But rarely would your MMA workouts be as thoroughly instructed for maximum MMA conditioning as they are in Scott Sonnon’s exhaustive (and exhausting!) Ultimate Conditioning DVD/video-download series. Three previews from this MMA conditioning series follow, showing brief excerpts from far-more-elaborate MMA conditioning programs geared specifically toward strikers, ground fighters and kickers and using everything from kettlebell routines to sandbags and Clubbells!

The 2021 Diamond Nationals took place on October 8th and 9th, the first time the prestigious event has been hosted since 2019. World class competitors gathered in Minneapolis, Minnesota to test their skills in forms, weapons, point sparring, and more.

In the early 2010's, Ken Warner (otherwise known as ZenInc on YouTube) always shared his "Top Five" on Facebook after major sport karate events. Reflecting on these posts has inspired me to write a top five article of my own for the Diamond Nationals, and I plan to continue writing these articles after each tournament I attend. Special thanks to Ken Warner for his contributions to documenting sport karate history. Without further ado, here is Jackson's Five for the Diamond Nationals.
