    This is a review a mate did of the last camp, cheers

    5 Members of Sheffield’s The Forge MMA team recently went on the Herculean 'Olympic Wrestling for MMA' camp.

    The training facilities were world class. We were privalidged to get to train at the British Wrestling Academy’s Gym in Salford. It had 2 Olympic size mats, a full weights area, changing rooms with showers and a dining room.

    The first day started with Mohammed Ali. We worked mainly from the clinch and looked at duck unders and arm drags.

    Next we got a surprise visit from Ali Arish who competes in MMA and has used his wrestling skills to achive a record of over 10 wins. He took over the class and showed us techinques he found useful for fighting. We learn’t various counter attacks for when people go for a single leg takedown.

    Mohammed took control again and we got to wrestle against guys attending from different gyms. It was nice to see that we did quite well against most of the people who we were matched up with.

    At dinner we completed to try and eat the most complimentary sandwiches / custard cream biscuits. There was also tons of cola so we were buzzing for the afternoon.

    This part we did takedowns mainly, Mohammed showed them us (who is fairly big) then we got Krasimir Krastanov a 55kg member of the British team show us how he does the move as a light weight guy, using his speed.

    We finished off the first day wrestling against Krasimir Krastanov, Ali Arish and another British team member who was built like a bear and never spoke. We lost!

    The second day we were “treated” to a free strength and conditioning lesson from the head coach of Extreme Strength and Conditioning, Barrie Edwards. It was nice to see some of what the fighters from the UFC do to improve their cardio. He also did a small Q&A at the end.

    Next Myroslav Dykun took the class, we drilled loads more moves and also got help with them off a female member of the British wrestling team Olga Butkevych. Lastly we wrested again against different guys on the camp before having lunch.

    After lunch we got to see some crazy games the wrestlers play to keep fit and split up training. These included a chaotic team tag game and best of all Rugby style basket ball.

    Myroslav then covered lots of little tricks and sneaky moves he knows, even some ground work, before finishing with a Q&A with himself and Mohhamed Ali.

    A real nice touch at the end of the camp was we were given signed certificates of attendence and a goodie bag which had been provided by the camp sponsor . It had 2 shakers inside, both filled with post training suppliment drinks for us to have on the way home.

    The camp was great value for money, we didn’t expect to get coaching from 6+ world class guys in 1 weekend.

    Hopefully we can get even more guys from The Forge MMA on the next one!
