Drill: 1 attacker, 1 defender. Attacker starts outside punching range, Defender starts in fighting stance with eyes shut. Attacker verbally gets defender’s attention and waits for defender’s eyes to open. Once defender opens their eyes, attacker may burst in with either a single straight punch or a left/right combination. Defender uses appropriate inside defenses.

Roaming Attacker Drill: 1-3 roaming attackers with handguns & long-guns available. Rest of class works in pairs, bare-handed focus mitt combinations. Roaming attackers approach strikers only and put a gun in their back. Strikers defend, follow up with combatives, and return to striking once they assess that the attacker is neutralized.
