Lesson Plans Thursday, January 10, 2013
BEGINNER CLASS (A1)
Kick Vertical Target – after the basic lesson, practice giving the kick to slight angles on either side.
Combo: Front Kick Vertical Target/Knee (same leg)
Choke Front (2 handed) — experienced students should practice the defense against an attacker whose elbows are bent. The elbows can be bent downwards or to the side.
INTERMEDIATE CLASS (A1)
After Warm up, review all Level 1 and 2 self defense quickly
Focus Mitts: Left/Right
Drill: eyes closed, any self defense from Level 1 or 2 — try to include headbutts in counterattacks BUT ONLY WHEN POSSIBLE (learn when to give a headbutt)
Sparring: slow fighting, hands only; less experienced students should make straight punches only; more experienced students should fight from an opposite stance.
ADVANCED CLASS (A1)
Thai Pads: combos 1-4; HOWEVER, before the kick, the striker should pivot to the side. For example, for combination #1, the striker makes a left jab, then steps to the left and pivots, then makes a right round kick.
