Super late with report but I figured I would get it done before writing the one for tomorrow.
Just Chris and I on Sunday. He has an MMA fight coming up on the 22nd so lots of work to get done. There was plenty of of video of his opponent online so we went over what we saw and decided that the guy who he was fighting was definitely game but lacking in some crucial areas, most glaring was his boxing. Definitely tough and a guy who comes to fight but a little on the raw and wild side.
So what we did was work on standing sparring…1st 2 rounds of shadow boxing then 2 rounds of focus mitt work. Then 10 rounds of light sparring working through things rather than trying to just band through the round. Also my nose is still broke and getting drilled in the face is not up there on my list of things to do right now, not too mention, this is a bad time for Chris to get a cut. Just best to take it easy and work on the mental game rather than the physical at such a time as this.
After the sparring we talked more about what we did and made some simple game plans to follow.
We finished the session with some test bash…bought a bunch of coconuts at a auction last Monday, more than we could possibly use and some seemed a bit old. We found a simple stand to use and bashed the coconuts with: e-tool, mace and Cold Steel poly shillelagh. I had always heard that a coconut was about as tough as a human skull, don’t know if that is true or not but we had a jolly good time smashing in pretend skulls. All thee weapons did great as skull smashers. Will definitely do this again.
Looking forward to tomorrow’s session, gonna work on more boxing and burning a few ideas into the head.
