Just Matt and I today…
We started off the session working with the sparth axe. Going over
some of the material from last week plus some material from Silver.
Rather than risk our lives again, I made two spart trainers, wooden
shafts with leather heads, still pack a wallop but not deadly. making
some good headway here.
Next we dug into some sambo and worked on the lesson plan from last
week that never got done. After two rounds off balance/grip drill we
worked on three main concepts:
1 A very wrestling like single leg with a jacket grip set up
2 A drop knee throw and the step over counter then a rolling kneebar
to counter the step
3 A lateral trip or Pancake throw
We ended the session working with the e-tool for about a half hour.
Just the basics, simple attacks and defenses…only high percentage
work done today.
Earlier in the week on Tuesday Chris came out and we did lots of
footwork, sparring and timing drills.
