On Thursday night I continued my preparation of a teacher’s work for their fourth dan grading in Practical Karate. Although I possess no qualifications in karate, the service I provide is strictly in relation to kickboxing style focus mitt work and the sparring content, which is identical to the MMA format.

We set up a strategy for the freestyle focus mitt work having last time looked at the set combinations. Together we developed our own combinations in the punching only category and the punch/kick category that will be blended in with flash-pad and defensive cues. After this we did 4 x 2 minute rounds of hand strikes only, hand strikes and kicks only, clinching striking only and ground-fighting only from positions.
