NEOHEMAS Session 5-18-14

Just Chris and I this week. While it is real nice to have a full house, we get a whole lot accomplished when we have basically a private session. We really get to focus on improving Chris’s skills and strategies during sessions like this plus I get a much better insight into coaching. I get to learn just about the same amount as he does.

2 rounds shadow boxing
3 rounds focus gloves
3 rounds boxing  (all rounds fought mirror image, Chris southpaw, me orthodox stance, 1st round Chris actively circle tot he outside, 2nd round I do the same and 3rd round we both try to circle and block the other.)
1 round freestyle foot work to allow my heart to stop trying to rip out of my chest.
1 round savate, again mirror image with active circling to the outside by both of us.
We then worked out coup de pied bas and fouette from the outside circling movement, worked on both catching kicks and not getting our kicks caught.
We ended the session with some work on sambo, two interesting anklelock variations and several leg lock counters to rear naked choke or back mount.

NEOHEMAS 5-11-14

Chris and I were joined by a couple of long distance folks, Cain and Daniel this weekend….

2 rounds shadow boxing
5 rounds focus gloves, lot’s of material to go over for the two visitors.
3 rounds 3 count cadence drills
New guys are always great…nice to have Chris get a chance to coach some today as well.
Chris then took us through a couple of defenses against a single leg take down and a few subs from these defenses.
Daniel and Cain were mostly looking to play with longswords so after we tortured them with our standard unarmed work we went outside and enjoyed the nuce weather with some steel in our hands.

 

NEOHEMAS 5-4-14

Just Chris and I this week…

2 rounds shadow boxing
3 rounds focus gloves
 4 rounds boxing
1 round savate.
All focus pad work and sparring was done orthodox vs southpaw. Chris the southpaw got to work on the benefits of being a south paw while i glued myself to an orthodox stance (normally I switch my stance). We payed special attention to his circling to my outside, keeping his lead foot to the outside of my every second.
After our round work we took a deeper look at the extended guard and milling and how they work together.
During our single round of savate I took a fouette to the liver. As I told Chris after the round, had I not been hit so many time in my life that shot would have probably put he away. A little tender today but feeling better than expected.
