FIGHTING INJURED WEEK THEME

BEGINNER CLASS (B3)
Combo: Right Round Kick/Right Knee

INJURY DRILL – wrap an ace bandage around one leg at the knee to keep it from bending OR put marbles in one shoe; make combinations while on one bad foot or leg
Reflexive Defense v. Front Kick
Outside Stabbing Defense v. Front Kick
INJURY DRILL: perform these techniques with an ace bandage wrapped around forward knee, or marbles in the forward shoe.
ADVANCED CLASS (D3)
Muay Thai clinch — work movement, add knees…and then try these things with marbles in one shoe.
Zombie Drill — multiple attackers; for lower level students, just have the attackers be “zombies”; for higher level students, include 360 Defense and/or Inside Defense; perform these techniques with simulated injury to one leg
Gun from the Front (2 hand technique) – perform this technique with an injury to one leg; discuss the desirability of the 1-Hand Technique, but the need for the 2 Hand Technique if you cannot burst forward effectively.
