Drill: groups of 3; eyes closed, attacker makes Choke from the Front; defender makes the defense; sometimes, the attacker says “Down!” and the defender must sit down (fall break, if your students know it and it is safe to do so); third person steps forward with pad; defender delivers a side kick, then gets up and does palm heel strikes until the holder calls “time.” Reset and continue.
