Chris and I today….
2 rounds shadow boxing
2 rounds focus pads
This training session was devoted almost entirely to fighting from and early pugilistic attitude…Mendoza. Using the extended guard to close and open lines, setting up counters, just generally making the other guy fall into your game plan with slight guard variations.
We worked on drawing the hook by taking control of the centerline, countering with a raised elbow with an inverted fist strike on the inside…we also lowered the guard a bit to invited a straight punch which we caught using Mendoza’s guard following with a chopper then a straight rear. We payed extra attention to the concept of throwing head and body back for defense.
We ended our session with some work on four quadrant punching.
