  • Parry - Parrying is the process of deflecting an incoming shot from it's line of attack.

Drill Examples:

  1. Block and Parry Drill Watch Example Video

    • After students have demonstrated the ability to perform the Block and Perry, partner the students up and let one student simulate a  punch while the other student performs the block/perry.

      Each student should do it 10-15 times then switch. The partner that was throwing the punch will now practice the block and perry and the partner that was block and perrying will now throw the punch.

      NOTE: Safety is always the most important. The student throwing the punch should know that they are throwing very slow punches. If they are not able to follow instructions they must be asked to sit down and not participate and the a new partner must be assigned.
