Lesson Plan Thursday, April 7, 2016

Stance and Movement
Left/Right Combination
Drill: Left/Right/pivot right/Right
Choke from Behind with a Push
Headlock from Behind
Drill: attacker makes either Choke from Behind with a Push OR Headlock from Behind

Hook Punches
Focus Mitts Combo #6 (Right-Left Hook-Right)
Backward Roll
Drill: partner holds focus mitts; defender starts in a crouched position; defender makes a backward roll, then comes up and works Combo #6 until the partner resets
Advancing Front Kick
Advancing Round Kick (like front kick) — emphasize using the ball of the foot
Choke from Behind with a Pull — discuss the possibility of using Round Kick with the Ball of the Foot

Focus Mitts with disturbing (pad holder strikes the puncher, then calls a combination)
Axe Defense v. Overhead — like stick defense, but emphasize opening outward with the defending arm so that the axe head moves away from the body. If you want to be very elaborate, you can tape rubber knives perpendicularly to the end of sticks to create an axe head.
