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.
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 left defeats right with forward pressure and then applied this idea to 3 of 9 tapping. We focused on forward pressure from the feeder and tight seams from the receiver. We then added two blades to the receiver in forward grip and focused on not cutting yourself in the transitions. This furthered the idea of tightening the seams. Class ended with free flow.

We continued installing 3 of 9 Left Defeats Right and added some structured intensity. We focused on maintaining proper range and taking the feeders ground with each counter instead of retreating or trying to make too much space. We also tried having the receiver (or feeder 2) starting the drill from the draw and drawing in reverse grip.
