Core Training – Lesson 5

Make Him Fold & Drop Him

You can achieve a knockdown anytime you force the man’s center of gravity outside his base at an angle that precludes him stepping to readjust that base. Usually, that’s down and through at a 45˚ angle. Start with injury to remove his strength, skill and will from the equation and then let simple physics do the rest. Knockdowns give us extra “free” injuries when he collides with the planet — sprained/dislocated/broken joints in the hand and arm as well as head trauma.


  1. Work through a session of free practice for each video of Coordination Sets 25 – 28 (four sessions).
  2. Take the time to look for natural opportunities to slot these various knockdowns into free practice.
  3. Do your leg dynamics once a day.
