Class notes: rev the wrist

3 drill:

No energy just feeling the shapes.
Change detail - pull the lap to stop him getting the hand out to defend. Do not make the elbow ornamental, it needs to travel back whilst the forearm pulls. Do not stop the elbow as you will loose a lot of controlling energy. Crash in with the backfist to put the pressure on his defence and have him on the back foot.
Bong sau reminders - shape and where the pressure release valves are. Martin also discussed the concept of where your hands should not be in 3 drill or clinch - they need to be at least a thumb to index finger span away from your chest.
Absorb in defence and release in attacking the energy

Take down from the change - anti rev the wrist and pull into your side, other arm, put the armpit over the top of his arm. Weight down putting pulling him to where his feet are not. Elbow to the sky and replace with the forearm into the back of his upper arm.
Fold the arm for the chicken wing - head turn to stand him up, slide down the arm to DWL then release to shoulder control. Martin showed it all as a lock flow.

DWL from the front and on the ground.

(off the change in the 3 drill) Upward shoulder rotation. Do not let the grip loosen on him. Keep it tight and do not let the wrists bend, keep them straight or even a little anti revved as you punch the hip and elbow through quickly for the shoulder rotation.

Ground: reach over and around to get the fingers on the meat of thumb. Pin the hand, keep the 90 degree angle and go for the DWL from side control. Get his elbow on to his hip to close off the DWL.

I have searched and searched but can't find an image of how Martin showed the DWL on the ground. See if you can spot what i am talking about and notice our modification. For what it is worth I have 4 years of grappling experience and not been shown this variation. It is the most painful variant that I have experienced.

Here is a lovely image showing the shoulder control, again similar to our but with slight variations. I just think it is great to see old photos of the same stuff we are doing today.

Punch the arm through deep, magic bones up, push the shoulder away, squeeze the elbows together.

Again the type we did last night is hard to find on the internet. Here is a similar variation; the shoulder is being pushed. Most images show hands/wrists clasped. Notice that the guy in the image is not yet using his magic bones although is looks tight as anything!

Boxing sparring drills:
Jab and counter jab
Jab counter jab followed by the occasional left hook.
Jab countered with a jab and cross or jab and lead hook. Defender needs to use correct small and tight motions to defend. Nothing big.
One attacking with punches, other defend with motions, parrys, blocks and grappling in standing.
