THE STRIKING WORKSHOP
The Striking Workshop by R3 Tactical LLC, is a single-day immersive experience that teaches participants–regardless of experience-how to increase overall fitness, core strength, rotational speed and power by incorporating striking drills into workouts. Strikes are some of the most functional movements because punching and kicking with true power, speed and accuracy require people to utilize their entire body. This is why fighters are some of the most well-conditioned and powerful athletes in the world. With this in mind, The Striking Workshop is designed to teach participants to incorporate basic mixed-martial-arts, boxing and self-protection striking concepts into workouts. The course also teaches attendees to program these skills into workouts for greater variance. All this is done in a non-contact format that focuses on proper technique by using shadow boxing, focus mitts, kick shields and a heavy bag.

LEARNING OBJECTIVES
The Striking Workshop teaches participants to:
1. Achieve a fighter’s fitness level.
2. Add variety to workouts and training sessions.
3. Throw proper strikes and combinations.
4. Understand the role of the kinetic chain and the posterior chain in supporting athletic
performance and fighting.
5. Increase the speed and power of strikes, regardless of experience.
6. Learn proper striking bio-mechanics.
7. Know the 3 Striking Foundational Skills.
8. Safely run a training session involving striking skills and drills.
9. Learn an essential self-protection skill.
10. Effectively use shadow boxing, focus mitts and a heavy bag.
