Children Anti-Grappling with Forest School of Karate (diary entry)


Forest School of Karate booked me for their sixth When Parents Aren’t Around lesson. We are at the first part of the anti-grappling section. The previous lesson concerned adapting and the open mind tenet. This lesson covered similar material covered for the Matsuri Dojo. Students began the lesson with a discussion on the role grappling plays in my approach to self-defence and the warm-up largely consisted of striking, covering and exiting drills. We then went through some simple clinching holds and positioning such as the collar and elbow tie, over-hook/under-hook clinch, double-leg takedown and sprawl/spear knee strike.
