Standing Grappling from the Rear
Often we focus our takedown training from the front of an assailant. This makes logical sense as this is where our situations often initiate. Once distance has been closed and upright grappling commences, however, the ability to move to and control an opponents back opens up many opportunities to finish. This presentation will cover several entries to rear grappling from various front clinches and striking range as well as teach a handful of take downs, chokes, and finishes once rear control has been established.
Required equipment: None

He earned his 1st Dan in Hapkido in August 2015 and was an instructor at the IU Hapkido/Self-Defense Club from 2016-17.

Punch Defenses Revisited
Punch defenses are a very valuable part of self-defense and need to be constantly revisited and retrained. We will rep punch defenses from a variety of strikes in different combinations to better prepare ourselves for self-defense on the street. We will be using all ranges, including Close Quarter Combatives to deal with our attacker. We cannot get stuck in a drill mentality that is controlled to a specific combo.
Required equipment: MMA gloves are recommended but not necessary
