Chris, Jeff, Mason and I today…
2 rounds shadow boxing
2 rounds focus gloves
2 rounds 3 count cadence drill
4 rounds of sparring
The above is what Chris and Jeff did, mason is new so I took him aside and got him going with some basic boxing materiall which he picked up on very fast.
We then placed out focus on dealing witht he straight rear punch, first with a shoulder roll then with the Russsian fisticuffs anvil drill and finally going fully into Mendoza’s guard with a chopper follow up. We ended our striking session with the concepts of Trinity strikes from Russian martial art with this combination, straight lead>collapse arm into elbow strike.extend are into hammer fist strikes. 3 strikes on the same motion with the same arm. Getting the mechanics down for power generation for this is always a challenge but after a few minutes it all fell into place.
We ended the session with some weapon work, reviewing Tim ANdersons knife cut pattern and looking into the hanging guard with thhe broadsword and comparing that to the Mendoza’s guard that we had been doing earlier in the session.
