“You know, the strength and conditioning coach I’m seeing right now, he’s re-training me. He’s training my neurons, I mean the simple stuff you wouldn’t think to train. You never would think you would have to be taught to jump correctly. Everybody thinks, I can jump. No, there’s like proper ways to do everything, there’s a right and a wrong way to do everything, every movement, every learned muscle activity can be learned and unlearned so I mean it’s a process of learning the right way to do things and I’m becoming a better athlete.”
-Jon Fitch, UFC welter weight in an interview before his victory at UFC 100 from MMAmemories.com-
The above quote is from a man who was a great athlete before becoming a professional mixed martial artist. Fitch was a high caliber wrestler at Purdue University. We admire him as a fighter not only because he is skilled, but because he is tough as nails. His toughness, like that of any pro-fighter comes partly from his hard work ethic and partly from his striving to be in the best physical condition he can be in. He has only lost one professional fight and that was to Georges St. Pierre, perhaps the greatest athlete in the sport.
What does all this mean to you?
Maybe nothing. For us the message is simple. Here's a guy at the top of his game, always in top physical shape, always showing up to win, talking about getting "re-trained", explaining the importance of "moving properly". This just affirms the importance of what we're learning and coaching–proper technique, full range of motion, executing all movements with precision and maximum efficiency.
"It's a process of learning the right way to do things and becoming a better athlete"–Fitch is spot on. Good enough for Jon Fitch, good enough for us.
