Ronda Rousey and the arm lock: a powerful love story.
The arm lock has already made a difference to countless fighters. Perhaps the most famous of them was Ronda Rousey. Ronda was an impressive fighter for many reasons. For being the first female MMA fighter to ever conquer the mainstream media. For finishing the majority of her fights in the first round. But the most impressive fact is that Ronda won most fights with a relatively simple technique: the arm lock.
More than a BJJ classic: an end to the fights. Have you ever dreamed about going to a fight knowing the exact move that could give you the victory? It must be an incredible sense of security. Now, look the other way. Have you thought about going to a fight knowing exactly what technique would bring your defeat? This should make you feel not too confident. This is what Ronda’s opponents probably felt many times.
Ronda was a high-level judo competitor. A daughter of the first American woman to become world champion in the sport, Ronda had an unorthodox training at home. She said that sometimes her mother would wake her up in the morning with an arm lock. This may have shown the importance of always being ready. And transferring this confidence to MMA, after a successful career as a Judo medalist in the Olympics, was easy.
From Kodokan Judo to the revolutionary Jiu-Jitsu of Helio Gracie, the arm lock appears in many martial arts, simply because knowing it is a matter of survival in fights. This has everything to do with its many possibilities of use. Did you fall on top of the opponent? It’s an excellent way to finish him. Are you down, about to get a lot of punches? The arm lock can also save you in this situation. A chance to turn certain defeat into victory, and cast a bait so that the adversary, in a simple mistake, put everything to waste.
And we got good news: this technique is available not only for champions, you can also learn it from our new arm lock video tutorial.

Meet the powerful Muay Thai in Barcelona.
From Bangkok to BCN: the art of eight weapons.
An ancient martial art from Thailand, Muay Thay is powerful. Many professional fighters choose MT as an option for close, medium, and long range combat, cause it really works. It´s the tough fighting style of the “eight weapons”, combining your pairs of feet, fists, elbows and knees to attack with devastating blows. In other words: MT it’s a goddamn complete martial art: MMA fighters can confirm this.
As self defense, it’s an excellent option cause gives you a complete repertory of fast and powerful moves, each one strong enough to knock down a foe. Plus, you got nice skills in clinching, defending against kicks, punches and a good cardio. Muay represents power and one of the most complete martial arts you can train.
As Cardio, Muay is even better and places huge stress on your cardiopulmonary systems. With continued practice, your body will adapt to the demands of the sport, and improved cardiovascular performance is one of the payoffs. Just take some time to adapt the workout according to your level of fitness when you’re starting out.There is absolutely no shame in taking a break or modifying a drill to make it fit for you.

The majority of us accumulate a fair amount of stress during the day. Having an outlet for that stress feels fantastic and can work wonders for your mental and physical health. Let’s face it, when you’re pissed off with something(and there’s always plenty reasons to be), hitting something just feels good. Due to the fast-paced nature of the sport, you can’t trouble yourself with worry while training.
You’ll get hit in the face or mess up the drill you’re working on. Practicing a martial art allows you to focus on yourself and nothing else. I believe doing something regularly that detaches you from the daily grind helps you become a happier and more carefree individual. With so many reasons and an excellent martial art like MT, we hope you come and start soon.
Enter our Gym and see for yourself. Only in El Club de la Lucha Barcelona, a place that forge warriors.
