The 'Weight' in Technique

We often think that fighters or Martial Artists need to be muscular, well conditioned athletes to be successful in their given sport or style. At the same time combat sports athletes are often famed if they have ‘heavy hands’, or crushing grappling ‘pressure’. Perhaps paradoxically, we often see is that it is not the most muscular and well developed athletes that have the heavy hands, indeed sometimes it is the slightly overweight or deconditioned individuals. This hints towards something other than muscular development going on.
The 'Weight' in Technique

Weight = Release

Actually, in order to transfer our weight we need to understand how to release the tension that may be acting like a brake or stopping much of it before it leaves our body. This is the focus of the HeavyBody Foundations Course. HeavyBody is the process of releasing tension and connecting with the resulting freedom and weight that results. Once this has been achieved you feel MUCH heavier to your training partners and opponents.

The HeavyBody Process

To achieve the HeavyBody, we use specific techniques that utilize our the body, breathing, awareness and movement to find and release unwanted tension. This process involves methods of swinging the limbs (Suburi), breathing and connecting to the out breath, awareness, floor work and partner training. All of it is focused on helping us to identify and release unwanted tension. You will then be able to explore the feeling you get from this training in your martial art.

Its not just about fighting ...

There is another big upside to this training relates to our health and the rehabilitation of niggling injuries. As we go through the process of releasing tension we begin to find habitually tight areas, which are often either the source of, or caused by, injury. As we slowly release we begin to allow the area of the body to recover and heal.

    “ Internal work is often confusing, incoherent, and illogical. Many people step back after a period of time without achieving results, many others keep trying to figure out what are they supposed to do. If it's so difficult, why people still try to do it? Because the real results are just awesome, stunningly powerful, life-changing development. Everybody wants these amazing attributes! Heavy Body work is an amazing way to start to achieve this development of body qualities. It's very clear, very understandable, very stepwise work. Coach Chris Davis is kind, receptive, and enthusiastic. Martial Body has a huge amount of personal development behind, many many hours thinking how to help people to learn. No matter your style, no matter your martial background, I'm sure any martial artist or fighter can benefit from this work.”

HeavyBody | An Overview

  • Removing Tension

    We carry unwanted Tension around with us all the time and this limits our ability to utilize our weight. HeavyBody Training will resolve this.

  • Using our own Weight

    We use our own bodyweight to release tension and open the joints of the body so that they are freer. This produces deep health benefits as well as usable body mechanics for combat.

  • Healthy Joints

    HeavyBody training helps us to release tension around the body. As a result the joints will be gently released of tension or sticking points increasing range of motion and joint health.

  • Precise, Focused, Pressure.

    When your Body is constantly expressing the heavyBody attribute, you can target your weight to any point on your opponent. This can create crushing pressure.

  • Heavy Hands

    Far from being a 'gift' some fighters have , Heavy Hands are a quality that can be trained through understanding of softness and our ability to cast our weight into our target. But the first thing to get is a 'HeavyBody'

  • Aaaannd Relax

    Understanding the tension in our bedy, how it affects our movement, and how to resolve it has a big supplimentary benefit. It allows us to recognise and resolve tension so as to increase relaxation and reduce stress.
