Straight punches (high and low)
Rearward elbows (3, 4, and 5)
Drill: padholder calls out a number 1-5 corresponding to the number of straight punches (high and low) that the striker must execute in any combination they like. At random intervals, another pad holder will bump from behind with a tombstone, and after striking with a rearward elbow they return to striking the 1st pad.
Headlock from behind
Inside and outside slap kicks
Line drills (drive padholder back in straight line): 1 – R inside slap kick to tombstone, step L straight knee; return with retreating Jab/cross 2- R power cross, step left round kick; return with cross/hook combo
Reverse headlock standing
Drill: defender starts with eyes closed, 1st attacker either bumps with kick shield and holds for strikes or attacks with reverse standing headlock. After either “GO” command from padholder or successful defense, the defender runs to find 2nd attacker in the room, where they deliver strikes to a kick shield until “TIME” is called
Review advancing straight punches
Advanced fun (from front, assailant using off hand)
Drill: while defender strikes tombstone pad, attacker comes up and attacks with gun in left or right hand and a focus mitt in another. Defender redirects correctly, punches the mitt, disarms the gun, and returns to the tombstone. Repeat drill again but using additional “attackers” disturbing defender with focus mitts or kick shields.
