Blair, Rick, Scott, Dave, Chainsaw
We started moving Scott into phase two tapping. We all would tap into the arm bar position and apply various strikes and transitions. More advanced students (Blair, Rick, Dave) were working on free flow into armbar using pads for the strikes and forearm guards for percussion hits. They also liberally applied Royal Guard footwork and techniques into their controls and destructions. After striking and hammering on their partner they would also look to get their own blades or their partners other blades into play through flow.
Scott, Chainsaw and I progressed as follows.
Strikes from the arm bar position included:
-Over the shoulder mandible angle punch
-Over the shoulder forearm sheer and head stretch
-Inside forearms to the back of the neck
-Thumb eye jabs
-elbows to various points (xiphoid, liver, spinal/cranium, ribs) for effect or for balance
We had to back up briefly and teach Scott various ways to transition his controlling hand into other positions.
Pressing on we worked on various ways to deal with the opponents free hand
-Smashing it up
-Body rotations to keep their hand away and ineffective
We worked on various follow ups after destroying the opponent with strikes
-Receiver grips, heart is the obvious option but returning to middle thyroid is also effective.
Next we looked at some lower line balance disruptions while still maintaining control of the opponent.
-Royal guard sweeps
-Arm drags / rotations
We experimented with some head turns and manipulations
-From underneath with knife hand going behind back
-Head drag backwards via eye sockets (reverse puter kupala)
-Head stretched out (making opponent press back)
-Transitions into standard head/neck turns
We identified that Dave has trouble finding head turns in free flowing organic movements (as opposed to in drill) so we have something to work on in the near future.
