Third Boys’ Brigade Workshop (diary entry)

Boys' Brigade

I am learning more about my regular bookings with the Boys’ Brigade. The session includes students with a wide range of ages and with very different backgrounds. Some of these backgrounds can make coaching more challenging and it tests my desire to make my approach truly individualistic.


We continued our focus on self defence with the group and looked at multiple attackers. This is an unusual starting place for most self defence classes, but it cam serve as a good example of a likely worse case situation. You can then look at different areas in detail through single and multiple attack drills. We looked at both the fence and the cover, linking them both with the final exercise with the focus mitts. The session finished with a strategy one versus strategy two pressure test – striker versus grappler.
