Session 3-20-11

Chris, Matt and I today…

2 rounds shadow boxing
4 rounds three count cadence drill
2 rounds partnered footwork drill
1 round freestyle footwork

We then spent some time working on a few old boxing gems…the Miske Twist and the Mike Donovan combo.

On with the kurtka…

We started our sambo session with two rounds of grip work followed by some work on:
Podvhat the Russian uchi mata
Ski lift throw
Failed ski lift into melnitsa(firemans) finishing with a hip lock

We then worked a for a short while on the figure eight movements prevalent in Russian weapon work using the club and the e-tool as examples into empty hands.

We ended the session with some savate versus knife, plying our various kicks against a knife wielding assailant.

The Miske Twist

  1. Hi Mr. Pfrenger,

    Thanks for the great posts! Inspirational and informative. Just one question-could you give a bit more description of the Miske Twist? Great picture I could hazard a guess but that would be all it is. Thanks.


  2. From “Shadowboxing” by Alpheus Geer:

    Miske Twist – Frequently one will become twisted around sideways to opponent. Throw left hand open across the face, following immediately with a straight right for jaw.

    Hope that helped and thanks for the comment.
