Maharlika Martial Arts: Feb 12, 2013

Tonight's class we had split the class into two groups. Guro Joe C. taught TD6 and I taught 3 of 9. I went through different variations after having them go through 3 of 9 w/tapping. They tried left hand mirrors right hand template. After that, they tried picking 3 shots from 3 of 9 and making it flow in an attack. Receiver had to correctly cross-tap each shot. Later, taught left hand defeats right hand template.

Guro Joe Marana also showed me and Joe C. some cool 3 of 9 empty hand feeder techniques.
1. palm down ridge hand to neck or hammer first to right temple
2. ridge hand to left side neck
3. hammer fist to left side stomach or hook to floating ribs
4. elbow or hammer fist down to sternum
5. upper cut to stomach/groin or kick up to groin
6. (maybe) left cross or backfist
7. kick or knee to left leg
8. right hook to rib
9. finger thrust to throat or elbow to head

Tactical Casualty Care Seminar: Feb 3, 2012

I was able to attend a seminar on trauma care hosted by my instructors Guro's Bob Shin and Victor Wong. We didn't have a lot of people come out, but I think that benefitted the group. I liked the video's and pictures that went along with the lecture. It made it more dramatic and got the point across.

The person who presented this information has plenty of experience. Chris Van Houten is a National Registered Critical Care Paramedic with over 20 years of EMS experience in NYC. Nationally, he is the Region One Faculty for the Tactical Combat Casualty Care program which is accredited by the American College of Surgeons.  He delivers medical training to Local and Federal High Risk Law Enforcement teams, members of every branch of the US Armed Forces and develops custom tactical medical programs for multiple federal agencies.

A few pointers that I got out the seminar were learning about our goals in a location where violence is still going on or had happened. First, complete the mission or the neutralizing the threat. Next, treat the casualty. and then prevent additional casualties by assessing other risk.

We also learned about the importance of turniquet's. It's used when massive bleeding occurs from one of the limbs because of trauma like a gunshot wound or a stab/slash of an artery.

I liked the seminar, because we had a scenario that we went through at the end. We had to go in and save two down victims. We had to assess, treat, and then evacuate. I wish we had more time to go through another scenario. Hopefully next time we can get more scenarios to try.
