DEALING WITH  MULTIPLE ATTACKERS

Work on  positioning after every basic, or technique.  Getting behind one attacker, and putting  that person between yourself and all the other opponents.  At the finish of a self defense  technique, you can push, that opponent into the others. Students should  be able to perform any self defense technique on either side.

TIP: Hit the biggest guy or the leader first.

Kicking the Arm- Often in a multiple attacker situation, one  person will grab your arms from behind, while the other punches.  Block the punch with a Crescent kick to  arm (Student holding focus pad) combined with a Front kick to body (On  Sheild).  Finish person behind with  Interlock or Crushing Hammer.

Combining- Putting two or more  techniques together for Multiple Attackers.
For example:  Students do Step and Chop on one side and Step and Hammerfist on the other, then  reverse it. OR After they finish Tackle Technique and are still in the horse stance pretend someone grabs them from behind and have them perform Driving Elbows.

What a Black Belt Means To Me
By: Benjamin Wenzke

My name is Benjamin Wenzke and I am 8 years old. I asked for Karate
lessons for my 5th birthday. My parents told me that my grandparents looked into several Karate schools and had decided that they liked the way that
AmeriKick Karate Warrington taught. I was enrolled on a monthly basis to see whether I liked it or not — I LOVED it!

The way the Senseis taught me were fun ways. I liked to practice my katas
and techniques at my house. I watched my AmeriKick Kids Karate videos all the
time, so I would get better.

When I first started Karate, getting a black belt didn’t seem that
important to me. I just wanted to have fun and learn something new. When I was a yellow belt and Sensei Alana asked me to join the demo team, I was nervous about being on stage. My first tournament on the demo team was the International Tournament in Atlantic City. It was a lot of fun. We took first place
at the tournament and I took first place in my forms and brought home my
first 5 foot trophy. I have been on different demo teams since then and one of
my goals is to be on the Black Belt Demo team.

I always like to watch the black belt demo teams and higher belts because
they would teach me new tricks and techniques and what I need to know for
my black belt test. They looked like they were having a lot of fun and
practiced well. I would like to do some of their tricks too.

I have made a lot of friends in Karate. A lot of the people who have
higher belts then me have helped me a lot. A lot of times I would stay after
class and watch the next belt class, to see what I needed to learn for my next
belt. My karate friends all cheer me on at tournaments and demonstrations.
Sensei Kevin teaches me in a fun way and shows me things. He teaches me how
to do things right.

Getting a black belt means that I set a goal and was able to get it. I
have played football for the past 4 years and was still able to go to Karate
on a regular basis and keep up with my school work. Sometimes it was very
hard because I got very tired especially after sparring. But in Karate I
learned how to be focused. I learned how to do football and Karate at the same
day or night 3 or more times a week.

I can’t wait to get my black belt and go to the next tournament and
compete!
