Drills-Fast Defense

In this drill we want the students to understand that a fast and simple defense is always the best.

Begin by having the students spread out around the classroom and face a partner.

Side A is going to throw a jab or cross at Side B. Instruct side B to use the fastest and simplest defense, which would be a parry. Perform 5 to 8 repetitions and then switch sides.

Next, switch techniques to have Side A throw a low front kick, and Side B to counter with a simple shielding motion. Perform 5 to 8 repetitions and then switch sides. Remember to emphasize how easy, fast, and effective this defense is.

Finally, have Side A throw a high round kick at Side B’s head. Teach the student a simple, easy to apply, and fast cover motion to block the kick. Perform 5 to 8 repetitions and then switch sides.
