WWE's Alistair Black/Tommy End - Striking Workout

Recommended Posts

Fun story. This fella is a professional wrestler from Amsterdam who used to work shows near where I live. Two of my friends who are way into wrestling got to interview him and have photos taken with him for their podcast they were doing at the time. 

He's one of my favourite professional wrestlers because of how convincing his striking is, especially compared to other pro wrestlers. He's got a background in dutch kickboxing, and started kickboxing because he wanted to be a wrestler, but being a kid, he wasn't sure how to start, so he took up martial arts.

He says himself he doesn't have the best technique, but man he's pretty good. I really like how he walks into his switch kick and he gives solid fundamental advice for Sheamus, who as far as I'm aware doesn't have much kickboxing experience. I particularly like how he reminds Sheamus not to fully extend his arm to prevent accidental hyper extension.

Not the sort of stuff we'd usually talk about here, but I thought I'd share it to show how muay thai and kickboxing can cross over into other professions outside of combat sports.

Here's his a combination of kicks, he has to pull them for his opponents safety:

And his very popular finishing move:

    • February 1st will present the first all-female card at Lumpinee Stadium, it's GoSport (the promotion that introduced women to the ring there) and doesn't indicate whether all these fights are 5 rounds or if some are 3 rounds. It appears to all be Thai women and the Main Event is Sanaejan (the first female fight for the Lumpinee banner was Sanaejan vs Buakaw, but wasn't IN the stadium due to Covid restrictions, so this will be her first time actually in the Lumpinee ring) vs Somrasmee, who was "Rising Star of the Year" in Thailand's Northern region last year or the year before.
    • All I know is according to some studies, the ketogenic diet can help women lose weight while also improving blood sugar management. Additionally, when administered as a supplemental therapy in women with specific types of malignancies, it may be advantageous. So a good keto diet should consist of roughly 75% fat, 10%-30% protein, and no more than 5% or 20-50 grammes of carbohydrates per day. High-fat, low-carb foods such as eggs, meats, dairy, and low-carb vegetables, as well as sugar-free drinks, should be prioritized. Keep overly processed foods and harmful fats to a minimum.
    • Thakoon Pongsupha, the head of Sasiprapa Gym in Bangkok, is launching yet another TV channel for "Entertainment Muay Thai." In the announcement it reads that fighters who "entertain" in their fights, both foreign and Thai, will have continued working relationships with the promotion. The details have yet to be announced but Thakoon is partnering with his son, Arm (both pictured in the article). I don't know Arm's previous experience with anything to do with either Muay Thai or TV, but assume he grew up at the camp, which is outside Thakoon's home. And as for Thakoon, he has decades experience of running a successful fighter's gym and has worked with foreign fighters almost all that time. He has previously worked with promotions, notably other "entertainment" category promotions like MX Muay Thai, which has disappeared but was one of the earlier attempts at Muay Thai 3 rounds, wearing MMA gloves and focusing on "action."
