Session 5-29-11

Just Matt and I today…

2 rounds shadow boxing
3 rounds boxing
1 round savate
On with our jackets for sambo…we focused mainly on breaking grips on the lapels and on the sleeves. From the broken grips we went for several different throws, more whatever happened to turn up than a planned set of techniques. We also threw in some Close-Hugg moves while we were already working on grappling.

We ended our session with a long bout of combat sambo…I bent one of my finger nails back halfway through the round. We finished up but it was bleeding pretty bad and felt pretty special so we called it a day. Still a very intense a good session.

On Friday Chris came out and we spent about an hour on boxing and savate, sparring with pretty good intensity…we also worked on some savate kicking strategies and combinations.

Last Wed Matt was out for Sambo and boxing with some combat sambo thrown in…we then worked on more navaja from the Med. grip and did some bouting as well. Most of the attacks were ripping cuts, those that were not were close to a boxing jab…great blade session.



Session 5-15-11

Been a little lax in getting these out…

Just Matt and on on Sunday.
2 rounds shadow boxing
2 rounds boxing
1 rounds savate
Next up sambo…We worked on fine tuning our back trip for about 15 minutes.
2 rounds freestyle sambo
1 round combat sambo

We then broke out the shillelaghs and worked the butt pass into chokes, strikes and disarms. We also did some work with a stick attached to the heavy bag on off hand strikes and bar smashes.

Last we worked navaja…lots of ripping motions using the Mediterranean grip from a low guard using a knife that is not locked. We also worked navaja against stick or club. Next time we will bout with some of these things worked on today…great session with the Spanish blade.

This was out first Sunday session in a while, with Easter and Mothers day, Sundays have been out. We had a few mid-week, day and early morning sessions mostly sparring, lots of boxing and sambo during these. Hopefully we are back on a good steady schedule.
