Congrats to Ty, who fought for 45 minutes solid last night against all comers and did great.

Yes he did, speedy bugger that he is :P Nice to have someone who's all for closing and grappling. Definitely adds a different dimension to sparring at SG1.

Thanks guys.

Thanks to everyone I fought last night certainly was an experience. Will take on board everything from last night as I move forward with my training.

Thanks again.

I enjoyed last night's Fiore one-handed sword, I think we'll do that a bit more often. Maybe throw some more of the mounted material in and add bucklers!

It was good fun, and a couple of realisations on my part made it make much more sense.

This week is longsword and I'm going to try and teach it in a slightly different way, taking some methodology from the sabre classes, in order to try and get people internalising the techniques better.

Thanks, good to know your feedback - Yesterday's version was only a very simple version of it, but as people get more used to that format we can easily 'inject' more variables and interesting things into it, such as adding more attacks, feints and more options for what happens after the defence. One of the other advantages of that format is that it is easier to train the attackers at the same time as training the defenders, instead of only have the attackers acting like zombie. I think as a drilling method it will make people much more rounded fencers and instill more instictive responses.

(lol didn't expect to see others beat me to giving feedback, glad to see it :))

Sounds good, totally looking forward to it!

For me this really felt like the 'missing layer' on top of which the 'canonical plays'-based learning may be layered in a more meaningful way.

On a different note, the 2nd freeplay session -- the tip-cut restriction shifted emphasis for me in a great direction.

Out of my 2 scored bouts last night, the 1st was tip-cut restricted, and really seemed to have an effect on my 2nd wasn't tip-cut restricted.. BUT I still seemed to be inclined to thrust more and engage closer on the cut.

(..but tbh I don't know whether it was that, or the effects of the class earlier, or my partners having an off-day.. but I found myself fighting more dynamically)

Heh, reflecting on it I think actually it's "E. All of the above"... in any case, I really -really- don't want to to slip down to my usual shitty standard. :|

Er........... 'scuse the long post :lol:
Short version: Good 1st session format + good 2nd session format. :mrgreen:
