First training of the new year! Just Chris and I today…
2 rounds shadow boxing
2 rounds boxing
2 rounds savate
2 rounds focus gloves
2 rounds footwork drills
We then worked on the body mechanics for switching and ripping a hook to the body. The diamond footwork pattern I have in the middle of the floor helps a lot of people out with some of these things. I do need to expand it so I can stop telling people to imagine another line going off in some direction or another.
Since the Saturday crew has been working on German Longsword, I started keeping notes on one of the walls, We got to talking about them and had a nice 45 min session of basics for German Longsword.
Swinging swords brought us around to another topic we had talked about before…gladiatorial martial arts. This is a subject Chris is interested in exploring further and I am up for any sort of violence. SO It looks like some serious research and study for me in the coming weeks. I am looking for online resources first, so shoot em my way if you can. Plan on buying the Col’s book asap but not until I recover form Christmas spending.
