Notes:
We warmed up with drilling 3 of 9 tapping and TD1. We went over TD2 so everyone could get on the same page. Later, we reviewed 7 count passing drill. We went through TD1 and 3 of 9 to see where we could pull off one of the techniques from 7 count passing drill. Nice class today.

Notes:
3 of 9 true left
Transitional Drills 1 - 6

Today we went through 3 of 9 w/tapping and true left. In this true left drill, the (1) Feeder's left hand also has a blade. When clearing (2) Feeder's tapping hand, the (1) Feeder hit's the target with left hand.

Also, we reviewed each transitional drill (1-6) switching sides, Feeder/Receiver, to get reps on both sides. Next time I'll have to go through each target with them to make sure they know what shots they are getting.

Northeastern Training Groups Session: Feb 28, 2016

I had the pleasure of training up at, Tuhon Pat Consing's, Kapitid's Academy in Pleasantville, NY. Good times!

Getting plenty of reps on the training line.

Notes:
Transitional Drills 1 through 6
Discussed about visual sensory... like seeing an attack coming. Can this skill be developed over time? Or is a person born with the skill?

It definitely can be developed over time. With good timing and practice a person can develop that skill-set to see a punch or blade attack or takedown before anything even makes contact. So can we tell when the violence is about to happen? Can we sense when something is about to go down and bloody? Can you visually see the attacker's friends circling/flanking around? Or do we get tunnel vision and just see that one thing that's in front of us. What spiraling signs can you visually sense before the real altercation happens?
