Reviewed Transitional Drills 1-5 with Dan and Bryant
Reviewed TD 1 with Yonas and learned TD 2

Switched between teaching and drilling with the guys. Talked about how each drill has a theme and not just individual techniques. Each transitional drill teaches the Feeder or Receiver something new, but each one has a concept or theme that can be learned as a whole. These drills can be learned to be ingrained into muscle memory, but it is meant to orient and feel/see different attacks. The transitional drills can also assist our blade observation skills. By seeing a wide range of attacks that can come from a bladed encounter, we can make a correct response to a knife attack.
