We had someone return after some time off so lot’s of refresher material this week…
3 rounds shadow boxing
2 rounds sparring
2 rounds partnered footwork drills
We then worked on the simple 1-2 combo…straight lead followed by a straight rear using a drop step for the first punch and a shoulder whirl for the second. Then using the same simple combo we changed out method and power generation to that of Russian casting. We finished up our striking by adding a rear leg fouette after the 1-2 combo, stepping offline to deliver the kick.
Next out came the shillelaghs. We worked on basic attack and defense for about 15 minutes then followed it up with a bit one 1 step sparring. It had been a while for our part timer so this we just a basic refresher course.
We ended the session with some e-tool. We heavily geared up our right arms and stuck a knife in the hand and did multiple real time attacks with the knife…the goal was simple, use our e-tool trainer to stop the incoming knife attack. This is a great drill given the proper safety equipment but even with the gear and the trainer you can still get a sense of the horrific destruction a shovel can dish out on the arm
The part timer stayed by for an extra 30 minutes or so and we did some FMA, one of his main interests for many years.
