This week at Crossing Fight School, we’ll be going over the last cut from our intensive Hidden Hew Review, the Zwerchhau. Both the mechanics of the cut and its many applications will be looked at, and we’ll also be highlighting its use as a Vorschlag, something that often gets overlooked.

Use cases for the other cuts will also be presented, along with some exercises that should prompt fighters to deploy them. We can often create opportunities through the application of pressure, and that will feature prominently in this class to best illustrate those cases.

I will also be including a new exercise to encourage the use of simple (but effective) single-time counters/counter-attacks, something of great importance in competition, no matter the rule set.

See you all on Sunday.
