NEOHEMAS Session 7-27-14

Just Chris and I today…

2 rounds shadow boxing
4 rounds boxing
1 round savate
3 rounds focus gloves.
We then worked on getting a lead leg fouette low line off faster and more accurately. Weather was getting rough so we cut out a little early. Minutes later, our power was knocked out.
On Friday Chris was out, we did 10 rounds of striking with plenty of sparring then worked a bit on asp baton using various sources from Scottish Regimental Broadsword to Cossack saber

NEOHEMAS session 7-20-14

On Friday Chris and I got together for some focus glove work and navaja review.

On Sunday, it was just Chris and I again….
2 rounds shadow boxing
3 rounds focus gloves
5 rounds light boxing sparring.
Spending a lot of time getting the overhand in this week since it is a punch Chris does not use often and I live by it:)
Next we worked on some savate, specifically gaining ground with the fouette, coup de pied bas and chasse.
We ended the session with the navaja once again, this time re reviewed and worked to perfect our three most used fighting postures…the Andalusian, the Castillian and the Baretaro.

NEOHEMAS Session 7-13-14

First off on Thursday Chris and I got together for a training session. Chris is still one armed due to a recent surgery so we worked a whole bunch of one armed boxing drills using the focus pads and empty hand. We ended out session with some navaja which we repeated in today’s session.

Today Gary, Jason and I…
2 rounds shadow boxing
1 round focus gloves
4 rounds boxing sparring
1 round freestyle footwork
We then got on our shinguards and had a nice refresher course on savate’s coup de pied bas or oblique kick to the shin.
We ended our session with a focus on delivering the point in our navaja work plus some drills from garrote Larense adapted for the shorter blade.

NEOHEMAS Session 7-6-14

On Sunday it was Matt and I…Mat has been awol for quite some time so we spent a little longer than usual talking before the martial activities. Our plan was an afternoon of single stick. Once Matt found my training spears, our goal shifted.

We spent nearly two hours working through the Cossack spear and Fiore’s spear material. We had several bout spear vs spear and one long spear and buckler vs spear and buckler which was great fun.

We ended the session with some bullwhip…not my weapon of choice but Matt had gotten pretty good with it.

On Wednesday, Chris was out and we spent and hour and a half working through some navaja material. He has an injured right arm and we need to work one handed for a couple of months so considering that he is a LEO and his everyday carry is a cold steel espada…navaja it is!
