Just Matt and I today…a good day to do nothing but fight:)
Some days it is a good idea just to work on what you already know. It is easy to fall into the trap of being a technique collector. For unarmed, I like the following progression that we used on Sunday…boxing then add kicking then add the grappling. Then if we go further add the weapons in like we did…grappling is less attractive with the navaja pointed at you but for some reason happens frequently int eh e-tool bouting, most likely due to the slower speed of the heavier weapon.
2 rounds boxing
2 rounds savate
2 rounds combat sambo
The combat sambo lead us to a good deal of fighting against the wall both on the feet and on the ground. This lead to some work on using the wall to help get better position and or leverage both on the feet and on the ground.
1 round navaja and faja vs same
1 round navaja vs same
2 rounds of e-tool
The e-tool fight is much like the knife fight. often there is not way to come out unscathed. At time the only option was to come out of an engagement with less damage than you inflict.
