MINI: Holding Space, Projecting Confidence in the Ring and Out || Joseph Brassey

Joseph Brassey || Grit City HEMA

Weapons: Longsword

This class will be a brief workshop on the concept of occupying space as relates to martial arts. It will focus on some very basic concepts of how to project confidence and intention in order to allow students to use these tools both in fencing and in day to day life. Mask, gloves, and gorget, as well as a longsword trainer (steel or synthetic) will be the only needed gear. Contact will be minimal, but the psychology of grappling with confidence and self-worth can be difficult. Students should come prepared to be open, thoughtful, and compassionate towards eachother and themselves.
