Weapons: Unarmed

We will cover the mechanics of takedowns from top-to-bottom, laying a foundation for an intuitive understanding of throwing, to provide a play-based framework and training method to allow the students to improvise takedowns under pressure. We will cover the fundamental groundwork that allows a takedown to happen (balance, alignment, base of support, etc), no matter the style or system, and explore the strategies involved in creating or exploiting the necessary conditions for effortless throws. The smallest students should wind up able to toss the largest, with relative ease, style and grace.
