You find yourself on the homepage of Heavy Hands, the only podcast geared toward the technical side of combat sports. MMA, submission grappling, boxing, and kickboxing–it’s all here. Whether you fancy yourself a student, or a master of whoopin’ ass, you’re in the right place.
Heavy Hands is the product of Connor Ruebusch, a dedicated fan and practitioner of martial arts, and fight analyst for Bloody Elbow. You can read his fight and fighter breakdowns there on a weekly basis. On Heavy Hands, Connor acts as your host and guide through the many skills and techniques necessary to succeed in combat sports, with a particular focus on MMA. Connor’s specialty is striking, but that doesn’t mean grappling won’t be covered.
Connor is assisted by Corey Meyer, professional co-host and Tekken expert. Though Corey isn’t currently training, he was the man who got Connor to watch his second ever UFC event (he loved seeing Roy Nelson flatten Brendan Schaub on the TUF: Heavyweights finale), and introduced him to DREAM, K-1, WEC, and more. Corey mainly watches boxing these days, and specializes in complaining about the stupid things fight fans and commentators say.
