Check out this informative video from Tristar head coach Firas Zahabi. In this video, Zahabi goes into detail on the gameplan going into a fight against a bigger and stronger opponent.
The caption for the instructional video reads:
“How do you fight a bigger stronger opponent is maybe the number one question I keep getting on this channel. Im been meaning to make a “How to fight and Bigger and Stronger Opponent” episode for some time now.
“This will be the first of many I hope, If this video gets plenty of likes I will make sure to stay on this topics with varies pointers on how to fight the big and strong not only in the stand up realm but also on the ground. Look for future videos on how to defeat a bigger and stronger opponent in Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu, Striking and regarding takedowns.”
Zahabi says in the video, “I really believe that when you fight a taller opponent, you shouldn’t change your game too much. You should just rely on different tactics. You should know what weaknesses and what strengths a taller man has and learn to exploit their weaknesses and avoid their strengths.”
Zahabi goes into fine detail like he does with all of his instructional videos and shows exactly what he does and explains everything with the reasoning behind his techniques. In the video, Firas spars with two partners that are bigger than he is to detail his instructional tutorial.
Firas Zahabi is known as one of the best coaches in MMA, training stars such as Georges St-Pierre, Rory MacDonald as well as rising star Sage Northcutt getting some training in at the Montreal, Quebec, Canada-based gym.
