Weapon Evasion to Engagement (diary entry)



The sixth in the CCMA course on weapons for martial arts cross training was a revision of the past five lessons, moving into grappling with striking. We began using the single and double sticks, moving through postures and varying angle patterns as part of the warm-up. Then we moved onto evasive movements against the sticks and the knife
I introduced a simple pivoting response to attack incoming slashes with the knife and then built on it with unarmed strikes and entanglement tactics. We then moved onto some knife-on-knife drilling to build dexterity and tactile awareness.
The session finished with a revision of single stick/blunt instrument assisted takedowns.
