Why would a fighter want to train like a dancer?
Dancers have the best balance and footwork of ANY ATHLETE in the world. They train 10 hours a day doing nothing but balance and footwork. Imagine a typical ballet dancer trained from the age of 4 for absolute perfection. By the time he is 18, he is leaping through the air, spinning on one foot, and making it look easy. Hours of stretching, brutal exercises, intense footwork drills, and superhuman displays of speed and power.
You may be shocked to know great boxers such as Muhammad Ali and Sugar Ray Robinson also had a dance background. Mike Silver (boxing historian and author), mentioned in his popular book “The Arc of Boxing“, that the perfect body for a boxer was that of a dancer’s, with long smooth toned muscle. As a fighter, you might not care to wear tights and spin 10 times in a row, but you might want to know how dancers trained. What techniques did dancers use for such great balance? How did they develop those huge calves? What special footwork drills did they do all those years in training?
It’s no secret that classical dance training can be the hardest type of physical training in the world. A dancer’s body is completely sculpted from head to toe for smooth, powerful, and seemingly effortless movement.
Watch some videos of my former dance teachers:
- Ivan Terrazas – old video of his INCREDIBLE foot strength
- Gabriel Misse – INSANE foot speed and precision
- Brian Nguyen – watch my brother FREESTYLE on the street
- there are dozens more I haven’t listed…
The PROBLEM with typical boxing footwork drills
The footwork drills you see in boxing gyms and MMA gyms today are flat out ineffective. The majority of them are too easy or simply not organized in any logical manner. Where are the drills for stretching? Where are the drills for developing balance awareness? And finally, where are the drills for developing muscle conditioning and coordination?
All you see now is shadowboxing, jump rope, ladder drills, cone drills, and maybe some hip-twisting running exercises and that’s it. Footwork drills nowadays are too simple, too boring, and STILL don’t teach fighters how to balance and move their bodies. There is no systematic way to develop and challenge their bodies to move better.
Today’s footwork drills are still missing:
- Awareness drills – how to develop great balance awareness and control of your neutral axis.
- Complete conditioning of the legs – not just calve muscles and agility drills (missing internal leg muscles)
- Lack of slow motion work – to increase control and coordination, rather than simply raw speed & power
- Do not target “footwork muscles” effectively
What’s in the “Dancer’s Footwork for Fighters” training program?
You’ll get access to a comprehensive 10-day training program with 4 hours of video. You’ll learn many new footwork techniques, exercises and drills each day to completely transform your lower body and improve your fighting footwork! This is a proven training routine used by dancers for generations.
Think THICKER, STRONGER, FASTER legs.
You’ll finally have completely developed leg muscles for increased leg strength, coordination, and control throughout a wider range of motion. You’ll get access to an advanced training routine for superior balance awareness and rapid footwork skill development. You’ll develop a stronger and MORE FUNCTIONAL core to generate MORE POWER IN ALL BODY MOVEMENTS.
You’ll stand heavier, move faster, and punch harder!
Access to a dance champion’s knowledge
You will get access to one of the greatest resources in footwork training through my brother, Brian Nguyen, the USA TANGO CHAMPION. He has trained with the best in the world and won numerous dance competitions with his footwork skill and ability. He is a highly-regarded tango dancer and performer around the world. He charges over $100/hr for private lessons and is always booked in every city that he visits.
And Brian Nguyen will be sharing his secret drills and training methods in this special course. You will learn…NOT 10…NOT 20…but OVER 100 FOOTWORK DRILLS. Brian and I will start you off slow with the fundamental techniques and basic exercises (Days 1,2,3). Then work our way up to the more intense exercises (Days 4,5,6,7). And finally, we’ll finish with the impossible exercises (Days 7,8,9,10). You will get technical demonstrations and theoretical explanations every day.
This special footwork training is HARD.
The drills and exercises are ridiculously hard, and painful. This course is not intended for the casual fighter. If you don’t even like jumping rope, this course is not for you! I recommend this training only for serious athletes or people with a rabid curiosity.
The average person won’t even get past DAY 5. If you’re looking for a challenge and really want to take your footwork to the next level, this will give you the best footwork in the gym!
The 100+ footwork drills range from simple, to complicated, to hard, to painful, to the impossible. Many of you reading this will NEVER be able to do all of them. But nonetheless, your footwork speed, precision, and agility will improve tremendously if you put in the work.
If you can survive these workouts,
fighting footwork will be easy.
