How does Schola Gladitoria drill Gioco Stretto? In what order do you start practicing it with new folks? How much resistance is used non-compliant drilling?

Most queries I've made have been answered pretty quickly. Hence the confusion. But then I popped on over to the Pub and saw there was a bit of drama going on.

...for it concerns a particular difficulty with stretto, in that it is rather hard for participants to ever practise any if whilst sparring if they oft succumb to the rearwards flight that an aggressive, closing opponent may provoke.

Oh, and here's another little simple idle warmup ditty that I adopt to exercise those on the flock who may not be too keen upon or experienced with the distance closing.
