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.


  1. Now you have two comments on your blog. Can you handle the fame?

  2. It might make my head swell up to an even more unmanageable size.
