We worked defences against straight punches relying on using our lead hand to parry rather than rear hand sophistication.  It might not feel natural however, on some occasions this is going to happen naturally. You won't have the opportunity to move your feet into a guard when something kicks off and your lead hand is naturally going to swat away at anything that comes towards your body.  The plan was to make you realise that you can use the lead hand but you expose yourself to their strong rear punch if you are on the inside line.

After this we looked at some edged weapon work which was again to enhance our lines of attack and give us structure.  We then did the empty hand equivalent.  From there it was onto defending knife attacks with an emphasis on trying to control the attacking arm.  More of this on Thursday night.
