Todays class went very well. It started with the basics, then we went through the first ten throws. After the throws I had them compete to see who could score more throws on who. It was pretty darn even.
Then we switched to a kicking exercise to teach ma-ai and entering. Its a very good exercise. They both did well on this. I'd like to see better footwork, but that will come in time.
After that we worked on ground fighting to submission. Both of them are showing improvements.
Then we went to escrima. Block check and counter over and over.
Then blocking exercise.
Its a lot to cover in one class, but its all necessary to becoem a proficient fighter.
Ryan handed me four more CDs. I listened to one already and it was awesome as usual.
