Coach Notes:

  • Return every single punch back to your chin.

  • Although these rounds include basic fundamentals in stand up fighting, the basics should consistently be trained whether a beginner or Saikou (supreme) warrior.

  • When executing the knee strikes, slightly lean back to thrust your hips forward adding more hip power behind the knee strike.

  • If needed, slow each kick to follow the four steps of execution: chamber the leg, extend, recoil and ground the foot returning to fight stance.

  • When executing the round house kick, pivot the grounded foot to add more power behind the kick.
