Prayer acknowledging Christ as the center of our lives and our training
With our standard warm up and stretching, we’ll include slow kicks focusing on the front and side kicks.
For the first half of the class, we’ll be focusing on two defensive drills. Pads will not be used, but are optional if you feel more comfortable.
The first drill we will learn is how to counter a blitz technique. This drill will help to learn how to get out of a fast and effective strike, and counter it with a backfist or a punch.
The second drill we will learn is how to jam a side kick technique. This drill will teach how to jam up your opponents side kick which buys you enough time to strike.
We will perform these drills in three, two minute rounds with a thirty second break. During those breaks, we’ll be doing exercises.
During the second session, Jeff will focus on the slip drill and another technique to be determined.
We’ll be performing these drills in three, two minute rounds with a thrity second break. During those breaks, we’ll be doing exercises.
From here on out, Granada version one has been rendered obsolete and Granada Version 2 will be the standard for our final drill of the night.
For those that may not know what Granada is, it is a drill that pushes your endurance. For the first half of it, you punch, elbow, anything you can with your hands all the way across the room. Once you get to the end, you fire off 10 seconds in rapid punching, then strike with three hard punches.
The second half consists of nothing but leg techniques including knees. Kick the pad all the way across the room with any kick you want, and then at the end, fire off 10 side kicks as fast as you can, and three hard side kicks at the end.
Moses answered the people, “Do not be afraid. Stand firm and you will see the deliverance the Lord will bring you today. The Egyptians you see today you will never see again.” (Exodus 14:13)
