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. One of the best ways to learn the move, cause you can actually see a fighter doing, step by step, this Brazillian Jiu-jitsu basic move.

Many people complain about the challenges we face in life. The battle begins in early days, when we learn to crawl and later, to walk. But after that, we’ve always been able to cover a much greater distance. There are two types of people: those who face new challenges in search of achievements and those who believe that we don’t need big challenges, we can just try to jump from one safe harbor to the other.

El Club de La Lucha Barcelona

First, let’s talk about the people who, upon seeing a problem, prefer to run right in the opposite direction. These kind of folk avoid challenges. And, if it’s possible, they will dodge them as Muhammed Ali would do with an opponent, with great skill. The avoidance of problems is their great specialty.

On the other side.

We have those that embrace the challenges. And they don’t seek problems, but rather accept them (cause problems always come). And they know that through the journey of a good challenge, in the end we always find someone mature, improved and experienced: ourselves. There’s people who understand that growth requires a minimum degree of discomfort. And, after a brief period of struggle, another moment of peace and accommodation arises. And so it is with all the learning.

But let’s talk about martial arts: which of the two kinds of people would enjoy the benefits of training? The correct answer is: both. Well, it is pretty simple. For you who loves challenges, a martial art represents a daily battle for self-awareness. You can overcome many challenges to get stronger. The goal is not to beat opponents, but to overcome the daily limits. Many people still don’t know their own potential until they start practicing a Martial Art.

Discover how far you can go.

And you can discover how far you can go in your search for improvement, and how much you can overcome your own limitations. But what about the ones who avoid challenges, what’s the reward for them? Everything. Because exposing themselves to what they fear is one of the best ways to overcome their weakness. This happens because the feeling of overcoming is unavailable for those who have never looked for challenges. By creating self-esteem and realizing, in practice, something that perhaps no one ever told them: that they can do anything.

Also, a martial art is practiced in a controlled environment where you can test yourself as far as you like. Your self-esteem will progress as you move through the belts and ranks. Until you realize that you have achieved more than a collection of challenges: but you have defeated your own fears. There aren’t greater trophies or medals than this.

Challenge your limits at El Club de La Lucha Barcelona, a place to improve yourself.

MMA is the fastest growing sport in the world. But, instead of what many people can think, it’s not just for professional fighters. Just as the sport spread across different countries, it also found an audience of fans eager to train. And we made a list of reasons to support your decision to get everything into the Octagon.

  1. It is perfect for the undecided.

Some days, you do not know if you wanna wear blue or red, if you like a juicy steak or if you will become vegan. Why would it be different with the fights? People who have never been involved in martial arts know very little about each of them. That’s why practicing a little bit of all may be great for you who don’t want to make another decision at the end of the day.

  1. Flexible in the gym, flexible in life.

Those who practice MMA normally face countless challenges in the training for the fights. The sport demands you different skills: being able to fight striking and defending like Boxe, using kicks and knees like Muay Thai, or even fight on the ground using fundamentals of Brazilian Jiu-jitsu and Wrestling. This flexibility of skills and thinking/planning can be very useful in your day-to-day life to deal with unforeseen problems at work and personal life.

  1. It is self-defense at its best.

If you like to feel ready for everything, MMA is your sport. Like Marco Ruas, one of the great pioneers of the sport used to say, “If you punch and kick, I grab it. If you grab it, I punch it and kick it.”

  1. If one sport puts you in shape, imagine a mix of at least three?

By bringing together different martial arts such as Jiu-jitsu, Muay thai, Wrestling and Boxing, you do a complete workout that works out practically every possible physical valence. A sport to make envy on triathletes, and they will probably avoid complaining to you.

  1. Efficacy is proven, benefits as well.

In an arena where two trained fighters face each other, only the most useful martial art techniques prevail. And that’s what you’ll learn in the gym. Leave the eccentric techniques to Jackie Chan or to geniuses like Anderson Silva. And know that you will train only the best part of many worlds.

Finding so many benefits in a single sport is almost as rare as finding a gym ready to deliver it all for you. Enter the MMA world right here, in Club de La Lucha Barcelona.

Boxing in Barcelona Gym. Boxing fight in Barcelona

1 – It´s not so hard: 

You don’t need to be a Mohammed Ali, or a Mike Tyson to learn the basics. With a little effort, and a good trainer, almost everyone is able to practice. Man or woman, old or young, tall or short, it really doesn’t matter. The most important thing is your willpower.   

2 – Never boring: 

Boxing is really, really fun. Most people that puts on a pair of gloves for the first time enjoy the experience. Hitting the focus mitts becomes a game and people savor the challenge. There so many interesting skills to master that boxing never becomes boring.

3 – The Inspiring Challenge

You can workout and watch good boxers train at the same time with you. You get to witness the impossible everyday in the gym and you’re constantly inspired to push yourself to new levels of performance. Boxing is a unique challenge, you fight your own limits. And what better than to be motivated in one of the hardest sports ever?

4 – Very relaxing

Boxing in Barcelona Gym. Boxing Training for Women in Barcelona.

You sweat a LOT. You punch the bag. Attack, defense, and lots of cardio training making all your problems go away. Boxing is an excellent therapy for the body and the mind. Boxing is a mental fight against whatever you want, and believe me, you can always win in the end.

5 – Excellent workout

Boxing targets the entire body, burn lots of fat and makes your heart pump. In every move, every punch, you feel more and more alive. As a great workout choice, boxing goes head-to-head with other types of cardio like running and cycling. And for most people, a lot more fun.

6 – Upper-body cardio

Think about it: most cardio focuses on the lower body. With boxing, your primary moves come from your upper half, making it a great cross-training option when you want to bust a running or cycling rut, or knock out some cardio that won’t tax your legs too much.

7 – Safe and complete

Boxing in Barcelona Gym.

Forget tire flipping and box jumping—boxing can be a safer (yet just as effective and demanding) alternative to some of the riskier heart-pounding workouts out there. You move all your body, and it gets you in shape faster than anything.  

8 – Improve your rhythm

Attack, defense, moving your feet and knees. You have to learn the correct order, find the “momentum”. It´s not just about doing, but WHEN you do. To understand the right moment to make a choice, make all your body work as a team.  No other sport training solely focuses on improving that rhythm, and coordination.

9 – Sharpen your mind

It´s about body and mind.  In boxing, your mind has to be as quick as your body to prevent being hit.Unlike any other sport, you’re thinking of offense and defense at the same time. For athletes, or anyone who loves the sport, boxing is a character-building process that takes mental toughness and overcoming fears.

10 – Earn Confidence

In the movies, Rocky Balboa teaches a beautiful lesson about willpower, resilience and moral strength. That´s all based in real emotions. Boxing is a great confidence booster, molding fighters out of average people. After boxing, other challenges in life seem much more manageable. Boxing improves your attitude, confidence, and outlook on life.

We hope you are at least curious about boxing. In this case, talk to us right now and put the gloves on! Come to El Club de La Lucha Barcelona, and discover the great achievements boxing can offer you. Here is the place for Boxing in Barcelona.
