I'm currently teaching a karate physical education course at the college where I teach. I'm focusing on self-protection content, application of basic techniques, and beginner forms. This is the second semester I'm teaching it, and it has become very popular with the students. They really enjoy applying techniques and learning what the movements mean in difference contexts. It's a joy to teach, and a nice break from the normal academic courses I teach (not that this class isn't "academic," but you know what I mean--kicking, screaming, and punching target mitts is great fun compared to lecturing on this and that...) Anyway, in this video, we are exploring possible ways to use a low block combination as a defense against attempted lapel grabs and successful grabs. I haven't figured out yet how to translate it into a pad drill--still working on that. May have to focus on specific bits and drill them separately on the mitts.
