Pre-emptive attack sequence two:


Here we see my student Neil working a nice little pre-emptive flow on one of our home made training dummies. Neil is working from ECQ (Extreme Close Quarters) from a hands held high kind of fence;

Neil's starter for ten is to flank, checking the shoulder as he strikes up under the chin with a vertical elbow strike; this chambers nicely for a Kelly MacCann/John Kary style whipping face smash straight down and through the face; which then sets up the final blow a full on chin-jab smashing the head back.

Usually I like to check the arm on the chin-jab but with this example I found it works better to slap the off hand into the lower back to help break his structure. This was similar to the method taught by Drexel Biddle.
