Emphasizing Covers in your Blocking Technique

If you’ve been practicing the different cover drills, you’re now ready to incorporate the cover into your punches and blocks. Today’s homework is to work on the rising block while focusing on the motion of the cover hand.

  • You may also want to review the rising block technique

Next, follow along with me below and then work it on your own. Work this slowly, so that you’re focusing on precise movement, not on speed or power.
