Soundtrack to Sparring


I am going to be reprinting some old classic entries from my previous blog called The Angry Grappler. It will chronicle the evolution in my understanding of martial arts.

There is a reason why fight highlights have music, because there is always a rhythm to a fight. It can look like a Waltz, Heavy Metal, Hip Hop, etc. I was thinking about that today because music is always played whenever I did kickboxing or boxing or jiu jitsu. Its away to get people energized and moving. When people slow roll it looks like an opera. There is this song by Vast called Thrown Away. That's what I want my sparring highlight song to be. Not so much fast, but as far as rock songs go, it has a lot of movement, a very back and forth sounding song, makes you not care about who's winning or losing, just give and take and scramble and go for broke. If you listen to the song you will know what I mean, its a song made for sparring and it was the soundtrack to an old fight highlight which may still be online for a fight of the year with Steve Berger vs Aaron Riley.
