Michael Janich and Craig Foushee demonstrate some of the applications of fist loads. A fist load is any tool that you can grip to use as a weapon. This takes the stress off of your fist and onto the object, so you can be more powerful and effective in a closer-quarters fight. Michael shows you the proper technique for cycling between blocking or guarding with your off hand and swinging or countering with your fist load, which can be done backhand or forehand. One of the specific tactics that you’ll learn is the hook-and-pass, which involves blocking and then transitioning from the inside to the outside of the attacker’s body so you can strike.
