Tuesday night saw my teacher consultancy continue through the stand-up combination work. We revised the very lengthy combination three, which involves using punching combinations to deliver powerful rear leg round kicks, and combination four that is mainly made up of kicks and also include a superman or cobra punch before moving onto combinations five and six. As with my Monday night client, we looked at ways to adapt these combinations for individuals who might not be able to pull off the high kicks or any kicks at all due to health-related issues.

Combination five and six incorporated a lot of footwork into their sequences. Number five involved switch-hitting and a foot shuffle wherease number six was completely hand combinations, setting up for a spinning back or hammer-fist.
