Just Chris and I today…
Started off like last time working through some knife material using a board as a pell.
2 rounds shadow boxing
2 rounds focus gloves
6 rounds three count cadence drill – 3 variations used.
We then did a little work on forearm guards in boxing, even going back to ancient Greek and Roman pugilism for a nice variation on the theme with some speculative work from the basic fighting stance.
We ended the session working with the kippen, the shorter brother of the shillelagh. We adapted the footpad and cane material to use with the shorter stick, only a few modifications needed to make it work like a charm. We also did some work using double kippens and Chris had a take on it that I had not done before, just a small change in the angle of striking that made it flow so much better than how I was doing it.
