Wednesday Fencing

A few notes from last week's longsword class.

We revised our current suite of cutting drills, the Mastercut exercise and the first posture exercise.  We added a second posture exercise: Start with left foot forward adopting each posture in turn while saying its name.

  1. Zornhut (Sword over right shoulder pointed at the ground behind)
  2. Wechsel (Sword pointing at the ground at about 90 degrees from the body)
  3. Nebenhut (Hands near the hip, sword pointing backwards)
  4. Pflug (Hands near the hip, sword pointing at opponent's face).

Repeat with right foot forward.

We then completed the plays from Vom Tag, including the Counter.
