Lesson Plans Tuesday, April 9, 2019
Drill: Working in pairs, 1 tombstone holder, 1 striker. During the round striker throws broken hammerfist flurries. Instructor calls either, “standing,” “on knees,” “on the ground”. The pair must transition to those positions as quickly as possible while (preferably) maintaining the ability to strike. Hammerfists standing and from knees will be forward. Hammerfists on the ground will be downward while striker is in mount.
Choke from the Front (1-handed)
Roaming attacker drill: Have 2-3 designated attackers, rest of class working in pairs; 1 striker, 1 tombstone pad holder. Pad holder calls for basic strikes (groin kick, round kick, hammerfists, etc). At any point, attackers may choke any striker from the front. Striker must perform 1-handed technique, finish with combatives and return to pad work.
Side Kick (with & without advance)
Defense vs. Hook punch (covering & extended)
Drill: Roaming attacker. Select 1-3 attackers, rest of class working in pairs; 1 striker, 1 focus mitt holder. Pairs free-work combinations, including hook defenses. At any point attackers may approach a striker from the side with a kick shield. Striker will deliver a side kick, turn & face the attacker, then return to pad work.
Back Fall-break (high)
Ground – Defense vs. Choke from Mount
Jumping Spinning Back Kick
Review: Bearhug from Behind (Leverage on finger)
Full Nelson – finger strip
Focus Mitt Rounds (1min each): Round 1 – free work all combinations. Round 2 – 1 burpee before any combination. Round 3 – 30sec burpee burnout followed by 30sec straight punch flurry.
Drill: Roaming attacker. Immediately following the burnout rounds from above, pairs get back to free work on combinations. 1-3 roaming attackers may either bearhug or full nelson any striker at any time. Strikers must defend with leverage on finger or finger stripping technique respectively, finish with combatives, then return to mitt work.
