Ace versus 2i. Guard zone steps with playside foot, takes second step goes back to base with backside foot and punches his inside hand through the playside breastplate of the 0-technique. Center zone steps with his inside foot, second step goes back to base with his outside foot, and his third step will be a zone step with his inside foot as he punches his inside hand off the third step, takes his fourth step going back to base, and squeezes his hips with the Guard and pounds his (Center’s) arches through the echo of the whistle.

Triple Option Coaching: Ace Blocking v. 2i

An Ace Block is a double team between the Center and the Guard.

This block is utilized on Triple Option when the action key is a shade, 2i, or 2 technique.

In this situation, the Center and Guard are Ace blocking a 2i technique.

Ace v. 2i

 

1. The Center and Guard both zone step (six-inch lateral and vertical step with the foot closest to the 2i).  In this case, the guard punches the 2i with his inside hand on the first step.  The punch should occur in the 2i’s stomach.  Any higher creates the ability for the 2i to crawl underneath the Ace.

2. The Center and Guard step with the opposite foot to regain their base, and the Guard verticallypounds his arches through the echo of the whistle.

3. The Center takes another zone step–once he invades the personal space of the 2i, he will punch his near hand and vertically pound his arches through the echo of the whistle.

This is how an Ace is executed versus a 2i.
