ADVANCED CLASS (D3)
Muay Thai clinch — work movement, add knees…and then try these things with marbles in one shoe.
Zombie Drill — multiple attackers; for lower level students, just have the attackers be “zombies”; for higher level students, include 360 Defense and/or Inside Defense; perform these techniques with simulated injury to one leg
Gun from the Front (2 hand technique) – perform this technique with an injury to one leg; discuss the desirability of the 1-Hand Technique, but the need for the 2 Hand Technique if you cannot burst forward effectively.
