Kicking Combinations & More Long Guard on the Ground (diary entry)


My junior lesson focused primarily on kicking combinations. We looked at putting kicks together, using punches to set them up and also finishing a kicking combination with a punch. A lot of time was spent of correct foot positioning between techniques, allowing for an easier set up for the neck technique and also maintaining defence. My senior class looked at more work from the long guard in submission grappling. This time we fought against a standing opponent, using the hook guard to set up sweeps and attack with a heel hook. The lesson finished with 3 x 5 minute rounds of specific and freestyle sparring.
