Rhythm drill

Posted by Matthew Chapman on

Once the basic defensive techniques of blocking, slipping and rolling have been learnt repetition is needed in order to make them an integrated part of a fighters skill set. The best drill to provide this high level of repetition is the rhythm drill.

The rhythm drill is used to maximise repetition of defensive skills such as basic blocks, slips and rolls. The fighter throws continuous jab- cross punches at a quick pace. At anytime the pad holder can throw either 

    1. A left body hook
    2. A right body hook
    3. A left head hook
    4. A right head hook
    5. A left jab
    6. A right cross 

The fighter has an option to either maintain a tight guard and block the strike or practice evasions and slip or roll.
