Saturday’s second lesson brought my two junior clients onto the sixth hour of their course on the clinch/stand-up grappling. We looked at linking techniques together and resistance-based training.
The lesson began with a series of wrestling-based callisthenics. We then moved onto partner drills such as bulling (neck and elbow tie) and pummelling (over hook/under hook). Next we revised the two-on-one, which led us onto chaining techniques together as well as breaking grips. We did some grip sparring to explore breaking holds and putting combinations together.
The lesson finished with a look at the arm-drag/double-leg takedown combination.
