The UFC partners with sports conditioning institute called EXOS that purports to have a high level of intelligent athletic conditioning not done in most places. After watching the video above I generally agree with them.
I have always insisted on the use of holistic training to maximize ones goal. This includes certain truths with training, nutrition and true medicine. Facts that I have noticed are prevalent in the video shown above. As the true chinese monks trained in their Gong Fu. The use of energy manipulation in development, recovery and combat had largely remained an open secret and not generally accepted by the skeptical, arrogant, ignorant public and religionists.
Exos' use of acupuncture is a first and small step towards that direction. Perhaps, with little idea on the monumental significance on not just an athlete's performance, an individual's life, but an industry's evolution.
