PETMA Level 1

Striking Techniques

Given the short time and the great variety of people attending the curriculum will be limited to a small number of effective techniques suitable to all:

  • Palm strike
  • Cross  punch
  • Front kick to the knee or groin: push and snap

All these techniques will be performed on focusing mitts and striking pads, while wearing protective gear.

Self Defence against grabs

Many situations of street fighting start from a grab of some kind so having idea how to get out of them is very useful:

  • Wrist grab, mirrored and across arms
  • Shirt/jacket lapel grab
  • Bear hug
