Week of 6.5.2018 – 6.11.2018
Fundamentals – undefined
- Rear Naked Choke Defense – Last week, we looked at using the RNC to control our opponent, take them to the ground and finish the attack. This week we will be learning how to defend the rear naked choke on our feet.
- Back Escape – Risky Side – Last week we focused on attacking the back, and this week we will focus on escaping the back.
- Drills: Guard pull to anaconda guard sweep, smash pass to mount, knee slide to side control, side control to mount
- Takedown: Guard Pull
- Ground: Attacking the Mount
Remember, all intermediate classes start with a hard drilling session. Guard pull to anaconda guard sweep, smash pass to mount, knee slide to side control, side control to mount. Please watch the video below for a detailed look at these drills. On the ground, we are studying how break the closed guard and pass.
Kickboxing – Knees
This week in Kickboxing, we focus on a dangerous mid-range and short-range weapon: the knee. We will look at the mechanics and usage of the straight knee and the angled knee, as well as the skip knee and the barn door knee from the inside position in the “clinch.”
Muay Thai – Clinch, Practical Application
This week, we will continue our focus of the clinch, or in Thai, “plum.” We will use what we learned last week and focus on applying our techniques and concepts in low intensity, low speed, “live” rounds. The more time we spend inside the clinch/grapple, the more comfortable we will become there!

Our Community and Supporting Each Other:
One thing we are very proud of at Easton is the supportive community that all of you have helped to create. Being surrounded by people with similar interests and goals often fosters a community that helps its members to push each other to be at their very best. If you ever feel like you are struggling for one reason or another, or feel your motivation waning, find someone here to talk to about it. Whether it’s an instructor, or another member, open up, and find an ear to talk to. Conversely, please always try to be there for others when you see them struggling, or you if you notice their consistency drop off. Even though all of you are probably very busy, and every day is jam-packed with things to do, when you come to train, try to immerse yourself in the community even a little bit. Surrounding yourself with people yearning for self-improvement can never be an unhealthy thing to do.
