FOCUS: CHANGING LEVELS OF ATTACK
throw combinations focusing on attacking all 3 levels (head/body/legs) within each combination. Example: jab-cross-hook to head, rear low kick, followed by switch kick to the body, finish with lead teep. This keeps our combinations diverse and makes it hard for the opponent to know where we are attacking. Also, consider the concept we train where we are using strikes 1 and 2 to set up 3. Same concept applies with this drill.
R4) Entries attacking the head first. Work to the body then the legs, or work head, then legs, and finish on the body.
R5) Entries attacking the body first. Body-head-legs or body-legs-head.
R6) Entries attacking the legs first. Low-middle-high or low-high-mid.
