"My Love for MMA.....Is a Noble Madness."

Born Detroit Michigan,

I was raised in the Korean Arts by my father in Tang So Do throughout the 1970s and 80s.

Began Boxing in 1980 influenced by Marvin Hagler

Four Detroit Golden Gloves and 5 Detroit Diamond Gloves,maken it to the finals everytime during the 1990s.

I started teaching boxing in 1984 full time,after the 84 Olympics.

As with many old school boxing fans I was fascinated by UFC 1,and by the time the new Zuffa regime took over,I was a Pride fan and already devoted to MMA and merged my boxing training into Striking Coach for MMA fighters.

Mma still has a long way to grow in the stand-up department. I watch the young Striking coaches work fighters on the pads and I pull my hair out at how awful their training is. Even at the highest level in the UFC .....look. its simple.

How to measure a striking coaches worth is you watch how they teach......if the fighters last punch off a combination is his power hand and not the jab...their teaching their fighters bad habits. ALWAYS ALWAYS ALWAYS start with the jab, and end with the jab. And in the heat of battle that last jab will find its mark instinctively. They let their fighters drop the hands after each combo.....more bad habits.

Even when Striking a heavy bag,jab first and last. It's just sad that so many fighters are following advice of kids basically. How does a guy under 30 years old get credentials is my question.

For anyone interested in watching or your just bored...you can view me in action on my YouTube channel. @ shane hanke
