July 10, 2016 Wyoming Black Belt Class
at Martin's Casper TaeKwon-Do

Instructor: Mr. Giese

Senior Master Martin is at World Camp this week, and asked Wyoming State Director Mr. Giese to teach class. We'll get to work on Ho Sin Sul. Mr. Giese said the way class will work is, he will explain and demonstrate, then we will all try the technique with our partners, and he can come around and help us.
First, a few basics:
* Head Check - look around before you begin working on any technique. It's easy to flip over into someone who is working next to you. Make sure you know where you and/or your partner will end up, that it's an open space on the floor.
* Tapping - when a technique is working, tap yourself, tap your partner, or say "Tap-tap".

"If you don't go to bad places then bad things shouldn't happen."
"Nothing good ever happens after midnight."
Those are a couple of quotes to keep in mind - you are better off to avoid the fight altogether... however there may be times you need to defend yourself, or others around you who cannot defend themselves. Practice these techniques as you would a pattern, and they will be natural reactions when you need them.

* Drill #1 - Stand and Base
* Drill #2 - Gain space. back crawl.
...If you're on the ground, your attacker standing, extend one leg to keep space between you. You can pivot on your butt ckeek, keep one hand over your head for protection.
...back crawl, using both feet to push, going shoulder to shoulder.
* Drill #3 - Stick the foot, hook other foot behind the knee, push & pull with legs.
* Drill #4 - Shrimping
* Drill #5 - Mount. Don't go to your stomach, elbows in close.
* Drill #6 - Bridge.
* Drill #7 - Guard. Don't break the 90 degree rule. Don't lean too far forward or backward.

* Side Mount, If you're on top, keep mass on your opponent. If you're on the bottom, get to one side for breath, never flat on your back.

* Rear mount, don't lock your feet in front of your oppontent.

* Never sacrifice position for submission.

* Chokes - fingers/fingers; fingers/thumb; thumb/thumb. Application.

.Bowing in
Going over the basics for safety
Position if you're on the ground, to keep attacker away.

To defend yourself from the ground - -
Drill #3: Stick one foot in the attacker's hip, hook other foot behind the knee, then push-pull.

Shrimping - -
Drill #4 Shripming - from your back, bend one knee, push with that foot, turning your body sideways (curled shape of a shrimp) to gain ground

Here are the basic positions to start - -
Side mount
Rear mount

Different Grips - -
Thumbless grip

Release from Mount - -
.To release, grip the upper arm, thumbless grip on wrist
Post one leg out to the side you have gripped.
Then bridge, bridge high and hard.
So to review, set the grips.
Post a leg and bridge,
flipping opponent,
Roll to the top,

Now you're in Guard.

From Guard - - then from Side Mount - -
To break the leg grip, hold opponent's arms to the ground,
Knife hand under his thigh,
Wedge his leg over your head, and you're in side mount.
From side mount, place your hand against his hip
to prevent him rolling up
as you switch your legs,
Then roll quickly. . .
into mount..

You can practice this set of techniques like a pattern, from the bottom position of Mount, to Guard, to Side Mount, to Mount.
Now your partner can practice the same set of techniques.

When you are in Mount, to control the person on the bottom, push one of his arms to the ground with both of your hands, tuck your elbow into his neck, bring your other hand underneath his arm and lock it to your forearm with thumbless grip. Drag his arm down, lifting his elbow, as if his hand was a paintbrush and you're painting the floor. Tuck your head in close to your arms and the floor while executing this technique.
Another way to control is to use the palm-heel to turn your opponent's jaw to the side.

Push one arm to the ground
Tuck your front elbow to attacker's neck, reach under his arm,
Use thumbless grip over your own wrist, and 'paint the floor' with the back of his hand..
Another defense from Mount.

Chokes - Never apply a choke quickly when practicing. No one under the age of 14 may have a practice choke applied to them. There are several ways to grip a dobok - or collar - to apply a choke: fingers underneath, thumbs underneath, or one of each.

Hand position - fingers underneath,
thumbs underneath - always
reach deep towards the back,
apply the choke,
lean in.

Or, grip the collar so the fists will apply pressure to the carotid arteries.
Grip the collar, then forefists to carotids.
We have way too much fun in these classes!

As the 'good guy' applying a choke from the rear, if your 'bad guy' is fighting the choke, use a pressure point to the philtrum.
Choke from the rear.
Pressure point application.
If you're the one being choked, get your chin tucked in to keep space, and both hands to your attackers arm.

Mr. Sisco went over the wrist lock sequence that we've worked on several times before. Here's a link to the original work we did on these techniques. Wrist Lock Sequence Scroll down that page to find the wrist locks.
