Punches- Straight Punch
Front Kick (groin) £
Front Kick to a Vertical Target £
Drill: Combative Stations: Pad holders stand in one line with strikers in front of them. Each pad holder holds for one combative the entire round (punches, Front Kick Groin, Front Kick to Vertical Target, Knees). Striker throws for the combative on the pad in front of them for 30 seconds as hard and fast as possible. On instructor’s cue, striker line has a 5 second break and rotates to the pad to their right and begins the new combative for 30 seconds. Depending on numbers, instructor can make multiple lines of pad holders and strikers, add a Ground and Pound station, and/or a station with a plyometric, i.e. 2 punches and a push-up, Front Kick Groin and a jumping air squat, etc.
Advanced Technique: Knife – downward stab
Drill: Half the class has curved kick shields and the other half has a knife. Students randomly scatter the pads and knives across mat. On instructor’s call of “GO!” students begin running in random directions anywhere on mat. On instructor’s call of “DOWN!” students who touch a curved kick shield first get to throw Ground and Pound strikes and students who didn’t get a pad must do burpees until instructor calls “TIME!” at which point students return to running. Instructor will also call “KNIFE!” Students who get to a knife get to be attackers and those who could not grab a knife in time stand in neutral to be attacked.
