Work continued tonight on combat transitioning. We warmed up with movements from the back, seated, kneeling and footwork. After going through a few fundamental details, we added in punching combinations and kicking.
Next we looked at the hook-guard and how it worked within the first transition. We revised the half-guard/butterfly guard flow drill, which was then used as method to train the hook-guard/butterfly guard flow drill. Here we went back over attacking with a knee-bar. Everything was then brought together with the incorporation of striking throughout the transitioning.
The overall objective of this particular set of lessons to develop a strong attack and defence structure that is in harmony with efficient movement from all unarmed ranges of combat.
