TRAINING. Swedish Activist Groups 201 and 203 gathered for joint martial arts training last week.
As previously reported, the Resistance Movement puts a great focus on training and self-improvement, which is particularly noticeable in Nest 2’s Activist Groups.
Martial arts and other physical training is conducted across various locations in the Nest every week, but a few times a month, Activist Groups meet to test themselves against one another and contribute to their personal development.
Due to the varied degrees of knowledge within the groups, with several people competing at club level and others only training weekly with their groups, it was decided to focus on punching techniques and boxing combos this time.
After an intensive warm-up, the session began and went straight into jabs, crosses, hooks and uppercuts in various combinations.
The now relatively large group worked very well together and the coach was more than satisfied with what he saw.
The technique training was followed by shadow boxing in 3×3 rounds, before concluding with boxing sparring.
By this point the training had lasted for over an hour. The plan was to call it a day and head to the showers, but the activists’ appetites were whetted and they wanted more. Instead, the day ended with group sparring, also known as a “hooligan fight”. This gave a clear indication of what a fanatical, hard-trained fighting organisation can really achieve.
