Session 10-26-09

Matt had ordered some Cold Steel longsword trainers, they came in, so this was our day to play with them.

It had been a while since any of us has actually worked on any German longsword material. I had been reading up on it for the past couple of months in prep for us starting. We did a quick review of some of the basics….the four wards, the basic cuts etc…

We then worked through a few plays from the bind into the grapple.

After the longsword we threw on our jackets for some sambo…

First off we worked on a throw which was an interesting variation on a thrown we have been doing since we started. I could not hope to put a name to this. We then went over a few variations on this variation:)

We ended the session with some ground work…the sambo switch and the double reversal. Both of these deal with single or double leg attempts that have gone horribly wrong.
