Tonight’s class we worked on reviewing battang tuhon 3 of 9 template. Most of the class were senior students so we also went over some teaching methodologies from Sayoc. We started going over the right hand template. Discussed about how to give constructive feedback when correcting technique. Discussed about the different responses within the drill: reflexive, conditioned, and correct responses. Then, we reviewed Receiver’s side cross-tapping. After the review, we made two lines to get drilling reps with everyone in the group. The group really liked that exercise and suggested we try it with transitional drills in the future too. Lastly, we went over left defeats right template.

Students continued working on the 7-Count Passing Drill, building on the counters to the Receiver counters (counters to the counters) from last week. Feeder Counters involved students identifying time/place to counter, as well as an understanding of how the Receiver counters work in order to best negate them.
New students continued working on Transition Drill 1 and installing 3 of 9, Scarecrowing the Vital Template.

Students completed review/installation of Feeder Counters of the 7-Count Passing Drill. While we do teach the “official” counters, both Guro Joe C. and myself have had the privilege of learning and training the system from multiple instructors so there were a variety (usually at least 2-3) options for each count. As brought up by the class and discussed, sometimes the various options may occur at different times within the Receiver’s technique or may depend on the Feeder’s range and speed. Lastly, students pulled both Receiver and Feeder counters from 3 of 9 Tapping.
Newer students installed and refined 3 of 9 Tapping, paying specific attention to targets, hand placement and body shifting/footwork.
Just Catherine and I today, We reviewed 3 of 9 tapping before adding true left. We then reviewed the left hand template before working on left defeats right. We ended with light free flow and draw work.

We reviewed 3 of 9 tapping before discussing applications for flashlights both in searching a structure and setting up your entries, lethal or otherwise. We also worked the flashlight into the first 3 counts of 3 of 9 tapping.
Just Chris and I again, We reviewed TDs 1-8 and all the various 3of9 iterations we could think of. We spent the rest of class reviewing and polishing receiver grips.
Attendance: Chris R., Catherine, Guro Joe C. instructing
No class last weekend for Easter break. Today we covered two more reflexive grab counters and reviewed 3 of 9 template and tapping. We emphasized the importance of initiating verses reacting. We also briefly discussed personal security in a crowded venue like the 1st Mariner center for the UFC fight tonight for those attending.
