Heavy Hands

We mention initiative an awful lot, but we've never taken the time to discuss it as a concept . . . until now!

On this week's Heavy Hands, Connor and Pat discuss initiative. What is it, how does it work, and how is it attained? Looking back at some of the best fights of UFC Saskatoon, including Magny-Silva, Trinaldo-Laprise, and Moroz-Letourneau, we analyze the ways in which initiative influenced the outcomes.

Initiative is often the factor that makes or breaks a given technique. We explore the all-encompassing importance of initiative, exploring the importance not only of "being first," but of getting the opponent to  do what you want them to, when you want them to do it. 

Then it's on to the Heavy Bag to answer a brace of questions from you, our beloved listeners.
