Hammerfist to the side
Basic Takedown Defense (changing height, moving feet)
Choke from the Side
Drill: Defender starts eyes closed. Attacker alternates randomly between bump with kick shield for hammerfist to the side and choke from side. Defender must get to control position and deliver 3-5 knees (if kick shield is present) or 3-5 general combatives if kick shield is absent.
Intermediate (A1): Headbutts (forward, side, backward, and upward)
Bearhug Front (arms caught and arms free)
Focus mitt combos: defender starts with eyes shut, mitt holder places focus mitt very near defender’s face and verbally gets defender’s attention. Defender delivers appropriate headbutt followed by 2-3 combinations called by mitt holder.
Drill: Pad holder holds tombstone for broken flurries. Instructor yells, “GO,” striker grabs pad, throws it aside and bearhugs pad holder from front (arms caught or free).
