Choke from the Front, 2 handed Pluck
Drill: A/B Drill: Non-compliant attacker with Takedown Defense. A’s are defenders. B’s are attackers. B’s can give tap and A makes 6 straight punches OR apply Choke from the Front, 2 handed Pluck and then disengage after follow-up combatives OR apply Choke from the Front, 2 handed Pluck and make mimic a takedown during follow-up combatives (for safety, have students attempt to wrap high up on the waist rather than shooting low to knee level).
Uppercut Punch–emphasize adjusting the length of the uppercut to distance of the target; a standard close uppercut has palm facing self, if target is further away the pinky rotates out and angle of the arm becomes more obtuse to ensure striker is still making contact with first two knuckles.
