STRIKING COMBO
Day 11 (Tactic 1/1)

Education
Please review the following sections to improve your understanding and movements.

Quick Facts

Status
Fundamental timing drill.

Objective
By blending one combative into the next, you eliminate any pause or hesitation that could leave you open or vulnerable to a counter strike by the attacker. Not only do you complete more combatives in less time, but you also reduce the moments of stalling or freezing that an attacker can use against you.

Timing
Apply this concept as soon as you are able to strike back, as quickly executing a number of strikes/combatives can be extremely overwhelming and help neutralize your threat.
