a new dance

At krav maga last night, my Usual Training Partner (henceforth to be known as UTP) came up with a new dance. It went like this:

1 (block to arm)
2 (grasp wrist)
3 (strike to neck)

1, 2, 3 Ow!

1, 2 ... you get the picture!


  1. Funny you should mention that technique - I was doing the exact same thing last night, it represents some bunkai out of pinan shodan!

    Had your UTP's dance gone more like:

    block, grab wrist, strike neck and simultaneously kiai - she wouldn't have heard your Ow! lol. Nothing like a loud kiai to drown out the sound of your partner's pain!

  2. Hi Sue

    To be fair, I probably deserved it. She was holding the pads for me earlier in the class and I kicked hard enough the she whacked herself in the nose. And I laughed. Oops.

    Kiai not the done thing in krav really ...
