3 of 9 Vital Template
3 of 9 Left Hand Vital Template
3 of 9 Tapping
Isolating Cuts 1,2,3 in the 3 of 9 Vital Template
Class started on time with review of the Salute. Jerrod Baugh had only been to one prior class and Tim Paris was in his first formal Sayoc Indiana Training Group class and had never been thru the Salute. After repping that we formally began class.
I had Justin Tate talk about Blade Passing / Drop Blade Protocols to the group and I went back and polished/cleaned up any areas he missed.
I then began 3 of 9 Vital Template in which Jerrod and Tim, both of who have ran the template prior, both needed work. I ran the template in the series of three cuts as I did the first class. This actually gave me a chance to watch for other things such as The Feeder not having his OSH on the blade while running the template as I was teaching the template primarily to Tim and Jerrod.
After the class was all running the template with success. I had the Receiver step back with each cut making the Feeder move forward.
I had some sticks with me and I brought them out talking about the differences in blades vs blunt objects.
Blades look for vital targets and sticks, blunt objects, search for bone.
I had them run 3 of 9 with the sticks but treating it as a long blade getting again cuts with the tip and not swinging the stick as if it were actually a stick.
I then went back to the blade running 3 of 9 tapping.
I first had them start out with Pendulum Tapping getting used to the tapping motion. No real intent on The Feeder but allowing the Receiver to be successful.
We then went to one for one with the first three cuts of 3 of 9. I demonstrated it first and everyone look confused. I ran it first with Ron then with Justin Tate. I had them pair up working it. I then went back to the other three running the same, first three cuts with bad hand working in the correct response, of 3 of 9. I had the three work in a group together.
