Restricted Punching Pad Drill

The chaotic reality of self-protection means we need to be able to hit hard from any angle and any position. This pad drill is designed to help us develop explosive punching power from non-ideal positions. This drill includes striking while unstable, while kneeling, while sitting, while on our backs, while rising, etc. Additionally, the holder is not permitted to hold the pad flat, horizontally or vertically. This means we need to adapt the strike, and select the striking surface, to match the unorthodox angles presented. This is a very important drill and I hope you find it interesting.

All the best,

Iain
