Training Journal - Day 8
April 10, 2012
Warm Up- Stretches and light medicine ball work (20 minutes)
Solo Drills- Lunges (lots) lunges with off hand positioning (not as many, but still lots) cutting homework (exactly what was listed on the board - 30 cuts with various footwork) Lunges at a pell from stretissima, stretta, and larga (legs threatened to rebel at largissima)
Partner Drills- N/A
Slow Work- N/A
Full Speed- N/A
What Worked- Body alignment and arm positioning in off hand drills was improved.
What Needs Improvement- Finding my measure in short order, still not able to consistently place the sword where I want to get the right amount of flex with the right amount of footwork (maybe going to far forawrd over the knee?)
Follow-up for Next Time- More body alignment and basics. Sparring and combative drills.
Other Notes-Must procure tripod and adapter for tablet when it gets returned to me. Must also see if I have magical talent, because technology keeps goddamn breaking on me.
