Hook Punch
Drill: “Hit first, hit hard”; Pad holder holds focus mitts for advancing groin kick

Drill: 3-4 people (1 defender, 1 attacker for bear-hug, 1-2 attacker(s) w/ focus mitts),
Defender’s eyes shut (standing w/ hands on hips like Peter Pan), attacker bear-hugs defender from front (either arms trapped or free). Defender does bear-hug defense; Once defender reaches control position focus mitt attacker gets defender’s attention and calls for advancing groin kick followed by combinations described above.

Gun from the Side- in front of the arm (both sides)
Drill: “Friend OR Foe?”
Groups of 5-8 people; 1 defender, 4-7 attackers with guns tucked in waistbands (easy draw location). Defender stands in middle of mat as attackers walk randomly within in 8’ or less of defender; 1 by 1, each attacker takes turns “bumping” into defender (as if on busy sidewalk). Upon bumping into defender, attacker either extends a hand for a handshake (friend) or pulls a gun and put it to defender’s side in front of arm (foe); Attackers should add in constant verbal chatter to confuse and disorient defender. Safety-in-Training: “Bump” does NOT mean “body check” or “knock down”. Be careful of accidental head-butts. Defender must identify threat/non-threat and respond appropriately
