I just realized that I haven’t posted since last Tuesday due to a rather busy schedule. My wife is out of town for the summer so I’m doing all the stuff around the house that would normally be divided between us. As usual I forget that although it’s not a lot of stuff, it’s still more than I do normally so I have less time to dawdle.
To add to general frantic nature of my day Teacher moved up the summer classes one hour. So we get out early, but we have to get there early. This means I’m moving fast after work. I basically have enough time to change and eat a bit before I hit the ground running.
So I can’t actually recall what we did last week, and even last night was a bit of a blur, but we did have a couple of stand out moments.
We call generic multiple attack scenarios “monkey in the middle”. However due to the latest racial sensitivity problems I believe the word monkey is going to get dropped. It consists of 5 person groups in which one participant stands in the middle and the other four try to attack in a consistent fashion. It has nothing to do with real life, but it forces the person in the middle to contend with strikes initiated from every angle and not get tunnel vision for one person. It also forces us to work on strikes that are really effective versus flowery locks and such.
What we found out is that kicks to the groin and strikes to the throat were very popular, then came kicks to joints and so on. Very focusing.
