Jason and I today…
Lot’s of talking today both about martial arts and unrelated topics. We did get around to working with the tomahawk though. Our method owes as much to Russian entrenching tool as it does to any North American tradition. A bit different than what others are doing I suppose.
I took my big marker and drew a segno on the wall which helped out greatly and we discussed several cutting patterns and adding in footwork as well as off hand attacks with a knife.
Nice ot see the light bulb go off over Jason’s head once he connected the segno to his footwork and defensive material. Easy to assume that everyone can visualize something like the segno but it is not always the case, so this was a nice reminder and now it is up in permanent marker.
We ended with a quick discussion and transference of the axe material right over to the entrenching tool, a weapon/tool than has a place in any car traveling in the Ohio winter.
