Lesson Plans February 25, 2012

BEGINNER CLASS
Front Kick to a Vertical Target
Knees
Combo: Front Kick Vertical Target, Knee (using same leg)
Basic Takedown Defense
Combo: Front Kick Vertical Target, Knee, partner with pad then pushes forward, defender makes Basic Takedown Defense to maintain balance and control.
Knife – Downward Stab (review from earlier this week)

INTERMEDIATE CLASS
Focus mitts — Right Uppercut/Left Hook
Basic Takedown Defense – Spinning on the Centerline
Combo: pad holder with focus mitts shoots in, defender Spins on Centerline, and then makes Right Uppercut/Left Hook (practice slowly at first, so the pad holder learns how to move and hold).
Ground – Trap and Roll
Ground – Side Elbow Escape
Drill: 3 people; defender on his back, the attacker makes a full mount; the defender must improve his position either through Trap and Roll or Side Elbow Escape (if he can get to half guard, that is good enough); the third person holds a pad AND COUNTS THE NUMBER OF SECONDS IT TAKES FOR THE DEFENDER TO SUCCEED; the defender then jumps up and must punch for that number of seconds, then drop down and repeat. Do several rounds. It can be brutal.

ADVANCED CLASS
Punches to warm up
Drill: 3 people; defender makes combatives to a pad, and then defends against Headlock from Behind or Bearhug from Behind.
Knife – kick v. stabs
Knife – Downward Stab; if the class is advanced enough, emphasize left handed attackers and defending on the dead side.
