Chris, Matt and I today…
2 rounds shadow boxing
Mats were still out from last session so we jumped right into some sambo before boxing this week. We worked a four stage progression/series of hand attacks to the legs. The first three were a progression of failed attacks and the fourth was a variation. The first of these can be seen here:DRVpEdpbAmM Igor does them much better then we did.
We ended out grappling with some work on the combat glima high single.
2 rounds of boxing…able to slip a boxing glove over my slowly healing busted thumb. Six weeks later and it is stil pretty fat but overall pretty happy to get to throwing fists again.
Beautiful day so we headed outside and worked on the much neglected German Longsword after a short bit of training with the messer. Basic stance and attack work. Focusing on form and movement.
We ended the session with some Footpad and Cane style shillelagh work. Very simple style but still interesting. We went over all stick vs stick actions from the short text. Getting closer to bouting pure FaC style.
