Firas Zahabi is one of the most respected coaches alive now. The John Danaher black belt has long been at the helm of Tristar – Canada’s MMA Powerhouse.
There’s much to Firas’ style of both grappling and coaching and his philosophical approach is very well rounded. After all he is a philosophy major.
How to balance the weight so that’s it’s on bones and muscle and not on ligaments:
“When I’m carrying weight I need to never have it on my tendons and my ligaments. ”
“Front squatting will make you have a great guard. He’s talking about mobility to squat down really low in a front squat will help your guard not necessarily like a big lift… I think he was talking about having incredible mobility in your hips… The best guard players always have good flexibility in their hips. ”
“I feel better now than when I was 25. At 25, 26 I was really beat up. I was really hey my knees, my back, my neck. I was training every day twice a day it was gruelling. After I went to that system I came back out fresh and now whenever I have a little tweak or anything like that I take care of it immediately”
