CONGRATULATIONS & WELCOME TO THE LEVEL 3-2 COURSE
Some Figure 4’s

This Course will introduce you to how to apply a figure 4 technique. A figure 4 is definitely not an easy armlock to apply to your opponent.  It is next to impossible to apply if somebody is throwing a punch at you because well thrown punches move way too fast to catch the arm.  That being said, it can be useful in certain grappling situations and if you have the arm in a position where you may find the forearm in a parallel position to the ground.  We will experiment with some of these here and also some escapes if you get put into a figure 4.

After this Course you will have a pretty good understanding of how to apply a figure 4 and how to escape from one as well.

This Course consists of eight individual Lessons that run between four and six minutes. 

The Lessons included are:

Fight Smart Not Hard;

It is important that you initially view these Lessons in the order that they are presented because as we try to present them from easier to more difficult.  Many times the preceding Lessons will assist you in flowing better in the subsequent lessons.

Afterwards, you may want to review the Lessons where you think that you will need more studying.  This is common. Two or three views will be ok, but many, many views will etch the processes in your mind.

Each Lesson you study will add to your knowledge-base and will be able to be used by you in everything you do in your defenses against attackers whether they are armed or unarmed. You will definitely see your skill set improve rapidly.  Remember to be careful in the early stages so as to not hurt your training partner.  He is the one in charge of how hard you can go so respect his wishes.
