Re: The 3 Count Chop Drill


Archie let me know how you like it, I personally love it, and it puts a lot more work in your workout. You may need to play with the weight a little to get the action you want but it gives you a more realistic feel of being in a scrap. You can also have a training partner push it towards you and practice shoulder stops, chin jabs, hand yoke, finger dart with whip kick etc. It’s a bad ass workout. You can start with a 30 second balls out beat down and work up to 3 to 5 minutes. You can pick up a training timer for cheap a small one that you can clip to your pants, shirt or where ever. Title has one that is audible and vibrates as well. You can program 1 to 99 rounds from 30 seconds to 5 minute rounds. If I’m doing 3 minute rounds, odd rounds is where I work and even rounds is where I rest. If you want to do 6- 30 second rounds program in 12-30 second rounds put it on auto work the odds and rest the even it will beep or vibrate every 30 seconds so you don’t have to keep track of the time. Let’s say you were working drills from module 2, build a barge of whoop ass, start with a single cupped hand blow, then double cupped hand blow then a couple of shoulder smashes throw in a couple of head butts and maybe a horizontal and vertical elbow or two. Just use the drills and your imagination, visualize an attack and how you would react to it. We all hope for a one strike cold cock if we are faced with an attack, but sometimes that’s not the case. Working the drills like this will get you in shape to last as long as needed, even a 30 second scrap fills like forever if it’s balls out. Also Module 6 is important sometimes you have to take a few to get where you need to be, and body conditioning will let you better take a strike that may sneak in. Module 5 teaches us the best the best thing we can do. But when that is not an option train to be the best damn weapon you can be. Train hard and honestly!
