Same hand block and counter – 6/29/10 – Tuesday Karate class
Sensei Plocharczyk filled in for Sensei Noia tonight and gave us a class full of self defense drills.
Get those legs warm….
We started with some simple kicking drills. With a partner, each of us threw alternating front snap kicks. After that we worked on alternating roundhouse kicks. Then came a drill where we did rear leg roundhouse followed up with front leg roundhouse.
Same hand block and counter….
We spent a good amount of time working on some same hand block and counter drills. One of the drills, that I really liked, started with our partner throwing a front hand jab that we block with our front hand and then immediately counter with a jab. We did a similar drill where instead of countering with a jab, we used a back fist.
The only problem with classes like these is that so much information is shared but it is hard to absorb and remember all of it. I know that I am going to be working on those two drills going forward.
