Actions of the Aggressor

The striking pad should always be held in a position so that the Marine who is performing the technique connects in the center of the striking pad.

Vertical Knee Strike

The striking pad is held with one arm through the center straps and the other holding the top strap to protect the head. Hold the striking pad tight to your body to avoid injury to your extremities. Keep your top hand up to your head to protect yourself with the striking pad. See figure 2-34.

Front and Round Kicks

Use your hand to hold the top strap on the striking pad. Hold it along the back of your leg so all impact goes in the direction of your bent knee. The strikes should never go against the knee during practice, even with a striking pad. The angle of attack changes between the front and round kicks. The angle of attack for the front kick is vertically forward. The angle of attack for the round kick is horizontally forward.
