Hammerfist to the side
Front kick to vertical target
Knife – downward stab
Drill: Each student grabs a partner. The instructor has the group close their eyes and hands about a third of the group a knife, with instructions to hide the knife in the back of their waistband. The group starts the “touching shoulders” drill, but at any time a student with a knife can start attacking with multiple downward stabs.
Focus mitts – pad holder calls combinations 1-10, but occasionally throws straight or hook punch. Striker does appropriate head movement to avoid punch and counters with combo #6 or #7
Defense v. hook (extended)
Defense v. hook (covering)
Defense v. high round kick (2 and 3 points)
Thai pads – with the pad holder wearing shin pads, run the same drill as with the focus mitts, but the pad holder can also throw a high round kick. The striker defends and counters with combo #6 or #7
Drill: each student gets a partner, both wear boxing gloves and shin pads. One partner attacks with a kick, 0-5 punches, and another kick. On defending the last kick, the other partner immediately returns with the same pattern.
Spinning heel kick
Sweeps with heel kick
Gun from behind (touching)
Drill – starting with the gun touching from behind, the attacker may respond in one of several ways: pull the gun away as the defender starts to move, fight the control of the gun after the defender latches on, or they can fall to the ground immediately after the counter as if knocked unconscious.
