    Thanks Brent for putting the time and effort into these classes. It is great to be in AZ and able to train with Brent and the other Masters. I like the idea of being assigned homework and then working it through during the Zoom class. It definitely makes the zoom time more well spent.

    As we discussed, a class idea for a WT audience would be striking with firearms, i.e. pistols, stakeouts and longarms.

    Yes, the combo on the video is trickier than it looks.

    I'll think about what I can do for some power videos/zoom classes. The challenge on this one is that the things that differentiate what I teach is that it's hard to do in this format. It's kind of like a cooking show...you can see the process and get ideas but unless you can taste it, it's just not the same. But I will think on it, it's a good challenge.

    Thanks Don, as always I appreciate the support! You have been a great example for others, coming to the classes and actually doing the homework every week (that really shows by the way).


    These virtual classes aren't the same, I can't give the same level of attention to students, can't go hands on and feel what they're doing, etc. But it's better than nothing and I think there's some good work that we can do.

    Wish I could have made it to this one, but I had too much studying to do (law school finals starting next week). Definitely going to keep an eye on these things, though, in case I have a free evening soon. Semester is almost over...

    Ok, I've been practicing these for most of the day. Maybe its age, or my coordination sucks, but these are much harder than they initially looked. Oh well, keep on truckin', went from really slow to just slow. Maybe tomorrow I'll be less slow :-)
    Thank you for the material !

    Yeah, this one’s deceptively challenging. Keep at it though, it gets easier.

    Happy you guys are enjoying it.

    Reminds me of my kenpo drills. Kajukembo worked this a lot.

    We're doing another class this coming Wednesday. Class this time will be some pretty basic stuff (punches, kicks, blocks), but I will include a couple throwing techniques that might be unfamiliar to folks (specifically from the "nage waza" video in the playlist below).

    I got some requests to demonstrate how the drill might work in practice with a partner. You could do about any variation you want, this just shows a couple ideas.
