever compromise with the practice sessions?

  Any retirement benefit
Posted by: tpicks - 04-22-2017, 10:11 PM - Forum: Boxing / MMA / Martial Arts - Replies (4)

Are there any pension or retirement benefit for fighters. The old professional fighters looking to quit due to age I want to know if there are schemes on ground to cater for them after they resign due to age from active Martial Art sports.

  Msmatches are illegal
Posted by: Alexandoy - 04-22-2017, 10:09 PM - Forum: General Discussion - No Replies

In one kickboxing fight I was watching, the fight moderator mentioned the even skills and strength of the protagonists in the ring. The other moderator said that fight promoters of Glory Enfusion are careful to check on the previous performances of the kickboxers so that they can pit a good fighter with another good fighter. When there is a mismatch, it usually ends in a tragedy like a knockout or one fighter receiving heavy injury. That’s also what they do in boxing, they choose the fighters of a match to be at least even in skills and strength. Now, Las Vegas and some other fight locations have some laws that makes mismatches illegal. That is to regulate the fights and force fight promoters to be discrete in matching fighters.

  Biking is a good exercise with social aspect too
Posted by: Alexandoy - 04-22-2017, 10:00 PM - Forum: Off Topic Discussions - Replies (1)

I have to agree with my friends that biking is one good way of meeting friends. When my wife had her bike, she would bike in the community park in the morning when she has no work on weekends. After a month, I have been hearing new names from her mouth. Yeah, she was meeting lots of other bikers that congregate in the community park which is near our home. And to think of the exercise she gets, I’d say biking is one good activity for the health. However, she is not biking anymore since a bulge had developed in her right leg. Although the bulge only appear on occasions, the doctor had advised her against biking.

  Ageing fighters
Posted by: Alexandoy - 04-22-2017, 09:52 PM - Forum: Boxing / MMA / Martial Arts - No Replies

In boxing, 35 years old is already old and ripe for retirement although now there are boxers older than 35 who still has it. In MMA, number 1 contender for the light heavyweight Anthony Johnson retired after losing to champion Daniel Cormier. He said that he’s tired of being punched by “those guys” and he had a job offer that is not related to MMA. Johnson is 33 and it shocked the MMA world because they feel that 33 is still a young age to retire. In fact, there are fighters in the UFC who are 39 or even 40. Just recently, former One Champion featherweight champion Marantungalag Jadambaa challenged the current champion at age 40. And although he lost to Marat Gafurov by submission, it looks like he still has it.

  Are you happy with your body?
Posted by: amitkokiladitya - 04-22-2017, 02:45 PM - Forum: Off Topic Discussions - Replies (3)

A well toned body is loved and liked by all. There is no doubt that maintaining such a body needs a lot of efforts , consistence and will power. It is not something that is easy to attain and long lasting.

Personally I'm short in height and if I give up my regular exercise I feel clumsy and bad about myself. So I always try to keep up with my exercise regime.

  What makes an exciting fight?
Posted by: Alexandoy - 04-17-2017, 01:28 AM - Forum: General Discussion - No Replies

When I watch a fight, be it boxing, Muay Thai or MMA, I'm always on the lookout for a heavy hitter. It's boring to watch a fight when the fighters hit each other as if there is no impact in their punch and kicks. There were several fights I have seen in Glory fights where the fighters look exhausted in the second round so you can expect no more thrills because the prospect of a knockout if nil.

  Demetrius Johnson UFC pound for pound king
Posted by: Alexandoy - 04-17-2017, 01:21 AM - Forum: Boxing / MMA / Martial Arts - No Replies

UFC Flyweight champion Demetrius Johnson a.k.a. Mighty Mouse, successfully defended his title for the 9th time against Wilson Reis by submission. The fight was actually a no contest since Reis could show nothing by hitting the air all the time. It was all Johnson until the fight ended when Reis tapped out. I don't see anyone in the horizon who can give Johnson a good fight so maybe UFC should hold a competition to come up with a formidable and capable and worthy opponent for Demetrius Johnson.
