C can also drop pad and attack B with Headlock from Behind.

Gun from the Side, Behind the Arm
Knife – attacker holding defender with left hand
Drill: Scatter enough knives and guns across the mat so that only half the class will be able to get a weapon. Have students run in random directions around mat, backwards, forwards, zig-zag, sideways. On instructor’s call of “GO” students can attempt to grab whatever weapon is closest to them. Students who get a weapon will be attackers. Students who cannot secure a weapon are defenders and wait in passive stance. Depending on weapon, Attackers make Gun from the Side, Behind the Arm or Knife – attacker holding defender with left hand. Once all the defenders have been attacked, weapons go back on the ground and students return to running.
