More work with Level Changing (diary entry)


Today’s junior and senior lessons both focused on stand-up Mixed Martial Arts. The junior class introduced the level changing concept and the basis for the live sparring drills that can be done using this strategy for creating false fight patterns. We cover the downward angled rear straights and jabs as well as the two shove hooks. The senior progressed on after a full revision that included setting up shovel hooks and head kicks on retreating opponents. I then brought in two new combinations:

Cross to the body/lead hook to the head/double leg shoot
