Beginner Class (A2)
Palm Heel Strikes

Choke from the front (1-handed)
Headlock from behind
Drill: Group of 4. 1 striker, 1 tombstone pad holder, 2 attackers. Pad holder calls for palm heel combinations, elbows, and groin kicks. Attackers choke striker from front or headlock striker from behind. Striker defends and returns immediate to pad work.
