Pummel and Stick

Didn't make it to MT so I stayed for JKD, which is a bit earlier than it used to be since Judo is on hiatus. We started with some pummeling exercises up against the wall, then did some basic stick drills.

I worked with someone near my size (70kg or so vs my 58kg) and on the second round we went a bit harder with an effort to throw/trip/takedown our opponent, or let them know we had them then release. On a failed takedown I got reversed, went for a guillotine and ended up someone banging up my right knee. Had a nice goose-egg on the side that I had to ice when I got home.

* When going for a trip, try getting the outside leg to opposite side to trip them at an angle
* Pivot them towards the foot that is caught

* Once I have the basics of 1, 2, 3 & 4 down start doing them in patterns, such as 1-2-3-4, 2-3-4-1, 3-4-1-2, 4-1-2-3, 4-3-2-1, etc.
* Reverse 1 should be pulling the stick up as if "drawing a sword" (no comment) and then back down at the same angle as a regular 1
* Reverse 1 can come from the left side of the head if I put a bit of a lean on it
* 3 and 4 seem to get more hip power if I lean back the slightest bit
