Video: Final Training Footage Of “The Coach,” Shawn Tompkins

This past August, renowned MMA coach and former fighter Shawn Tompkins tragically passed away in his sleep from a sudden, unpredictable heart attack at the age of 37, leaving a void in the MMA landscape.

Tompkins had called many notable professional fighters his students, but his core disciples were Chris Horodecki, Sam Stout (to whose sister he was married) and Mark Hominick. One of Horodecki’s sponsors, Gamma Labs, today released footage of The Coach working with The Polish Hammer just days before his untimely death. Watching Tompkins work makes it clear why he cultivated such a devoted following from his students.
