Weapons: Wrestling, Unarmed

Wrestling skills include: Entering, Obtaining Control, Penetration, Takedowns, Ground Control, Escapes and Reversals, and Destroying the Resolve of your Opponent. In HEMA grappling people often get hung up in the tie. The often have a sense of the takedowns that are possible but they do not know how to penetrate- to move from tie to takedown. "Penetration" is to take your opponents centre and it includes the manipulations necessary to create the opening before going in. We will work on penetration skills in this workshop.
