Earlier this month I presented my workshop on strength and conditioning for MMA athletes. It was held at Alliance MMA here in San Diego and we had an awesome crew of over 20 coaches, trainers, and athletes. Everyone had a great time, learned a lot, networked with like-minded professionals, and had a great workout as well. Take a look at a few clips of the event and a couple photos of the attendees in action!

2013 workshop dates and locations will be announced soon!


Here’s a couple photos of the event.
