Up Next in Season 1
Pummel for Underhook
Craig demonstrates how to swim or pummel for the underhook to take the inside position. Practice the drill without resistance. After going through a number of reps, then add pressure.
Craig demonstrates the whizzer as a variation of the overhook to take the inside position. Cut the underhook with the whizzer and maintain posture.
Hand Fighting Bicep Ties
Craig demonstrates how to use the bicep tie to drive the opponent's limb away from you. This is a responsive action to a free swinging knife in a clinch. The wrist tie is also useful in controlling the opponent's limb.
