This is a course that is designed to bridge the gap between sport and street in order to be able to use your striking for self defense. NO PREVIOUS STRIKING EXPERIENCE NECESSARY.
It’s not based on “dirty tricks” although there are dirty tricks in there.
It’s not a sport model although without combat sports this program wouldn’t exist.
The overriding focus of Red Zone’s Adaptive Striking Program is to develop a strong base of striking skills that work across platforms. While having it’s roots in combat sports striking arts the goal has been to make sure the application retains functionality when confronted with circumstances outside a sportive context, things like the use of clothing as handles, takedowns, vertical grappling, multiple attackers, and creating opportunity for weapons access while denying opportunity for an opponent to access theirs.

Skills included:

* Building a mobile striking platform
* Fundamental strikes
* Fundamental Defense in long and midrange (and why this area sucks)
* Hitting on the move
* Using strikes and pressure to regain positional dominance
* Countering Takedowns
* Positional Dominance in Attached Striking
* Adding elbows and knees
* Surviving and overcoming sucker punch or “wave” attacks
* Creating opportunities for escape (punching a hole)

All of the above skills are broken down into phases to help students retain the information. Training begins with a conceptual overview followed by introduction of techniques. Techniques are then practiced in a variety of drills using progressive resistance. Finally, the new skills are drilled
in context.
This program fits seamlessly within the RED ZONE PRIME continuum and is an excellent addition useful for patching missteps during execution.
Equipment: Boxing Gloves, MMA Gloves.
