Last week MMA Phuket hosted two grappling seminars. Brodie Farber, a veteran of both the WEC and the UFC spent two hours going over different takedown setups. He showed a great 4 takedown combination that allows you to transition from one takedown to the next depending on what your opponents counter reactions are. Over 35 grapplers attended the free Seminar. Video of the Brodie Farber seminar will be uploaded onto youtube in the next couple of days.

A couple of days after the Brodie seminar MMA Phuket hosted UFC Champion Contender Jon Fitch and Nate Moore. Fitch is a BJJ Black belt under Dave Camarillo, while MMA fighter Nate Moore is a fellow Purdue University wrestling alumni. Over 60 grapplers showed up for the Fitch Seminar. Fitch spents 90 minutes detailing basic wrestling takedowns that transition into submission opportunities. Highlights of the event included a 30 minute question and answer opportunity with those attending the seminar. No video cameras were allowed for the Jon Fitch seminar, but those wishing to see the techniques taught are encouraged to visit www.mmainstructional.com
