Actions of the Aggressor (Training Partner)
The aggressor should hold the striking pad tight to the body to avoid injury to his own hands or arms. The striking pad should be held in a position so that the person who is punching connects in the center of it.
Lead and Rear Hand Punches
The striking pad is held with one arm through the center straps and the other upholding the top strap protecting the head as shown in figure 2-10. While you execute the punches the aggressor stands directly in front of you holding the striking pad.
The striking pad is held with one arm through the center straps and the other upholding the top strap. The aggressor will extend his hand holding the top of the striking pad, creating a horizontal striking surface so that you can execute the uppercut (see fig. 2-11).
The striking pad is held the same as when executing the lead and rear hand punches. The difference is that the aggressor will turn 90-degrees to the side of the incoming hook (see fig. 2-11).
