Drill 1: Groups of 2; 1 curved kick shield and 1 Striker. Curved kick shield holder holds for 2 Advancing Straight Punches or Round Kick (they both cover a longer range than regular Straight Punch, but Advancing punches cover distance and Round Kick .

Drill 2: Groups of 3; 2 curved kick shield holders and 1 Striker. Holder 1 holds exactly the same as in Drill 1. Holder 2 can give Striker a tap from behind at any time. Depending on hold, Striker makes an Elbow 4 or Elbow 5, then turns and faces and makes 4 Straight Punches with Retreat. Striker resets to face Holder 1.

Defense v. High Round Kick (covering)

Defense v. High Front Kick (redirect)

Drill: 5 for 5 defend the High Round Kick (either 2 or 3 point block or covering) OR High Front Kick.

Drill: Both partners touching shoulders, A can attack B with High Round Kick or High Front Kick. Switch roles.

Final Drill: Peripheral Vision Training! Groups of 3. A can attack B with either High Round Kick or High Front Kick. C can stand to either side of B and hold up fingers for A to call out that number. A’s goal is not to turn their head or take direct line of vision off B–remember, peripheral vision! As A gets better at identifying numbers, C can make number recognition more challenging by keeping hands inside their silhouette instead of holding up high, or using two hands.

Knife – defense v. upward stab

Defender always attempts to control immediately after initial redirect, but makes Defense v. Upward Stab if Attacker is too fast.
