Rodney's Crazy Monkey (CM) Defense system has revolutionized the way stand-up is both coached and applied. In this seminar Rodney will be introducing all the participants to his latest updates on the CM
Defense System as well as an overview for those who have not had the opportunity to
train in it. More importantly Rodney will be introducing a host of new cutting edge material to improve your performance in your stand-up game.

With the current successes of stand-up fighters in mixed martial arts competition, taking your stand-up to the next level is of paramount importance.

Rodney "Chico" King's C.I.A (Combat Intelligent Athlete) Seminar will cover:

  1. Crazy Monkey Defense System ­ An overview of the CM defense system as well as all the relevant updates that have occurred over the last year. Added to this Rodney will point out the most common mistakes people are making when using CM and how to fix them as well as breaking out of CM and alternative defenses you can use.

  2. Somatic Balance ­ After years of coaching experience, Rodney has found that most people are able to acquire relative "physical" technical
    skill in their stand-up within a short time. Yet even though they are able to execute the technique many struggle to maximize their performance, suffering
    from timing mistakes, and techniques that lack power and precision. The number one reason for this is a lack of balance. Most people think that due to this
    that there must be a whole in their game. To plug this whole they end up asking the wrong questions. A perfect example of this is questions relating to footwork training and which often abound the Internet. The secret to better performance lies in "balance" harnessed to footwork and the other
    elements of your game. Just practicing footwork will not enhance your game, understanding the "feeling" which is your body¹s thinking system and how to
    invoke it at will is the key. Rodney will coach you how to harness the power of your bodies thinking system and how to take your sparring to the next

3.Spatial Awareness ­ Knowing your relationship in space to your opponent is an essential key to optimal performance in sparring. Many people struggle
with this and tend to use techniques, in the wrong range. Knowing where you are in relationship to your opponent allows you better timing and awareness.
Rodney will take you through a series of drills that will enhance your timing ability coupled with a keen sense of awareness. Any good stand-up fighter knows, timing is everything!

4.Engaging Power ­ Developing power is in your mind (As is speed). Most people put considerably amount of time into physical training. They work on the old adage, "What you put in (meaning physically, blood, sweat and tears) is what you get out". This is only half true. In fact what it should read is, "What you put in your head is what you get out". Rodney will take you through series of mind gym drills that will not only enhance your power and speed but make you feel more confident to pull it of every time.

  1. Optimal Zone Training ­ In this section Rodney will give you the drills that will allow you to spar anyone and learn. He has used this in his own gym to great success. This concept radically changes the need to have separate levels of classes between amateurs and professional athletes. These drills will also introduce you to the "Gentle Art" of stand-up. Anyone who coaches stand-up this way will ensure that every athlete wants to spar, and enjoys the time doing it.

Added to this Rodney will cover what you should and should not be doing in your sparring and strategies to deal with different opponents as well as how
to harness the power of your mental game.

  1. 4 Point Clinch Dirty Boxing System ­ Striking out of the clinch is an important part of the stand-up game. Rodney will introduce you to his 4 point clinch boxing system and how to control your opponent while
    delivering powerful punches, knees and elbows.

  2. A whole lot more ­ As usual Rodney will infuse many more aspects during the seminar that will help you improve your stand-up game. The essence of this seminar is to take your game to the next level.

Rodney will also be available for a limited amount of privates during his stay in the USA.

Ask Rodney why he or his fighters aren;t stepping up to the Cape Town fighters?

why don't you ask him yourself?

" why don't you ask him yourself? "

Because I'm nowhere near South Africa anymore

"It might be the fact that Cape Town has an abundance of homo's and AIDS."

As well as the South African lightweight, light heavyweight and heavy weight mma champions (middleweight would be Chris Bright, but we consider him as one of our own:-)

Will Thoman Denny be there ?

The same fucking jokes in every single Rodney thread

^^ I actually always thought that the use of Rodney's name in fighting was a joke.

What an unfortunate name-association.

He's really got to call himself "Rod" or go by initials like "R.J. King"....or maybe I'm just an idiot....

Can't we all just get along

Go to his seminar. Tell him you want to spar hard with him. Post when you wake up or remember how to type.

Rodney will also be in Phoenix Arizona on June 9,10,11 for a seminar. For more info please email Rodney is a great person and is moving away from the tuff guy/training figters and moving into helping his athletes in all areas.

Funny you should say that, here's a post from the SBGi forum:

If you watch my KOTC fight with Wilson Goveia you will see that I utilized the CM with much effect.

anyone would benefit in their stand up game by showing up to this seminar



CM is what I teach all my beginners. I had a boxing background before meeting Rodney. I still use his CM structure much of the time. I also use regular boxing as well. I do my best to blend the two. My fight with Solomon was an exception. I have no idea what was going on in there LOL.

Let me reiterate what Rory said. Forrest and Rory learned boxing in a normal Western Fashion. The CM came later. Forrest has always liked the western approach to boxing a lot. However he will be the first to admit that he gets hit to much and seems to like it. Rory generally blends them very well however we really did not see that in his fight. In my gym I teach a blend of CM and western boxing but the base is always CM first.

I'm just surprised that he's not going as "Rod King" or something else. The name he uses is forever tarnished by THE Rodney King.

Rodney is the shit. LOL, can't believe losers are still making jokes on
his name.

"How come all the SBG guys who've trained Crazy Monkey don't use it
in any of their MMA bouts? Rory Singer, Forrest Griffen, etc.

Crazy Monkey seems like this year's Catch Wrestling."
