Yes, the set was condensed down to Brian's core teaching method for stand up.

Hi Matt! Long time fan here.

I've noticed that you and other SBGi coaches take pride in your strong boxing base. What made you choose boxing over other forms of striking(like kickboxing or muay thai)? How do you guys tie boxing in with the rest of your MMA game plan(clinch range and ground). What advantages do you believe boxing presents to the MMA competitor compared to all of the other forms of striking?

 Our base in Portland has always been boxing. Regarding Brian's coaching versus Rodney or anyone else, the thing with Brian is that he has spent a lifetime around Pro/Am boxing gyms, and he has absorbed a lot of wisdom from those corner men and trainers. That information is priceless, and can't be circumvented by any "system". So enough said on that.

Regards boxing versus Muay Thai (and that really is the main choice), the first thing to note is that not all SBGi's work more boxing then they do Muay Thai. Steve Whittier's gym Nexus (East Coast SBGi) has a strong Muay Thai base. For us in Portland it's been boxing. Secondly, regards MMA, if the athlete can't throw strong hands yet, then adding kicks in an MMA perspective almost never leads to good things. 

In terms of Brian's approach, and our approach in Portland as it relates to MMA, the emphasis is on movements. It's 90% movement, 10% striking. We want our athletes to move, hit, move again. For most fighters trading blows with 4oz gloves isn't a gameplan, it's a roll of the dice. And that is true regardless of your system.

I agree with Matt 100%.

The last few years we have been focusing on a game plan called: Move - Attack - Finish.

The finish part usually being - move out on an angle, turning the opp, a takedown, power kick, or drive into the clinch.

This focus has really started paying off for my young fighters.

That and a strong focus on my righty/tighty - Lefty/loosey circling game. : )

I'm always dumbfounded when I watch MMA fights and see fighters circling into their opponent's right hand.. WTF?
