    Question Freestyle Techniques

    This was posted in another area, but I thought it was a good topic in general: To the instructors out there, how do you teach the freestyle techniques? Do you teach the use of compound strikes with them, & if so, starting at what level?

    In my home school, we started learning freestyles immediately. I believe B1aHK and B1bHK and the B2 versions were on my yellow belt test. Freestyle techniques were always a part of our required learning for each belt. At the school where I'm teaching now, I'm beginning to bring that aspect into play. Though it is not a requirement at this school, it is a great addition to the current curriculum and the students love the element that it brings to working multiple attack scenarios.

    My personal fav's:
    RL/LR B6brsK6hK
    RR/LL B6HPspBK where H is a heelpalm to the stretched out elbow
    RR/LL B7rsKspCK
    RR/LL sKB1aKrh/flsbk (rh/f = ridgehand/forearm and ls is on a front cross in reverse)

    I wish we did more of these. I didn't even know they existed until I read "Infinite Insights."

    Since I teach the day classes I should re-read the material and start implementing them. Thanks for reminding me!

    The I.K.K.O. requires freestyle for testing.
    ie: Greenbelt has 96 freestyle variations in our curriculum.
