Tonight’s class we resumed fine tuning Td1 and Td2. We examined the parts where the receiver was doing most of the work and movement. In Td2, the receivers part is what makes most of the movements of the drill. We made sure that the receiver was giving the right amount of control during certain parts of the drill. These control point could be considered a time were the receiver can change his position to become the Feeder/attacker.

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.

We started tonight with TD1 and it’s template. After going over the template for TD1, we reviewed the tapping for each target. Then, we practiced the two lines drill with at least 5 rotations. We got a lot of good reps tonight with different partners. Later, we went over the stick template and counters again. Last time we did this they requested that we go over it again. This time around, Guro Joe M, gave some good pointers to add for the drill. Maybe next time we can spar with the smaksticks to see how effective their techniques are coming along.

Tonight’s class we started with a review of Transitional drill 1. After that we went through the first 3 stop-blocks for Td1. Stop-blocks are used to gain time from the person with the blade. We discussed that they would be using some of these techniques from tonight for the upcoming classes. We talked about what they could carry in there personal med kit. Some of the suggestions from the class for a personal med kit were: tourniquet of some kind, compression gauze, chest seal, gloves, and surgical tape. Next week, we will try running through some common injuries from a knife and how to treat them.

Reviewed TD1 – No Clearing. We partnered up and reviewed the whole drill. Changed partners and practiced with different energy for most of the class time. We continued with changing the order and isolating the different techniques. We then had them free-flow and try catching the technique while in flow. Ended class with salutation.

Started class with salutation. We continued learning the isolations for no contact for TD1. We tried playing the King of the Hill again after getting more reps in TD1, but this time we tried changing some parameters. We made feeders work with only one or two hits to remain on the top. If the feeder didn’t get a good contact, he would be bumped off and the next person would be the new King of the Hill.

We continued working on TD1 – no contact isolation. Worked up to count 7. We switched partners and worked with different energies to see how the entry would change depending on size of the partner. After getting some reps, we decided to play a game “king of the hill”. We had the feeder stand as, king of the hill, while receivers were challenging. From a ready-stance with blades at there side, feeders would attack as receivers would tap. If the receiver lasted longer than five seconds, then he would be the new, king of the hill.
Ended with salutation.
Great class tonight!
