    So what did you work on in your last training session?

    My training is in my backyard. I worked on maintaining proper body mechanics as I moved through various stances. I also utilized what I've learned in Kenpo about stepping back into a neutral bow and applied it to stepping back into a Weaver stance at which point I dropped six out of seven 8" steel plates at 15 yards. With time and practice, my goal is to make that a perfect seven out of seven. To achieve that, I need to work on my footwork some more. Kenpo has definitely had a positive impact in that endeavor.

    It was biceps, triceps, two mile run day at the gym. Then I worked the heck out of Long 1 and the Slam Set.

    Last session for me was working on 3 of the last 4 things on the Cycle of considerations. Target, weapon and angle.

    I was exercising with Soccer. Transitioning from Indoor to outdoor which starts this weekend.

    Indoor the environment has a much more consistent pitch.

    The two targets I paid attention to were the pitch and the ball. The weapons the bottom (toward the front) of the heel for the pitch, and the instep for the ball.

    Angle for the heel straight down to align the bone structure of the lower leg for support during dynamic movement.

    Angle for striking the ball with the instep, near unlimited depending on the bounce of the ball off the pitch and what travel I was choosing for the ball.

    Worked context in standard techniques – which makes them more extemporaneous than standard.First we looked at Raining Lance, which isn’t my favorite for dealing with aknife, but it ROCKS in a very crowded space where you can’t retreat and youropponent is crammed into a wall or corner. Then we took Delayed Sword andstarted the ‘what-if’ training before the guy even moves into contact range –what if you’re against a wall (which is going to negate Distance being yourfriend and increase his chances of actually grabbing you), what if he cocks hisother hand immediately to throw? That was pretty fun, especially showing how simple it is to cancel the effectiveness of the punch he’s trying to throw with his left while at that range/positional reference (from the point of the block).

    Today was chest day and a more intense run.
    Then it was Long 1 and my primary techniques in the air and on a heavy bag.

    Tonight I will continue to work on the Slam Set.

    Working my way from compromised positions (clinch, mount, side control, etc.) back into positions where I can strike and dominate. The worst part is it made me perspire.

    Good to see you working on situations that aren't the typical self defense situations

    Different methods of exciting reverse punches on my 90 pound punching bag. For about an hour, then ten two minute rounds punching and kicking, followed by two tabata sets, one in the heavy bag and one on the BOB.

    What I meant to type, though my phone apparently didn't agree, as "executing" reverse punches, although I guess they were mildly exciting....
