Congratulations on making it this far into the monthly online training segments.?? By now you and your students should have a good grasp on many of the softer skill sets of FAST that have everything to do with self-defense but nothing to do with striking and hitting. So now we get to hit something! Be sure to watch both of this month?s video segments carefully before applying this class plan in your classes.
