Holistic Pad Drill: Hit, Cover & Clinch, Throw & Lock

This holistic pad drill covers striking, covering to clinch, a throw Funakoshi called Byobu Daoshi (O Soto Gari), and an arm bar. It's not shown in this video but as a challenging option, have the pad holder decide if they will attack or not. This gives the tori a decision; strike and escape of cover and clinch. Note that is drill is more suited for consensual fighting rather than self defense. Intentionally going to the ground is never advisable when there is a possibility of multiple enemies.

Happy Training,
