Openmat

Between training  and work, I’ve somehow found time to whip up an application which I have personally found very useful in MMA training. The name isn’t concrete, but for now, I’m calling it “openmat”.

The primary goal of openmat is to allow people training in combat sports to track their progress and capture information learned in training sessions.

Here’s a short preview of openmat’s early features:

Openmat is live here.

Moves

The moves area allows you to capture any information relating to an individual movement: anything from a jab to a berimbolo.

Plans

This is the part which I am really excited about: plans allow you to chain move sequences together to map out your game plans.

Tag your moves appropriately, e.g., “submission”, “sweep”, “punch”, etc., and the plan visualizer will group move types using nice icons and colors.

Calendar

Keep track of training drills,  seminars, competitions, gradings, etc., or simply take general notes on training sessions (I like to detail my superfights here, or interesting sparring bouts).

Profile

The profile area allows you to recognize your developments in training by adding achievements and milestones.
