A TYPICAL CLASS
A typical USP class starts off with a light warm up to free the joints, then cardio vascular exercises are carried out for a few minutes – you do not have to be super-fit as these exercises will be adapted to suit you but be challenging enough to help you progress.
Part 1 of the class, is training in self-defence methods, which may be defences against bearhugs, knife point robbery, dealing with multiple attackers and even defence against firearms.
Part 2 is pad work - punching, kicking, kneeing and elbowing soft pads to improve striking skill, power and to release your aggression and stress!
Part 3 is 'stress inoculation' training and involves some form of sparring, be it on the ground or standing up, or we might carry out some scenrario training or pressure testing drills.
This third part of the class involves heavier contact and more intense training. We understand this isn't everyone's cup of tea and not everyone can go to work the next day covered in bruises! Therefore, this type of training is usually kept until last, to allow you to give it a miss and leave early if you wish.
