Inside Defense vs. Straight Punch Low
Drill: Partners. 90 second round. Straight punches to head at 30% speed, open hand punches to body at 100% speed. If A can touch B’s stomach, B owes 5 round kicks to be paid at the end of round all in one go. Switch.
Basic Takedown Defense/spinning on centerline
Round 1: Free work with combinations 1K-4K
Round 2: Pad holder can mimic takedown at any time. Striker makes basic takedown defense, makes knee, and spins on centerline to 2 knees.
Round 3: Same as Round 2, but pad holder can now apply sloppy clinch and active resistance after spin on centerline to knees. Striker must maintain balance and attempt to stabilize clinch. On pad holder’s call of “BREAK!” Striker will disengage clinch and make Combination #8 (Rear uppercut/lead hook/cross).
Ground – side mount position and strikes
