There’s the old saying, ‘failure to prepare is preparing to fail’ and I am sure there are many students that make it to lunchtime on day one of the Warrior Masterclass course, their lungs bursting, and realise that their preparation efforts have been far from ideal.
This year we aim to help put a stop to this feeling. Speeding through all four of the Warrior Phases in 2018 faster than a Gun Rush bullet, Jason Bonthuys has joined us this month to dish out some essential advice on how you can prepare both your fitness and your lifestyle ahead of any BAA course in 2019.
Jason, Chief Instructor at Martial Art World and 5th Degree Black Belt joined as a student on Phase I back in May 2018 and boy has it been a mountain for him to climb, even with Jason’s incredible foundations in fitness, he has had to change his training and specifically adapt his schedule to ensure he performs to the highest standard on the BAA courses.
What we want to point out is that you don't have to be at an elite level of fitness to do our courses and neither do you have to be a high-level martial artist! We take people at their own level. What's important to realise though is that the Warrior Masterclass is a 90% practical course and you'll need to improve and maintain your stamina to get through it. These fitness exercises have been designed so that they can be performed by anyone at any fitness level.
Over a two-part series, Jason who is now up to Phase IV of the Warrior Masterclass will share his essential fitness advice on how to prepare and maintain that Warrior stamina.
