There's an old saying in the brutal, lightning-fast world of Thai boxing: "A good pad man is worth a million dollars." In Pad Man: A Video Guide to Full-Contact Partner Training,master martial artist Wim Demeere teaches you how to join that "million-dollar" league, no matter what combat art you practice.
In this comprehensive four-disc DVD set, Demeere uses focus mitts, Thai pads, and kicking shields of all sizes to show you how to train your partner for anything from a high-powered MMA match to a street fight. Using the tricks of the trade that he learned the hard way, he'll teach you the body mechanics that will let you avoid injury and prepare your partner to strike and kick his hardest against a reactive and rock-solid target. If you can't stand up to your partner's toughest moves, you're only giving him half a workout.
Demeere will train you to handle
high-line and low-line punches and kicks, ground fighting techniques,shoulder slams, stomps and rising strikes—basically every move that
your partner needs to burn into his muscle memory to compete at the highest level.
There's more to being a good training partner than just standing there and taking a hit— that's what
dummies are for. Wise up and learn things about pad training that you don't even realize you need.
Wim Demeere began training at the age of 14, studying the grappling arts of judo and jujitsu for several years before turning to the kick/punch arts of traditional kung fu and full-contact fighting. Over the years he has studied a broad range of other fighting styles, including muay Thai, kali, pentjak silat and shootfighting. Since the late 1990s, he has been studying tai chi chuan and its martial applications. His competitive years saw him win four national titles and a bronze medal at the 1995 World Wushu Championships. In 2001, he became the national coach of the Belgian Wushu fighting team. A full-time personal trainer in his native country of Belgium, Wim instructs a wide variety of clients in martial arts, self-defense and physical conditioning styles.
