Why I Love This

When I started teaching, a lot of my students would tell me that the one regret they had was not filming their technique before training with me, because once they started improving, they saw such a huge transformation. As I mentioned, this is optional, but for those of you who decide to record your before/after, seeing your improvements through a visual comparison will add such an extra rewarding element to your experience.

Keep It Simple

This doesn’t have to be a complicated process. Just ask a friend to record you or do it on your own and use a mini tripod for your phone. Make sure to do between 3-5 reps in a row. Also feel free to film yourself in between multiple rounds of this guide—you will just improve more and more.

What is a Strike?

The method refers to a Strike (a.k.a Combative) as the explosive, targeted movements with either a part of your body or an object intended to stun and damage an attacker when applied for self-defense.

What is the striking combo?

The challenge combo consists of 4 strikes:

1) Push Kick
2) Near Palm Strike
3) Rear Palm Strike
4) Knee

Below is a breakdown OF THE COMBO

StEP 2

Engage in a Near-side Push Kick. The Near Side is the side that is closest to the target. So if you start with your Right foot forward, you will kick with your left leg.
