Class Notes – Aug 23, 2016 – Projectiles with TD 1

Instructing: Guro Joe C & Guro Lem

Attendence: Lance, Edward, Dinno, Dan, and Brian

Notes:

Tonight, we incorporated projectiles into the transitional drill 1. First, we went through the template for TD1. We then had them run through the drill by adding projectiles for each target. We later introduced trying to clear and then projecting into the target. Then, we added multiple attackers to the drill.

Class Notes – Aug 9, 2016 – Long Blade AK

Instructing: Guro Joe C & Guro Lem

Attendence: Brian, Dan, Dinno, and Vince

Notes:

Tonight we worked on long blade material from Atienza Kali. First we did some triangle and hourglass footwork. Then, we worked off the second count of the bolo evo 1. We used footwork to move out of the attack. Then we used passes along with the footwork. Next we worked on two-counting the attack. All these moves we tried to emphasize moving to the side or even to the back of the attacker. This made sure the attacker would be off balance from trying another attack. If the attacker would swing back (count 3), we would be ready with a tip-up deflection.

Class Notes – Aug 2, 2016 – 3 of 9

Instructing: Guro Joe C & Guro Lem

Attendence: Brian, Ryan, Asim, Mike, and Sid

Notes:

Tonight, we had the beginner students work on 3 of 9 tapping. Then we showed them left hand template.

The advanced students worked on feeding by having two feeders with each working on a specific side (one is clearing, the other with the blade), while the receiver cross taps and wipes their attacks. Later, they worked on true right. Same as above, two feeders working their own side. We switched it up by later having two receivers partner up while one feeder feeds 3 of 9.

Class Notes – July 26, 2016 – 3 of 9 Drill

Instructing: Guro Joe C, Guro Lem, and Guro Joe M

Attendence: Vince, Dinno, Brian, Ryan, Mike, and Asim

Notes:

In the beginning of class, we split the group to three different groups. The advanced students worked on true right. The intermediate students worked on 3 of 9 tapping. We reminded them to keep the flow of the drill without stopping. They were probably processing the information and thinking about the next move. But keeping a slow smooth flow during the drill without stopping and getting more reps would help their flow. For the beginners, we had them learn how to by doing the template and then working on feeding with clearing with the left hand.

Class Notes – July 19, 2016 – 3 of 9

Instructing: Guro Joe C, Guro Lem, and Guro Joe M

Attendence: Alex, Dan, Mike, Dinno, Vince, and Asim

Notes:

Tonight’s class we had everyone review 3 of 9 template with variations like right and left hand template, and both at the same time. We continued into tapping 3 of 9.

Next we showed them how to keep feeding with pressure but also trying to get the cuts with precision.

Class Notes – July 12, 2016 – Long Weapon Entry

Instructing: Guro Joe C, Guro Joe M, and Guro Lem

Attendance: Dan, Alex, Asim, Dinno, Mike, and Vince

Notes:

Tonight’s class we started with hour glass footwork from Atienza Kali. We worked the bottom half of the hour glass from top of the triangle to the bottom corner. Then we worked moving up the hour glass from the bottom of the corners to the top.

We had the Feeder 1 slash angle one and two. Feeder 2 steps either side to just be out of Feeder 1’s slashes. We later circled past Feeder’s slashes to get behind him for a counter attack. We then added tip-down deflections to the footwork. After working the footwork and tip-down’s, we added a counter to Feeder 1’s slashes.

Class Notes – June 28, 2016 – Counters to Single-leg Takedown and Multiple Attackers

Instructor: Guro’s Joe C. and Lem

Attendance: Brian, Alex, Dan, Lance, Dinno, and Vince

Notes:

Last week we didn’t have class due to the weather knocking out the electricity. Luckily, this week no storms knocked out any power. We continued working on countering the single-leg takedown. We reviewed how to use the wizard to counter the takedown. Then, we practiced using our head and then used a forearm to control distance. From there we tried getting the puter kepala. This technique was a little harder to simulate because of the clinching done with the upper body. Maybe we should try over committing to the takedown in order to get that head control for the puter kepala. Next we drew from concealment after the puter kepala and added another attacker with an angle 1 slash with a long weapon. Countered that attack with a pass to lethal entry. It was a nice class tonight. I think adding another attacker gave a good modifier to the drill.
