The Fend/Flinch -- who is practising

Post  Alan Bec on Sun Aug 27, 2006 10:02 am

1] Do you practise the fend/flinch and how often.


2] How do you practise it.


3] How do you feel about it.

1] Yes - nearly every day

2] Mostly shadow fending, but if I can find a partner I'll do some crazy monkey drills and fending off a slap. Also try and work with the O'Neill cover but not a huge fan of it.

3] Great technique, loads of follow ups!

1] Do you practise the fence and how often. - did you mean fend/flinch? If so then this comes up 3/4ish times a month as a drill....though pops out at other times also

2] How do you practise it. - drills with a partner mostly

About 1x per week, plus when doing bag work a bit.


2] How do you practise it.

With partners in response to boxing drills;
Starting to use "Becket's Fend Drills" TM Laughing
On bag, fend with the non-striking hand as I whale on the bag.


3] How do you feel about it.

(TV commercial "Mum" voice)
I luv it!

First time I tried it I saw how the "attacker" switched from predator into prey mode. His eyes and body language totally changed, as I used the fend to stop his forward drive, drive him back, enter and start attacking.
That sold me, solid, right there.

1. 2 times a week.

2. With Rusty while I'm wearing a fist helmet, poor me.

3. Rusty will try to hit me with a brarage of punches, I put up o'neil cover and close distance and try to get clinch so I can shredd or index.

I prefer to use the 'Crazy Monkey' (Rodney 'Chico' King) for a number or reasons, but mainly becuase of it's use (cross-over) for sport and SD/SP purposes.

[2] How do you practise it.
Every lesson.

3] How do you feel about it.
The 'Crazy Monkey' works so well as you can attack straight from it. The transition from the 'Crazy Monkey' into an attack (inc. Shredding) is just soooo easy.

Take care,

Garth.

I don't pracice this as much as I could. I prefer and "arms out" version, rather than the version you taught at our seminar Alan. One hand goes into their face, and the other jams into their striking arm. It works ok if you go for the wrong arm too, as long as you get close enough. But that is just a personal preference.

I'm going to practice more and up the ante by usong a helmet and getting the tp to come at me full power.

I practice on tuesdays and thursdays, i use the original fence (i think) looks a bit like a boxing stance.
I practice throwing the right hand off it.
I practice it on my own.
I like it.
I thought this was just about the fence - sorry!!!!!

What I like about the Crazy Monkey is that it fits in nicely with what we do (and how I teach it). Rather than describe the differences I'll give the pro's of the CM..... Firstly, the CM isn't 'side specific'. What I mean by that is that it cover's from most angles/directions, unlike certain (after-)flinch responces. Secondly, its very easy to drive forward using the CM. I'm a firm believer in the forward drive. The CM allows for good vision and cover whilst driving forward, parrying with the forarms and striking/driving with the elbows in CQ. Thirdly, you can flinch, cover then strike/clinch/Shred straight from the CM without any trouble. Fourthly, the CM works extremely well in the ring and on the street, which is a bonus for us.

I could show you the differences in minutes, but putting it into words would take hours, and then I'd do a crap job of it! pale

Take care,

Garth.

Ben this might help

http://www.urbancombatives.com/crazymonkey.htm

When i was training with mick Coup recently we used the long cover (spear), seems more natural than the fend and slightly faster and it foocking hurts the other guys arms in the process.

The fend, crazy monkey, and spear all have their own advantages and disadvantages.

Its for people* who dont like to get punched. The mass majority prefer the rolling coz they dont like to get slammed and they play the "game" far to softly for my liking.
Im getting all bitter and twisted but I guess it boils down to me always feeling like I was fighting and that learning grappeling was just a PART of a greater whole. Removed for content.
