CSPS Training Log–PT Session 27.01.2013

IMAG0196 (2)

Sunday saw one student’s return to regular training after a few weeks over Christmas, and so we got straight back into it with training the basics in new and interesting ways – biomechanical drills, specific and generalised movement concepts and their application, etc.

As this student has two-hour sessions we had plenty of time to get through a lot, and so we broke back into some aggression-fuelled drills involving use of the shoulder, elbow striking, hammer fists, knee striking and I don’t even know how many other striking methods. Taking an initial contact as a reference point, we used a set framework of movements to efficiently train the different muscle groups of the body to work together efficiently to present a functional combative response.

What that means is, the pad got bashed hard, fast and lots!

We also went through some sensitivity drills using a (training!) knife and then finished with an open-ended finish where we went through some concepts around striking with the knees and how to use that tactically with a biomechanical awareness to gain useful advantages over an attacker. All in all, an excellent session and some good progress made!
