…..This is a circle drill where one person stands in the center and does not know where the attack is coming from. Ideally the person in the center wishes to gain control of the thrusting arm and neutralize the threat. It is obviously very, very difficult especially because no one is going full force ie. striking, nor does anyone have a real shank, etc. Still the unpredictable factor is pretty good for your reflexes and skill set development!  I know that everyone involved was feeling some adrenaline and trying to neutralize the threat.  Unfortunately, trying does not always succeed especially when you were just shown how to do it effectively.   Though several times people gained some control and or a takedown.  Enjoy!

See You On The Mats!

    Nice drill… Can you break down how to run it a little more?

    Seems like you’re designating the attacker where the guy in the middle can’t tell who you’re signaling to go? And escalating complexity by changing range or adding motion?

    I use a combination of hand signals and touch to keep the defender confused as to where the attack is coming from. I designate number to each attacker and I am constantly moving around and talking to add confusion then I may touch an attacker or flash their number etc. Then the attackers can move which creates another disorienting aspect that the defender must deal with. It makes it very, very challenging for the defender and creates more of an ambush style drill.
