INTERMEDIATE CLASS (D1)
360 with Counterattacks
Choke from Behind with a Pull
Drill: defender stands with eyes closed; attacker comes from behind with anyone of these three attacks: 1) holding a pad for a back kick; 2) making a 360 attack with left hand only; 3) choke from behind with a pull. For attacks 31 and #2, the attacker gives a verbal signal. The defender looks over his right shoulder and makes the appropriate response.
NOTE: we ask the defender to look over his right shoulder, and for the attacker to use a left-handed 360, for simplicity’s sake. This avoids issues of defending on the dead side. If you want your students to deal with dead side defenses, you can eliminate this details.
