Lesson plan: Beginning rapier based on Meyer interspersed with discussions of fencing theory. Development of multi-part attack and response drills, starting well out of measure, should appeal to non-beginners.
Started with the usual footwork practice.
Brief review of Meyer's lunge (to the body) and parry.
Discussion of hand orientation and strength of the edge vs flat.
Incremental drill (slowly add steps to build a long sequence): A & B in Eisenport.
1. A approaches B. B lunges when A comes into measure.
2. A parries B's lunge.
