And now on with the Cabal Fang Workout of the Week.
1. Complete a full Constitutional as follows:
Mountain Climbers (50)
Ab Punches (1 min)
Zombie Squats (100)
V-up Holds (1 min)
2. Drill your self-defense clock for 15 minutes. Have your partner attack you with a dull training weapon from at least 8 points on the clock, all the way around. You should have a defensive counter for every point on the clock.
If you don’t have a self-defense clock, you can use mine. From defender’s perspective as follows:
12:00 Supinating Wristlock (kotegaeshi)
1:30 Top side Wristlock
3:00 Stop Hit
4:30 Hyperflexing Wristlock (“gooseneck” lock)
6:00 Elbow jam to Muffle
7:30 Double Wrist Lock
9:00 Stop Hit
10:30 Master Lock
All of these defenses can be used from multiple points on the clock, but putting them at specific points gives them a home, making them easier to teach, practice and remember.
