Kicking is a tremendous portion of current UFC light heavyweight champion Jon Jones‘ arsenal. His kicking techniques have served him well en route to capturing and retaining his role as the 205-pound champion.

At a past Paradise Warrior Retreat weekend seminar in Montreal, Jones led attendees through an assortment of kicking techniques. Check out the video above of Jones leading the class and teaching them portions of his arsenal.

The Paradise Warrior Retreat returns to New York City on March 8 and 9 at Renzo Gracie’s world-renown martial arts training academy located in the heart of Manhattan. Featuring some of the sport’s most elite fighters and instructors, this star-studded seminar is a once-in-a-lifetime chance for fans and athletes to train with some of the best names in the sport of MMA and kickboxing.

Jones won’t be one of the instructors at the March 8 and 9 seminar,  but there is once again a strong line-up of world-class instructors on tap.

The seminar will feature instruction by renowned MMA fighters: Chris Weidman (UFC Middleweight Champion), Frankie Edgar (Former UFC Lightweight World Champion), Renzo Gracie (Jiu-Jitsu and MMA legend). Additional instructors include: UFC rising star Edson Barboza, Marlon Morales (WSOF title contender and former Muay Thai champion) and world class boxing coach Mark Henry.

The PWR Martial arts Seminar is for everyone with or without experience. Based on our previous seminars, we encourage women and children to participate, and it could become a complete family experience with memories that last a lifetime.

    He should talk about his 84 inch reach and his freakishly long legs. And that fact that he’s 5 inches larger than everybody else and 30 lbs heavier at fight time. He has an unfair advantage over everyone except Gus. (Who beat him in my opinion 3 rounds to 2.)
