Scientific Terms.

1.Muscle memory-memory motor skills.
2.Load-the overall force of weight or mass, also in resisting external force.
3.Illiopsoas- hip flexor of the hip and thigh.
4.Quadriceps- Rectus Femoris, Vastus medialis, Vastus lateralis, Vastus intermedius are all leg extensors.
5.Hamstrings- Bicep Femoris, Semitendonosis, Semimembranosis are all leg flexors
6.Hip Flexors- Iliopsoas, tensor fasciae latae, rectus femoris, sartorius,adductor longus, adductor brevus,
7.Hip Extensors- Gluteus maximus, Semitendinosis, semimembranosus, Bicep femoris, Adductor magnus.
8.Biceps Brachii- Flexor and pronator of the arm.
9.Distal Phalange- the furthest finger part.
10.kinesthetic awareness-The ability of the body to have sense of where the ody is in a known space.
11.pronate- the hand is facing down
12.Proximally- closer to the body
13.Inferiorly- underneath
14.supine- laying on back
15.contracting-the ability of the muscle to activate.

 1. Begin with over under grip on opponent.

2.Must maintain chest to chest contact while trying to rotate and circumduct the right arm under opponent left arm will be flexing while extending forward with legs.

3. The head will shift positions since, the grip has changed.
4. Move slow at first then pick up pace as time goes on. A more advanced is to incorporate body lift with it.  As the video below shows:
Explanation for drill:
   1.Can be used for a warm up drill. Also for muscle memory
   2.Also is used in long time periods to train for arm endurance and overall endurance.
   3. Can become more competitive and make the athletes work hard to actually lock to body lift. This is used to train for endurance of the body and its abdominal muscles, to be able to handle the load of the exercise.

Body Lift

1.Start with pummeling.

2.Then one person goes and flexes hands behind back and locks hands together.

3. Then from stance will extend legs in explosive manner to a plantarflexed foot,lifting the person in the air.

4.Walk a few steps and then repeat for few sets, mostly in interval of minute turns.

Explanation of drill:
  This drill trains your abdomen and lower body, mostly in explosive manner, but it trains hip flexors and hip extensors such as psoas major, and quadriceps and hamstring muscles.


1.Start in stance,which is flexed legs to about 90 degrees, with back locked in place and hands flexed in front of body.
2.Fight for inside position, by trying to grab opponents with flexed hand to Inner portion of biceps brachii and  distal phalanges in order to get inside control.
3. More advanced is to fight for under-hook position.

Used for kinesthetic awareness, arm endurance of the biceps muscles and flexors and extensors of wrist and also for overall endurance.

Angle 2


Start off in stance, legs flexed with back extended over them with elbows flexed in and head extended.Also feet should be shoulder with apart.
