Session 11-27-11

We had a guest instructor this week…Randal Gustitis.

He first took us through some footwork from traditional Northern Russian Buza. This was some pretty active stuff and I decided to do it while holding a 50 lb weight. I am still paying for that. We also worked on some of the defensive hand motions but I really wanted to get some of the footwork ingrained so I can work on it here during solo training.
Here is a look at some Traditional Buza:

We ended the session going over some basics of sword and buckler in the German tradition. My knee was a bit tweaked so I sat out and watched this which turned out just fine. At time si can get more just by watching something like this.

We then went into the house for a nice meal of black bread and borscht. Guest instructors are always welcome and well fed:)
