June 28, 2015, Fitness enthusiasts, mixed martial artists, and celebrities held a grand physical challenge at the UP Town Center for the second leg of the Earn Your Armour | Flight Form: Elite Edition.
The brainchild of coach Erwin Tagle of Ultimate Fitness – the “Philippine Bruce Lee” – “Fight Form” is a fitness program that utilizes various martial arts movements in a no-contact format.
The high intensity workout lets athletes practice mixed martial arts movements such as jabs, kicks, “sprawl and brawl”, and others without the need of a sparring partner. Fight Form is highly recommended for fitness enthusiasts looking to stimulate the fun and feel of martial arts without risking physical injury. Athletes are scored based on number of repetitions per movement within a set time limit, or the maximum time to sustain a particular movement or position such as a plank or squat.
