HeavyBody Foundations Course – My Review

The HeavyBody Foundations course is the first section in Coach Chris Davis’ new Martial Body System. The Martial Body system is an attribute-based approach to training. This non-denominational systematic method of training the body is not only revolutionary, but much needed by today’s martial artist!

Coach Chris has spent many years training with high level martial masters from several different arts, researching their approach, understanding and highlighting the commonalities between BJJ world champions, UFC fighters, Chinese martial artists, Koryu adepts and cleverly reverse engineering them into a cohesive, attribute based approach to building the ultimate body for martial arts.

The approach has been “specifically and painstakingly developed with the sole goal of creating real and lasting changes to how martial artists from any style feel to their partners or opponents, and how their body remains strong, healthy and able to perform as they age.”

The 6 qualities are presented in the MartialBody system are:

HeavyBody | StableBody | ConnectedBody | ElasticBody | SpiralBody | FluidBody

HeavyBody Foundations

The aim of the HeavyBody section is to develop the quality of heaviness through relaxation in martial exchanges. This allows the practitioner to fully utilize their connection to gravity and turn off unwanted tension in the body.

The course is broken down into 5 chapters, each complete with a series of introductory explanation videos, demonstrations and instructions for each exercise, as well as warm-up and cool down routines, and follow along routines covering all aspects of the training. Coach Chris also covers several examples of push testing designed to act as real time feedback for the process. All in all, an excellent resource for any martial artists!

As you will see inside the course, the exercises act on multiple levels and are designed to increase the level of relaxation, open up the joints, and condition and massage the tissues.

Coach Chris takes great care in explaining and demonstrating each exercise in detail as well as providing commentary as to how each one will develop the HeavyBody attribute and be useful in striking or grappling. I found myself getting up from my computer and turning the monitor around so I could work through the exercises with him as he was demonstrating on video – as they say, FEELING is believing!

HeavyBody may be the first foundations course, but foundation does not mean basic. It is, in my opinion, essential training for all martial artists, regardless of style. The exercises in this module are meant to be trained over a lifetime always coming back and plumbing greater depth.

My recommendation? HeavyBody foundations is a MUST for ANY martial artist’s library. Pick up this course NOW and get started training today!
