If you’re thinking of sending your kids to the Lyon MMA center in France, be prepared to expose them to…let’s call it unorthodox Yidikes Yom training techniques, like getting smashed in the middle with a giant tire.
Maybe they’re training for the sequel Rubber?
Yom also likes to hang them upside down like little bats before bludgeoning them into the bread basket with a punching pad. Or knock them off the ground as they land awkwardly on their little ankles because pain doesn’t exist in this dojo.
Neither does common sense.
There’s no shortage of bizarre training methods in the martial arts, with Tony Ferguson and the disgraced Joshua Fabia leading the pack. I just don’t know why kids – who aren’t competitive fighters (except for those poor kids) – should be exposed to this kind of abuse.
Here are some additional clips compiled by the Sherdog forums:
Ever since those clips started making the rounds, Yom has come under fire on social media for his treatment of students.
It’s abuse, not conditioning, those poor boys…
I pity people who blindly trust so-called trainers who have no idea how to train themselves.
Literal child abuse, who does this to their children? Repugnant.
This is the kind of bullshit people do when they don’t know how to condition athletes. It does literally nothing to condition these children and only puts them at unnecessary risk of injury. Embarrassing and sad.
Other viewers supported Yom’s techniques.
I’d rather my kid take this training than be on the streets going through other training…(drugs, alcohol, gangs, getting beaten up!!) so what they go through a rough little training they will know defend themselves! You better believe it!
I love how people criticize him for putting these kids through training like this, like someone is going to be lenient on them when they really fight.
I’m going to make a crazy assumption and say that everyone who hates is American because we just have to be offended by anything that’s not our norm.
It’s nothing compared to the octagon or the boxing ring preparing them here for the pain they will have to endure in fights (and also in life).
You’ve heard both sides…what’s yours?
