We had a visitor from Oregon that trained with us in Maryland. Warren Dabney used to train with us long time ago but moved up to Buffalo, NY and now to Portland, Or.  In this class, we reviewed transitional drills and templates. We went over TD 1-5 and taught TD 6 to Warren. Later we reviewed template 4 of 12.

It was a good class to review curriculum. Sama Sama is coming up and I'm sure the members and instructors going will be excited. I heard some empty hand curriculum will be taught. I wished I was going, but will have to go next time. Wishing all my friends there to have fun and learn a lot. I'll be asking you plenty of questions when you get back.

Panatukan 1-12
Transitional Drills 1-5
Worked more on TD5 so Bryant could get used to that drill. More reps but with correct responses makes a good drill. Next time he trains we will try to tighten up the drill. I should try experimenting on the Receiver responses and isolate the moves where the Receiver hits back. I think that would make for some good training.

Guro Joe M. went over Atienza Kali Bolo Evolution 1: two man drill. Some of the guys used smak stix to see how certain parts of the drill would feel. For example, the two count for Feeder 1 or the intercept for Feeder 2.  Later in the class, one of the other students wanted to go over Transitional Drills with me. We went up to TD7.
