Midweek session for Matt and I today. We have been focusing so hard on
sambo for the last month that it was time to take a break and do some
drilling and bouting with weapons for a change.
1 Dussack…we had two spirited bouts uising the PH leather dussacks.
I can feel these bouts in my legs still.
2 Longsword…just went over some basic binds then worked on them in
real time with resistance.
3 Shillelagh…two bouts with this overly fun weapon. We took up the
mats so we made the rule that we were not to go to the ground. Still
a constant struggle much less strategy and more gagression.
4 Sparth axe…we went outside and reintroduced ourselves to this most
brutal of weapons. It is good to get swinging once again. Have some
serious work with these planned in the coming weeks. Had two fun bouts
with these monsters.
5 Mountain axe..two bout with plenty of smashed hands. These are
really like the shillelaghs in the level of aggression that comes out.
6 E-tool…just one brutal round of shovel sparring. Brutal sums it up.
7 Navaja…two bouts using CS trainers. Been a while, great fun can’t
wait to do it again soon.
Overall fun session. Different energy, weapons vs unarmed, not less or
more just a different feel. Will go back to the mixed workout next
