    Anyone ever do ice training?

    I can't see any potential benefits from doing this, apart from a slew of extremely amusing YouTube videos.

    Now you could do KB ice bowling. Swing KB, don't let go, see how far you get pulled behind it

    Speaking of unstable surfaces: What is it about some places where the trainers feel a need to put late-middle age, out or shape ladies on a bosu with 5 pound dumbells?

    Sorry, I was watching it last night and I truly don't get it.

    Training on ice makes sense, but using kettlebells for it might not work well. Fighting on slippery surfaces might come up (or simply crossing them, whether it's a tactical situation or not). Not entirely sure how to go about training on ice, so I don't know what to suggest. I do know if someone is climbing mountains or gets lost in the woods, it can definitely come up. Fighting on a wet floor might make things a bit harder & be a difficulty that wasn't predicted until it became an issue (fighting with knives, for instance, could have that effect).

    JasonL.Ac- Why do you say that? Because the people here don't have information/recommend doing that or was it my post? Don't want to come off self-absorbed, but I was curious. The references to training on the ice that I've heard about are all combat-related. Obviously, if someone is crossing ice for whatever reason, the skill set could come in handy. Just thought I'd clarify that, if that was the case. People do ask plenty of martial arts questions on this forum & a lot of people multi-task. That way, their training has a more broad result & is more efficient.

    My view is that if two people are fighting (for real) on slippery ice they are both at the same disadvantage. But the person with better conditioning, reflexes AND LUCK wins. As for kb training on ice I would not do that. The risk is way to high. Training should be safe - but challenging. Same with training the TGU on ground covered with garbage, broken glass, boards with rusty nails, toxic waste and all other unsafe debris found in any garbage dump. You could say that you are training to fight in that type of dangerous situation - but the potential for serious injury outweighs any real-life training benifits. Train safe allways, but be mentally prepared for any dangerous real-life event where you have no choice. With smart training you have a choice..Dennis
