Alex Hanning || Lonin || Seattle, WA, USA
Weapons: Arming sword (or messer etc) + Buckler
This class will focus on a number of crucial and underused aspects of the i.33 fight that will be trained against random fast feeds:
- Krucke, and its advantages over Halbshield
- Priest’s Special Longpoint
- So you want to be a “”common”” fighter. Useful tricks to turn up the difficulty of your feed when coaching i.33
- Quirks of waiting, vs entering, the timing of gaining a bind. And from there, the biggest mistake that everyone doing i.33 makes!
The second class will start with a warm up practice of a couple of the Session 1’s paired exercises. We will examine entering into the bind based on asymmetric competitive games that bring out a number of the plays from the text (with occasional detours to describe alternate interpretations currently in circulation).
Requirements: Arming sword, mask, gorget, groin, elbow and decent sword hand protection, moderate buckler hand protection.
