Yet more dry-fire stuff. Here I am practicing some “up close and personal” situations where I cant push off or punch out. There are various schools of thought about the “elbow drive” vs. clinching vs. headlocks…I just try them all.
In this clip you can see me doing the elbow drive. This is for when the guy is swinging or grabbing at you. You cover your head with your arm and drive into the opponents throat area with your elbow, drawing into a retention position. Im also trying out a fairly new technique I have come across called “the helmet”. Its designed to survive that initial flurry of haymakers by covering the head area with the hands and elbows. Im also practicing drawing from a clinch and from a headlock position.
