Offering Martial Arts, Karate, KRU Muay Thai Kickboxing, Self Defense, Fitness and Weight Loss to our community.

Those damn LEFTYS!! Here are some good techniques on how to put those left handers in their "right" place! :-P

Southpaws Suck....

I should know I'm a southpaw myself.

The reason southpaws are so tricky is because 88% of people are right-handed.

That means lefties are sparring righties 88% of the time. Whereas righties only encounter lefties 12% of the time.

So left-handers are far more comfortable dealing with orthodox opponents. And this applies across all combat sports.

Consequently, unless an orthodox fighter has properly trained for a southpaw the odds are heavily stacked against them.

Thankfully, there are several basic strategies you can use to neutralise southpaws, and I've put all them into a short video you can watch now.

Try them out and let me know how you get on!

It is with many emotions that I must inform everyone that we are closing Ashburn Martial Arts Center after this week. I will be taking the summer off but then will be searching for a new location to train at either another dojo, community center or church gym. I have met so many wonderful people over these 3 years and many have become great friends! Thank you to everyone that supported me in this endeavor! All the best! 😀👍
