Doug Merlino delivers a knockout punch of a book with “Beast: Blood, Struggle, and Dreams at the Heart of Mixed Martial Arts.” Part history, part biography, and part adventure novel, “Beast” revolves around four high-level fighters training at one of the nation’s top gyms, American Top Team in Florida. The four men come from very different backgrounds, and although they fight with the same goal of winning in mind, their motivations are worlds apart. Read more

Would you lick the inside of your gym bag? What about the mats at your gym?

No! Of course you wouldn’t, because you’re a sensible person and you know that that’s just gross. But you might already be doing something just as bad.

That’s right, I’m talking about mouthguards. They’re easy to forget about. You probably pop yours into your mouth before you roll or spar, spit it out at the end of class, toss it into your bag, and then – what? Leave it there overnight? Stash your bag in your closet or car? Read more

You’ve probably heard about the five fitness trends gaining traction in 2017. Many of them share a theme: decreased reliance on traditional gyms.

There’s nothing wrong with heading to the gym to get your fit on. However, many people are looking for a new place to work out and finding it at home.

Having your “gym” in your living room is convenient for a few reasons. For one, you never need to worry about crowded spaces. Transportation is a cinch, and the commute can be measured in seconds and footsteps. Read more

People have been using edged weapons since the beginning of time. In recent years, there has been an increased interest in edged weapons, and how they can be used for personal protection. A large number of martial arts incorporate some type of edged weapon training into their curriculum. The training ranges from blade work incorporated into katas, to demonstrations and combat applications. Spears, swords, knives and more are all used. Read more

Hi there! My name is Sarah. I’m a martial artist (I’ve trained in Muay Thai for about four years and started Brazilian jiu-jitsu about eight months ago) and – I won’t say foodie because that implies an amount of sophistication, not to mention budget, beyond what I possess, but I certainly enjoy cooking and eating. So when I got the opportunity to test recipes from the Angela Gracie Recipe Book for this blog, I was happy to do so. Read more

Did you know that, according to a survey on Neilson.com, two of the most common New Year’s resolutions are to get fitter and healthier, or to lose weight? Isn’t it great that so many people use this time of year as the starting point to make changes that could really improve their lives?

…If only it really worked that way. As it turns out, these are two of the most frequently broken resolutions as well. Clearly this is something people want to do, or they wouldn’t be making the resolution in the first place. So what goes consistently wrong to keep all these well-meaning resolution-makers from reaching their goals? Read more

It was the knockout felt round the world.

At UFC 193,Holly Holm stepped into the cage with Ronda Rousey. At stake was the Women’s Bantamweight Championship belt. 

Tension between Rousey and Holm had already been high in the weeks leading up to the fight. Rousey in particular seemed prone to spouting off with her signature brash in-your- face confidence (or, as many people felt, arrogance). Insults were exchanged at the weigh-in, and it seemed that the rivals nearly came to blows then. At the start of the fight, Rousey refused to touch gloves when Holm offered. Read more
