  • Denis Kang trains at M.A.I. Dublin
    same time At first I thought we were getting attacked but after the pictures and the autographs they headed off chuffed with themselves Denis trained at our D 15 Dojo and I held focus mitts for him and the body shield We also drilled some techniques Denis did a lot of shadow fighting and used the exercise bike too He is a true all round mixed martial artist and it was great to watch and train with someone of his caliber I would have loved to have gotten pictures of Denis training at MAI but he was trying to focus on his fight and none of us wanted to bother him He walks around as a natural light heavyweight but he fights at middle weight so he had a fair bit of weight to reduce and all of his training was designed to do this Because it was his last week of training before the fight he couldn t risk getting injured and he mainly focused on cardio I ve had to lose weight for competitions in the past but Denis was very disciplined and managed to cut a lot of weight He had to lose over 10 pounds just 2 days before the weigh in I brought him to a sauna at a large Dublin gym to help him lose weight Everyone must have thought we were complete weirdos because he was sitting in the sauna amongst the regular gym members while wearing his rash vest and fight shorts I was trying not to laugh and I don t think he thought anything was odd Denis stuck to a very strict diet and he had to stop drinking water and eating 24 hours before he weighed in During this time he also had to give several interviews and get

  • Robert Devane's MMA Training in Montreal
    especially the grappling and wrestling I mainly trained at Tristar Gym which is run by Firas Zahabi Firas trains very high calibre fighters including GSP and he is straight talking and takes no crap in the gym Outside the gym he is really down to earth relaxed and funny In the pro class I attended I was told there were 7 fighters there who were currently under UFC contract I don t know if there are many gyms in the World who could say that All of the pro fighters do their conditioning training with John Chaimberg I don t think he s that famous yet but he s going to be because his mma training routines methods and techniques were great and I can see why his fighters are doing so well I will definitely be incorporating his training into my plan I also had the opportunity to attend an MMA show which was held by Eric s gym Force Extreme Actually the moment I arrived Eric told me that I would be fighting at the end of the week at his show but as things turned out I never got an opponent or a fight The show was great but I was absolutely blown away by the gym I have never seen a martial arts facility like it and I wonder if Ireland will ever reach the same level It was amazing Huge and equipped with the very best of everything I know everyone wants to know about GSP so here it is Yes he is as nice a guy as people say he is Actually he s nicer He approached me first and right from the start it felt like I knew him for ages He picked me up from my hotel to bring me training and

  • ROBERT DEVANE APPLIES TO THE ULTIMATE FIGHTER.
    m hoping they will see all the Martial Arts experience I do have and give me a chance You don t know until you give it a go DEREK Why the fighting name change THE MAN I ve been The Executioner for the past 15 years and that suited that era and what I was doing at the time I m pushing forward in a different direction and I think it s time for a change Right from when I was a kid I was called The Man Devane and it s funny because I always resisted it Now I think it fits perfectly and it helps people to correctly pronounce my surname laughs DEREK How did you get into MMA THE MAN Well MMA has been around even before it was known as MMA When I was a kid we would always spar within the rules of the system we were studying at the time but then when the instructor wasn t looking we d try all of the stuff we weren t supposed to We d just call it no rules sparring and make it up as we went along I m sure this type of thing happened in nearly every club around the world which is probably why so many people are into MMA DEREK What does your training consist of THE MAN At the moment I try to train twice a day 6 days a week Running weight lifting bag work pad work grappling sparring and drilling techniques It s great to have something to train for as it really increases your motivation DEREK How do you get the time to train that much and run two professional Martial Arts studios THE MAN MAI was set up 8 years ago and for a good few of

  • Kickboxing Siblings Black belt grade
    Martial Arts Incorporated in Dublin 7 years ago Originally the pair wanted to simply get fit and learn self defence Neither of them thought they would ever achieve more than that but they worked very hard and eventually passed the 6 hour grading process to attain their well deserved black belts Keith and Louise fight competitively but their bravest move came when they were given the opportunity of teaching martial arts full time for M A I Both gave up their respective careers even though there are very few people in Ireland who make a living from martial arts They are now currently celebrating their first year anniversary as professional instructors We never thought that we would be black belts or instructors and being able to work at something we love is fantastic said Louise It s a very rewarding job and we can relate to all the nervous people who start because that used to be us Keith continued What about their future I m really looking forward to watching our students progress and gain as much out of kickboxing as we have Keith said and I can t wait to bring martial arts training to more men women

  • MAI versus Pankration Kickboxing
    Everyone fought really well and the experience was invaluable There must have been a few people with very hoarse throats the next day from all the shouting I m not going to give a blow by blow account of each of the fights because the DVD does a better job of that but I would like to mention that I thought Eric from Mongolia had the fight of the day I felt very sorry for his opponent and I could hear his groaning above all the cheering Overall MAI excelled and we won 9 fights lost only 3 and drew 5 There was a big build up to the Super Fight and the entrances seemed to be enjoyed The way I look at it is this the audience is there to be entertained So hopefully they liked my For a few dollars more entrance It is very rare to see 2 Big names in Martial Arts in Ireland willing to put their reputation on the line and in front of their students but we did just that I felt that there could have been more action involved in our fight but it was up to the discretion of the referee to stand us back up if there was stalling holding Both of us did try a lot of different submissions and it was close a couple of times It was a very technical fight from start to finish At the end of the 2 x 5 minute rounds the fight was declared a draw Even though I wanted the win a draw wasn t bad because we both actually won It was a great day for everyone and for both clubs Everyone fought very well The experience was invaluable for everyone and on the strength of that event I can

  • Robert Devane one hundred fighter kumite
    Robert Devane coming out in a gorilla outfit and scaring the crowd He battled his way through opponent after opponent underneath the very hot ring lights for 2 minutes each round and without any breaks Robert was in flying form for the first 50 rounds and made it look easy There were a few short demonstrations by fellow instructors from Martial Arts Incorporated and Robert was back in the centre of the boxing ring again for another 50 rounds without any breaks Despite the fact that Robert had fractured a bone in his foot a week previous he still managed to entertain the crowd with his arsenal of techniques flashy kicks and humour There were some very tough opponents and fights from men women children who battled Robert adding up to 3 hours and 20 minutes of non stop fighting When Robert successfully completed the 100 rounds it was announced that he was to fight 101 rounds and his last opponent was to be none other then renowned Irish Martial Arts expert Declan Kidd who also refereed the whole event The crowd really got behind this fight and the two Martial Arts warriors put on a show At the end
