These courses are for the most hardcore martial artists. Those who want REAL strength and conditioning training that will level up their fight performance.
World Class Conditioning Course
I have learned a lot about conditioning throughout my career as a strength & conditioning coach working with high-level athletes.
I've also encountered many failures as an athlete following the so called "experts."
There were many things I didn't know then that I know now that I want to share with you.
Such as the aerobic energy system isn't stressed very highly during rolling. That high-intensity interval training can really be detrimental to your fight performance regardless of your martial art if performed chronically.
What many fighters don't realize is that hard training does not guarantee fight success. All hard training guarantees is that you trained hard.
Warrior Strength Course
Sure, getting a stronger squat, bench press, and deadlift can lay the foundation of strength.
However, when that is the sole focus of your training, it comes at a price:
What many fighters don't realize is that being strong in a few exercises doesn't mean you will have knockout power or be able to manhandle opponents.
Strength training is more than just being strong on basic barbell movements. It's about TRANSFER to combat sports!
Ultimate Weight Cutting Course
It's time to end the mental weight drops, insane dehydration methods, and starvation that only leads you to being so fatigued you can barely finish the fight.
Many fighters will take the approach of not eating for the days leading into a weigh in...
And this causes more problems that it solves:
If you take your health and performance seriously, you MUST take a modern approach to weight cutting.
But that information isn't readily available...
Especially by seasoned professionals like James Morehen, the teacher of this course.
James helps professional fighters (most notably Rocky Fielding) and athletes with their nutrition and weight cuts for a living...
So you know damn well you'll be in good hands and presented with the latest and most cutting edge information you can apply to your weight cut.
Unleash Your Inner Beast Mental Skills Course
I walked off the stage in tears...
It was 2014 at my third Commonwealth Games. I was in top shape. Had the best training cycle leading into the competition I've EVER had.
If you're familiar with the sport of Olympic Weightlifting, you get 3 chances at the Snatch. And 3 chances at the Clean & Jerk. If you miss all 3 chances for either lift, you don't register a total and are disqualified from the competition. Known as "bombing."
My confidence was sky high. Everything I had done to this point had me feeling the most prepared I had ever been physically. I felt the same way as I warmed up behind the stage.
But something changed as I was about to step on stage for my first Snatch attempt.
I was no longer my beaming, confident self.
I became NUMBINGLY nervous...
Like my legs were no longer attached to my body. Jelly... wobbly...
I changed my routine before heading on stage and got so psyched up that I started feeling ANXIOUS and my breathing became restricted.
I told myself "ignore these feelings" as I was trying to convince myself to make this lift.
I settle by the barbell and get ready to lift before the timer runs out.
Before the clock hit 10 seconds, I gave everything to get that bar overhead in one swift movement.
What most people don't realize is that performance anxiety can mess with your coordination... badly. We go into a state of "fight or flight."
I found out very quickly this was happening to me as I dropped the barbell in front of me.
THREE RED LIGHTS. NO LIFT.
I was DEVASTATED. I felt like a failure. I felt like I let my family and coach down.
These are all feelings I'm sure you've experienced.
Fast forward to the 2018 Commonwealth Games. It was my time for REDEMPTION!
This was my best total on the International stage resulting in a Bronze Medal, 6/6 lifts, and 3 South African records.
But how did I get myself to this point?
I was able to manage my anxiety with techniques I will share with you in this course.
I learned about the "mistake ritual" and how to let go of negative thoughts immediately.
I stopped overlooking visualization and learned how powerful it is.
I stuck with my routine to bolster elite level performance.
I learned how to use stress to my advantage and not as a threat.
My final secret weapon was learning how to psych myself up or down.
These are all skills I teach you within the Unleash Your Inner Beast Online Course.

A Note From Me
These online courses are everything that I've learned through hours of research and application condensed into actionable, video bites.
I'm not one to hold things close to my heart. I want to share the knowledge I've acquired because many people have helped and shared with me along the way.
My hope with these courses is that you will be one more combat athlete to move away from lung busting, vomit inducing "finishers," random CrossFit routines masquerading as strength training, and disgusting and dangerous weight cuts.
Instead, you will be able to embrace a structured strength & conditioning approach that will level up your gym and competition performances.
